latest fun

i have hundreds of frames and sheets of film exposed from years of photographing out the car window.
i really enjoy the movement and effect of a slow shutter speed, how what is farther away from the shutter is more static
and what is close is a streak of color or hue like a brush stroke.


all the film was 35mm film, stand processed ( no agitation ) using a coffee based developer and a few oz of ansco 130.
the film was scanned, and minimal photoshop editing was done.  i barely adjust contrast and levels.  i did cut and paste though.


lately i have started to make patterns with some of my scanned negatives.  i could easily do this in the darkroom
it is just a matter of masking off the paper, flipping the negative and exposing the paper a second or third &c time.
it is fun and easy to do in photoshop too.




a lot of the images you find here on my blog are available on



i often give a percentage of the proftits from every sale to charity.

I am a Freelance Photographer in Rhode Island. I make photographs using a variety of methods with and without a camera, and I teach photography online and in person. I make photo emulsions from scratch, I coat my own photo paper and make cyanotypes too. I am a huge fan of Caffenol ( I helped write the Caffenol Cookbook ) and instead of instant coffee, I roast my own Sumatra Robusta beans. I sell them so you can make your own long lasting, film and print developer called Sumatranol. I also sell silver recovery products.
