Boogs and I had a delicious dinner at Fresco. The food was beyond delicious and I couldn’t believe how fresh the seafood was. We ordered lump crab meat and a lobster bisque for an appetizer. My entrée was surf and turf and I had to take some photos of this magnificent meal. It’s a shame I could only enjoy this meal once. It’d be great if you could DVR dinners like this and enjoy them a second or third time. (Don’t forget that you can now “pin” things you see on this site.)
Tonight I completed work on the book trailer for “A Sweater for Duncan”. My lovely wife Lindsay assisted me with a wonderful voiceover. The trailer has a very Levar Burton/”Reading Rainbow” feel to it. Completely intentional. Loved that show growing up!
I’ve been having a lot of fun developing rolls of black & white medium format film taken with the Holga camera. The process for developing film keeps me focused on creating compositions instead of having the ability to fire off 1,000 shots on digital. (Not that I do that!) When I started taking photographs, digital was still in its infancy. Long before Adobe Lightroom, there was just a darkroom. The particular negatives below were developed this morning. I use a changing bag and a light tight developing tank. In less than 30 minutes…voila! Negatives!
There comes a time when some photographers realizes “I like this as a hobby, but I don’t think I’m cutting it professionally.” After staring at my pile of equipment for the past week, I’ve decided to put it all up for sale. I have an XTi and 7D body along with numerous lenses in pristine condition. They are priced quite reasonably and are meant to sell quickly.
First up, my first DSLR. The XTi. I’m only asking $200.00 for that one. Has less than 50,000 clicks. Decent shape. Just a few scuff marks.
::record scratch:: I feel bad for you if you thought I was selling all of my camera equipment.
(Eh, maybe not.)
April Fools! See you next April 1!
