I am very… Continue reading Photography Through the Pandemic – A Photo book featuring myself and 48 others

the Nikon Nikkor-S 50mm f/1.4 Auto

This will be my first lens review. It's fitting that it would be a review for the Nikkor-S 50mm f/1.4 because it is one of the first lenses I purchased when I started shooting again. Why is a Good Lens Important? When I first got back into shooting film I was really a noob when… Continue reading the Nikon Nikkor-S 50mm f/1.4 Auto

Developing Adventures – A Roll of Expired Kodak Gold 200

In this Developing Adventure, I wanted to share my results with developing my first roll of expired Kodak Gold 200.

Developing Adventures – A Roll of Lomography Lomochrome Purple

I've had several rolls of Lomochrome Purple in my fridge since it was first released. I've never shot with it because I don't find many settings that would fit a specialty film like this. However, the other day, Mario Piper mentioned in the comments of one of my Fiddle Fig Leaf plant photos that it… Continue reading Developing Adventures – A Roll of Lomography Lomochrome Purple

Fujicolor 100 – the Fuji Blues

Every once in a while one of the stores that I purchase my film from will get in some Japan imports. In the past I purchased Fuji Industrial 100 from them. That has since been discontinued. This time they had some Fujicolor 100 film. Since I really loved Industrial 100, I couldn't pass up the… Continue reading Fujicolor 100 – the Fuji Blues

At Home Photography

Seeing without judgement and with compassion is what makes a good photographer. I would argue it is also what makes a good person.

A Photo-Walk Around the Block

Something all photographers feel from time to time, especially when first starting out, is a lack of inspiring compositions in their own town. "My neighborhood is boring. There's nothing interesting to photograph." Sound familiar? I think the reason we feel this way is because we assume good photography is scenes of poverty, or beautiful landscapes.… Continue reading A Photo-Walk Around the Block

Developing Adventures – Double-X in D96

In this Developing Adventure, I developed a roll of Cinestill Double-X in D96 B&W Motion Picture Developer. I shot it with my Mamiya 645 at ISO 200. If you read my last Developing Adventure featuring Double-X film, you'd know I really fell in love with the look of this film. At over $10 a roll… Continue reading Developing Adventures – Double-X in D96

Back to 9/11 – Ground Zero on Fuji Superia 800

I remember wondering were the planes out of control? What the heck is happening? Then the news anchor, describing what we were watching, said (I am paraphrasing from memory) "As you can see, there's people trapped in the buildings and they're throwing paper and furniture out the window..." They paused. "Oh my god, thats not furniture, those are people. Oh my god. People are jumping from the Twin Towers." My stomach sank I will never, ever forget that moment.
