I shot a roll of film at this year’s Hopscotch Music Festival with my new (to me) Leica M3 and Summicron 5cm/2 lens. Tri-X (duh) 400 rated at 1600, souped in D-76. 

Bands represented: See Gulls, Chris Stamey, The Backsliders, Little Black Egg Big Band (which looks a lot like Yo La Tengo :) ), and Pipe.

It’s ironic that longgrainrice moved away, yet I’ve shot her more than anyone in the time since she left.

Leica M3 Dual Stroke with DR Summicron 5cm/2
I’ve sold off my Nikon DSLR gear (well, a good chunk of it, still a few things to go). Going completely Fuji X mirrorless for my digital work. With some of the proceeds from the Nikon gear, I’ve added this to my bag. 
Hoping that spending this much on a film camera will get me to start shooting a lot more film.

Finally, finally got to shoot a model with my new Leica M3, and it happened to be one of my favorites to work with, the lovely and funny Jenn Ryan. 
I think I’ve finally got my developing and scanning down. Ready to start doing a lot more film.

Hello World

sonnysixteen:

I keep seeing a lot of great content on tumblr, content so good that I’d like to share it, but I don’t want to clog up my original content blogs to do that. 

So, hello world. I’m adding “Sonny Sixteen”, a place to share stuff that I see on my dashboard that catches my eye. And I mean really catches my eye. I see a lot of very good content. I click the heart button a good deal. But I’ll only be sharing a small subset of that. 

I want to be social on social media, but I also didn’t want my original content blogs becoming overwhelmed with content that I didn’t create, so I’ve created this one just for sharing. 

Because sharing is caring.

Film scan by Rodney Boles 

New rule: I have GOT to start shooting more film. (Shot 2 polaroid packs today and a roll of 120, so I’m back in the game at least).
