It’s been difficult to break away from shooting film, and I haven’t been able to let go of my Holga. For so long I just wanted pixel perfection, and the highest fidelity possible in my photos. But now it seems that I’ve relaxed a bit and am finding magic in the imperfect. This series is a depiction of that overall sentiment. I hope you can see some of the magic that I feel from these images. Thanks for clicking!
Another roll of cross-processed Holga images that I picked up today at Photoworks. I am a happy customer. This is Provia 100 ISO medium format color film, later cross-processed. I’m moving on to Velvia medium format film next to see if I can achieve a more red/pink tone quality. I still like the green tint to Provia, but will now aim for a warmer scheme. Thanks for clicking.
Here’s the latest from my cross-processed Holga adventures. Mad props to Photoworks for supporting medium format processing, and for their TLC. It’s not so easy to control a Holga. You have to approximate the focal length and the shutter speed varies so a crisp shot is tricky. I was lucky enough to get five usable shots from this particular roll. The film was cross processed, which in good light creates a cool green tonality. Thanks for clicking!
Film is fun. Here are some Holga images using Fuji Provia medium format film, which was later cross processed at PhotoWorks.
Everyone loves to hate on what are referred to as “hipsters”, but why all the hipster angst? Maybe a nice pair of ten dollar sunglasses would do you some good? It may be worth a shot.
I visited the Oakland Zoo yesterday. There were buddies everywhere.
new filters on some old photos. these portland pics get a sparkly pixie-(pixely?) dust rain to imbue them with new feelings, shapes, meanings, and ideas.
[photoshop has no play here; the original snaps were run through Apple's Quartz Composition Filter]
This series is comprised of eight photographs, each of which is a reflection from a glass surface. I was originally inspired to begin shooting reflections in 2003 when I found Ojo Blanco on fotolog.net and on flickr. You can really get a strikingly surreal image from reflective surfaces, but especially from glass. Glass offers a relatively clean merge between what is in front and what is behind the glass. No photoshop was employed with these images, except some basic contrast adjustments. Enjoy! And thank you for clicking.
