Doubles With You: satomi and jeabzz


This is the story of the doubles with you project between satomi and jeabzz.

When Satomi and I, jeabzz decided to do doubles, we wanted to start with a roll for each other. The first roll was a random double, and I began to shoot in Paris and then Satomi shot in L.A.

For the second roll, we wanted to try something different. As I was a fan of Satomi’s macro shots, I asked her to shoot only macro shots for the second roll and then I’ll shoot regular shots. Then she had another idea which was: both of us will shoot macro and regular shots on different frames. I found the idea excellent (except the fact that I’m not really good with macro shots…:))

So this is how we proceeded.

Satomi took macro shots from frame 1 to 21 and then regular shots from frame 22 to 36.
And then I took regular shots from frame 1 to 10 and macros shots from 11 to 36.
So we finally had 10 shots in regular vs macro, then 10 in macro vs macro, and 14 in macro vs regular. (ok is this still clear to you?)

Have a look at the gallery (with shots from both collaborations) and I hope you’ll enjoy this!

Satomi says: When Jeabzz suggested to do macro doubles, I first said NO!
My macro shots have been coming out really bad lately, so I didn’t want to ruin our doubles….but jeabzz did NOT take “no” for an answer!!! I think I might have said no for the second time, but gave up afterwords. LOL! As I expected, my macro shots came out very blurry, but to my surprise, the blurriness and the color of the macro shots added something magical to the images and we had such unexpected results in our hands!

So, I must thank jeabzz for being persistent after all! :D Enjoy!!

    so what kind of lens did you use for macro shots? Just standard LCA tools? I never used LCA so sorry if I ask stupid questions)

    Spinner 360: Pull the Cord and Let the Magic Happen!

    The story between the Spinner 360 and I goes way back to the year 2010, when Lomography decided to send me a beta model of the Spinner 360 to test. It was a complete surprise! I thought, "What the hell is that?" as I first took this camera out of the package. Then, when my little brother grabbed it from me and pulled the cord, it buzzed and turned 360°! We all had the same expression: "Whoa..."
