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

Kodak Ektachrome – Landscapes

In my last article, I shared my first roll of Kodak Ektachrome E100 film. It consisted of all portraits of Kelsey that I really loved, and fell in love with this film. I mentioned in the video that I wanted to try Kodak Ektachrome landscapes next, so that's what I did. 1987 Ektachrome 100 ad… Continue reading Kodak Ektachrome – Landscapes

5 Shots – Hasselblad 500 CM and 150mm lens

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.

Saying Goodbye – Moving & the Next Chapter

After my parents moved us from New York to Florida, they were divorced when I was 3, and from then on my mom had to move us from rental to rental each time the rent was raised.

Lomography Color Negative 100 – My First Shots

I have shot Lomography CN 400 and 800 a lot lately. Normally, I don't have low ISO films on hand because I shoot most of my photos indoors. On this particular day, Kelsey and I were cleaning up our backyard while Frankie ran around and I really wanted to take some photos of him being… Continue reading Lomography Color Negative 100 – My First Shots

Creativity and Managing Mental Health

Lately I have been fighting a bout of depression, self doubt, and just an all around lack of motivation to create. The other day Kelsey pushed me to go out and take pictures because she knew it was what I really needed to do. I took my Hasselblad to Tradition, FL and it really did… Continue reading Creativity and Managing Mental Health

Developing Adventures – Kodak Tri-X 400

Kodak Tri-X (or Kodak TX) has been a tough film for me to develop. It is a contrasty film, so I have come to learn that it doesn't just automatically look that way. It needs to be developed and agitated a certain way to introduce that contrast. If you go to the Kodak Alaris site… Continue reading Developing Adventures – Kodak Tri-X 400
