Finally getting the calendar months together. I think it would be really cool to put together a calendar. I realize that my design is off because there are only 5 images across, but I see this as more of a visual calendar than one you actually use to keep track of days and weeks and months. I could be wrong though…

Filed in: project 365 film photography instagram instagram vs film Black and White art Day 7 Day 8 Day 9 Day 10 Hasselblad

So I finally got one roll of film developed for my 365 Project. I haven’t been numbering the rolls so that I’d know what days are on which rolls, so it will be an interesting puzzle to figure out when I am able to get the majority of these rolls processed.

This is Day 7 - 10. I shot this using Lomography Lady Grey 400 film. I did not do any research on how to properly get this roll processed so it would seem that the strange dots and numbers that appear on the negatives are not really supposed to happen. I didn’t use too much of this film throughout the year. I don’t know if I should just have the rest of my Lady Grey 400 film developed “blind” at the lab that I use so that I hopefully get the same results. I don’t mind too much the dots and numbers; it is a little stranger. Or I could send the other rolls to the LomoLab where they already know how to develop this type of film.

What do y’all think? Any suggestions/opinons?

There are just 3 days left on my Kickstarter campaign. While my success seems bleak, my project did make it to the main page under the photography category. Whether or not I am successful, I have learned a lot and I may try another fundraising campaign because I still surely do need the help. I will also continue to shoot and finish out the year. I appreciate all of my backers up to this point and I hope they will all still continue to follow me on my journey. I’ve gotten this far, I can’t stop now. 

If you do feel so inclined to make a pledge, just click the picture above. THANKS!

Something In Your Style: Humbled

whichshoesshouldiwear:

Running a Kickstarter campaign is definitely a humbling experience. It is wonderful to know that perfect strangers are interested in what I am doing and want to help me succeed. The majority of my support has come from people I don’t know. It is also humbling to know that these wonderful…

When I was a kid, my dad always made me wait till the end of the day to play the games on the Midway. And this was why: he knew that I won any of those cheap stuffed prizes he’d be the one stuck carrying. However, these fine folks had no problem carrying around their winnings and letting me take their portrait. This is just a sample of the portrait study I did on those that won the biggest prizes, literally, at the State Fair of Texas.

Mr. Eric Maltz was ever so kind as to give me permission to use this very beautiful song as the soundtrack to my Kickstarter video.  I am hoping to get this project going this week.  And I hope that you out there would consider  checking out my project!  I’ll let you know when it goes live.

This is a remix of the song “Best Friends” the 4th track on my new album “Retinae”. We can all feel Spring in the air, and I wished to capture that feeling with the sounds and atmosphere of this track.

Number 2 in a series of 12 Free Monthly Releases!

Written and produced by Eric Maltz at Notasound in Brooklyn, NY.
