I’ve just returned from an adventure on the West Coast — We spent a delightful week in Cannon Beach, and we almost didn’t come back! The Oregon coast is stunningly beautiful, and since we flew in and out of Seattle, we were able to see (and photograph) parts of Washington, too.
I’m planning a Saturday morning photo safari in downtown Frederick (Maryland) on May 21 … No fussy cameras, no pretentious “professional” gear, just a fun point-and-shoot excursion. You can bring your own camera, or you can try one of my 35mm toy cameras. (I’ll bring the film.)
I have lots of random updates to share, and I’m finding that the sheer volume of news has become sort of paralyzing when I try to start a blog post. So, in the interest of moving forward, here’s an abbreviated list of my latest projects, features, exhibits, and shop updates … online and “in the wild.”
I’ve been fortunate to test several incarnations of instant film produced by The Impossible Project, and it never gets old. It’s rare in this day and age to have an opportunity to work with a photography process that’s truly experimental, and I’m hyper-aware of how special it is to be trusted with a task like this.
Jake wrote a beautiful summary of the past year of developments (no pun intended) in Impossible films, so I won’t duplicate it here. The point is that PX680, Impossible’s new 600-compatible film, is here. It’s still in test/development phase, but the first flush will be available soon. And it’s amazing.
