Utah Adventuring

A few shots from last weeks adventure out in Marysvale UT. We climbed over 7,000 feet to the top of snow capped mountains in early October. There was nearly a 50 degree swing in temperature from our starting point.

Rise & Drive: Chicago

Mouse Motors put on their second Rise & Drive event this summer. The weather lent itself to a great turn out. Some of the highlights were the ultra rare twin turbo, all wheel drive Porsche 959S and the Chevy powered L&M Lola Can-Am car. 

If you're in the Chicago land area, make sure to check out the next even Sunday, September 14th.

Polaroid SX-70 OneStep

I usually pass on any Polaroids sitting on the shelf at my local thrift store due to the added cost of the specialized film. This one had caught my eye though. Maybe it was the packaging, but I decided to splurge and drop $5.

The SX-70 "OneStep" was the Easy Bake equivalent to the full featured SX-70. Both aperture and focus are fixed. The only adjust-ability is an exposure compensation dial on the front.

Polaroid hassince discontinued the film, but a company called The Impossible is offering an aftermarket option with great reviews.  Some people have taken to modifying 600 series film to be used in the OneStep with good results.

This camera will more than likely become a neat looking shelf piece in my collection.

Assisting on location: Hobie Kayak

Last week I had a great opportunity to assist on location with photographer Scott Bell and competitive Hobie Kayak fisherman Colin Belle. We worked with some early morning light to capture some natural light shots with a bit of fill from a strobe.

We wrapped up with some composite shots that were finished by Al Lapkovsky of Begemotfoto, the mood and feel of them came out great.
