Recently, I was contacted by the Light company and asked about my favorite location to shoot as part of their #VantagePoint project. It made me realize that I don't really have one favorite location. I have several, and they're all outside. I'm not opposed to shooting in a studio, but I definitely prefer to be outdoors.Read More
The dual sensor camera system on the iPhone 7 Plus brings all kinds of benefits to iPhone photography. Optical zoom is always better than digital zoom, and even digital zoom is made a little better by the increased focal length.Read More
Kayla and I have canceled far too many shoots due to rain over the past year or so. So this time, we actually planned for a rain shoot.
Naturally, it didn't rain.Read More
I love my [Polaroid cameras]. I don't love that it costs me $3 every time I press the shutter button, so I picked up a Fujifilm Instax Wide 300 on Amazon the other day.Read More
A few years back, I managed to score a free Canon AE-1 on Craigslist. It needed a little work, and I finally took it in to Blue Moon to get it fixed. They had it back to me earlier than promised, and I can't wait to run a roll through it.
I'm not what you'd call a purist when it comes to film. I love my digital cameras, but there's just something about the fully mechanical nature of film cameras that can't be imitated by digital. Between this, my Yashica (which I now realize I've never written about,) and the three instant cameras that are now in my collection, I think my film fix is satisfied. If you've never shot film, I'd highly recommend picking up an old 35mm or medium format camera just to experiment. It'll make your digital photography better, I promise. If you're in Portland, go browse the selection at Blue Moon. They're great people who wont't try to push you into buying something you don't need.
I had the opportunity to shoot Kayla again. As always, she was awesome to work with. More images after the jump.Read More
