APRIL 23, 2022 // MADISON

This Saturday was so warm and beautiful, the whole town got the message and everybody was strolling up and down State Street. Isn’t it wonderful how warmer temperatures just pull us out of the house and embolden us to make fun fashion choices?

This series was taken with my brand new to me Pentax67, and that thing is big and heavy, but I’m going to have to keep taking it on my walks, because the images are glorious! The camera was loaded with that brand new Kodak Gold 200 in 120, and I rated it at ISO100, but I also metered very loosely, so don’t take my word for it.

I also have a lovely family portrait I promised not to share, and it hurts me a little because I love that image and I want to show everyone, but I gave my word. Anyways, I’m still waiting for the family to get in touch with me, I’ll be happy to send it to them, and I hope they’ll love it as much as I do. This is becoming my way to allow underrepresented folks to have access to photography and to see themselves in a beautiful way.

Here’s also a few images I got with the Olympus Mju on Kodak Ultramax400 when I ran out of film – yes, I took an extra camera, but not an extra roll of 120 film for the Pentax, who am I even?
