^^^Damn! Sick shot. What lens? A 16mm or so? You usually don't see a lot of ultra wide lens shots with skateboard photos. Usually it's long or fisheye.

Thanks a lot ! It's an outreach center for refugees, quite similar to a school in fact.

Thanks! I shot them using a Yashica Mat 124G. The first one was shot on Kodak Ektar and the second two are both Kodak Portra 160.

Serious gear. Whats the story with the dude from the first one? I get a small town hopeless feeling from the photo, it bums me out a little but in a good way.

I try and go out and shoot in the fog whenever I can, especially since we don't get daytime fog around these parts that often. This was in an area between Baltimore and the suburbs, where there's a lot of old businesses still kicking. I drove by this old burger joint, with the "Hamburgers" sign lit up, and thought it looked cool with the Christmas trees for sale in front. I took a few shots and started heading back to my car and heard someone calling for me. Turned around and it was that dude asking me why I was taking pictures of the trees. He wasn't angry or anything, just curious. I told him the fog, the sign, and the trees just came together real nice for a good photo and he understood. I asked him if I could get a quick shot of him and he was cool with it. I forget his name, but he told me he came up from Tennessee to sell trees. Not much of a talker.

Definitely one of my favorite portraits I've taken and I'd love to do more foggy portraits to go along with my landscapes in my Fogged Up series.

Yes that's a very nice portrait !  It's even better that you took it with ektar, the supposedly  not-for-portraits-of-white-people film. Portra might be better for portraits overall but I always found it stupid to be rigid about such things.

Thank you!

Haha I think I like that name a bit more than Ektar. They should slap that on the box! But I've heard from a lot of people they don't like using Ektar for daytime shooting. It's been my go-to film for about 3 years now, for both day and night work, and I've been happy with it for the most part. I have been really slow to jump on the Portra bandwagon, but I really enjoy it a lot as well.

Just upgraded my body and got a new lens and tested it out at some waterfalls yesterday. Super stoked on the difference in quality I can see.

Just started doing my own scans. Really excited about how they're turning out.

great shots! what scanner are you using and how much did you pay?

ive been wanting to get one, but i havent been able to afford anything like that in a while. probably wont even be able to afford to get any film developed for a few months either, but ive learned to be patient with this kind of stuff.

Yeah, I kind of put myself in a hole getting a bunch of stuff developed last week. That's the price of a good time.

The scanner doesn't actually belong to me. A friend was good enough to let me work using his, and it's a nice one. Epson v700. Looks like the cheapest you could hope to find one would be around $600, and as high as $800+. Feeling really lucky that I could put some of my junk in a machine like that.

I really like those, DMH!

Certain scanners are getting harder to come by since they're not really making that many anymore. Prices are going up. If you want one, you should snag them before the prices get too ridiculous. I have a V500 that's still kickin, but I'm even thinking of getting backup just in case.

Some recent stuff:

Oh, damn! That V370 is tempting as hell. Has anyone in here used one before? I was looking through the reviews on that site, but I didn't get the vibe that people on there were too concerned with scanning film negatives.

And, as always, killer stuff, Cadillac. How's the photojournalism gig going?

Thanks dude. It's been going alright, but kinda slow so far since the holidays. I'm gonna start working on a few longer-ish term project for them soon, hopefully.

A friend of mine is the director of a nonprofit that helps people with disabilities create and sell their own artwork so I was thinking of doing a project on the some of the artists and staff.

There's also been a lot of talk about bicycle safety in Baltimore since a bishop, who was three times the legal limit, stuck and killed a bicyclist. I have a few friends who have been running a workshop for inner city kids to learn how to make, fix, and maintain bikes so I was thinking of doing stuff with that.

Funny you might do the bike thing, I'm currently working with a few homeless and "housing-first" centers in Rochester and I'm going to go to a community bike shop Wednesday where some of them live/work.

As far as scanners are concerned I know Epson released two new high-end models for Photokina but you have to be willing to spend $800+

I think it's awesome that bike shops are helping people get on their feet, allowing them some stability by working on bicycles. I have a lot of respect for what these guys in Baltimore are doing because they're seeing first-hand how teaching a kid a skill and giving them responsibilities can provide them so much. I shot some photos of them this past summer at one of their after-school workshops and just talking to the kids and seeing their excitement proves that it's making a difference.

Here's some of those photos:

Anyone remember this shot of mine:


The rider entered the photo in an Instagram photo contest and got picked for the top three places. Then there was the usual begging for likes and he won by a landslide.

The prize was a sculpture of the picture by Ali Jusovic "The World's Weirdest Skateboarder" - looks like he decided to make sculptures for all three:
