Desert Moon

The last little bit of sunset was ducking behind some distant hills when I turned around and noticed the lovely scene playing out behind me. The moon was out, snuggling with the clouds, and there was this vast, beautiful desert before me.

This photo was take on my Polaroid 430 Land Camera using expired Polaroid 690 film.

PX 70 Color Shade Film PUSH. New film from The Impossible Project.
Taken using my SX 70 camera (Alpha 1, Model 2)
Happy light leak-- I covered it as soon as it ejected from the camera, but some sunlight must have gotten on it somehow. Hence is lovely pink glow.

Can you believe that yet another year is wrapping up? My how 2010 has flown by. Is it just me or did it seem to go by faster than last year?

A tiny piece of desert, just for you

Arizona Strip, outside of Paiute Cave. I love the desert. Good thing, too, since I live in it.

Cami and Andrew, part 3

Kolob Couple, originally uploaded by Janelka.

I can't help from sharing another photo of the series. The big day is just under a couple of weeks away. So exciting! 

This photo was taken on a Keystone 60 second Everflash camera (Polaroid clone)-- and the film is Polaroid 690 pack film. 

The 690 and the ID-UV are tied as my favorite films. I think the 690 has a little more yellow to it, which is great fun in fields of golden grass, but the ID-UV has that amazing tendency to have the sky go all aqua. I can't decide what I like better.

Cami and Andrew, part 2

Another of Cami and Andrew from our photo shoot. They did the hard work, scouting out the location ahead of time. Apparently Andrew stops in to photograph this area whenever he's around. He picked a lovely spot. And the day was just fantastic for photos. The lighting changed a few times. Believe it or not, I prefer the challenge of adjusting for the lighting. You get so many more options and moods out of one shoot that way.

This photograph was shot on my sx70 using The Impossible Project's px70 film. I love how this shot turned out. It is my personal favorite. And yes, now I'm hoping to have someone take a few more Polaroid photos of Jon and I dressed up in our wedding attire. And maybe a few Holga shots as well... yea, that'd be nice.

Cami and Andrew

Bride and Groom. So cute. So sweet. So in love. I love Cami to pieces, and I'm so glad I got to take some of her photos today. She is such a beautiful bride, and she and her man look so good together.
This shot was taken on a Polaroid 430 land camera using 690 film (expired May 2009). I peeled it a little early so that the colors didn't finish developing, and the end result-- slightly more vintage colors.
