I have only one neighbor who puts up halloween decor on her lawn. I didn’t grow up celebrating holidays so I guess you could say I am kind of drawn to them now. Not so much their meaning, but more so the traditions and celebrations they include. I have taken pictures of her lawn ghosts… Continue reading One Shot with Aly – Halloween
I thought I would start a new series on here so that I could share more of my everyday photos with you outside of my proper reviews and articles. It will be several shots from a roll of film shot with whatever camera I am playing with that week. This week I wanted to share… Continue reading Four Shots – Hasselblad & Ilford Delta 400
If you’ve been reading my blogs for a while, you may remember a former One Shot article I wrote called Avocado Season. In it I talked about the method I use that my dad once taught my mom before he passed away to grow avocado trees. I also mentioned that I have a 15 year… Continue reading One Shot with Aly – An Avocado Baby
Lately I’ve been shooting a lot more medium format than I usually do. I’m still basically shooting with my 35mm cameras everyday, but sometimes I just crave the beauty and clarity of a medium format photo. So I shot a couple rolls with my Pentax 67 and Mamiya RB67. Here are 4 shots of Ilford… Continue reading 4 Shots – Ilford HP5 400 in Medium Format
This week, I thought it would be fitting to share some shots I took from another roll of Lomography CN 800 film since I posted my review last week. If you haven’t read that one yet you can catch it here. Kelsey and I often drive to the town next to ours called Tradition, Florida.… Continue reading 6 Shots – Lomography CN 800 in Tradition, Florida
This election season was nuts. I think we can all agree on that, but that may be the only thing we all can seem to agree on. I have mentioned in the past that I grew up in a certain religion that didn’t allow a lot of things, and one of those things was involvement… Continue reading One Shot with Aly – Election 2020
In this Shots article I wanted to share 5 frames from a roll of Lomography CN 400 shot with my Hasselblad 500 CM and 150mm f/4 lens. I haven’t yet done a review for my Hasselblad or the 150mm lens because I’d like to use it more before I do that. So far though, this… Continue reading 5 Shots – Hasselblad 500 CM and 150mm lens
Being a Floridian, the heat and humidity become so unbearable this time of year, not to mention the incessant downpours, that I will have to become really creative if I want to scratch that itch of taking photos daily. So I set up a black velvet sheet, with two light boxes, a tripod, and took many shots with some sunflowers.
While I know it is just a tree, to me it is much more than that. It is symbolic for the comfort and purpose nature really serves for us humans as we experience imperfect tribulations all around them.
The shot above was taken with my Rolleiflex Automat while the Rolleikin was still installed, so this is 35mm Ilford FP4 125 film. You can read more about that set up here. This typewriter was passed on to me from my Great Aunt Frances before she passed away, and the hat was given to me… Continue reading One Shot With Aly – Typewriter on FP4
