Travelogue: New York Shadow Puppets

New York City has some of the most unique light I have ever experienced in my travels. At times it feels like it’s been arranged perfectly for us Street & Social Documentary photographers. Combined with the density of the city and it’s endless supply of people. It’s hard not to stumble upon something interesting to photograph. Have a listen and feel free to comment. TW

Travelogue: Dublin

Week one in Dublin is complete. Another week to go and I’ll be heading back home for a bit. Lots of back and forth traveling in store for me this year.

Update: Kodak 5222

I’m struggling. I’ve been shooting Kodak 5222 almost non-stop since I got it. And I honestly love it. It’s producing striking black and white images with great contrast. I honestly no longer feel the need to throw a red filter on my lens. BUT… I’m having a hard time with processing the film. I’ve shot it at 200 ASA and 400ASA. I’ve processed it according to multiple sources at the recommended times… and… I’m over-exposed. I started lowering the development

Rant: Don’t let others influence your lens purchases

I’ve been seeing to many articles published recently that are suggesting what lenses individuals should purchase. It’s more than likely click bate. Maybe it’s to get Amazon or B&H affiliate links. But don’t fall for the trap. Those of us shooting for a while now have gone through this bullshit. ‘Wow there’s this new ‘enter brand name here’ lens. It’s so much better and sharper than the lens from two years ago’. Of course we fall for it. And end

Rant: There is no such thing as a perfect lens for Street Photography

I don’t know if it’s a trend to write about “the best lens…” right now, but for some reason my RSS feed is filled with them. There’s no such thing as the best lens for street photography, or any photography for that matter. There “IS” such a thing as the best lens for “YOU“. And only YOU can figure out what focal length speaks to the type of work you’re trying to create. A lot of street photographers will say

Kodak 5222 B&W Cinema Film

Recently I picked up some spools of Cinema film and Kodak 5222 was one of them. I’ve been eyeballing this film for a while but all my “sources” didn’t seem to stock it. I finally managed to luck out when I purchased some film from Reel Good Film in California. Thanks Guys!! I have to say I’m quite impressed. It’s exactly what I hoped for. It’s essentially Tri-X 400, but with it’s own unique contrast and highlight ratio. This leaves

Another Purge

A while ago I wrote about purging some social media accounts. Titled “Goodbye Tumblr”. I got rid of, obviously Tumblr, Facebook, Eyeem and at the time I was debating getting rid of Ello. Remember that social network? It’s been a bit of a weird year, since I thought at one point that going back to Flickr and Eyeem might be a good idea. But honestly, it’s just making me worry about posting on it. I keep forgetting. Then I have
