Color

I don't shoot much color film these days, in fact, never really have done much with color. It's mostly because I love B&W, but also has something to do with the fact that I've never been very good with color film. Despite that, I put some color into one of the Leica's recently and found that the color images worked much better for what I was doing that particular day.

This is one of the images. Shot on Kodak Portra 400 (the new stuff), it's gotten me thinking about what I'm going to do for Uruguay next year. Actually, a lot of the shooting I'm doing now is to tweak my process to make sure I've got all the technical stuff covered for the trip. So I'm experimenting a lot right now with different cameras, lenses, film and process. It's been quite fun for me to get out with nothing in my head and just shoot. Keepers are far fewer but I'm honing my skills sufficiently to make sure there are less mistakes.

Regular readers - thank you by the way - may have noticed a few changes to the website. Gone is the Photo Blog. I just felt is was redundant so, you'll find entries that I would have included there now under the Sketchbook. The Gallery will be seeing changes as well with completed, or close to complete, bodies of work instead of the scattering that exists today. I'm hopeful this happens over the next few weeks. Let me know if you have any comments to the changes, and as always, comments on the work are always appreciated.
