My wife and I spent a few days in Tokyo for the New Year, our first trip there with our 5-year-old in tow. Between taking him to the Ghibli Museum in Mitaka and Disney Sea, I managed to do a quick run to the camera store to get these: Instax Mini Chrome film and a Lomography Light Painter. Eager to test them out and hope to post the results within the next two years – HAH! Bad blogger!

Canoe Dig It?

Fujifilm Natura 1600 film is a specialty film stock best used in low light, but it can handle beach lighting situations as long as your camera can compensate. The grain in the photo doesn’t work with the subject and scene. This shot would have been better with something ASA 100 or 200.

Here’s a tip for all us forgetful folks:  Write down the film stock you’re using on a strip of masking tape and stick that on the back of your camera. 

Shot with a Ricoh GR1 point and shoot.

Tempus fugit, or so the Romans used to say. I’ve neglected this blog for far too long (and wasted a year’s worth of domain name charges!), and I must make amends. 

I’ve been busy, far too busy than any well-adjusted person has any right to be. The professional publishing world (where I live in) does not stop on weekends, holidays and sick leaves, so I’ve had little time to pursue my, eherm, hobby. Things have started lightening up recently, thank goodness, with some new members in my editorial team to delegate to, and better processes in place. More time to shoot, fabulous!

I’ll try to keep my posts short, to give me no excuse not to update this site. Tonight I leave you with this, a photo of my wife, shot in Virac, Catanduanes, on Fujifilm Provia 120 film on a circa 1930s-1940s Zeiss Ikon Ikonta B 521/16 medium format folder.
