at last, a few of my favorite images from desert daze this past october. i shot these with my trusty lil’ holga 120s and kodak portra 160 film. in hindsight, because i am always trying to improve / experiment with techniques, i should have brought a second camera for lower light conditions. i lost a few shots where i didn’t have enough light, but the ones i got are pretty awesome. see more from desert daze and twentynine palms here! ❤

processing / scanning by the lovely folks at The Darkroom.
this spring, i started to process some old, forgotten rolls of film that had been laying around gathering dust. so far, i’ve sent out 9 “mystery rolls” to be processed (thanks to The Darkroom) — all medium format film that i shot with my beloved hasselblad 500cm in 2011/2012 so far.
it’s been…a lot to experience. memories i had hidden away, travels i forgot about completely, etc. it is all part of a bigger idea, a show i want to put together of my photography work over the last 15 years. oh, the secrets that lie ahead in rolls of film i have yet to process! just a couple of weeks ago, i found proof sheets for 4 rolls of film from 2011 that i shot and forgot. needless to say, there will be a lot of those to show in the days and weeks to come. i’ll have prints available soon and hopefully i can get this website finished before the end of the year, too.
here goes nothin!
just a few of the many rolls of film i need to process…
