This image turned out way more contrasty than I originally envisioned it to be. I should hardly be surprised as the lighting was pretty harsh. I got to this location far later into the day than I originally intended and the sun was blazing without hardly a cloud in the sky. It was one of those days where even just looking into the viewfinder one felt like your retinas were going to burn to a crisp from the harsh glare of the sun.Read More
I decided to be a little bit different this morning and brought a digital camera with me to a photo session. I’m really not sure why. I think I just wanted to mix up my life a little bit and do something different. It felt a little odd to photograph a scene with a digital camera and it feels even more odd to be posting an image I exposed less than two hours ago onto this blog. What a crazy modern age we are living in! Well ok, everyone else has been living in this modern age for quite some time.Read More
Just playing around with a video I put together of a quick adventure out into the Columbia River Gorge with a Zero Image pinhole camera and one single role of Fomapan 100 film.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I’m not a particularly skilled or great video editor but this was fun to put together anyway!
Late last week I took a trip down to Silverton Oregon with a friend to visit The Oregon Garden. I didn’t expect to take many photographs as we really just wanted to check out the beautiful gardens and landscaped pathways before it got too hot but I decided to take my Hasselblad along with me anyway and a few rolls of film. I’ve done a lot of photographs with this particular friend in the past and I knew she would be happy to pose for some images if we came across anything particular cool.
It’s a little tough to see on a computer monitor or a phone screen, but the flower plant that is at the center of this image is covered in caterpillars! There are probably at least twenty of them crawling along the stems and flower tops of the plant. We thought it was such a cool sight that we just had to take a picture. I love the way the image turned out and I plan on making an extra large print in the near future so one can see the details of all the little hairy caterpillars walking up and down the plant stock.Read More
Several months back I went to the Oregon Dunes for a photoshoot and I’m not going to deny I’ve been dreaming of going back ever since. Usually it is the forests and the oceans that I tend to crave for the purposes of photography and I never thought I would find a desert to be so mystical and alluring.Read More
