The Color Room.

As I scan through more and more of my old negatives from my darkroom days, I keep finding more pieces that wereĀ under appreciatedĀ at the time. When I was starting my color classes, my first project involved focusing on just one color. I chose . . . brown. Very exciting, I know.

I shot one roll (remember those?!) in the lounge of my friend Adria’s dorm. Adria was essentially one of my muses and still a great source of inspiration. I tried to call-out the brown in every shot by using bright colors and alternate lighting sources.

(Also, pretty sad that my scanner I just purchased about a month ago is already showing signs of wear from over-use. WHOOPS.)

My ten favorite images I shot this year . . . no words needed.

Looks like it was the year of sky blue and sparkly lights.

Back to the Basics . . . then Back Some More

I’ve been drawn to low-fi lenses for my DSLR lately. I took the above picture using a Diana F+ 110 mm telephoto lens. I also have a Diana F+ wide-angle + macro. These lenses are intended for 120mm Diana camera, but with a simple adapter they can work on my DSLR. Of course, as they do not contain any sensors this means they can be only be used on the manual setting. I welcome this challenge to get back to the basics!

Check out more images created using these lenses below. As usual, all images are straight out of the camera.
