New York City on a Holga

I had originally planned to do three mini projects or a small series of photos using the Holga 120N while in New York City – 1) The Oculus; 2) The Brooklyn Bridge; 3) Subways in NYC. Due to the lack of light within the subway system, most of those shots didn’t really turn out. I…

New York City in Black and White

For this post, I wanted to explore our New York City trip in black and white. Personally, when I think of photography in NYC, black and white images come to mind.

Turning 40

A couple weeks ago I turned 40 years old. It’s kind of a weird feeling turning 40… and only because I vividly remember when my dad turned 40. I remember what we did for that party and who was there and some conversations that were had… and to be honest, it didn’t seem that long…

Cambridge Mill Through a Holga

This is the probably the longest I’ve gone before developing a roll of film. Usually, I like to develop within a couple days/weeks of shooting. I just developed this roll today which I started back at the beginning of September. I totally forgot what was even on the roll… so it was kind of a…

Lang Grist Mill and Hope Mill

Last week, the camera club went to a couple mills just north of Keene, Ontario. Both of these I’ve been to several times and have even brought the large format camera with me. It’s been a while since I’ve had it out, so it was fun to go through the time consuming process of making…
