  • My Analogue Life: Get Masked - A Practical Guide

    My Analogue Life: Get Masked - A Practical Guide

    I get a lot of questions. People email me about cameras and film and how to achieve certain effects with their analogue cameras. But the question I get most isn’t about tips or tricks or technique, at least once a week, it’s: where do you get those masks?

  • James Dean: A Movie Icon With an Eye for Photography

    James Dean: A Movie Icon With an Eye for Photography

  • My Analogue Life: Please Don’t Fix It In Post

    My Analogue Life: Please Don’t Fix It In Post

    If we don’t talk about it, maybe it doesn’t really exist. But we all know it does, so perhaps it’s better to get it out in the open, to be grown-ups about it, to share. I’ll go first and admit to occasional cropping and removing annoying dust particles from scans. And I’ll tell you that my biggest pet-peeve is the term “digital cross-processing” because it’s such a blatant oxymoron. But I’ll also say that my life is so much easier thanks to the Adobe Creative Suite software.

  • My Analogue Life: My Favourite Mistake

    My Analogue Life: My Favourite Mistake

    Surprise and anticipation are two of the very best things about analogue photography. It’s exciting, fun, and a thousand things digital photography can’t possibly be. But sometimes the surprises aren’t so super, like when an alternative processing experiment goes horribly wrong, or the back comes off your camera and exposes the film inside. And then there’s that occasional roll of damaged film that’s too damaged and the negatives end up being a long strip of nothing at all.

  • My Analogue Life: Film Freak

    My Analogue Life: Film Freak

  • Learning the Art of Letting Go

    Learning the Art of Letting Go

    Now, “don’t think, just shoot” has a deeper meaning for me: As I take each shot with my toy cameras, I simultaneously let go of worrying whether I got it right. As I press and let go of the shutter button, I let go of the fear of taking a crappy shot. Read how Lomography has taught me how to breathe easy.

  • My Analogue Life: The First Time

    My Analogue Life: The First Time

    I remember my first time. It was late spring, but summer had already set in. I was downtown, excited if not a bit nervous. I wanted to do it right even though I knew from other people that there was no real right or wrong way, that it’s a personal thing — everyone does it differently.
