Someone Else’s Stuff Showcase #2: Pacific + Pine
…And a Brief Update
I took a risk with a roll of very expired Portra 800, since it was all I had at the time, and shot some gorgeous images on it. I know I nailed the exposure and the composition. But alas, I got burned. The film was a bit too expired.
And so this, in combination with the complications of equipping myself with a crude developing and printing setup (good 80mm enlarging lenses are hard to come by for less than $100 on Ebay, it seems*), has resulted in a lack of images posted to the blog.
I have plans, though - big plans…or at least medium-sized ones.
But in the absence of worthwhile work of my own to post, I thought I would share this exquisite composition and use of light by someone better at this photography thing than I, the author of the Pacific & Pine blog over at http://pacificandpine.tumblr.com/. He (or she) has an excellent eye, capturing normal, mundane life with a refreshing perspective on 35mm film. I commend the blog to you and certainly recommend following him (or her) (or them) (or whatever).
*Anybody know where I can get a good Rodagon 80mm f/4 or Componon-S 80mm f/4 for less than $100? (If you actually visit my blog, you can answer in the comments…)
