Now, fellow Canadians, British, and general folks, please don’t harp on me for mis-spelling ‘colour’ in the title, because it’s the proper brand name for the latest batch of film out of the amazing folks at the Impossible Project. ColorProtection is the latest emulsion in their ongoing quest to reinvent instant integral film. Well I’m going to say it, they have reinvented it, now it’s a matter of making what they have better and better. But what they have right now is pretty damned good. So what makes this film the best yet out the factory? Easy, anyone who has used this film from theRead More →

Finding myself back in Ohio I took a break from the long drive home to stop off in the city of Findlay, home of the university where we had a day earlier gone to a Polaroid Party. I had seen the downtown from the photos taken during the FPP mid-west meetup a meetup I sadly was unable to attend, so I made a point to stop off this time. Spent some time at Imagine That, and even ran into a friend and inspiration Mat Marash while enjoying lunch at a local pub. Nikon F4 – AF Nikkor 35mm 1:2D – Kodak Portra 160Read More →

Back to the Siege for Week 22. It’s always fun carrying around classic or strange cameras it always makes for an interesting conversation piece especially when I’m out and around using it. These shots are mostly from around the fort and camps not of actual battles since a TLR takes a bit of effort to use and battles happen fairly fast, event during a war of 1812 reenactment. But despite the rain and mud I still brought it along and ran some HP5 through it to give that nice classic look. The Saturday Morning Parade Breakfast!

May 5th 1813 the ground around Fort Meigs was mud, there was no way to keep our uniforms clean, but at least we kept our powder dry and muskets clean. Inside the wooden stockade walls that surrounded the fort we could make out giant traverses throughout the entire area. I caught word that an officers who had been returned after capture described the Americans as “an army of groundhogs” as they had dug holes into the traverses for shelter. Either way, those traverses will make it difficult for General Proctor to lay waste to the fort, and the mud won’t help either. The fort’s stockadeRead More →
