Instagram and Image Size

My most recent series of photos were a set of black and white shots I took from my trip to Barcelona. Reviewing and selecting the photos I use my desktop computer which is a nice bright high resolution 27″ monitor. My typical process is to make several passes through the photos giving stars and filtering […]

Twelves #1 – Construction

Construction is the first set in my new Twelves series, producing a cohesive set of twelve photos each month for the year. The San Francisco Bay Area is seeing a great deal of construction from housing to office buildings everywhere around the bay you see lots of growth. Back in 2000, I worked in an […]

Twelves

For 2017, my year long project is to create a series a month, twelve series with twelve photos in each. Each month I’ll focus on a single topic, shoot, and edit it down to just 12 photos. Last year I worked on a 52-rolls project shooting a roll of a film a week for the […]

52 Rolls Project Recap

I’ve completed my 52 rolls project, shooting a roll of a film a week for the whole year. I actually ended up shooting 59 rolls of film, a few were skipped from posting due to poor quality or just outright fail. It was a fun project, I’m glad I did. First some stats: Camera Nikon […]

High Desert

Each Christmas we travel down to the Palmdale/Lancaster area to visit my wife’s family. My wife lived there as a teenager and not really a fan of the desert. I think there is an odd beauty in the emptiness. You can see my photos from last year and 2014, and an airplane park.

Roll 51, 2016

Roll 51 is another roll of Kodak Portra shot on the Contax G2. The astute observer will notice another roll got skipped. Roll #50 was a bit of a mess, it was shot with a test camera that needed serious adjustment, nothing was in focus and maybe only half-exposed properly. Instead here’s a nice consistent […]

Roll 49, 2016

Roll 49 is a roll of Kodak Portra shot on the Contax G2, of all the different films and camera shot throughout the project, this might be my favorite combination. The Contax G2 is a rangefinder camera with autofocus and autoexposure, so operates similar to a full SLR, in a slightly more compact form. Shots […]

White Oaks

White Oaks is a neighborhood in San Carlos, the town I live in California. The neighborhood is named after the great oak trees that are found throughout, which technically are not white oaks but valley oaks, a misnomer by early settlers that stuck. Ruby is an oak tree whose roots are causing problems with the […]

Grand Meetup 2016

A set of photos from Automattic’s Grand Meetup 2016, see my photos from previous years 2015, 2014, and 2013. This year we were in beautiful Whistler, British Columbia, where the 2010 Winter Olympics were held. I’m a little late in posting because this year I didn’t bring a digital camera, I only shot film and […]

Roll 30, 2016

Roll 30 is another roll from my homemade pinhole, shot at the Golden Gate National Cemetery trying to capture flags in the wind. I’ve gone there before with that intent but that time ended up with this movie. Shots taken on: Vivitar Ultra, Pinhole, Kodak Portra 160 Developed and scanned by The FIND Lab
