ipswich river sanctuary shot on impossible project silver shade (black frame). I absolutely love this film!
crane’s beach. ipswich. MA.
this is the end of the crane’s shots. I’ve been saving these, best for last you know? i am over the moon with how these sand shots came out. i knew that i was seeing something very special and fleeting in the ripples and waves that the wind sculpted into the sand of the dunes. I’m pleased the film responded so well to the diminishing light that afternoon. now try and stop me from running right back to the beach this weekend and shooting more! 60+ degrees and sun for both days. yeah, just try.
Stumptown Coffee @ The Ace Hotel. Portland, OR
these and a few more portland shots were hiding away in those black & white rolls i recently got back. I had just about forgot that I brought a spare camera to PDX for black & white shots. I love how these turned out! Greyscale is so fitting of the cool vibe of this stumptown.
two of my lovely friends got married a couple weekends ago. and you can probably tell by the huge grins on their faces (upon seeing one another for the first time that day) just how in love they are. i think i smiled just as big when i saw these photos for the first time. it’s simply, honest love and so very fitting for the latest Word to Shoot By word. You can check out the rest of the Words shots here. And congrats to C + L!
happy valentine’s day!
So I had a growing pile of exposed black and white film accumulating on my desk. And since that’s written in the past tense that means I’ll be posting lots from these rolls in the next few weeks. hooray. the shots above are all from fall and winter forays to rhode island. purgatory chasm, newport, and a christmas tree farm.
My first thought when I got these images back from the lab was, dang why don’t shoot more black and white?! Well I’m probably gonna ignore color for a little while or at least until the first little green sprouts of spring arrive. I’m sure I’ll be filled with spring-feaver and reaching for some Portra in a heartbeat to capture those colors.
Also, I’ve noticed recently a couple of my film photog fav’s have also reached for the black and white this winter. I love you Kodak Tri-X 400! it captures the delicate winter light just so perfectly.
