El Salvador: The forgotten 120 rolls

 (Steven St. John)

While it’s not Capa’s Mexican suitcase, I did get a call from the lab reminding me to pick up some rolls of film I shot with my Holga in El Salvador, 2010. We don’t need no stinkin’ Instagram!

Can you see the moon with that thing?

 (Steven St John)

Be sure to make time tonight to look up at la luna tonight, I hear it’s pretty big. I’m still hoping to make a better picture than this, but we are under cloud cover right now, and not good, big interesting looking clouds either. So, I thought I’d share this to show how close a 300mm stacked with a 1.4 and 2x converters looks, with a bit of a crop. Not the worlds greatest detail, but kinda fun to look at. Just need an airplane to intersect it now.


Happy Presidents day


I couldn’t resist making a few frames of President Obama with my iphone when he was in Rio Rancho back in May of 2009.

Gabe + Angie Photo-Booth (Take your own dang photo)

This was the first time anyone took up my offer to set up a photo-booth using my pocket wizards at a wedding, but I doubt it will be the last. This is just a small sampling of the the fun photos that friends of Gabe and Angie made of themselves, 24 of my favorites, but there are so many more winners. You can see the rest by visiting my online photo archive where you can buy lovely square prints by clicking add to cart. The regularly scheduled documentary wedding stuff that I make will be the subject of another upcoming post. Stay tuned.

Central Ventana

I’ve been so busy lately, I haven’t had much time to update this blog. Lots of work of late, a blessing. For now, here is a photo from tonight, made with my new Panasonic GF-1, a great new addition to my camera family. More on that soon. Here a waitress cleaning tables as Route 66 / Central Ave. is reflected in the dirty window. I love having a little camera that can capture that kind of detail in that kind of light.
