A couple of my stock photos showed up on the Colbert Report recently. A great and funny use of the pics.
I spent a bit of time this afternoon walking around Tokyo’s famous Ueno Park with my 60′s era Polaroid 250. Knowing that I only had 10 photos in the camera was a bit limiting, but all-in-all it was a great experience. And a bonus in addition to the retro photography experience, was the look on bystanders’ faces seeing this old camera being put to use by this big American.
I recently put my mother’s 1970′s era Polaroid 420 back into service. I remember this camera as a child recording our family activities in all their 70′s goodness.
After a bit of cleaning and a slight battery modification (to accept modern 3V power), I’m pleased to report that it happily feeds FUJI FP-100C and FP-3000B (near) flawlessly. I think I might just add a little “Instant Print” magic to my upcoming Japan trip.
I am pleased to announce that I am leading a workshop at this year’s DigitalFest at Pictureline in Salt Lake City. My session, on September 28th, is titled Becoming YOU as a photographer. In the workshop I will share the story of my journey from a high school student with a camera, to a studio photographer in the 80′s, to the photographer I am today discussing the my photographic style that developed along the way. There is a $14.95 fee for the class, but everyone get’s back $20 in DigiDollars to spend at Pictureline – so that means you’ll make nearly 5 bucks just for showing up. I’m excited to meet and share with those that attend!
