On the Street Where You Live

Did you try to shoot the lunar eclipse?  Or at least see it?  No luck for me- but the clouds that obscured the moon did make for interesting photography.

Beach Football

On our last evening at the beach, a large family had come in for a wedding, and were gathered for a few hours just playing, catching up, and having fun.

Brody Runs

There's nothing like those first steps into the Atlantic Ocean after you haven't felt it for a year.  We've been gone from there for a few weeks, but Brody has already planned to spend the whole summer there next year.  Yeah, that isn't practical little guy, but it sure is a great idea.

Dresser in Evening Light

Do you remember back in the film days when you were itching to get a roll developed, but still had a few frames left?  What did you photograph to get to the end of the roll?  I remember my mom always taking pictures of our house with the last few frames.  The more money we put into our house, the more I want to photograph ours!  Ha...the joys of home ownership.

Anyways, back to this photograph.  I'm fascinated by our quartersawn oak furniture, and I just couldn't help photographing it on a July evening.

View From Above

Film Image- July 2015.  Kodak T-MAX 100, Mamiya 645e camera body, Sekor 45 mm F2.8 C S lens

The summer of 2015 has been the year of film for me.  I purchased a medium format Mamiya which produces a 6x4.5 cm negative with 120 roll film.  What do I like the most about film?  With each emulsion, I feel like I'm shooting a totally different camera.  Just think if we could swap sensors in our digital cameras!  So far, my favorite film stock has been Kodak Portra 160 for outside and 400 for inside, but I've also been exploring black and white photography.  I use Dodd Camera to process my film, and scan it with the Epson V600. 

Why all this film use?  Well, it is really fantastic, but I have the folks at the Film Photography Project to blame.  If you haven't listened to their podcast, now is the time to start if you have any interest whatsoever in getting your old film cameras up and running again.
