Out in the desert at Calico Basin. Just a stones throw from the edge of the city but a place you can forget where you are. One of my favorite shots from recent times.

Been a while since I got out at night and did some shooting. Even took a few with the Hassleblad too.

Hasselblad 500CM
Carl Zeiss 50mm f/4.0 Distagon
Hasselblad Polaroid 100 Back
Fuji FP-100C B&W conversion
Exposure: f/4.0 1/2

Vintage Gossen Lunasix light meter and the A12 back that made way for the Polaroid back to take this shot. Been a while since I used the instant back. First shot out was all cloudy with the full two minutes to develop. Second shot was a little better but I would say it pays to use these film packs when they are fresh as they have inconsistent exposure otherwise. Converted to B&W because of the usual horrible color cast from my office lamp.

Regarding the Gossen light meter, I have had this a few years and was bought off of eBay. It gave me around 6 months good service before it started giving me readings around 2 – 3 stops off. If anyone is interested in repairing it or using it as is, I would gladly give it away to the first person who pays for shipping. It is in need of a new battery.

Out take from a shoot I did for some friend’s "Save the Date" pictures. I liked this one because it has a "surveying my kingdom" feel to it.

Bridge to confusion

I am not exactly sure of my location on this shot, so it’s a guess. I am definitely looking at Planet Hollywood with the camera resting on the rail of the bridge. There is a lot going on this shot but I mainly like it for the otherworldly light with the alien-like figures in silhouette. If you ever had doubts about shooting Ilford Delta 3200, go out a buy a couple of rolls right now 🙂
