Weekly Photo Project, Week 48

Unsurprisingly, this week had a few photographically productive days and a few that weren’t. That’s been a common theme of this project, and if there’s one thing that I’d like to further work on regarding all this is ensuring that each day is productive. That’s not an easy task because life pulls in so many different directions all at once. I think finding and taking advantage of the small moments tucked among all of the distractions and responsibilities is an opportunity to succeed at this, but it will take being more diligent and deliberate.

Week 47   

Weekly Photo Project, Week 47

As you can see, I’m pretty far behind getting these Weekly Photo Project posts out. I’m actually nearing completion of the project, as I have five more weeks after the one that these pictures represent. Two of those weeks have already happened, and the third will be finished tomorrow. That means, in reality, there are only two weeks left, which is just really difficult for me to imagine, yet I’m quite anxious for this to be done. The first two pictures below are textured pictures using the double-exposure feature of my Fujifilm X-T30. I included the third picture in my Diversity of Utah Landscapes article, so you’ve probably seen it before. The final four pictures are ones that I’ve yet to share.

Weekly Photo Project, Week 46

If this week had a theme it would be red, as I used my Redscale film simulation recipe extensively. The last day is the only one that’s not Redscale, which is the only picture in this series that hasn’t already been shared on this blog.

I’m really looking forward to this photo-a-day project to reach its conclusion. It’s pretty close to being finished, as I’m on the home stretch. Six weeks to go, but really a week-and-a-half of that has already happened, I just haven’t posted the pictures yet, so in about a month I’ll be all done. It’s been a great experience, but I have other projects that I’ve placed on hold because of it, and I look forward to pursuing those.

In this week you’ll see examples of four of my recent film simulation recipes: Fujicolor Industrial, Faded Color, Faded Monochrome and Redscale. As you can imagine, it was a very productive week for film simulation creation. A few of the days were particularly photographically productive, too. Perhaps more importantly, I had a number of fun adventures. Even though you’ve seen these pictures before, I hope that you will still find this set enjoyable.

I must apologize because you’ve likely already seen most of these pictures before. The first three photographs were captured using my “Expired Eterna” recipe and the last two were captured using my “Fujicolor 100 Industrial” recipe, and the pictures were included in those articles. Even so, I hope that you appreciate this set.

Weekly Photo Project, Week 43

I immensely enjoyed attaching a vintage Asahi-Pentax Auto-Takumar 55mm f/2.2 lens to my Fujifilm X-T30 during this week. It’s easy to forget that it’s such a great lens, even though it’s older than I am. It pairs especially well with the two film simulation recipes that I created during these days: Ilford HP5 Plus 400 Push-Process and Expired Eterna. The combination of film simulation recipes that produce an analog aesthetic and vintage glass can be a magical experience.

Weekly Photo Project, Week 41

Another week of pictures complete! There were a few days where I only made a couple of exposures. As summer approaches, it seems that my schedule has become more full, and squeezing in photography has become more difficult. Thankfully, the hill behind the house has given me a good show, transforming from a snow-capped winter mountain to a grand green grade, sometimes with dramatic clouds. Still, my attempt on Thursday was less than stellar, and I only captured a couple of uninspiring images. Coming down the home stretch of this project, I need to focus my energy on ensuring that I’m actually making a good picture each day, and not lazy attempts just to have something to show.

I’m officially three-fourths done with this photo-a-day project. Yea! It’s very difficult to believe that in only 13 more weeks I will have completed a year of daily pictures. It’s been a good experience with ups and downs, but mostly ups. I do look forward to seeing this project’s completion, as I have some other tasks that I’m anxious to start. I’m holding off on those other personal projects until this one is complete, or else I might not make it to week 52.

Another week of black-and-white pictures! I captured a lot of color images this week, too, but I stuck with monochrome for this post. They’re mostly mountain pictures. The first five were captured from my yard. The last picture is the one that doesn’t match, but it was the best black-and-white image from that day, so that’s why it’s included with this set.
