Film Photography

March 19th – Zab and I were walking around looking for where I could shoot my daily photo before getting dinner. Originally I wanted to shoot under the Grand Ave bridge, but there was still too much traffic to position myself in the center of the road. As we were walking out the stairs leading up to The Broad looked really cool, so I setup to try to capture that.


March 20th – Mondays.. I was really tired from work, but after dinner I finally got to show Zab the immense beer selection at Ramirez’s. I suggested she try Orion (probably my favorite Japanese beer) and I finally got to try San Miguel, which was also really good.


March 21st – Raul lent me his plotter to use while he’s on vacation so I could start cutting my own vinyl stickers. Zab doesn’t like when I have taken pictures of her so she’s hiding off to the side out of the frame.


March 22nd – Finished cutting some dual color stickers with help from Zab and some LEDs came in that I wanted to try on the Evo. They unfortunately didn’t work as well as I hoped, so I’ll still have to find a better set.


March 23rd – Cut a lot of stickers for Cam to ship him once I send out a box of a lot of gear to him.


March 24th – I don’t even know what to do anymore, some things I had done in the past Zab found out about when I should have told her and she walked out. Even now I wish I could go back and change things since not a day has gone by that I don’t over analyze things.


March 25th – I just need to get out of the house and drive and shoot. That can sometimes help clear my mind.


March 12th – Testing some extreme shift movements for the 300mm lens. Between shifting the frame and using swings I think I had the front and rear standards racked out more than 10cm apart.


March 13th – Old radiator cooling plate is off since it doesn’t fit with the Evo 7 bumper. Just sanded and was working on polishing it up to get it ready to sell.


March 14th – The 65mm roll of 250D came in. Have to get this shipped off to Cam so he can keep working on a way for cutting it down to fit on 120 rolls.


March 15th – Definitely appreciate getting off of daylight savings so that there’s an increasing amount of sun left still once I get home at the end of the day.


March 16th – Sick day, well recovery from insomnia. Sometimes I have a really difficult time sleeping until 4 or 5 am and then end up being useless all day afterward.


March 17th – Zab came back just in time to celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day. We both love this beer even though it’s not Irish we had this and a few others since it’s difficult to pass up.


March 18th – Roaming around Pasadena with Zab after a drive and some King Taco(have to eat tacos everywhere). The design of their city hall is beautiful, I’ve shot this before on medium format as well, but I’ve wanted to try with the 4×5 and hadn’t before this time.


March 5th – Hiking through the clouds at Griffith Park with some friends. It was only a little rainy on the way up and the clouds broke just enough to shoot this and some slides, but then on the way back down it just poured.


March 6th – The first part of the Evo 7 conversion done. I got a front bumper from another Evo owner who is selling his car and wanted to bring it back to stock. More parts are on the way now to complete the look soon.


March 7th – The old RPF1’s are off the car, changed to a new set of 17×9.5’s with a 38 offset to reduce chances of rubbing that would sometimes happen with the 22 offset. Surprised to see how spanked one of the Hankook R-S3’s was as well after only a couple months of use.


March 8th – Another part toward the Evo 7 conversion, picked up a wing from Khiem at KT Motoring.


March 9th – Photo day for a bunch of parts that are off the car now and need to get sold.


March 10th – Cooking some spicy chili and chipotle flavored beef and rice and having a night of editing.


March 11th – Winding down on Saturday and trying to prepare myself for the daylight savings time change.
