If you follow me on Instagram you probably have seen these photos I took at Yosemite National Park. I wanted to compile the photos in this post. I typically don't shoot black and white for landscapes, but I was so inspired by Ansel Adams prior to this trip that I wanted to give it a go. First off, Yosemite is amazing! All I wanted to do was shoot while I was there. Here are some photos I made using my Mamiya 7 with Kodak Tri-X 400.
Here are more photos from my travels to France earlier this year. These were taken in Chamonix and Aiguille du Midi in the French Alps. I attempted to document our trek up to the top of the Aiguille du Midi which was Arlene's take off point for paragliding back to the base of the valley - crazy!
These were made with a Mamiya 7 using Kodak Portra 400 and processed by The FIND Lab.
Time to mix it up - I'm finally posting some photos from my travels to France back in October. In preparing for this trip, one of the hardest decisions for me was choosing the right camera to bring. For most of the year I've been shooting mainly with my Mamiya 645 AFD - I knew that wasn't an option for me since I wanted something light weight and less bulky. So, I decided on a rangefinder, the Mamiya 7. Not sure this was the best decision at the time, since I wasn't quite comfortable shooting with a rangefinder. Plus the Mamiya 7 didn't allow me to get up close to my subjects like the 645. The Mamiya 7 in a way forced me to shoot differently and got me out of my comfort zone. Anyway, enough chatter...check out the photos below.
