American Analog: my new Kickstarter zine project

I’ve just launched my very first Kickstarter project, a fundraiser for the first two issues of a new black and white photo zine called American Analog. Readers of this blog already know of my interest in my interest of film, but may not know about my old obsession with zines and self publishing.

As a kid in a small southern town, pre-internet, zines were my favorite way to learn about what other folks were making. It started mostly with music zines, but I soon fell in love with the personal style and personal expression that was coming out of zines like Roller Derby and Cool Beans.

When I first started shooting on 35mm, a lot of that interest came rushing back. Holding a freshly developed roll of Tri-X reminded of the feeling of getting a new zine in the mail from the Hamburger Eyes crew. I decided almost a year ago that my goal would be to put out my own photo zine… so here it is.

I’m hoping to do more with this project, but for now I’m just focusing on those first two issues and the release party at Lomography SF in late March.

 

The Mobile Masters Session

Scraps of bread and code

Macworld in SF officially starts on Thursday, but this year there will be a special one day only “Mobile Masters” session, featuring talks and workshops by several fantastic iPhone photographers. This special event starts early tomorrow morning, January 30th, with a talk by Jack Hollingsworth and ends tomorrow night with a meet and greet featuring myself and other Bay Area photographers.

Tickets appear to still be available, get yours here. I’ll be spending the full day hanging out at Moscone and catching the talks. Feel free to hit me up if you are around.

 

American Analog: Hawaii Two-0

Double Snap

Finally picked up some rolls of film from our Hawaii “workation”. My favorite shots are some of the underwater scenes that I caught with my LC-Wide and some 800 ISO Lomo film. I’m super glad I broke down and bought the Krab underwater case that fits all the LC-A models. This batch of half-frame advance shots with a little bit of double exposure is my favorite from Maui.
