The Weekend: Halloween

Some photos from a family Halloween party. Mostly of my lil cousins though!

 

On actual Halloween night I went trick or treating with some friends. I don’t feel too old to be doing this. I don’t feel the holiday is celebrated enough, and its a fun thing to do. So might as well while I’m still young right? Probably the last year with just friends since I’ll be 21 next year lol.

New Laptop, Jones Soda, and Ultimate Spider-man

Ok I got a new laptop so I can start blogging again! I still haven’t set up photoshop but I can finally continue to shoot develop and scan film again!
Oh and what a perfect day to start blogging again because this week has been horrible. Between a hell at school and a bad ATM problem, a problem that has left me short on money for the next 5 to 10 days, I just cannot find another reasonable way to vent and relax than spending my time shooting photos again.
Oh, on the bright side of this crappy week, look at what I found in the mail today.

I sent a photo submission to Jonessoda.com to see what would happen last July and I guess I got picked.
Yeah, I know it’s not a big deal. I mean I think they choose about fifty submissions a month or something right? But my luck in photo hasn’t been so awesome recently, so it was nice to have a win for once. Even a small one like this.

On the comics side I started reading current Ultimate Spider-man (#1-14 after Ultimatum) now that I’ve finally caught up with all the trades (11 hardcovers, it was a lot). And. It. Is. Good. Oh so good. It’s a nice happy colorful adventure of spider-man on one side, and the tragic stories of horror and teen angst that was so great in the original Ult. Spider-man series on the other side. The way that Bendis just constantly beats down on a poor teen Peter Parker makes you really sympathize with him and cheer him on when the fun and happy parts of the book occur. This balance between Peter’s fun and light stories with the Human Torch, Iceman, MJ, and Gwen and Spider-man’s life of just crappy and worst things happening to him is perfect. And the bright, colorful art by Lafuente is jut amazing also. An improvement in my opinion over the last two.

Vegas for the Weekend

Yeah! Going to Vegas for the weekend! The only thing bettr is actually being 21… Why couldn’t we wait for a few months!

Ok still, I wanted to relax on this trip but still take some cool photos so i packed light, Bringing only 3 small cameras.

– My Canonet with some 800 speed film for night time shots. Don’t know if this makes any sense but I don’t really get night time photography. Wanted to test the petris 7 at Vegas but realized that its ISO only goes to 400.

– The Diana Mini with Ektar 100 and 200 speed Lucky film for the day. Wanted this toy camera so bad and got it for Christmas from my lovely sisters! But was disappointed by all its problems and after 2 rolls, never picked it up again. So trying it out again with bettr film and bettr knowledge on how to use it.

– And last, my EP-1. Mostly for my daily photos and some videos.

Ok then byebye until next week with some photos!

Yashica Mat 124G and Pentax K1000

Hey guys, just got two new cameras!

The first is a Pentax K1000 which will be a fun SLR to play with.  Trying out a roll already and it feels pretty good so far.

The real find though is a Yashica Mat 124G! I love TRLs and I only have a Yashica A and a Blackbird Fly (doesn’t really count does it?). So since, it just past my birthday I decided to treat myself. Unfortunately the light meter seems to have some problems when changing aperatures. It’s fine but I really didnt want the hassle of carrying a hand light meter (an unreliable one at that) anymore.

OK gonna shoot some film with these and post some photos latr!

Kodak Portra 800 with my Nikon N8008

Taken months ago with my Nikon N8008, with one of my favorite films, Kodak Portra 800. This is a start of a project I was working on about summer in suburbia but it didn’t work out because it was in the middle of march. But I might try again now that its hot.

Most are of my friends just goofing off. My friend Yee Yang is almost in all of them.

Kodak 400 VC Film with my Minolta SRT 200

Taken a few months ago with my Minolta SRT 200 for my photo class. Been trying out a lot of different professional films for the first time.

I spent this day hanging out with my friend Steven, shooting my new film with my slr while Steven played with my Blackbird Fly. He was holding that camera and looking through it the whole time, but to my surprise, he only took one picture.

Best Camera Ever!

Best Camera Ever! Friend got it for me at Party City for $3.

Also, don’t drink and drive, latr.
