Tri-x chronicles: Volume III

March 2, 2011 8 comments

Back from the dead like a resurrection it’s the Tri-x chronicles volume III.  If you haven’t been following then you need to back up to the beginning for the full story.  Basically I’m only shooting Tri-x for the year of 2011.  The idea is to unlock its dark secrets and report my findings to anyone who wants to know.  If you need to go back in time and catch up do that.  Right now the saga continues.

Tri-x chronicles: Volume II

February 2, 2011 3 comments

It’s been a solid month now of using only Kodak Tri-x film and so far i still think it sucks.  Last time I told you I would be using my M6 and a fifty Summarit but that didn’t happen.  It’s just to cold around these parts to not have your hands  protected by at least to pairs of gloves.  By now i know your hanging on the edge of your seat waiting to find out what I did so here ya go.

Deal alert!

January 28, 2011 2 comments

What photo blog would be complete without the occasional deal alert.  Trolling the internet today I discovered a nice deal on a great lens.  Adorama still has stock of the Nikon 85mm f1.4 D and they’re only asking $1174.95.  If you were thinking about buying that 70-200 skip it.  This baby’s cheaper, smaller and best of all sharper. For the budget minded don’t forget to check out the Pro Optic fish-eye lenses cuz we know everyone loves a fish-eye.  It’s like the zoom of prime lenses.  Adorama has been in the business a while so don’t be surprised by their great service and low prices.

Tri-x chronicles: Volume I

So here we go.  The first chapter in the Tri-x chronicles.  I’ve vowed to shoot only Tri-x for the entire year of 2011 and share my adventures here.  If you need background read the previous post.   Currently I’m mired in winter under about four feet of snow but I went out anyway and made some shitty pictures.  See what I got after the link.

Tri-x are for kids

January 12, 2011 3 comments

As the new year approached I was wracking my brain trying to figure out how I could better myself in 2011.  I already quit smoking, drinking, farting, burping, shooting zooms and masturbating so what the hell is left?  Then it hit me like a subtle ton of bricks.  What I needed was a photographic resolution.  Something that will better me as a photographer not better me as a person.  If you wanna find out what the hell I’m talkin about then follow the yellow brick road.

September 9, 2010 2 comments

Nikon has recently announced the long awaited replacement for the P6000.  Cleverly called the P7000, I’ll tell you why this camera will be an epic failure.  I’ll also tell you what this means for humanity on a greater scale.
