Usually my first post of the year is about my reflection on the previous year. I’ll eventually get to it…probably later today. But for now, here are some photos I took for an Adapt shoot that I have been trying to get done. Unfortunately this was the only shoot I did because the holidays were so busy. Hopefully there will be more to come. I decided to use my older Minolta SRT101 instead of my newer Pentax. For some reason I feel like my photos come out better on my Minolta.
Abi was able to take some time to help me shoot this while she was home visiting and she got her friend John to help out as well. Thanks guys!
If you know me or have read my blog in the past you would know that I’m a fan of JGL. Earlier this year my friend sent me a link for a show that was happening in SF that he was going to be at. That was the first time I heard of hitRECord. If you haven’t heard of JGL’s production company, hitRECord, you’re missing out. It brings together a pool of creativity from writers, photographers, artists, etc and helps collaborate the different ideas. For example, if a writer wrote a short story and posted it on the website, an artist can take the story and make illustrations to it. If any of the productions make money, the money gets split 50/50, half to hitRECord and half to the artists that contributed to that production. Aside from that, it’s a great way to get your projects out there. They also host live shows that include poets, story readings, performances, and more. I’d say it’s a great community for creativity.
Btw, I want the Tiny Book of Tiny Stories. If you’re wondering what it is, it’s a tiny book, with tiny stories. JGL makes me want to buy it (*swoooon*). Haha Jk, well…half truth. Seems like a great book for a stalking stuffer or Secret Santa. Maybe it’ll be on my list this year. That’s if I don’t buy it first.
I spent last weekend in Fremont for my friend Trina’s wedding. I’ve known Trina for almost my whole life and it’s nice to know that we’re still good friends until this day. She’s one of those friends that I may not see all the time, but when we see each other it’s as though time hasn’t passed and I can talk to her about anything. I swear it was just yesterday we were kids.
Since it was an outdoor wedding I decided to bring out my film SLR and shoot in black & white. I’m hoping to get back into film and start developing my own photos, but we’ll see how much time I have for it. I used three rolls, two black & white and one color. If you take a lot of photos you know that you can shoot 100 shots and only come out with a handfull of good ones. I know some are a little blurry, but these are my favorites…
