Dave Eggers Gallery Opening at Electric Works

Here’s a shot from Dave’s opening at Electric Works in San Francisco on July 16, 2010. It appears that the couple in the shot read Dave’s drawing on the wall as directed at them.

Ducking the kick

Here’s another shot from Boone’s Capoeira party. I used Sloppy Borders from Kubota to add the border. Is it too cheesy, too fake looking?

He looked to the sky and waited

Here’s a photo of Anupam from Boone’s Capoeira party last weekend. He had just launched a soccer ball into the air and was watching it, waiting for it to descend.

Waiting for the Bus

I had the opportunity to shoot a few rolls with a Leica M7 last week, and absolutely loved the experience of shooting film. At the risk of sounding trite, it made me more considerate of the images I was taking and more patient in the process of taking them. The time and cost of getting from film to prints or digital images was another story. However, once I saw the prints, I was bowled over. The texture, contrast, and color of Kodak’s Portra line of film is just outstanding. There’s something very cinematic about the prints, that I don’t recognize in digital images.
