Geared Up

ISO100 50mm f/5.6 1/100sec

Im super excited about how these turned out. Im normally apposed to shooting other artist work, unless I can just capture a small element in a unique way making it my own. Which I feel is what I was able to do here. I love the complete graphic nature of these scenes, with the beautiful gear and the harsh structured shadows. Truly a fantastic blend of subject and light. I have a feeling these will be on my office wall soon 🙂

Mystery of the Sandals

ISO800 50mm f/6.3 1/60sec

Its been a while since I’ve posted a black and white street shot, as most of my attention lately has been on certain color palettes. Well I finally came across a shot where I thought a black and white would do it most justice and here it is.

I had originally intended to post some film shots I had taken within the last week, however for whatever reason they didn’t copy to my computer properly and I sent the cd with the originals on it off with my friend who I have been letting use my old AE-1 in our recent shots. So until the return of the cd and pics… Read more…

Flatware part 2

ISO100 50mm f/11 1/40sec

For todays photo journey, I decided to be a bit adventurous and explore uncharted territories, which really means driving around aimlessly looking for a scene to invoke some sort of excitement within. Its a bit of a gamble when racing the sunlight looking for a new scene in an area you are completely unfamiliar with. Read more…

AE-1 Adventures

ASA200 50mm f/5.6 1/125sec


Thankfully I was conveniently over prepared when I went out to shoot yesterday! A couple friends had to bail out on shooting at the last minute which came in handy when I got out to downtown and realized I forgot my SD card for shooting digital, and because I switched bags to bring both of my film cameras I had forgotten to bring my back up card as well. So I was left shooting entirely with the AE-1 for the day, which was a fun yet slightly nerve-racking experience. I’ve been known in the past to mess up a roll or two when it comes to shooting 35mm, and its still very much a learning and experimental stage for me. However at the end of the day the pictures did develop and I had captured a few fun scenes along the way.

This first scene caught my eye just a minute or two into the days shooting. I love the ironic twist to the backwards tourism, with her Big City New York hoody on while being lost in the extremely contrasting small city of Grand Rapids.

Red Rider

ISO1600 90mm f/5.6 1/50sec

Now that spring has arrived and the city is coming to life, its probably safe to say I may be posting more mini series of street shots in the upcoming months. This post is a mixture of a new shot above, and a few street shots from yesterday that didn’t really fit into the story the rest were telling. So I now present the missing pics from yesterdays wonderings. Read more…
