Ventura Print Exchange - Minolta Silver Streak Zoom

Once a month we do a print exchange here in Ventura, CA.  Basically a bunch of photographers(and other artists) bring prints, hang them up, and trade amongst each other, and since it is held at a brewery (Topa Topa Brewing), if someone is interested in a print of yours, and they down have any prints to trade, its not uncommon for them you buy you a beer for a print... For more info on the print exchange visit the Facebook Page Camera: Minolta Silver Streak ZoomFilm: Arista EDU 400

Zeiss Ikonta in Yosemite on Portra 160NC

This is the first roll of the 4 or 5 that I shot on my backpacking trip.  Portra NC is my favorite film of all time... but I'm really getting bummed that its all so far expired at this point that its starting to lose its magic...  I can see the color shifts, and deterioration coming on more and more every year... I also shot a roll of New Portra on this trip, so maybe I can do a little compare and contrast post or video or something to show the differences... You can follow along with this adventure here on my YouTube Channel Vlog Camera: Zeiss Ikonta 120 Folding Camera Film: Kodak Portra 160NC

Surfers at C-Street Ventura - Canon A-1 w/ 100-300mm - Camera Test

I've been getting a lot of inquiries about how the photos look from this camera... well, here ya go! I was bored the other day and decided to go shoot some surfers down at the point. With the size of the wave this day the waves were breaking about 40-50 yards from where I was sitting(so you can get an idea of how far this lens zooms in).  The Canon A-1 was the first SLR to offer an electronically controlled programmed auto-exposure mode, and it uses any of the FD line of Canon lenses.
