As I’ve been writing my science fiction short story, I’ve been searching bandcamp for some good futuristic music using the following keywords: “synthwave, retrowave, synthpop, etc.” and finding some great, relatively unknown music!
Hey readers, thanks for continuing to support my blog with your visits! I’ve posted some music I thought you’d like to check out while you check out my post. Hope you dig it!
I tested my new used Nikon F3HP 35mm film camera and it blew me away!
My girlfriend’s cats kindly allowed me to photograph them so I could test the camera. Thank you Mochi and Banana!
My awesome girlfriend took me to BookCon today as an early birthday present! At the end of the day, we were able to get into the panel that I was most looking forward to: a discussion with Brandon Stanton of Humans of New York moderated by WNYC’s Manoush Zomorodi.
Amazingly, I was able to get Brandon’s advice about a fundamental street photography issue that’s been bothering me for years!
There’s been a lot of exciting stuff going on for me this past week!
I’m super excited to say that I just received some great film from Kodak for my next photo shoot!
I’ll also be shooting two 35mm test rolls with my new used Nikon F3HP and I will also be testing a new used Polaroid Colorpack II instant camera this weekend! And I’ve also been researching… Zines (more on that later).

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. That way, I can use the F3HP body with my old school Nikon AI and AIS lenses!
I just watched this video from the excellent Youtube Channel The Art of Photography posted by Photographer Stephen Thorley on the Google + Film and Analogue Photography Community. If you have the chance, check the group out. I just joined up and it has nice, active users. Also check out the videos on The Art of Photography Youtube Channel when you can.
I’m taking a look around to see what sorts of film are out these days for 35mm and there are surpringly few!
