I will not be making any further updates on this blog.





Redesign

23 08 2009

I think I am going to redesign the look of the blog now that the focus has shifted toward photography. The old layout doesn’t really match the new focus. With any luck, I will be able to create a new look that I like today.





August Photo dump

23 08 2009

Well, here is the batch of the best photos I’ve taken this past month. As you can see, I’m still being picky. I should have a lot more to post once the semester starts. Until then, here you go.

Photo-a-Day

18 08 2009

Well, I am going to go ahead and jump on the bandwagon that seems to be going around these days. I am going to attempt to shoot at least one photo on film a day. I say “at least,” because I don’t want to limit myself to jut that one photo. However, I think I need to be more specific in what or how I shoot… but I’m not sure how.

Any suggestions?





Kodak Expired Film Winner

31 07 2009

As some people know, Kodak has a tendency to be very generous at certain times of the year. This time, they posted a contest on Flickr where they would give away 10 rolls of expired film to 400 people. Well, I never win anything, so I was surprised to find that I have won when I checked my inbox today. I should receive my package within the next two weeks or so. I am excited to find out what types of film I won. They had a couple of different kinds, and the winners just get a random grab bag of film.

Now, I am not just posting this to brag, of course. I also wanted to mention that since I got about $40 worth of film for free, I will be posting color photos eventually, which really is not something I normally do, since I normally only shoot b/w film with the exception of Polaroids. The only problem is that color film processing is a pain in the ass, so I send it out to be developed instead of doing it myself.





Re: Letting loose…

27 07 2009

Well, needless to say, I didn’t accomplish my goal. Instead, I accomplished a whole 12 photos on a roll of color negative film. Yes, I am an overachiever. To make up for it, I plan on taking my Kodak Brownie Hawkeye out with me today when I go out to run errands. Hopefully I will be able to develop them this evening so I can upload them tonight once they are dry.

EDIT: None of the photos were really satisfactory, in my opinion… at least not good enough to post online.





Letting Loose at Artscape

12 07 2009

Artscape is an annual art festival held in Baltimore, MD, USA that occurs mid-July. It takes place in the majority of the Bolton Hill section of the city, which happens to be on my college campus. I’ve decided that since several friends will be coming in for the festival, it would be a good excuse to take an exorbitant amount of photos. Normally, I cannot take more than a few photos a day because I just can’t seem to let loose. I’m not sure if this is a good or a bad thing. Therefore, I am going to force myself to take three rolls 36 exp film: one color negative, one slide, and one b/w. Artscape only lasts for three days, so I must take a roll a day. Let the experiment begin!
