Crooked rain, fine grains. I’ve been taking advantage of these wet days as a chance to break in my new Nimslo 3D camera.
Film photography & gifs have a lot of common. Graininess, sure, they both have that in spades, but they’re also underdog formats. There are easier ways to capture a moment, and less bloated ways to make that moment move again, but these media just doesn’t know when to quit, and that’s why I find them so charming.
I was telling Allan about my transition from smartphones to film cameras, and my current obsession of mixing digital/analog together. He offered to let me share my year long 3D City project here on Mission Mission. Each week I’ll share some new work along with little bits of info on the camera and film I used (for the photo nerds out there). These shots are from a roll of Arista Premium (a Tri-X knockoff) on my Nishika N8000.
Every now and then, the now-LA-based but still SF-devoted photographer Joshua Cobos shoots a roll of film just for us. He picks the best 13 shots and we call it “Bad Blood with Joshua Cobos.” Here’s what Joshua has to say about this edition:
This roll is an example of the various types of shoots I’ve been on in the past month. The first photo is Ashley Pamela on her birthday off Melrose. Ashley Ording on a concept shoot at the Legion of Honor. Allyson Hillerby is a model / vintage lover I just met, she runs an online store / appointment only shop in the Mission. My pals near St. Francis Fountain on a recent trip to SF. Back in LA, I saw Michelle Guintu’s new art show off Santa Monica Blvd., at various times with various people wandered around Hollywood during our Winter Heatwave and worked with the twin brother punk band The Garden.
Thanks, Joshua! Ten more shots after the jump:
Doc Pop‘s first one was nothing but great shots of San Francisco. The second one is something completely different:
Today I’m proud to announce that the second issue of my American Analog zine is available online! To create this issue I set a goal of traveling to NYC and spending 3 solid days walking EVERYWHERE and capturing whatever I could. It was much more stressful than doing a “best of SF” type book, like my first issue, but the end result turned out great!
