Happy World Photography Day!
August 19 marks the day the first photographic process, Daguerreotype, was release from its patent for the public to use 175 years ago. So go out and snap some pictures to celebrate!
Hey there! Inspos is back to get your creative juices flowing! This week I’ve been inspired to relaunch the Bloggins Shop since it was closed for so long while I was on vacation. That’s all thanks to the inspiring interviews with the curators of the Dime Store Emporium and Three Potato Four.
Recently, I took a trip to Urban Outfitters to window shop and I left feeling inspired to make some of the things they had in their shop, from the merchandise to the displays. A couple of the DIY inspirations can be found here and here. I have also been inspired to make a mid-century modern style table, like this one, thanks to A Beautiful Mess (which is never not inspirational!)
Finally, the work of Kinsey of Sincerely, Kinsey has always inspired me to travel and capture it all on camera, especially these “HWY 1” photos. Great stuff.
Photoset Friday: Waikiki in Polaroids
It’s been about two weeks since I got back from Waikiki and I’m already missing it. At least I have these Polaroids to remind me how beautiful Waikiki is.
These were taken with a Polaroid sx-70 Sonar OneStep with the Impossible Project’s film for sx-70 cameras.
Photoset Friday: Garfield Park Conservatory
Recently, I took a trip to the Garfield Park Conservatory with my buddy andalilo and my Pentax Spotmatic locked and loaded with lomographicsociety's Xpro Slide Film. This was actually my first time using the Spotmatic, and I decided to mess around with a 50mm f/1.4 lens and a Spiralite Proxivar close-up attachment. I think the results are great. I can't wait to shoot more film with the Spotmatic.
