The Sasquatch Music Festival: Four days of music, mischief, and very little bathing. The weather was decent so I busted out my Nikon F camera and shot a few rolls of film over the course of the weekend. I figured since there were tons of press photogs with high-powered lenses already taking pictures of the bands, that I’d look around for other sights and scenes. Mostly I ended up taking pictures of people, which, in my honest opinion, are always the best part of any music festival (see above). Below are a few of my favorites. Click to embiggen:
Well, that’s it for now. See you at Sasquatch 2012. You bring the tent, I’ll bring the camera.

My ever-increasing infatuation with film cameras has led me to acquire a brand spankin’ new Nikon F Photomic. Ok, so it’s not exactly new – mine was introduced sometime in the mid 60’s – but it’s new to me, and I’m pretty enamored with it. The thing is built like a tank and weighs a ton, but it takes pretty great pictures considering it’s almost a half a century old. They sure don’t make ’em like they used to. Here are a few test shots I took with Kodak 200 film using a Vivitar 28mm wide-angle lens. I hope to have more portrait shots with my next roll. Check em out.

I was looking through some old albums and it just occurred to me: I’ve never posted any of my Holga pictures on this site. I took most of these several months ago while I was still in South Korea with Kodak 400 film and a Colorsplash flash. Check them out and let me know what you think.

I found out yesterday that one of my instructors at Seattle Central recently finished working on a feature length film and is now in the promotion stage. My teacher, Rick Clark, worked as a script consultant for a project entitled Beauty of The Fight, a documentary on life in the barrios of Panama, and the beauty that can thrive beneath a desolate surface. The film is directed by John Urbano, a commercial photographer turned cinematographer, who was inspired by the culture and stories of the Panamanian people he met during his travels. I haven’t seen the film yet, but in the hopes that my teacher might randomly stumble upon this post, I’m gonna go ahead and say it’s awesome! Actually, I checked out the trailer and it like a pretty worthwhile viewing, especially from a cinematography standpoint.
