  • Table Rock (Central Point, Oregon)

    Table Rock (Central Point, Oregon)
    I have been making the hike up Table Rock since my elementary school field trip days. It has been everything from a fun activity with friends to a place to spend quality time with my Mom, from a spur of the moment way to kill boredom to a place to get away from the stresses of the everyday electronic (digital!) world. Currently, my boyfriend and I make the trip there whenever we both have a day off and aren't too busy with life's chores, which ends up being once every week or so.
  • Agfa APX (35mm, 400 iso) User-Review

    Agfa APX (35mm, 400 iso) User-Review
    I've always preferred color over black & white, being particularly fond of the xpro extremes found in slide film. Occasionally I'll pick up some B&W in an effort to become more familiar with it, but I always end up going back to color. During my latest experience, however, part of me has turned: the film was Agfa APX, 400 speed, 35mm, and the results were a rainbow of grays, classic and impressive all at once.

    Konica APS - A Slightly Different Disposable
    The Konica APS Disposable camera is a cute little expired one time use camera that is loaded with Advanced Photo System film, also referred to as Advantix.

    Fuji Velvia (35mm, 100 iso) user-review
    "... But he's been pretty much yellow / And I've been kinda blue / But all I can see is Red, red, red, red, red now / What am I gonna do ..." I don't know what Fiona Apple's plan of action is, but I'm off to buy some more Fuji Velvia 35mm slide film!
  • Kodak Ektar (35mm, 100 iso) user-review

    Kodak Ektar (35mm, 100 iso) user-review
    Ektar film seems to be all the rage these days. Every time I hear someone mention the name (or see it typed) I automatically think it's a misspelling or mispronunciation of inspirational teacher Eckhart Tolle. Then I realize they are talking about Kodak's new 35mm color negative film, the film claiming to be so fine grain and producing such vivid colors that you've gotta see it yourself. Once and for all, I decided I wanted to stop confusing this film with my favorite self-help guru and gain some personal experience with it. I ordered 3 rolls online.
  • LCA+ - A Dream Come True

    LCA+ - A Dream Come True
    I wanted an LCA from the first moment I discovered its existence. I'd see these motion-filled photos, full of color and life, usually of some exotic place, some fascinating building, or a scene with people who looked like they were having the time of their life...I wanted to be one of those people! I wanted to be documenting life with a camera that would take pictures such as those!
  • Lomolitos on New Year's Eve!

    Lomolitos on New Year's Eve!
    With New Year's Eve fast approaching and a date with my boyfriend and his little sister in sight, I knew I was gonna need to capture all the different feelings of that night: closeness with family, excitement for the new year, reflection of the past, and a whole lotta chaos; I had to decide what camera(s) to have on me that would be versatile enough to handle the night. I then looked under our tree (it's fake...we tend to put off taking it down) and saw one of my favorite Christmas presents: a four pack of Lomolitos! I knew this would be the lucky night to break them in.
  • Ma's Restaurant

    Ma's Restaurant
    Hear the name "Ma's" and you might conjure up the image of an old, large, greasy woman flipping pancakes and grumpily asking what you'd like to order, according to my boss; apparently the name didn't entice many customers in the early years. But prejudices finally subsided and people were pleased to discover that Ma's was actually a locally owned Chinese/Thai restaurant found right in the heart of downtown Central Point, and has now not only been thriving for the past 10+ years, but has been my place of employment for the last 3 of them.
  • Kodak High Definition (35mm, 400 iso) user-review

    Kodak High Definition (35mm, 400 iso)  user-review
    Cross processing has fast become an addiction of mine, but once in a while I think it’s good to step back and make sure I don’t underestimate nature’s ordinary colors by using some good ole’ color print film.
  • Split-Cam

    When they call this image fusion, they aren't joking! The first thing I noticed upon developing a roll of film through the Split-Cam was that some of the "tricks" or images we were trying to create didn't quite line up how we thought they would. The second thing I noticed was that it didn't seem to matter; this camera is capable of funny, unique, and sometimes intense photo combinations even if things don't come out quite like you thought they would (don't forget about the 8th and 9th rules of Lomography!)
  • Fuji Sensia 200 (35mm, 200 iso) user-review

    Fuji Sensia 200 (35mm, 200 iso) user-review
    Another side of the rainbow: As a fan of Fuji Provia when it comes to cross-processing, I decided I wanted to try another variety of Fuji film and see just how similar or different my xpro results could be. Upon finding a roll of 200 speed Sensia that was a year expired, I decided that this discounted slide film would be a good one to try out. Although I was testing two variables at once here (a different kind of film as well as being expired) and therefore cannot say which results came from which factor, I can at least say that whatever the influence, the results were drastically different than what I’m used to!
  • Fuji Provia (35mm, 400 iso) user-review

    Fuji Provia (35mm, 400 iso) user-review
    X-pro Perfection: Fuji Provia is a beautiful film to shoot cross-processed photos with. Capable of a wide range of blues and greens, depending on what lighting you are shooting in, you will easily fulfill your satisfaction for impressive color shifts and intense contrasts when using this film.
  • Vivitar UWS: Livin La Vivi Loca

    Vivitar UWS: Livin La Vivi Loca
    I’ve gotten a lot of experience with the Fisheye 2 and the Actionsampler, but I’ve been in want of something more, let’s say, traditional. Vignettes in the corners! Saturated colors! One lens producing a good-old rectangular photo! But funds are short and something like the LCA has to wait for Christmas, so what do I do to quench my thirst in the meantime? I’d heard about this “Vivi” and seen sample photos that, whether due to my inexperience with the LCA or the expertise of the photographers posting them, looked very reminiscent of that famous Minitar lens. Mix in some Diana softness and vignettes, add a splash of Fisheye-suggestive wide angles, and you’ve got some pretty impressive photos.
  • Tis the Season for Jacksonville, OR

    Tis the Season for Jacksonville, OR
    Jacksonville, Oregon is a historic town found right in the center of Oregon’s wine country. It’s about a 20 minute drive to get there from my apartment in Central Point. It has always been a favorite stop for my Mom and I when looking for something fun to do on a Saturday afternoon, or when we’d have family visiting from far away, anxious to go sight-seeing.
  • Downtown Seattle

    Downtown Seattle
    Grunge music, perpetual rain, the foundation of today’s most popular coffee…step foot in downtown Seattle and you’ll find it all, whether it’s coming from the music of street performers, the freshly brewed aromas at Pike Place Market, or the feel of your sweatshirt hood pulled against your face. These are things commonly associated with Seattle, even for people who’ve never been there before. But what I got from visiting this city was more than what could be contained in any amount of cliches combined.

  • The Haunted Brick Building (Central Point US)

    The Haunted Brick Building (Central Point US)
    This brick building, located in Central Point and built in 1908, was recently placed on the National Historical Society list as a building that cannot be torn down. But there is another side to this building that is just as interesting as it's looks and age...
  • Actionsampler - A Diary For The Eyes

    Actionsampler - A Diary For The Eyes
    The ActionSampler: the classy, Andy Warhol-type feel of the Pop 9, but subtract a few frames and add movement. The synchronization of the lenses not only creates motion, but adds more layers to the entire photo as a whole, allowing for more room to learn from and dissect your shots. You not only have one photo to look at and analyze/admire/abhor/etc., but you've got 4 sub-photos, too; you basically have 5 different views in one simple "click.”
  • Lakeview

    I recently went camping with my boyfriend and his grandparents to a place just outside of the desolate town of Lakeview, Oregon. I'd heard about the town from some acquaintances that's grown up in Lakeview, and they'd told me all about what you could find there: nothing.
  • Fisheye No. 2 - What I've Learned

    Fisheye No. 2 - What I've Learned
    Surely we all know about the Fisheye 2 camera and its features by now - 170 degree perspective, double exposure "mx" button, "b" setting to allow endless opening of the shutter, and ability to distort objects. But during the past year or so, I've been documenting everything from road trips to everyday life with my Fisheye 2, and I've learned a few things through my experience.
