First, I want to take a moment and thank everyone for the positive response to my last two video posts. I’m really looking forward to making more movies for the blog, and even have a couple ideas underway.

And now, my adventures in film continue. I haven’t slowed down with the film at all lately, it’s getting a little ridiculous! Like I’m >this< close to starting a new blog altogether to chronicle this journey. But, that would just be silly, so here we go: two shots from a visit to Redding last fall.

There aren’t many things I dislike about living in Portland, but of the few that exist, not having access to a lush, private yard is one of them. Whenever we’re in town I try to take advantage of Chris’s mom’s property, which has had a lot of hard work put into it over the years. It’s the perfect background for portraits and though I never think of it at the time, whenever I get film back I always marvel at the way the bokeh pushes through the fence at sundown.

Um, you could probably guess the reason behind this post’s title… :)

Camera: Rolleiflex 2.8C
Film: Kodak Portra 400VC
Scanned from negatives developed by Blue Moon Camera & Machine

I read that as crotch fire. Flare fits better ;)

what is that bright stuff in the sky? :)

Filmy yumminess.

HA. Is it inappropriate to suggest his groin has superpowers? There’s like laser action going on there.

I did the same thing, I was like, "Aww what a nice photo!……BAHAHAHA"

Aahaha! Like Alice, I wouldn’t have noticed it without the title. But awesome!

That lighting is ridic, btw.

I was like, cool photo. Then I saw the title and laughed. Double good.

Omgomgomgomgthatphotoissoamazing! Chris looks unreal! Like an angel or something! UNBELIEVABLE.

Heh. I like it. :) I’ve got a roll of Portra in my dad’s old Nikon, been bringing it out every so often and I can’t wait to get it developed! I can totally see why you’d love to shoot in that yard – so gorgeous!

LOL i actually wouldn’t have noticed if you hadn’t pointed it out. (the crotchflare, that is)

hahahah great light though.
