Traveling

Normally when I go on vacation I’ll bring two or three cameras at least. For our recent 2000 mile road trip, however, I stuck to my Travelwide 90. The Travelwide was designed to be a large format camera you could easily travel with and shoot hand-held. So in keeping with that design intent, I brought just […]

Ai Weiwei At The Rock

A fascinating collection of art instillations by Ai Weiwei brought us to Alcatraz today. Had a blast photographing the incredible artwork, and the early morning light had me chasing shadows all over the island: Fuji X100s | Velvia/BW + Red Filter Modes

Weird Lens. Replichrome.

T-MAX vs Neopan

Just got two rolls of very different black and white films back from the lab. First up is a roll of T-MAX 100. The film’s low speed allows me to shoot at wider apertures on my M3 during the day, and its fine grain makes for some really clean output. It’s an excellent choice for […]
