First off, I want to thank all of you so much for keeping this blog at number #1. I just checked and it’s still the top result for “writer photographer nyc” on Google Search!
Hey all, I hope you’ve had a great week. I’ve been busy shooting 35mm film! This morning, I just finished a roll with my Nikon F3HP. And I’ve also been shooting a test roll with my “new” used Olympus XA2 point and shoot 35mm camera (pictured above). I just shot an entire roll with it and will bring it down to Luster Photo & Digital for development.
The last couple weeks I’ve been obsessed with researching 35mm half-frame cameras. I’m taking a trip in October and I want to bring a 35mm film camera, but don’t want my Nikon F3 getting stolen. For those of you unfamiliar with half-frame cameras, they were big from the the 1960s to the 1980s, when processing film was expensive.

Hey everyone! I hope you all had wonderful weekends. I’m still getting used to using my used FujiFilm x100 camera. I’ve already posted several test photos to my Instagram, but thought I’d share them both here so you can see several examples. I’ll post again with more impressions of the camera once I’ve used it more. For now, I’m experimenting with trying to get a TriX “look” out of the camera. Have a great week!
This week, I’m testing a new old Fujifilm X100 camera I ordered from Unique Photo in NJ. It arrived yesterday and I’m very excited. I have 7 days to test it out. So that’s what I’m up to this week!
I’ll post the results of my tests soon and in the meantime, I hope you all have a great week!
Recently, I had the chance to meet director, sculptor and fine artist Jim Mckenzie in SoHo. We first got in touch on Instagram about a year ago when I saw photos of his bright, colorful, fanciful art with it’s touch of melancholy. When we met in person, I immediately noticed his eyes. They were full of mirth and energy. I’d even say he has, “laughing eyes”.
Sometimes I only get the opportunity to learn about a photographer on the day he or she passes away. It’s a weird experience – discovering an artist’s life work because of their obituary. I’m both elated to learn about an artist I never knew existed, and at the same time, I feel sad I never knew about them when they were walking the Earth.
Thanks to BB Gun Press I was lucky enough to be at the sold out launch of Kristin Kontrol‘s summer tour at Baby’s All Right. Starchild opened the show- a charismatic musician paying homage to Prince. Next, Kristin Kontrol took the stage and the crowd buzzed with excitement. Lead singer Dee Dee (of Dum Dum Girls fame) was dressed in a silver space outfit and held the audience in the palm of her hand for the duration of the show. During breaks in songs, there was even silence as the audience marveled at Dee Dee. This is her first project after the end of the Dum Dum Girls.
