A couple weeks ago I was able to test my brand new FujiFilm Instax 210 Instant Camera so I wanted to share those test photos with you. It was July 4th weekend up in historic Ridgfield, Connecticut and we saw that the local homeowners had dressed up their historic homes for the holiday! My instant photo scans are below (I only scanned them using my Epson Perfection V600 default settings so they were scanned just as they were – no correction):

I’m totally riding the analog 35mm film wave! Since I’m arranging to shoot real 35mm film soon (Kodak film), I decided it was time to get a real, professional 35mm camera! Some of you may remember I ordered a Nikon FE last year to test. I had to return it when I realized I needed something better: the Nikon F3HP. This week, I spent additional hours of research online to make sure it was the best bet (and most affordable option), and finally decided it was time to buy.

Good news! I’ve now successfully installed Photoshop CS6 and Lightroom 5 onto my new Best Buy open-box MacBook Air 13″ (Early 2014). I bought it on Black Friday. And both programs open really fast. I had to get on the horn to Apple to get my free iLife download, but it all worked out nicely. For the record, I’m running OSX 10.9.5. And I’m now awaiting a case I ordered.
I’ve been wracking my brains for several months now, studying travel and subcompact cameras in an effort to find a great way to shoot street photography on the cheap. I’ve found some cool options, for example:
