Saturday Adventures

One thing I’ve learned from my fellow film photography nerds Jim Grey and Alex Luyckx is there’s always something local you can photograph. My wife likes to call them our Saturday Adventures. We’ll often pick a city or place we’ve never been in Utah and spend a Saturday there. The following pictures were taken along […]

Asanuma Lens

“Ninety-nine percent of the lenses are better than 100% of photographers.” – Scott Bourne My friend Lynn Taylor from the Ogden Camera Club gave me this Minolta MD mount lens a few years ago. It’s in great condition, was still in the box with all the packaging materials. Has no scratches, no fungus, and no […]

Olympus Stylus Epic DLX (1997)

My son has become a master at thrifting. When looking for vintage clothing, he knows exactly what to look for. On occasion, he will find a camera and send me a text and ask if it’s worth investigating. Back in May, he came across a stack of Olympus gear at one of his favorite stores. […]

Flynn’s on Film

A few weeks ago I took the day off and spent some time at Flynn’s Retrocade with my Canon EOS 10S and some Agfa Vista 200 color film. It was nice to go somewhere during a cold COVID afternoon that was indoors and open. Thanks to Michelle at Flynn’s for allowing me to use my […]

Lomography Berlin Kino 400

One of the coolest things about the online film community is the generosity of film photographers. Last year I emailed Natalie Smart, a Brighton UK film photographer after reading one of her blog posts. Seeing that she had just purchased a Hasselblad 500 C/M, I had several original Hasselblad brochures, and some other film items […]

Rollei 35 (1966 – 1974)

I was contacted last May by someone looking to donate a camera. A reader named Sarah had acquired her grandfather’s Rollei 35 and wanted to make sure it would go to someone that would use it. After a few back-and-forth emails, Sarah sent the camera from North Dakota. I asked Sarah to tell me a […]

Long Exposure

It’s been a crazy summer for me. With some new job responsibilities, I worked some incredibly long hours at odd times of the day or night. On a Friday back in June, I had spent 12 hours working from home in front of my computer. I felt like I was going to go crazy if […]

Recently Abandoned

This summer, I spent an afternoon at two recently abandoned places with my Nikon F2 and a roll of Kodak Ektar. On the occasion that I shoot color film, I like the saturated colors of Ektar and the way it renders red, orange and green. The house and pool in the images are a piece […]

The 2nd Annual Negative Positives Film Photography Podcast Double-Exposure Challenge

This year I organized another double-exposure challenge for The Negative Positives Film Photography Podcast. Using some of the lessons learned from last year, I decided to simplify the challenge, and give photographers deadlines. The concept of the double-exposure challenge: one photographer shoots a roll of film, rewinds the film, and then sends it to someone […]
