Studio Practice with Aiko

Creating a very ghetto rigged studio out of my living room has been surprisingly constructive. Shoving around all the furniture and setting up some sort of background brings out a little creativity to get things in order.  I’ll need to pick up pieces of furniture or something to add to the photos.  @spicyaoiroll had a lovely black dress that we used to shoot with a white backdrop.  I could see myself getting tired of white, so even just a different color of paper roll would be nice.   We snapped a couple more outback with a vape.  When the wind isn’t a problem, the clouds created can make for a really unique element in the photo.

Beach session with the Fuji XT-2

I’ve been bringing out the XT-2 pretty consistently since I got it.  This day was no different, the 56mm Fujinon was the only lens I used for this day out with Lauren.  The focal length took some getting used to.  I initially shot at 135mm for a majority of the time last year.  While I do enjoy the compression from such a long lens, it’s nice to work in areas that have limited space, something the 135mm lens wouldn’t do easily. This area didn’t have much room to step back so it worked out very well.

All Day I Dream About Pizza

I managed to get a small gig shooting some products for a local skate brand. All Day I Dream About Pizza had a few shirts and pins to display.  This was the first time I got to shoot products for someone and the general theme kind of lined up with how I normally shoot anyway.   more “All Day I Dream About Pizza”

Tourist time

Hung out with @kougs for a little walk around a hotel in Waikiki.  The lighting had changed from the last time I took photos there so things didn’t go as planned, but we still managed to get something out of it.  more “Tourist time”

CatParty Walks 03 Anne

Hung out at the beach with Anne for little shoot.  It’s been several months since I had a chance to take photos with her so I brought a bunch of extra cameras to compensate.  My Fuji Instax wide and Contax G1 seen a decent amount of action in between the digital photos with my Canon. My GoPro was set on a tripod to record the video.  I also had my Yashica 635 on hand, but didn’t have a chance to bring it out, perhaps I reached my limit at 4 cameras per shoot. more “CatParty Walks 03 Anne”
