Photo

I take a lot of pictures, and sometimes a lot of pictures per second and call it a video (or a “short film,” if I’m really fancy). There’s a lot to photograph, and it’s more interesting than words. You can find a lot of photos here, on 500px.

Here’s the gear I like to use:

Canon AE-1

It’s like 40 years old and is just hitting its stride. I usually use the cheapest film I can find. Most of the film is developed by me, and then scanned using a flatbed scanner. Consequently, it takes a very long time to go from exposure to finally seeing the photo, but I find it incredibly rewarding.

28mm f/2.8, 50mm f/1.7, and 100mm f/2.8 Canon lenses. I like using the 28mm the most.

Samsung Galaxy s7

This is my phone, and it’s also the easiest camera to carry with me, and I don’t have to develop any film, and it’s the easiest to get the pictures off of. Consequently, it is the camera I use the most. If it’s the camera you’re already holding, it’s the camera you’re using.

GoPro Hero 3 Silver

I’m not that extreme, so I don’t use a really extreme GoPro. I use this for underwater photography, timelapse setups in unfriendly environments, and anywhere I’m trying to get a shot where I can’t compose the scene anyways- just aim and pray. The fisheye can be annoying at times, but I the durability makes up for it.
