VSU Blazin' Brigade - First Home Game of the 2015 Season

I shot several rolls of film at the football game this past Saturday. I always enjoy shooting some film at the games.

I took two cameras - my Fujica 690 with 105mm f/3.5 lens, and a Crown Graphic 2x3 camera with a 38mm f/5.6 XL lens on it. On the Crown, I used some adapters to put a roll of 35mm film into my 6x7 220 back, giving me a panoramic format.

Here are the photos I took:

Vickery Creek Trail and Dam in Roswell, GA

I made a very short business trip to the northern Atlanta suburbs this weekend, and while I was only up there for about 24 hours, I still was able to squeeze in about 3 hours at the Vickery Creek Trail.

This area was quite beautiful and it was an enjoyable time hiking in the wilderness. At the end of the trail was a dam and the remains of two mills.

I took a variety of photos on 4x5, using mostly my 58mm and 90mm lenses (and one with a 300mm):


 I also took a few shots with Portra 160 film:

 That's it for my outing. I had a ton of fun and I would love to explore this area further!

Wandering with the 6x17

Last weekend I went out driving around the back roads of south GA.

One of the places I knew I wanted to go was this field with an old plane in it:

I also shot this in a corn field:

It started getting cloudy so I made my way to the back entrance of Reed Bingham. I was walking along the Little River when it just started pouring down rain. I shot a few photos during the rain:

I was soaking wet so I went home.

Here's a video from the outing though:

St. Mark's - Shooting Wildlife

It's Labor Day weekend and I didn't have to work, so I went to St. Mark's yesterday. There have been Roseate Spoonbills there for the past few days so I was hoping to see them, but sadly I missed them (they were sighted about an hour before I got there, but disappeared).

The day was hot, humid, and hazy, and the yellow flies near the Lighthouse were awful. I still grabbed a few shots but overall it wasn't the best day. Oh well, that's life.

Here's a few shots, all taken with my Nikon F5 and 300mm f/2.8 or 500mm f/5.6 (a Pentax 67 lens adapted to the Nikon):


I also had my GoPro attached to the hot-shoe of the F5. I shot some video while shooting which was kind of cool, with the lens jutting out in front:
