Win a Print!

As I mentioned earlier on here, I will be giving away 1 print from my multi-colored Holga series (featured in Visual Alternatives at College of the Siskiyous). 

The Prints: Inspired by my rainbow colored Holga 135BC, I printed monochromatic color prints from black and white film in an array of colors.  There is only 1 of each print, mounted on 11x14 archival mount board.

To Enter: Leave a Comment below saying which print is your favorite.  I will pick a winner from all the comments on July 5th!

Camera Review–Star Action Camera

This little eBay find takes 2 half frame photos with one press of the shutter.  The two photos are taken sequentially, capturing action diptychs.
Be sure to grab some moving subjects, then point and shoot.

Recesky 35mm DIY Camera

Photojojo recently added a new camera kit to it’s store.  A Recesky 35mm TLR camera that you build from scratch!  Not only do you learn the workings of a camera and get a cool project to work on, but it takes amazing photos as well.

My particular camera has an interesting focus vignette, with the focus getting blurrier towards the edges.
Get one.  Now.

Camera Review–Aquapix

I snagged this nifty little camera on eBay.  It comes with a waterproof case in a multitude of fancy colors.


The Hello Kitty swimming sticker is my own addition.


I shot slide film and cross processed it.  The photos are wonderfully blurry and out of focus.  Just what you want from an entirely plastic camera.  Next: I will use this film underwater as intended.
