GUILTY OF DOING WHAT YOU SAY











(some of my film work from New Orleans, more here)

I've been getting some emails from other photographers/aspiring/students lately, and it occurred to me that I might be able to offer something on here by sharing information about things that I have found really helpful. There's not much I can say that isn't more thoroughly expounded upon on other more technically-oriented websites, but one thing that has practically saved my ass when it comes to photo expenses is the lab I use to develop and scan my film. It's a tiny little Mom 'n Pop shop in Greenpoint, Brooklyn called Enla. They only do C-41, and your negs come back in a ziplock bag, but they do a really great job and are actually affordable. I get 64MB scans (about 15x15" @ 300 dpi) of my 6x6 120 film for around $12 a roll, including developing. Turnaround is usually 24 hours. That's half what I used to pay in Manhattan. So if you are still shooting film, this might be a real budget-saver for you.

MP3:

When two different DJs (one being me) think this is a good tune for their night's playlist, you know you've got a gem.

• Tom Waits - Hoist That Rag

A band's place in myspace.

    Most haunting Of Quiet work yet. Upping the game, yet again.

  6. Tod, can I borrow your eyes for a wkd? or how bout' just one eye? cause they're freakin great - just like these pics. I'm in awe of how you can turn ordinary landscapes into extraordinary lightscapes that make you think and look twice. Keep it up. Thx. for the inspiration.
