Los Angeles

Since last year I feel like I’ve been neglecting using my Rollei the most out of my cameras, despite how much I usually love how the photos turn out. I think it is mainly due to its size and weight and if I’m going to carry that amount of weight I usually prefer to take my 4×5 out. Though since I can’t really do spur of the moment photos with the 4×5 I’ve been trying to take the Rollei out a bit more this year. These are just some of the black and white shots I took while walking around during the 10th Anniversary of Night on Broadway and some from just walking around downtown.

More photos will be up on the blog in the near future. Cam and I shot quite a bit while he was here in Los Angeles with me and I also finished up editing a few sets of photos I hadn’t finished up before. I should also add some more recent photos to the portfolio selections since I haven’t really changed those in a while. If you have some favorite photos that I’ve posted on Instagram or Tumblr over the past year or so that aren’t on the site, please let me know and I should get them added to the portfolio. I’m trying to keep those sections to a “best of” set of photos that are based on feedback or what I feel are some of my favorite shots.


I’ve finally been shooting and developing more of the cinema film my brother has been rolling down to 35mm canisters. I really love the colors of Kodak 500T and even though the development process is challenging thanks to the remjet backing it keeps pulling me back. Hopefully I can improve the consistency so I lose less shots. I think I’ll also be posting more sets in my blog space, though I’ve said that before so we’ll see.
