1. Kodak TMax P3200 Film to be Discontinued :(

    Due to low sales volume, Kodak is ending production of KODAK PROFESSIONAL T-MAX P3200 Film (TMZ). The demand for ultra-high speed B&W film has declined significantly, and it is no longer practical to coat such a small volume of product.” 

    This sucks. Its the only (ultra) high speed film I used regularly. Although I have recently decided to switch to Delta 3200, I am saddened by this news. Time to stock up, bitches.

  2. In The Shadow Of Blackbirds

    I’m please to be able to finally show you the cover art that I did for the upcoming (April 2013) novel, In The Shadow Of Blackbirds by Cat Winters, published by Amulet Books/Abrams. The Beautiful design is by the awesomely talented Maria Middleton.

  4. Been working away, busy season seems to have stretched over into summer this year, which, I guess is nice. I have a couple of new pics coming along. More shoots in the coming weeks, so have no fear, it wont just be instagram pics of my cameras for much longer!

    Speaking of pics of my cameras, heres a random picture I found in one of my old folder. Its my very first “Professional” DSLR (its professional coz it says so on the body ;). The Kodak DCS 315 with a whopping 1.5mp sensor! That was some serious shit back then (I think it was 1998)  If I am remembering correctly, this camera cost me about $2500 bucks! Built off a Nikon Pronea 6i SLR, it was nothing more then a piece of shit consumer camera with a rubberized brick glued to the bottom of it. My old Motorola Razr cell phone took better pictures! Ok, maybe not that bad, but pretty bad. Though there are a few shots from this camera that I still enjoy and keep in my portfolio to this day, in particular the “Unknown To Me" series from last years 365 project. Ahh, those were the days…And what the hell was with that piece of shit zoom lens on it?! I guess I was always a Tamron fan :)

    Good lord, this thing’s storage were PC cards!

    Anyhoo, yeah, more fun stuff to come! So dont give up on me just yet!

  6. Polaroid 195 Land Camera on Flickr.

    Been missing the hell outta this guy lately. I had to sell it off a couple of years ago. I dont currently have a good working polaroid camera. It’s sad. I dont know what I’ll do….

     

  7. All Good Things… on Flickr.

    Sold my Mamiya RZ67 PII today. Gonna miss the shit out of it. But you know me, gotta keep on keepin’ on…

    This is one of the last polaroids from the camera. I had a few left in the pack that I had to finish off. Pardon the dusty scan.

     

  8. This is Elena & Eli, two awesome peeps that put up with my crap :)

    Both are wearing neck ruffs that I made. I want to make more, we’ll see, theyre kind of a bitch to make.

     

  9. Its been months since I’ve had a moment to post anything here. I’m sorry for that. I hope to have more content soon. Theres a few images some of you might not have seen, that I have waiting in the wings, I just wanted to get a few more done before I presented them. But with work ramping up, I dont know when that will happen. But stay tuned!

    Ive been shooting film a lot more lately, which has been really fun. Its nice to be developing my own film again. Its been way too long since I’ve done it regularly (about 15 years!) It was just like riding a bike! So nice and easy to do at home. I highly recommend it to all you lil punks out there that have never tried it before. There are a ton of resources on the internetz to baby step you through it. I know walmart will do it for you for cheap, but just save a couple of rolls and give it a shot, you wont be sorry, AND you can go around telling people youve done it. That alone, Im sure is worth the hassel — Fuckers :P

    Anyhoo, For now, I just wanted to post a couple of camera portraits that I took today. I’m getting ready to thin out my collection, and these two 6x7s have been been put on the block. I know ultimately, one will get a stay of removal. I love 6x7 too much to stop shooting in this format. I cant justify having both, but which one…

    Both have their stronge and weak points, but I think when it finally comes down to it, I’m going to have to stick with the cheaper, more versatile, (and sexier) kit (Pentax 67). The Mamiya shoots like a dream and is probably the best film camera Ive ever owned. But it’s just too expensive to maintain and build. I can and often do take the Pentax 67 out with me, cant do that with the RZ67, its just way too big. Also I only have 1 lens for the Mamiya, a 110mm f2.8 which rocks. I would love more, but RZ67 glass is too expensive for my limited budget. Whereas P67 lenses can be had for a song! In general their optics arent as good as Mamiya’s, but theyre good enough. Especially when your piss poor.

    It’s really cutting me deep that I have to get rid of the RZ67, but times are tough and I need to keep feeding my ravenous addiction. I need me an X-Pro1! I want to invest in a descent carry around digital camera with a VF, rather then keep a camera I’ll only use a few times a year. I think itll be a wise exchange….maybe?….

    Ok, that’s it, just wanted to shoot a update to y’all. I’m not dead. Just busy and stressed and blocked up and whatnot.

     

  10. 365

    Welp, that’s it folks. Its done. Thank you all for spending the year with me. I couldnt have done it without you :)

    I hope you all have a safe and wonderful new year! Happy 2012!

    This week we take a look at some pictures that (for whatever raisin) didnt make the cut in previous weeks during this project. This is a nice way for me to be lazy and do another mixed week, while at the same time, use some scraps that I didnt like enough the first time around :D

    Enjoy! (only 1 more week left!)
