    Reny - 5.18.18

    Today's technology has made it possible for anyone to pick up a camera (or even an iPhone) and proudly proclaim themselves a photographer! But this isn't necessarily an evil thing, it has allowed some to express themselves whom otherwise wouldn't have been able to 20 years ago. I consider myself an artist first and photographer 2nd, although depending on who you ask, those two terms are one in the same.

    This blog represents my never ending exploration and learning into my self expression using the camera as my tool. Although I do a great deal of commercial work these days, my focus is almost always finding ways to express myself artistically by communicating with my viewers with each new image I create.

- Holga toy camera fun…

So a couple months ago I finally joined the toy camera craze and acquired me a Holga. Holga’s are basically a very inexpensive way to shoot some medium format 120 film. If you Google it, you’ll find whole websites devoted to them as well as tips and tricks on modifications one can do to make the images even more unique.

I bought about 5 rollls and finished the last 2 during that BTS shooting I did for Mo’s Cheap Motel shoot. Here’s a few of my fav’s.

Mo's Lincoln just fits the images perfectly

Unlike digital, You only get so many clicks and even then you are not totally sure you got what you wanted…  The next 2 are the only 2 images that came out with the color film.  I used flash for these 2 and the other 10 or so I shot I mistakenly thought it would be bright enough in the room.   I had full on intentions of holding the shutter longer to expose, but I guess I didn’t!  Sucks because I know I had some really sexy shots!

The below are some BTS shots from Mo’s previous Halloween Prom shoot…

On the version Holga I have, there is a red, blue, gold and white filter you can dial in over the flash…thus the color tinting in some of these.

All in all, these toy camera’s are a fun way to get your photography fix.  I’d highly recommend one for yourself or a photog friend!  Very cheap and easily replaceable should you break it! Film pricing isn’t so bad either.  Usually about 5 bucks a roll.  You can get 12-16 shots with the one I have.    So expect to see more after the busy holiday’s pass.  I’d like to get in a few full shoots with it just for fun!

Alas, I’ll part you with a bona fide Self-portrait!



You can check out all the shot’s I got developed on my site here.

Rainy Day Shooting…

I had woke up this morning in hopes of doing some shopping then heading Downtown and playing with the new camera on the city streets. Turns out mother nature had other plans and we had some of the worst rain in our area. So… We decided to shoot some of the wife and baby after they got home.

Had 3 lights here with me at home.

Beauty dish to the front, strip box to the right of subject and bare light subject rear left.

Glavniru - Моя история из жизни: мы как-то с мамой ехали в маршрутке,( мама спец по всем видам мяса на глаз определяет что это), на остановке залазит подвипывший мужик с куском свежака в одноразовом пакете. Едем. Маршрутка резко тормозит,мужик по инерции бежит вперед и пакет рвется ,оттуда выпадет свежак ,дальше мамины слова- ” Мужчина,у вас вымя выпало!” я медленно сползаю под сиденье , пассажиры ржут, мужик красный – выбегает на следующей остановке :) ))

-7D Weather Sealing – And I mean that two ways…

Got this article link emailed from Dick. (Dick from www.bottlenex.com)  When someone say’s the saying  “YOU DON’T KNOW DICK!” alt. “YOU DON’T KNOW JACK”  etc… meaning you don’t know shit.  They weren’t refering to Dick.  LIke myself, or more so…he just 80% of the day he scours the web looking for knowledge. (Ok, probably most of it useless knowledge) The other 20% he catches up on TV shows aired on the web.   Anyways…

Check out this article on Canon’s 7D weather sealing.  Tried and proved in the field.

Taken from -
