Here's Harper!

My friends Diana & Josh just had their little daughter, Harper, and I was lucky enough to take some photos of her yesterday (at the tender age of 17 days old!) Here are some of my favorite pics that I took of her--isn't she precious?!?!?

First of all, here are a few digital photos that I took using my Olympus e-300 DSLR and a beautiful Zuiko 50mm lens.

And of course I had to take some SX-70 Polaroids as well! (The film is expired 600):

I'm so excited to watch Harper grow and discover the world around her--and of course, I've already explained to her parents that I'll be watching with a camera in my hands! :)

Roid Week Fall 2010, Day 5

It's been an amazing Roid Week, and I'd like to thank everyone for sharing their inspiring images! If you'd like to get in on the instant photography action, check out the Impossible Project and their amazing work making new film and restored cameras available to the world!

I had a dream, and the dream became a plan, and the plan became actualized:
You and me, sitting on the beach.
Counting the sets as the waves broke.
Watching the Pacific belie its name.

'Roid Week Fall 2010, Day 1

The time has come: it's 'Roid Week Fall 2010.


The Same Sky is Not Enough
The Same Sky is Not Enough

Horoscope for Capricorn. Oct 30 2010:
Everyone has regrets, Capricorn. Everyone wonders "what if?" at some point in life when things haven't gone as planned. You may now be looking in the rear view mirror trying to figure out what you could have done differently in a situation that has left you unhappy and unsatisfied. But situations don't look the same in a rear view mirror as they did when you were walking straight into them. Keep that in mind as you come to a fork in the road today. You have a choice to make. It's a tough choice, but if you stay on the high road and follow your heart, you'll choose the right direction.

Taking Portraits of People

I don't take a lot of photos of people, but I do enjoy taking photos of special people in my life. (This is distinct from photos of strangers, of which I have a growing collection, too.) This morning I started going through some of my favorite portraits--both posed and candid--and thinking about what makes them special to me. I think the main emotion I try to express in the images of people that I create is a sense of connection. Sometimes the connection is with the photographer; at other times, another person, animal, or an object is the focus of connection. I'm hoping to become a better portraiture photographer in the coming years. Until then, here are some of my favorites:

Bryan, With Reflection (2008)
Camera: Holga CFN
Film: Classic Pan 400

My Mother and Her Doll, II (2007)
Camera: Holga CFN
Film: Classic Pan 400

Daisy & Charlie (2010)
Camera: Olympus e-300 DSLR

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar (2003)
Camera: Olympus APS
Film: Kodak APS 800

Alex on her Rooftop (2009)
Camera: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX150

Ben Gets An Ice Cream From the Ice Cream (Wo)Man (2009)
Camera: Polaroid Sx-70 Alpha 1, Model 2
Film: Polaroid 600 *expired* + ND filter
