An Addiction

So much has happened since my last post and to be honest I’m actually a little shocked. I completed my second class at Rayko (color printmaking!) which was a lot of fun. I have acquired two new cameras: a super awesome Mamiya C220 TLR that takes 120 film (medium format) and an iphone 4. I have taken a TON of photos with both and I’ve developed at least ten rolls with six more exposed rolls waiting for me in the fridge. I have made several awesome prints, I’ve become more active on flickr, and I’ve joined Instagram. Oh, and I just got back from a little vacation in San Jose and Santa Cruz.

I’m fascinated with the contrast of shooting with an iphone vs an old school professional medium format TLR. One is instant and free while the other is definitely neither but I still love using both (and of course, I’m still making time for Glady!). But honestly, I don’t really compare the two. I’m still focused on the same kind of imagery and I would rather be taking photos instead of joining the great digital vs analogue debate. But maybe I will do a little profile on each of them in future posts. Until then, here are some photos!

The first three are from the iphone, the last three are from the C220. The ones with white borders are scanned prints.
