an anamorphic christmas..

so i had been messing around with the panasonic anamorphic adapter for a while, but it was really soft and hard to work with and doesn't produce the oval OOF areas which are one of the greatest things about anamorphic photography. since the iscorama lenses are now selling instantly for thousands of dollars and i wanted to get a handheld rig and rod adapter anyway, i decided to buy up an old (1973, for maximum artifacty weirdness) lomo square front and the Hot Rod PL adapter.

be sure to turn on the HD!

east coast road trip. Krista's photos. part 2.

My last batch of photos from our trip out East in August. It ended with 4 great days in PEI. The weather was amazing: lots of sun, lots of swimming, lots of jellyfish. It was sad to leave but nothing was sadder then our car breaking down in a little place called Cabano, Quebec. I kept myself entertained by documenting this stretch of the trip but really I just couldn't wait to get home, (despite the chain-smoking, electric-bike riding shirtless French man we befriended). It was a long and exhausting trip home and our little apartment met us with open arms.

Shot on Kodak Portra 160 NC with Nikon primes.


A very long 24 hours in CABANO, QUEBEC.

So summer has left us which is sad. Gather supplies. Prepare for hibernation. Pens, paper, film, hot chocolate, people you love, etc. Shut out the world and make something. You know? Good winter. ...Good winter.

east coast road trip. Krista's photos. part 1.

Film is best. Shot on Kodak Portra 160 VC & NC with Nikon primes.

We had a short stopover in MONTREAL full of amazing pizza & fireworks. We also accidentally happened upon this tiny (and treacherous) skatepark.

CAPE BRETON, NOVA SCOTIA is an amazing place.
All should go there.

Sandy beaches and sunny days in PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND.

More from Ryan and I to come...soon.
