On August 21st, 2017, North America went crazy trying to watch a total solar eclipse. I admit I got caught up in it too.
My fellow photographer friend, John, and I got this brilliant idea we’d head up to Wyoming to try and watch it ourselves. John wanted to take photos, but I was more interested in seeing it happen. Naturally we decided this only a few months before the eclipse so finding lodging was a nightmare! Eventually we found a place near the Montana border and set about making our plans.
After loving the results I got out of the Leica, I decided to shoot some Portra in my Rollei last week at the Orange County Fair. I only managed one roll in the heat, but I got some keepers!
Full disclosure, I’m colorblind! Consequently, I never really shoot color film. I used to in the past, for landscapes, but that was about the only time. I’ve never been able to color correct my own images so I stuck to black and white.
Picked up a cool soft release at www.themoregooder.com made out of recycled wood and skateboards! Works awesome and looks snazzy!
