Decided one night to drive through the night in my 1986 VW Vanagon to spend a weekend in Malibu. Our time there consisted of sandy reef cut feet, sunburnt noses, and long mid day naps in edna (My VW). Here is the goodies shot on color from that time. I should have my black and white roll from this trip back any time now. Stay Tuned..

1st Roll of Kodak Ektar 100

I took my camera with me around town to get a couple snaps of life in the summer in Northern San Diego. We decided to head up to Oceanside pier to see some interesting people, and busy beaches; but on our way home we stopped in Encinitas as the sun was going down.

This was my first time shooting on Kodak Ektar 100 and I had heard plenty of reviews all over the map with how people feel about this film, but to be honest I found it to be quite nice. It didn't seem to have the exposure latitude that I'm used to with kodak's portra 400 but definitely performed to my exceed expectations. I really like how it manifests darker skin tones, but definitely noticed people who were pale looked more red than desired. I found that Ektar is perfect to shoot in stronger sunlight, and if you're looking to get more saturation at sunset. Anywho... here's the gallery. Enjoy!

My 1st Roll On My Leica M6!

I love black and white film photography but rarely do I ever feel compelled to share any of it to Instagram. Maybe its just me, but I just don't feel like it does the photo any justice to see it in a stand alone setting on an empty platform like Instagram. Rather I feel like it should be placed in a worthy setting that in hopes provokes the thought required to appreciate black and white film photography. Ideally I would want to put it in to a book, and trust me I am working on one, but for now here is my first roll ran through my new Leica M6. 

Stay tuned for more.

My New (old) Leica!

 I recently got my hands on a camera that I have lusted after since I started taking photos. The Leica M6 Classic 0.72x with a Carl Zeiss 35mm f/2.8 C Biogon ZM. Ive been seriously looking at buying this camera for around a year, so to finally get it feels weird. After using the camera a little bit I can say that I really do love the M6. Its quite simple, it really doesn't do anything outstanding (except be sexy and robust), but thats why its so great. The M6 does everything you need exceedingly well, its really everything you need to make great photos, nothing more. Its an all mechanical camera, with the exception of the light meter. Meaning that the M6 will function as a camera even if there is no battery to operate the light meter. 

So I've only run about a few rolls through it in the 2 week span I've had it, and I decided to tape the logos. Partly because I like the way the all black looks, but also partly because I like using the camera for the results, and feeling it gives me rather than the glamorous name it bears. Obviously taping the logos doesn't reaaaallly do anything, but I like it. haha you get the idea, its a crazy fun camera.
