A digital tribute to film

I spent a day this week back in the darkroom getting ready for the Holga workshop I’m teaching with Roberto Rosales in July. I felt compelled to shoot some details around the darkroom with my 5D while we developed the film. If you are a digital photographer and never spent much time working in the glow of the red light, then you may not appreciate the images. If that is the case, you don’t know what you are missing, and you should really take the workshop.

Summer time pool peace portrait

I spent a few days making pictures of two of my favorite people, my nieces Kyla and Alanna. Mostly I shot bw film 120 film with my Holga, but it might be weeks before I am able to process it and print or scan it. For now, here is an underwater shot with my Canon G9. If I didn’t have the underwater housing, I doubt I’d still keep the G9.

GF-1 review in the mix for Tortuga

Motel, Route 66

I had a chance to try out the Panasonic gf1 for a few days last week. Right now I’m working on a review for Tortuga’s blog which should be done in the next couple of days, but for now I thought I’d share a picture from my wanderings with the camera last week. This picture is straight out of the camera, just downsized for the web.
