Isolette

This is my newest film camera- a 1950’s Agfa Isolette folder.  I’m looking forward to using this.

I Bought a Holga

February 14, 2009

After seeing the work some of my friends have done, I finally broke down and bought myself a Holga. I’m looking forward to seeing what I can create with it.  I’ve had my Polaroids for a few years now and with the film supplies starting to dry up, I’m looking at shifting to another format for my film explorations.  I’ve been really busy with a couple of projects and haven’t been able to post much.  I’ve got a lot of new work that I’ve got to sort through and I’ll be sure to post some here.

So Long JPG

January 3, 2009

There goes another one.  Found an email in my inbox from the editor of JPG Magazine, saying that they’re shutting down operations as of Monday January 5th.  Even more good news for aspiring photographers trying to get their work seen.  I wasn’t lucky enough to be published in an issue, but I’ve had a fair amount of interest in my work through their website.  So it was a positive experience for me and I hope something comes through that will let them continue.

How I Spent My Summer

December 11, 2008

I recently wrote a story about my summer macro experience for the JPG Magazine website.  It’s basically a review of the Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro lens and the world of close up photography it opened up for me.  I had a lot of fun putting the exhibition together and still find new subjects to explore.

Photo Plus 2008

October 26, 2008

Photo Plus Expo was well worth the six hours on the train to get there and back.  When I got to the Javits Center around 11:00, I didn’t know where to start.  I saw Vincent La Foret presenting his film “Reverie,” shot with the new Canon 5D Mark II.  I then went straight to the Canon display and actually held one in my hand for a moment.  The show seemed bigger than last years and I didn’t get to see everything I wanted.  I did make it to the Epson booth and get a signed print from Timothy Greenfield-Sanders.  Hopefully I can budget enough to stay longer next year.

Back From PhotoPlus Expo

Wow, what a day.  I’m exhausted, but it was a blast!  I’ll have some pictures and more up this weekend.

Countdown to Photo Plus

October 11, 2008

PDN’s PhotoPlus Expo starts in a couple of weeks. It gives us aspiring professionals the chance to check out new equipment, like the Canon 5D MarkII, talk with factory reps, and take seminars with established pros.  It’s a three day event, from October 23rd to 25th.  I’m planning to go for one day, although some of my friends are making a week of it.  This is the second year I’ve been able to go and I’m looking forward to it!

It’s Here!

September 24, 2008

The new Canon 5D Mark II is finally official!  Sorry if I’m geeking out over this one, but 21 Megapixel full frame resolution and HD video are too much not to get excited about!  Check out this for a hands-on description of this amazing beast.  And watch the video here.
