"In a world where you can be anything, be kind." #muttsandmurals 
Logan Square, Chicago, May 2017.

Shot with my Rollei 35s on HP5 film. Semi-stand development in Rodinal at 1:100 dilution. Scanned on Epson v600.

Life can seem so scripted sometimes, that some days, you just need to get out there and do something different. That's why I like shooting film. It's different, and I'm never quite sure what I'm going to get. It encourages me to get out and shoot something, and find something I haven't seen before. So take a break from the routine, and shoot something you've never seen before. Oh yeah, and be kind.

Haywood you like to have lunch with me?

Diptychs are fun. I sometimes don't think enough about how I plan on displaying a photo before taking a photo. But I've been thinking I should do more photos like this. It shows that there are always 2 sides to every story, while also showing that my good side is when I stay behind the camera. (It also gives me an opportunity to show someone else how to use my camera and have them experience the joy of creating something in a snap.) #filmisnotdead #filmphotography #analog #rollei35s #ilfordhp5 #chicago #35mm

You can call them bicyclists, cycling enthusiasts, or even bike lovers. Just don't call them pedal-philes.

I don't know what it is, but I love people who get around on bikes. It's a means of travel that is efficient, quiet and eco-friendly. I especially love it when the people are wearing suits or dresses, because it adds a layer of intrigue because of how paradoxical it seems (at least in the US anyway). Next time I'll have to be more patient, and wait for just the right subject to cross my path.

When I shoot film, I tend to shoot medium format, since it gives me a different look than I can get with my full frame DSLR. I don't shoot as much 35mm film, since it's a bit of a pain to scan and the 35mm cameras I have are a little on the bulky side. That is until I got this used Rollei 35S from germany.

The battery for the meter is hard to find, so I just use a light meter app on my phone. It's got a nice 40mm f/2.8 lens, and requires zone focusing since there is no rangefinder or prism. This thing is just a bit bigger than a deck of cards but smaller than George Costanza's wallet. So the whole thing easily fits in a jacket pocket, or the pocket of your JNCOs. Anyway, I took it on a run with me, and snagged this photo.

Old friends on discontinued film. (Or is it the other way around?) Chicago, IL. May, 2017.
Shot with my Mamiya RZ67 Pro II on Fujifilm FP-3000B instant film.

Sometimes, when friends come to visit, I make it a point to take a photo of them. I say something smooth, like, "why don't you get yo' fine asses on my couch, and I'm a take a photo of you." FP-3000B is probably my favorite film. It develops quickly and the contrast is just so beautiful. After you peel it apart, it gives you a print positive, and a negative which can be easily scanned without having to bleach it (I just took a quick iPhone photo of the negative and inverted the colors here). It's versatility and the ability to shoot large or medium format and have an instant photo is just too enjoyable. Sad to say I'm down to 1 photo left in this pack; and with unopened packs going for $65 for a pack of 10 on eBay (and rising), it may also be my last time using FP-3000. #mamiyarz67 #mamiyafeatures #fp3000b #analog #filmisnotdead #filmphotography #analogphotography #fujifilm
