Schulman Photo Lab

I picked up my film from Schulman Photo Lab yesterday, and they did a fantastic job as usual. I can’t recommend them highly enough. Anyway, I have a ton of work ahead of me with scanning and processing. Keep an eye out for some new images in the near future. Also, an acute eye will notice that there is only one color image in this collage. So yes…I shot only one sheet of 8×10 Velvia 50 on my entire trip to the Eastern Sierras, and it came out great. I can’t wait to work on it.

Lee Vining, California

I’m back home from my Eastern Sierra adventure where I spent the majority of my time south of Lee Vining up in the hills. I was fortunate to have a small storm on two separate days where it snowed and created interesting light. Boy was it cold!!!! I ended up shooting mostly black and white film on a variety of cameras, and it’ll be a few weeks before I’m able to show some images. For now, enjoy this collage.

Culver City, California

Behind the scenes of our “Nuptials” series of images. This collage shows our setup photographing the print and frame of my in-law’s wedding photo from 1958 as well as some printing of various images in process. Additionally, there are two images of the final prints used at our reception where you can see how we mounted and displayed them on the tables.
.
The camera used for all photographs was a Speed Graphic with a Kodak Aero Ektar 178mm lens. A custom lens adapter needed to be made in order to mount this lens on the camera, which is actually a common setup started by David Burnett, @davidburnettfoto. David is a very successful photojournalist and someone whose images I admire and respect. Anyway, this setup is sometimes referred to as the David Burnett Combo. Many photographers use this setup and tilt the lens in such a way to create an effect of miniature, as David has so effectively done throughout his career. But the lens also offers extreme shallow depth of field with an absolutely beautiful bokeh, which is why we used the lens for our project.
