I’ve been working on a new project. I’m photographing every roll of film I own on Fuji Instax Mini film. These are the first two rolls I’ve captured and they are part of a new series I’m calling Film on Film. They were shot using a Diana F+ with Instant Back and it took me […]
🔗 A Crash Course in Street Photography “If street photography is sticking your camera in someone’s face and snapping a negative reaction or look of displeasure at having their privacy invaded, then I don’t like it.” I agree with Barnaby. I’d love to ‘shoot street’, but I have no intention of getting in someone’s face. […]
🔗 Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day “We will extend the submission date to include your photograph in this year’s gallery until June 30th.” Tomorrow — April 26, 2020 — is Pinhole Photography Day! This will be my first time participating and I have plans to replace the lenses on two of my medium format cameras with […]
🔗 Couch Camera Straps “These vintage camera straps are made from the actual 35 year old fabric used to upholster mid 1980’s Volkswagen cars like Golfs and GTI’s.” Couch takes old discarded vinyl and seatbelt fabric and uses it to create camera straps, guitar straps, and wallets. I love these straps. I own 4 Couch […]
🔗 camerajunky Years ago, when I first started my adventure in film photography, I came across the camerajunky blog and saw that Gábor was giving away a few cameras — for free! Most were already spoken for but I emailed him anyway and he sent me a Praktica MTL3 with a 50mm f/1.8 Pentacon lens. […]
🔗 FLAVR “The most comprehensive reference for 35mm film.” Ever wonder what photos shot with a particular film stock will look like? FLAVR, the Film Lovers Analogue Visual Reference, answers that question. It features photos taken with every film stock available at the time of publication in 2017. This is a great reference for film […]
I’ve decided to start a new linkblog-style series that I call The Rundown. It’s nothing more than links of interest along with some commentary (which I’m hoping will help me remember why I’ve bookmarked these sites). 🔗 The Big Film Database It is exactly what it sounds like: a big database of film brands and […]
I like shooting rare and expired film. I like it when I discover an old film that not only still produces good results, but also has a unique look or color palette. These are from a roll of Valca Grano Fino Positiva cinematic film that I purchased from Labeauratoire. Since Valca has a recommended ISO […]
In the summer of 1991, I took a family trip to Italy for a cousin’s wedding. These were all taken from the balcony of the house where I stayed in my father’s hometown of Bagnoli del Trigno. It’s a tiny little town in the Italian region of Molise.
As we paddled along Widgeon Creek, one of the guys spotted a tributary to the creek. Despite the clear “Do Not Enter” sign and the chain across the entrance, we decided it was worth a further look. The water level of the creek was just high enough over the chain that we could paddle our […]
My first trip to Widgeon Falls was back in July 1994. My friend Kevin was getting married and he really wanted to do this hike for his bachelor party. So we rented some canoes and paddled across Pitt Lake past Siwash Island to the entrance of Widgeon Creek. But that was only the beginning of […]
Here are some more photos from the 1991 Stein Valley ‘Voices for the Wilderness’ Festival on Seabird Island. Many bands took the stage that weekend and sadly I can only remember one of them: Spirit of the West.
In July 1991, the Stein Valley ‘Voices for the Wilderness’ Festival had relocated to Seabird Island. I met up with some friends at the festival that weekend and shot these photos of the guys doing some face painting and body art. These were taken with my old point & shoot camera and a roll of […]
Here are some more photos from my trip to the Oregon coast in the late ’90s. I shot almost exclusively with Fuji film back then because I loved Fuji’s colour palette with its saturated cooler colours. Incidentally, back then I didn’t like Kodak film which had a warmer tone. Today, it’s quite the opposite. While […]
From time to time, I plan to post old photos I took decades ago before digital cameras. I call this series From the Past. These photos were taken at the Oregon sand dunes back in the late ’90s. I had an old point & shoot camera back then that I had painstakingly saved up to […]
