Portland

Posted by Scott

Capture
In Portland right now and of course didn’t bring my camera again.  This place is always great; we hung out in one of my favorite spots today, the Pearl District. It’s a great little neighborhood which really reminds me of Midtown Sacramento and Wicker Park in Chicago. I’ve got my friend’s little point and shoot so I will try and snag some shots here and there. Trying to figure out where to go tomorrow night, heard good things about hollocene, any suggestions?

Dusty Brown Elliott Smith Tribute

Posted by Scott

Elliott_Smith-Figure_8-Frontal33547238_6a0267c24celliott My friend and yours, Dusty Brown, recently covered Elliott Smith’s "Can’t Make a Sound" for a tribute album and it turned out incredible, dare I say, better than the original. You be the judge, have a listen below.

Available on the album Hope You’re Happy

Incidentally, the last two images above are of the wall in Los Angeles that was used by photographer Autumn de Wilde as the backdrop for the Figure 8 album cover. Since Smith’s death it has become a sort of memorial for fans.

Wicker Park

Wicker Park is a neighborhood in Chicago something akin to Williamsburg in Brooklyn or Midtown Sacramento. I stayed there the last time I was in Chicago and really enjoyed the area, lot’s of great restaurants, bars and clubs. A great electronic venue, Sonotheque calls Wicker Park home along with my new favorite, Rodan.  We ended up there last night, great atmosphere / people / music.

Please excuse the watermarked image, I found it on google and really liked it. I decided against bringing my camera on this trip just to keep the rig to a manageable size. But I did find some interesting shots of the Wicker Park neighborhood here.

Have start getting ready for tonight, see you all out at the MOMI.

Holga Mods

This post is from my friend Forrest who does a lot of lofi photography stuff. On top is his modified Holga and the bottom is a shot taken with it. I love how the exposure extends all the way to the edges.

"We all know the Holga can create some amazing 6×6 images, but did you know it can also use 35mm film? With a bit of ingenuity, foam, and tape, a Holga can be outfitted with 35mm film to create some spectacular photos. After developing, you can scan your negatives to catch the full effect of the Holga 35mm frame."

The Lomography site has a page about the Holga 35mm mod process which can be found here.
