Storm Sandlin - Portraits

My two cousins, Ben and Amelia have been writing together under the name Storm Sandlin for the last few years. Last year they released their first "Poe Inspired" collection of short stories and poems called, "A Chill in the Air". They have a really fun, quirky style that I think I can trace back to half Poe, half Burton inspired. At the same time, they have a sort of [...]

Filmonaut XXIII - Zenza Bronica on Ilford XP2 Super and Fuji 160 NS

I spent a lot of the early part of this year parting out a new Zenza Bronica ERTS. I purchased the film body, lens, film back, and view finder all separately. It took a while, but I ended up getting the whole thing put together for about 40% less than I would have spent if I had gotten one all in one piece. It's pretty heavy, but much more precise than the TLR I had b[...]

Film Panoramas: Ben Stiller's The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

The long promised panoramic stitches from The Secret Life of Walter Mitty are finally complete! This is my second foray into the Film Panorama world to share with you, the first was completed about 5 months ago. If this is your first time seeing this project, I dig into a little more detail on my first post on Wes Anderson's Hotel Chevalier The Secret Life of W[...]

Joie ~ Labor Day Weekend

This last weekend we finally got the chance to take Joie on a photoshoot! We've been wanting to do this for a while and we're so thankful that Grandma and Grandpa gifted us with an extended date. We ran a few errands and went out to lunch while they entertained the kids for us. And this happened: Each eye it cheers when she appears, Like Phoebus in the morn[...]

Film Panoramas: Wes Anderson's Hotel Chevalier

I'm so thrilled to share this next project with you! I've been working on a number of these for a while and finally surfaced enough to share my very first foray into the Film Panorama world with you: Hotel Chevalier. (p.s. Because these images are long panoramas, this post is best viewed on a desktop. If you're checking it out on mobile, turn your screen horizontally![...]

Creative Motherhood - A Guest Post by Joie

If you are a mother, you have already partnered with God to create something of real eternal significance. I can think of few things more inspiring and hopeful than the natural love of a mother for her child. And yet, many women avoid the opportunity, being aware that the weight of its responsibility may stamp out their other creative ambitions. Some women live out[...]

Macbeth Promo Shoot

It's been so thrilling to participate with Attic Theatre in this year's adaptation of Shakespeare's, "Macbeth". Let's just say... Crime doesn't pay. The story of a fallen war hero who gives in to his unsavory ambitions and sears his conscience with an initial act of treason results in a slippery slope of cover ups that eventually seal his fate at the hands of those wh[...]

Filmonaut XXII - McCormick's Creek - Ricoflex on Portra 400

The day after Beth and MJ were married at McCormick's Creek, the family stuck around to do some exploring of the grounds. One path lead to this great spot with cliffs and this miniature waterfall at the base of the creek. This also includes our trip down to Kentucky and some behind the scenes of a shoot we did at the IAHE conference. In hindsight, I think these ar[...]
