Portra Practice

I wanted to see how Kodak’s Portra film looked because, well, why not?  Turns out it looks pretty good.  Not Ektar good, but pretty good.  I’m trying to decide what film to load up on for my trip in May and it seems that Ektar may be the way to go, although the de-saturated look I got on some of these are not bad.













Family and Things that Aren’t Family

Here are some selections from my most recent roll of 400 ISO Fuji Color Film.  They are here for you now to see.  So see.











Update (with pictures!)

Wrapped production on my new short film Independence Daze last week and have been spending some quality time in the editing lab trying to piece it all together.  Already cut it down from 17 minutes to roughly 14, and it’s looking better than ever.  I’m very excited to see how the finished product turns out, and to share it with everyone.  I was also able to finally take some new pictures which was nice and very overdue.  Tried out the 400 ISO Fuji Color film with my new Canon for the first time, and although I would take Ektar film over it any day, some of the shots turned out very nicely.











Cats and Blurry Jesus

Been too busy editing and planning my next short film to take pictures lately, but here’s a few random shots from the past couple of months.  All taken with Kodak’s 100 ISO Ektar film using a Canon AE-1/50mm.
















One Last Roll?

At this point my blog updates seem to have taken a theme of lost roll discoveries.  I’ve basically adapted a gimmick on accident that I never intended for, but this one came out of nowhere.  As in, I had no idea this roll even existed.  These were shot with the old Canon FtB, on Fuji 400 ISO color film.  I still like the fuji film look, but I can’t help but wish I had shot some of these with Kodak’s Ektar film.  Oh well, enjoy these brief selections from my trip to Milwaukee and Louisville.







Another Round of Oldies

Here’s the last of my b/w rolls from the beginning of the year.  I’ll mostly be sticking to color from now on, because that’s just what I want to do, you know?  All shot with Kodak’s 100 ISO B/W film, on my Canon AE-1 with a 50mm lens.  Some selections from an abandoned house, snowpocalypse, and a friend’s indie go go film shoot.
