Band Photos at the Observatory

  More photographs from the Sam Weber band series – these were shot at the Gonzales Observatory. The first image is my favourite of the series.  For more information about the photography, band and their new album check out the first in this series here.

Band Photos Around the House

  More photographs from the Sam Weber band publicity shots that I did in late February. For more information about the photography, band and their new album check out my previous post here. These were shot around the house, one of several settings we tried out.

Band Photos

These photographs are selected from some band publicity shots that I did in late February. I am cleared to show them now that their new album is about to be released. My interest and involvement with the Sam Weber band springs from my son being a member. Mercifully they make very nice music that I…

Expired Film Day

  I am skipping over a backlog of film (27 rolls or so from 2016) waiting to be posted in order to celebrate Expired Film Day, which was yesterday. These shots are from a roll of Ektachrome 100 (EPN 120) that expired in 1991. The film is part of a batch that came with my Mamiya…

Birthday Pairs

    This roll of 120 film dates from early August; I finally got it back, scanned commercially. It was shot with a Mamiya M645 Super and 80/2.8 lens using expired Ilford XP2 exposed at half box speed and the sunny 16 rule. The entire roll was shot at a birthday party. For 52 rolls I have selected the…

Long Exposure and WordPress Reblogging Bug

    A few months ago I received some parts for the Mamiya M645 Super that allow me to take longer exposures. The crucial piece was an adapter for a normal cable release. But I did not find a chance until a few weeks ago to give it a try. My apologies for having the same subject…

Chinese Cemetery

  A few weeks back now I started this roll of film and only recently finished it off so it gets counted as my 24th roll even though some of the shots date back 8 weeks or so. These were taken when Melinda Green Harvey was visiting me from Texas. This link is to a…

Lucky Thirteen

  I am not a superstitious person, so the thirteenth roll is not giving me the tiniest frisson of fear. Indeed, I got married on the thirteenth 30 years ago; that worked out pretty well. This roll has a variety of stuff on it. I have pulled out just the storm drain photos which is my…

Redcedar Clad

  I found a bit of an architectural theme on my twelfth roll of film which I started shooting a couple of months ago, and then finished off late last week. There were some nice surprises, barely remembered, from the first part of the roll. These three images are all taken in the Atrium, and relatively new building…
