Contact Prints

This weekend I finally got all the things I needed together to make my first contact prints.  I’ve been thinking about this idea for several years now, quietly.  Ever since I first thought of getting a pinhole camera in 2011 I’ve thought about making contact prints.  an image featuring the first 4 prints are attached […]

Jilli Artistry

Last month I worked with a wonderful and extremely beautiful model name Jilli who was visiting Hawaii and simply wanted to shoot some nudes.  The shoot overall was fantastic.  we started out the morning at sunrise shooting medium format film and digital on one of my favorite beaches to shoot on followed by a shoot […]

Pinhole nudes

On a recent shoot I brought the pinhole camera with me.  I wondered what i might get from the camera with a model as the subject.  Up until this day most of my exposures that I’ve made with the camera had been somewhere around 3-5 seconds. I figured that my model would be able to […]

New camera…

I’ve become a film junkie… what can I say!  At the beginning of this month I ordered the Konstrukctor from Lomography. The idea of a DIY camera was kinda interesting.  It was only after I realized that the camera was going to be late that I ordered the TLR from Amazon.  So in all fairness […]

I was just about to write a post about the new camera I got yesterday when I realized that I hadn’t posted any pics from the latest shoot!  sorry about that….  I’ll post about the new camera tomorrow… These were from a shoot I did with a wonderful model whom I’m going to have to […]

Recesky DIY TLR…

Last night I got home kinda late after shopping for a new printer.  I killed mine the other day when in the middle of a print job it started printing photos with a red cast.  and that was with new ink!  Anyways… I got a new printer and began setting it up when my housemate […]

Shooting with Y

On Saturday I spent the morning shooting with Y.  she was amazing in her beauty and a wonderful spirit as well.  We started talking on our way to the location and immediately clicked.  I had brought with me three cameras.  My usual Canon T2i DSLR, along with the Canon AE-1, and the Diana Mini.  I […]

Diana Mini – First roll of film

The other day I got a chance to finish shooting the first roll of film in my new Diana Mini.  Since I had the afternoon free, I went to a mountain top park near where I work and finished off the last 12 shots on a 36 exposure roll of Kodak Tri-x I had put […]

More film goodness

I’ve been shooting film lately… a lot of film actually!  And if you’ve read previous posts you might know that I got into shooting film a few years ago on medium format.  Originally I was shooting with a Diana and I stopped for a while when I moved to a new place.  As I wrote in […]

Latest shoot…

Well I just got back from a trip to Arizona where I spent some time with family but I did get a chance to spend time with a photographer friend of mine and we worked on a shoot together in the desert that was a lot of fun. Sure it was a little hot but […]
