6.25.11, Governor's Island

I've been working on a series of retro photos; I use a camera manufactured in the 40's and 50's, re-rolling 120 film onto the 620 reels that the Sabre 620 requires. My goal is to create a series of photographs that, at first glance, seem to be from the 50's or thereabouts. I took the camera with me to Governor's Island this past summer for the Jazz Era Lawn Party - and while these shots won't make it into the series (wrong era shot with the wrong camera) they are kind of fun. All scratches and light leaks added at random by the camera.

What I Did This Summer

Wow, I haven't written a blog post since July. Pathetic! It's been a crazy summer, and I've been shooting the whole time. Here's the run-down of what I've been up to:

I went to Alaska do drive and shoot a Chevy Volt with an Olympus EP-3 camera.

I hung out with my uncle and shot some dirt track - then went to a classics show with him. Those shots in a future blog post, because right after that...

I went to the Detroit area for the Woodward Dream Cruise.

When I got back, I went to Citi Field for the 2012 Toyota Camry launch. And an earthquake.

Full speed ahead, I tried my hand at shooting a little tennis at the US Open and tried out another new Olympus PEN camera while doing it.

Aaaaand this past weekend I took lots of pictures at a rare local cruise-in - at Serino's block party. A few shots are up on my Facebook page, and I need to do a blog post on that as well.

All in time though, because I'm currently procrastinating. I need to pack for yet another adventure...
