The Death of Fujifilm…

Yes, I know, this title may seem like it’s another “film is not really dead” or “hate on Fujifilm” article. However, that could not be further from the truth. I really don’t even want to get into that conversation here. This article is about Fujifilm Acros 100, myself, as well as other photographers and creatives. 

Most photographers, especially those photographers who still have a passion for film know that Fuji recently announced that Acros 100 has been discontinued in all formats. I recently placed what will most likely be the last order for this film. It took 3 weeks for Freestyle Photographic in California to get me the film as it was on back order. As soon as I received it, I went to place another order and they did not even have it offered on their website for purchase anymore. 

I have been tossing around ideas on what to shoot with the last 13 rolls of 120 film that I have. Obviously I want to capture some meaningful images. Being that it’s a 100 speed film trying to capture my 7, 5, and 6 month old children would be more difficult than I’d like as I would need fast shutter speeds and great depth of field for those munchkins. This is where you as a photographer or creative come in…

With the remaining 13 rolls of Fuji Acros 100 that I have, I’d like to make portraits of other photographers. I want to create some magical portraits using off camera flash as well as natural light. I want to show how well the highlights, midtones, and shadows react in different lighting scenarios. Over the next several months I’d like to book photographers from all over the Dallas Fort Worth metroplex and create a body of work in which I can make into a book. If you are a photographer and would like to take part of this project and let me photograph you please contact me as soon as possible. If you are a videographer and would link to document this project that would be amazing. Please contact me for more info or to set up a portrait session. 

NTxFP Meet up: 12.09.17

On the second Saturday of every month the North Texas Film Photography group meets up for what’s called the Second Saturday Social. Sometimes the group meets up just to have some coffee and talk photography, and other times the group does both and goes on a photo walk. Here is the gear I used and some of the images that I made during the photo walk.

Gear used:

  • Bronica ETRS
  • Zenzanon 75mms F2.8
  • Ilford Delta 400
  • Vivitar 285hv flash
  • Diffuser on flash
  • Developed in Ilfotec DD-X

Trunk or Treat 2017

It seems as though Halloween officially kicks off the fall season. Kids and adults alike look forward to this time of year. Each year that passes it seems as though there are more and more trunk or treat events all over the Dallas – Fort Worth Metroplex. This year I heard about a trunk or treat event at the downtown square in my hometown, Garland, Texas. This event was hosted by Instrinsic Smokehouse & Brewery , Lifewell Church , (which if you’re looking for a place to worship and feel welcome, I suggest you visit. However, I’m a little bias because I absolutely love this church) , Church @ the Square , and The Foundry Church. In my opinion these types of events provide a great alternative to walking throughout neighborhoods going door to door. I decided to photograph this event and provide free portraits for those who were interested. I love being able to share my talent with others. As the holidays are approaching it’s a reminder for me to really reflect on life as I lost both my parents during the holiday time.  When you start to lose people close to you, you realize that life is precious, you learn to treasure each moment, don’t take people for granted, time waits for no-one, be present, and be a present. I run a semi part-time photography business, and I greatly appreciate anyone who is willing to bless me with their hard-earned money so that I can provide portraits for them. However, at this point in my life I am less concerned with business and more concerned with capturing moments! Below are some of my favorite images from the event on Sunday! Be blessed! Happy holidays!

Rock Hunt

DSCF8864

Recently, I discovered the painted rock hobby that kids and adults alike are involved with. I’ve found several at local parks and have let my kids hid them again for others to find. Friday the 13th is traditionally thought to be a day of random bad luck happening. However, this past Friday the 13th was a blast. Several people painted rocks and organized a rock hunt at a local park. Around 40 people showed up for the event and plenty of kids left happy and excited with their findings.
