a few weeks ago i visited the cannon beach, along the oreogon coast. i’d done a post of lovely images captured with the fuji 100s, but while i was there i also shot a couple of rolls of film.
using a zero image 2000 with two kinds of film, fuji acros neopan 100 black and white and fuji velvia 100 slide film. remember those? i was both scared and intrigued at what the velvia film would return as the colours are highly saturated and slide film isn’t very forgiving. when working with a pinhole camera, you have to be accurate with your exposures, especially with slide film. black and white film is much more forgiving, so you can flub it a bit and still manage a usable image…
below is a sampling of my fave images from both rolls, i’m really pleased with the results.
It’s 3:00 PM on a Friday afternoon and I’m heading south on the I-5. Leaving the city of Seattle in my rear view, with the wonders of the Oregon coast ahead.
Long overdue I planned a tiny getaway with a good friend, an opportunity to get out of dodge and explore the coast a bit. Since moving to Seattle, I’ve actually done a few trips along highway 101, which loops you along the coast, at least most of the time. It’s rocky, dramatic and simply stated: Beautiful.
Around 9pm, we were crossing the Astoria-Megler Bridge, which is 4.1 miles long, we saw a beautiful sunset unfold. So we paused, at a marina there, to enjoy the sites and of course take some pictures.
We continued on to Seaside, a town about 7 miles from Cannon Beach, to stay the night. Saturday morning came pretty quickly, as I set my alarm for 4 am, with a goal to capture sunrise on the beach. We set out to Cannon Beach by 4:45 am and found the right spot to park and start exploring by 5:15. Surprisingly we were not along. There were several people there, enjoying the sunrise and even digging for clams.
These are a few of my favourite images, these were all taken with a Fuji X100s. I have some iPhone photos as well I shot about 2 rolls of film through my Zero Image Pinhole Camera. Those still need to go to the lab, so look for a follow up post with those soon (if they turn out!). These images were all edited with either Lightroom4 or Lightroom4 + Nik Silver Efex 2.0.

Last week I went to Las Vegas to attend WPPI. This was my first time going to WPPI, it’s a rather large convention for Wedding and Portrait Photographers, from around the world. While the week was filled with seeing friends, … Continue reading

As I mentioned at the end of my most recent post, I wanted to share a handful of my favourite iPhone images from my recent journey to New York. Even though I had a Fuji x-pro 1 with me, everywhere … Continue reading
Two weeks ago I boarded a plane east. A red eye, means hopefully a nap or three as you fly cross country, with the hopes of a safe landing and a productive fun-filled first day. And that for the most part is how it played out. My flight landed just before sunrise on Sunday morning, and before I knew it I was headed to Brooklyn. A couple of hours later the gal I was staying with and I headed towards the subway for a bit of a walk and an adventure. We ventured across the Brooklyn Bridge and through various parts of New York, above and under ground. I was there for a bit of work and as a result of this didn’t get out and about as much as I might have liked, but below are a variety of images captured along the way.
It’s obviously taken a bit of time for me to create this post, some of these areas may well look different today, as a result of hurricane Sandy, which hit the New York area just a day after I left. If you can, please donate to the Red Cross or similar foundations to help provide relief for the families and individuals affected by events this past week.
Below and along the Brooklyn Bridge:
Subways, City Streets, and the Converse store.
And Central Park:
All of these images were snapped with a Fuji X-Pro1 and edited in Lightroom 4 (and Nik Silver Efex Pro 2).
Look for a follow up post with a smattering of iPhone images too.
