Still Life and Motivation

I've hit a little dip in my creativity lately, not for a lack of desire, but just simply having too much going on that's affecting me. When I have a lot of of health issues happening at once I tend to get depressed, which understandably affects my motivation to do anything else. It's strange because… Continue reading Still Life and Motivation

Expired Film: Kodak Panatomic-X

My good friend Mike Eckman sent me a roll of expired Kodak Panatomic-X black and white film to shoot, with a small warning that I was going to hate him for it because I would love this film and would not be able to find anymore to shoot with. Knowing this, I held on to… Continue reading Expired Film: Kodak Panatomic-X

End of 2021 Wrap Up – Goals for the New Year

First Thoughts – Fujifilm GF670

I've been trying to find a medium format camera that suits my needs and style of shooting for a while now. I have a Pentax 67 that I'm using mainly for a project that I am working on, but I wanted something a little smaller and compact.

Developing Adventures – Kodak Tri-X with Kodak HC-110 and Ilford DD-X

I purchased Ilford's Ilfotec DD-X on a recommendation to use when I was pushing film, such as the time I pushed Fomapan 400 to 800. I've also purchased Kodak's HC-110 to develop Kodak films such as Kodak Tri-x and TMax. I just like the look these pairings give me. However, I wanted to see if… Continue reading Developing Adventures – Kodak Tri-X with Kodak HC-110 and Ilford DD-X

4 Shots – Ilford HP5 400 in Medium Format

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

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

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.
