One of my favorite anniversaries is the anniversary of me and my BFF's friendship.
On March 30, 2007 I met Kristen. I had moved to Phoenix a couple months earlier and didn’t have any friends yet, but Kristen and I were both getting married soon, and both wanted someone to work out with.
We bonded over our love of kids, rum and cokes, and running out to get spur of the moment tattoos together (some of which are much better than others thanks to the aforementioned rum and cokes). Eventually we both got into photography, both started shooting professionally, then fell in love with analog photography, especially instant cameras.
Every year, around the time of our friend-versary, we plan a grand and epic adventure. It involves getting on the lightrail in downtown Phoenix, rolling dice to determine where we go, then complete predetermined tasks where ever the dice tells us to get off — like asking the first person we see wearing a hat where the nearest park is then going there to climb trees and play; walking four blocks east from where ever we happen to be and taking pictures of the coolest architecture we find; and lots of trusting bartenders to bring us whatever fabulous drinks they think we would enjoy.
This is a story of me and Sardine, my first ever analogue camera. We've been traveling for thousands of miles and met a lot of friends. Even though I have better cameras, Sardine is the one camera that will always be in my heart! So once again, this is my story with Sardine
Every year I get the winter blues. I start imagining the feel of the sunrays, ice cold beer after a long summer day, and the endless hours spent on the beach. I have captured moments, memories, and dreams this year, which is my favorite thing to do. This is a short version and visual diary of my year 2014.
You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens photos are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!
I have good memories of Tagaytay Highlands. There had been times when some of my friends and I would spend the weekend there, playing all sorts of sports and having our bodies healed in the warm and lapping jacuzzi pool. But those were distant memories. I was able to go back to this place, but only for an afternoon, and tried to remember the good old days.
They say you can't teach an old dog new tricks, but whoever said that must have never shot with a Konica C35. This 46-year-old beauty can definitely hang with the big boys. Come see why this camera is one of my favorites, and why it should be one of yours, too.
The Diana Mini is turning five years old this month! Through the years we have seen this sweet and petite 35mm camera transform from a classic analogue beauty to a blinged-out snapshooter and everything else in between. Remember the Love Letters edition? How about the Premier Cru? To refresh your memory here's a gallery of all the Diana Mini styles we've released in the past five years. Which among these limited edition Clones is your favorite?
