Beach One-Klaloch

By |October 27th, 2017|Believeinfilm, black and white film, Film Photography, Medium Format, Pacific Northwest, Washington|

The last day in Forks was spent around Klaloch's Beach One. After checking out of the Town Motel I headed south on the 101 for one last look at the coast. I was to head inland later this day and though I'd still see the water - it wouldn't be the coast of the North Pacific. I wanted to say goodbye. Looking for nothing specific and driving slowly, the large burls on Beach One's Sitka [...]

Elk Mountain, Wyoming

South Brush Creek, Snowy Range, Wyoming At first it looked like a dead animal - a brownish, furry lump in the middle of the dirt 320. The wind blew and late morning sun peeked in and out of an active sky. Through a dirty windshield it was tough to make out. As the car slowly rolled closer, the profile of a small head emerged from the fur, then turned a few times trying to get [...]

Kodachrome

By |July 12th, 2014|Uncategorized|

I've been going through some old images for re-scan and really missing Kodachrome lately. I've also noticed how many more vertical images I made before the computer became the standard for viewing. Vertical images were desirable for publication covers. With 35mm film and a good reproduction they were the norm. These days, with the computer's horizontal aspect ratio dictating how most people view photographs, it seems vertical images are made less - which is another [...]

Fear and Loathing in Bushnell, Nebraska

By |July 4th, 2014|4042n, Film Photography|

Pine (Bluffs), Wyoming lay at the extreme south-eastern corner of the state, a stone’s throw from Nebraska along the Old Lincoln Highway and I-80. My visit to Pine was late in the year with my dog Henry. Over the course of several months we’d seen Henry begin to slow and knew he’d begun his journey home. Not wanting to miss any opportunities with him I took the Jeep this trip, knowing he’s more comfortable than in [...]

Opening Post

By |June 28th, 2014|4042n, General Information|

It’s very difficult to write well about an image. The power of the image is how it employs imagination; its ability to transport the viewer to a unique place or moment in time that - for all intents and purposes - is the sum of visual stimulus plus - the unique life experience belonging solely to that individual. In that moment these two things combine to produce an experience unique to that person, that image, [...]

Honesty

By |November 27th, 2012|4042n, Film Photography|

Blue Hour, Soapstone Prairie Open Space, Northern Colorado (Kodak Portra 160) I went on one of my 4042n jaunts last Saturday, this time to SoapStone Prairie Open Space, a relatively new area at the extreme edge of Colorado. You can cross into Wyoming on one of the short backcountry trails. Having decided the goal for the day was to record honest images, I headed out with a pack full of Portra 160, some Ektar, some [...]

The New Kodak Portra (again)

By |June 8th, 2012|4042n, F6, Film Photography|

Today I received back from the lab my two rolls of Portra 160 shot over the weekend. The more I shoot this film, the more I like it. I know, I know... I'm in love with every film when it comes back from the lab and I get lucky with a shot turning out as hoped. But I'm beginning to see real benefits in sticking with an emulsion over a period of time to learn [...]
