While scouting the Newhall Mansion for an upcoming wedding, I was able to play around with a friends macro lens. The mansion offers many trinkets worth taking a second look at. Canon 5D Mark III, Canon Macro Lens EF 100mm f/2.8.

I shot this at Newhall Mansion after scouting it for an upcoming wedding. The historic mansion is full of pleasant surprises, beautiful architecture, and lovely views. I am very much looking forward to capturing the beautiful couple at this amazing location. Taken with my Canon AE-1, Kodak Portra 800 film.

White Castle, Wales (Film Image)

White Castle, Wales. Taken with my Canon AE-1 Program using Kodak Portra 400 35mm film. I’m on the fence about the Portra 400. I haven’t had great luck with it. I don’t know if my camera just disagrees with it or what. I have a few rolls now that have not come out nearly as well as the Portra 800. I don’t think I’ll be using Portra 400 again and if I do, I’ll use a different film camera and see how it goes. To me, this picture is off in color and I know I can edit in post, and I will later, but I usually don’t edit anything and if I do it is very minor. I’ve noticed with Kodak Portra 800, I never have to touch my images because they come out just as I expect them to. There’s just something off about the Kodak Portra 400 film and really it’s a bit disappointing after having such a great experience using Portra 800.

World Photo Day

It’s World Photo Day! To be fair, I had no idea this day existed but I’m sure glad I didn’t miss it. On August 19, 1839 the French government purchased the patent of the Daguerreotype, which was invented in 1837 by Joseph Nicèphore Nièpce and Louis Daguerre. The French government announced the purchase by proclaiming it as a gift “Free to the World”. This is just a very brief background and I encourage everyone to check out WorldPhotoDay.com to learn more. I took the above photo at Newhall Mansion with my Canon AE-1 35mm using Kodak Portra film.

Ceiling of the lower level of Lacock Abbey. This historic area is so interesting and I can’t wait to explore it some more on a future trip. Taken with my Fuji X-E1 which turned out to be the perfect travel companion.
