Hey guys, I don't have plans for projects any time soon so I closed the membership feature. Instead of storing the videos in a locked-down attic, I'm sharing them here, and I hope you enjoy them and find them useful! :) I plan to publish future screencasts directly to YouTube, so make sure to subscribe to my channel for updates!Read More
I've been aware of the kaleidoscope effect, but I didn't get it until I saw Berta Pfirsich's feature on Need Supply. Her kaleidoscope photo of Kailey was stunning. Then, shortly after, I began to notice the kaleidoscope effect in other places, like in some fashion spreads photographed by Amanda Leigh Smith and Rebekah Campbell. Very inspiring indeed. So, I bought a kaleidoscope lens attachment in the form of a Holga Filter Wheel, and like a girl gone wildling deep in the mountains of Southern Oregon, I photographed Taco, my lunch, playgrounds, houses, trees, flowers... and did I mention the trees? Well, you get my point --- this lens is so much fun that I ordered a jelly lens attachment for my iPhone, too. I just got it and I'm excited to try it out.Read More
I planned to write only about the Diana Premium Glass lens today. I ordered both the Diana glass and the Holga Filter Wheels from Amazon at the same time. The Diana glass lens arrived last Friday --- a day early, yay! The Holga wasn't scheduled to arrive until the end of October, but it arrived at the same time as the Diana. Between the two, I got to playing with the weird-looking Holga first. I shot with it all day Saturday, and although most of my pictures turned out shitty, I took a couple of shots that I liked and that was enough to keep me going. I disliked using the Holga lens during the first hour or so, but it grew on me as the day went on. The kaleidoscope filters are triiiippy. By mid afternoon, I was hungry and tired and walked home pretty cranky with burning hunger pangs, and I didn't get a chance to try out the Diana glass lens. Anyway, here are photos of my new toy lenses: the Diana Premium Glass and the Holga Filter Wheels.
