Street work with Cinestill400

Some sample frames from work in progress. Shot 2 rolls of 35mm Cinestill400, a motion picture film that’s been repurposed and marketed for still photography and standard C41 lab chemistry. Found a few light leaks, some interesting color shifts and contrast effects but nothing that would make me use it instead of a more traditional emulsion unless that’s all we’ve got after the zombie apocalypse 🙂

Aramingo Ave – Gateway to the NorthEast. Pulled over for a few grab shots on a February drive home because the sky was doing that thing. Image capture on 120 format Fomapan100 black and white film with an old Yashica TLR. Exposure not recorded. Processed and scanned by Indie Labs

Ink and paper

3-11-23: Been spending some time printing photos to hang. It’s been refreshing to work with paper again after so much screen time these past couple years. I’ve made all the prints with a ‘hybrid’ process: film capture and development in C-41 chemistry by a local lab, then scanned and digitized, with basic ‘darkroom’ work done on the computer in adobe lightroom, then inkjet printed on archival paper. Here’s a teaser of 2 of the pieces from the show that should be up Monday or Tuesday next week 🙂 If you’re in Philly in March, drop by Higher Grounds cafe at 631 N 3rd (3rd and Fairmount) and take a looksie.
