Madison, Wisconsin Capitol – Fall 2006

Blog, Photography

I don’t have the usual gallery to share today. However, I do have 20 exposures from a roll of 24 all stitched into a single image. I used my Kodak Retina Reflex S camera with a 135mm telephoto lens, all of which was mounted on a tripod. This was the first roll I shot once […]

High School – Roll 13

Blog, Photography

This is the last of my rolls from my film photography class in high school. Following this class, I had a semester of digital photography which I didn’t enjoy. That class had too much emphasis on Photoshop edits and those aren’t really my thing. These photos, however, are not the last of the photos I […]

High School – Roll 12

Blog, Photography

This “roll” further convinces me that I had no proper management or organization strategy of my negatives in high school. I’m sure I could go back through my negatives and rearrange them with some degree of accuracy bat at this point, having posted nearly all of the “rolls” from high school, I’m not sure it […]

High School – Roll 11

Blog, Photography

With these rolls of film from twenty-ish years ago, I try to remember what the assignment was to help understand what and why I captured what I did. Honestly, I think this roll might just have been for fun. I see a trip to Chicago, a snowy sledding day, and some shots from around town. […]

High School – Roll 10

Blog, Photography

This roll of film appears to be a potpourri of class assignments and a handful of these photos look great to me today. This is another roll where I decided that the photos I don’t remember from the bunch are much better than the ones I do remember. Some of the assignments include: reflections, depth […]

Solar Eclipse 2024

Blog, Photography

At the beginning of this year, I didn’t know that photographing the eclipse on film was something that I wanted to do. Heck, I don’t think it even registered for me that there would be an eclipse. Then, I saw some videos where people were hyping it up and why and suddenly I was hyped […]

High School – Roll 9

Blog, Photography

Whositwhatsit? I’m pretty sure that the was the name of this assignment. Find an object and shoot it from different angles and then other people had to guess what it was. I think mine was guessing in about 5 seconds or less. (It’s a bike rack!) I genuinely hated this assignment. I remember having so […]

High School – Roll 8

Blog, Photography

There was no assignment for this roll, and to be honest I don’t really know why I took it. Likely, some younger form of me was trying to make the camera part of his personality and was bringing it along wherever he went. Who knows? The photos themselves are blurry but an aggressive kind of […]

High School – Roll 7

Blog, Photography

These photos are all bad. Really, I had to pull up the negatives to make sure I didn’t make a mistake while scanning these and sure enough, they are all bad. It looks like I had some weird light leak or development issue because every single photo has some sort of rippling along the strip. […]

High School – Roll 6

Blog, Photography

Another roll, another group of photos that I am not thrilled with 18 years after I took them. What I am finding out is that I wasn’t great about keeping my negatives in order in high school. I wish I could jump back in time to give a brief PowerPoint presentation to my younger self […]
