Tony the Deli cat

After shooting at a new Hostel in Brooklyn, I passed by a deli and saw the most gorgeous and content cat sitting on a newspaper bin. I assumed he was friendly and reached out to pet him, well he wasn't...he replied with the most ferocious bite to my hand. I had to actually pry his sharp teeth off my knuckles. Wasn't the best experience. I was expecting him to dash off the bin and run away from me but he just sat there, I'm sure I saw a smirk. *shakes bruised fists*

Perfect imperfections.

Perfect imperfections. One of the many reasons I'll always love film.

If you want to know why this happened it's because I previously loaded this film into a pinhole holga camera and it was the wrong format (220 not 120) and during winding some light got in there. So I rolled back up the film in the dark and loaded it into my hassy, hoping I could salvage some images on the damaged film. So I saved half a frame.

Testing and some special effects film

As I've mentioned in the previous post I have a studio class this semester and I get to play around with artificial lights and such (not really my type, I prefer to be outdoors). But it's all a learning experience and it was fun. Some test shots from today.

The glowing skin is one of the cool effects of the sfx film, maybe I'll play around with this film outside and see what I can cook up.

Studio stuff

Playing around at the studio in my school. Using lights is sort of new to me, as I prefer to work with natural light.

This photo is funny to me. It reminds me of an old high school photo. One of those cheesy ones.

Some shots from I believe back in 2007...I forgot the band's name. If you do please let me know and I'll put it up. These are some of my fav event/night shots using no flash just the stage lights and very steady hands. For me flash ruins the mood of a moment, especially at a concert scene where there are all these cool lights and special effects. For some of the weird photos below I have no idea how they got like that, I guess it's just the beauty of accidental photography. Although it's rare to get a good "accidental" photo with once the settings are automatically put in for you, you basically know every photo you take is going to be perfect exposure. So predictable. So disposable. (and definitely no fun)

I don't come here anymore as I usually do, but the vibe is always good and there's always free entertainment. There's always somebody doing something.
