Yes, I posted them on Instagram as well but happy a b9er bought them. The lenses are great and are in great condition, I just use my Canon G7x Mark ii way more and rarely pick up my Fuji X-Pro these days.

I'm trying to save up for a Contax G2 or Fuji Ga645zi, both cameras I have wanted for a very long time and decided I should get rid of cameras that I don't use/want anymore for something I really want.

Apologies in advance because I"m sure it's been covered, but does anyone have good recs for resources for a crash course in photography techniques and just figuring out basic camera settings/iso all that. I'm trying to jump in but I feel like it's a crap shoot every time I do it.

As for settings and shit, look up the exposure triangle. It'll explain how ISO, shutter speed, and aperture all effect one another. Look up Ansel Adams' book The Camera if you wanna go deep in the basics. Other than that just go shoot and see first hand how the setting change the image.

For little things to keep in mind:
If it's sunny, set your aperture to 16 and your shutter speed to close to the same number as your ISO. ie: f/16, 1/125, iso 100.
If it's overcast, set your aperture to 8. f/8, 1/125, iso 100.
If you're in the shadow of a building f/5.6 1/125, iso 100.
Fudge it up and down as needed, but those will get you close to decent exposures.

Generally, try to keep your shutter speed equal or greater than the length of your lens. ie: 35mm lens, don't go lower than 1/30th. 80mm lens, 1/125. Try to aim for higher. This will keep your photos from getting too blurry from your hands' and body's natural shake/motion. Wider lenses are more forgiving.

Look up the rule of thirds, golden ratio, and other compositional rules. Learn those. Then ignore them completely after they're ingrained in your head.

Look at old photographs from the masters. Get off of social media photo outlets. Figure out what kind of photos you're drawn to, then start seeing connections between those. Is it composition, content, etc? Put that in your photos.

So fucking stoked. Been trying to get on New York Times radar for years and finally got an email from the culture photo editor that they really like my work and will be getting me some assignments.

I've been waiting so long for this and really hope to make the most of the opportunity.

Where's the cheapest and most convenient place to get B&W 35mm film? Amazon?
I finally figured out how to fix my old Nikkormat I think, and wanna test it out.

Short answer: No preference right now, whatever is cheap works. Thank you.

Long answer: When I was a teenager, I was casually into photography, and then went to film school, where there is a lot of crossover. I recently dug out a bunch of old equipment, including a Nikkormat El that I thought was broken, but the mirror was just locked and I have it working again (or so I think). I'm currently reading a bunch, and just ordered some new batteries for it, and some film so that I can start playing with it and remembering everything I have forgotten.

So next question... where should I send it to get developed in 2017? I assume you have to send film away now if you don't want to develop it yourself, yeah?

Also I just interviewed and wrote an article on my favorite photographer. It was cool getting to talk to him about the stuff he did and hear his thoughts on it, and how he did it. I'll post a link once he gets a chance to look over it first.

Beautiful work, dude. That portrait of Jacob Bannon is ridiculously awesome. I've got two questions for you: 1) do you develop your own film? 2) who's been your favorite individual to photograph?

Thanks! Yep, all black and white stuff I do myself. I love shooting my friend Rachel, the woman near the bottom, to the left of the dude with the big beard. She's been a great friend for more than a decade, and is always willing to get photographed and always brings something to her portrait. Also, Emma Ruth Rundle, who's also in that post, is always down to collaborate and make cool images.

It just depends. You can find some Pentax and Mamiyas that are pretty affordable ($300-$650), but then there are plenty that run in the thousands. And digital MF is fucking crazy expensive. Some bodies being as high as $17,000.

Definitely depends on what you want but you can find systems for around $300 or less. Most will be bulky and heavy so that's something to keep in mind as well. A 645 system will likely be less of a burden than a TLR or 6x7 camera. As a suggestion if you're not ready to fully jump into it, look at the Fuji GA systems, they're basically a medium format point and shoot but have super sharp lenses and are easier to walk around with.

I shot with one over the summer and enjoyed it, but just liked having manual options more

Posting a lot again, which must mean wedding season is over. Y'all don't want to see that stuff anyway, right? heh.

Either way, I got my Paul C. Buff 47" octabox yesterday and I am in love with this thing already. I've only worked with it for about 20 minutes so far, just some quick frames late last night when we made it home, but yeah, it rules. It's so much more dynamic than my PCB softboxes, which I do like. They just don't diffuse quite as much. Like with this octa, I can shoot at f/2 without any blowout or anything. With my softboxes, it was always f/9 or further down. Anything else would leave everything bleached in light.

Anyway, here are just some quick test frames and quick edits of my wife from last night. Stoked on this thing and to use it a lot more.

I'm also trying not to use shit like VSCO anymore when it comes to "studio" based work. Working more on doing the color grading and toning myself. I'm just meh on the output so far though.

I got one of those really cheap ring lights that affix to the lens last night. I actually got it for a video interview I'm shooting Saturday, to use as a cheap and easy kind of even fill light. But since I got it in the mail yesterday I was playing with it and taking some photos. Thing is a pretty damn cool today. I'd be interested in working my way up to necessitating a real one.

Nah, my wet plate set up is broken down at the moment. No good place to make them at my current apartment. That stuff with Jake is on New55, a positive/negative instant film, based roughly on the old Polaroid type 55
