I really like photos taken in the rain because it is a venue not very much captured -- and as luck would have it we had days and days of rain falling on a Saturday where I could take advantage to shoot.  As I was driving downtown - and as if it was planned - here was a colorful umbrella traveling the sidewalk on South Temple Street. As much as I could - I got head enough in the car in order to pull over to take some frames.  The s...

There is a difference between Digital and Film.   * Digital is freeing - liberating - no development cost - easy - instant - shoot all you want - all you can eat. * Film is constraining - concerning - costs more - unknown - difficult - non instant - takes  chemicals Both aspects have their plusses - but man - the digital side sounds like Crack Cocaine - I'm being facetious of course.  Don't do drugs. If you are s...

The English Bulldog who joined us mid April.  She's been a ball of fun - farts a lot and can let out a belch after drinking a bowl of water which would make a Frat House proud. She's now twice this size of 10lbs. You go Girl !!! Nikon F100 - 50mm f1.4 - Kodak Portra

A paradise in and of itself -- let alone when you are carrying a camera.  Taken from the beach of the house we were fortunate to be renting for the week.  Can't wait to go back.  This is Ilford Pan-F 50.  I'm not a big fan as the sharpness seems a bit lacking - It was a an experiment of sorts - I'm now sticking to Ilford's Delta series.  Either 100 or 400.

A cedar plank salmon smoking, is a back yard favorite - and on a whim I shot the event and the captured tones blew me away. The smoke tones, during this evening really gave way to the power of the monochrome - and this became a good learning moment of trying to recognize what BW can really capture.

Here's Lola again - with my wife Madeline. When Lola was around 10lbs.  I love this image - combined with the look of film this brings me to a "Madmen" type scene -- with the hat and film base it looks like something from the fabulous 1950's.   No lies here -- I don't know how fabulous the 50's really were as I wasn't born yet -- but I can't get over the nostalgia this image brings.  Too bad the cars are in the background - else it ...

Scanning film in the digital age Coming at this as a newbie months ago, I really schooled myself about scanning services from labs:  what they offer for resolution and pricing.  None of which is standardized.  And the idea of scanning my own developed film.  Here's a quick distillation of my findings. Scanning film becomes a confusing subject in this recent world of digital photography - as really the only purpose of the film scanni...

The awning says it all - below it are the shops which reflects such, of which I didn't notice.

Holgamods 612 Pan

I’ve been off the net for a while.  Last weekend, always an emotional event (see my March 28th post, been there done that), and i picked up a new camera and that had my attention also.  

Since shooting film I’ve been fascinated with going with a bigger negative.  But - with that comes economies of scale and I haven’t wanted to quite approach that subject.  Instead I decided to pursue staying with 120 - and that means going wider.

Enter the Holga Holgamod 612 Pan.  Developed by Randy Smith of www.holgamods.com - he takes a HolgaPan and mounts a large format 90mm f6.8 lens and all you have a stunning capable panoramic camera shooting a 6cm x 12cm negative.  

Here’s a test image - on Ilford HP5+@f32- and a video I put together of the camera.
