Words To Shoot By :: Askew

Not sure about you … but sometimes, it’s really easy for me to be sucked into an internet wormhole. One minute, I’m checking my bank account, then the next thing I knew, it’s 2 hours later, and I’m lost in the work of an amazing creative. Last fall, before moving to Portland, we discovered Words To Shoot By via that same wormhole phenomenon. WTSB is a collaborative of photographers & artists who come together a few times a month to contribute photos. These photos are their own interpretation of a word that Steph, the lovely curator, sends out.

Once we were settled in Portland, we got in touch with Steph, and it was just our luck: she was starting WTSB up again after a short hiatus, and looking for new contributors … the timing was perfect. This is our first time contributing, and we are so excited to get to know the other amazing artists we’re so lucky to be sharing a space with. Be sure to head over to see this week’s post: Askew.




The Incredible Holg :: January

Yes, we named our Holga. In case you don’t know … a Holga is a toy camera of sorts. They are made without strict quality control, meaning there are often light leaks and blur & vignetting on the photos. It’s all part of the fun … It’s an experiment. It’s a challenge to shoot without a focus ring that you can see, no meter & it’s film, so you have no idea what you’re getting until you have the film developed.

Here’s a bit of The Incredible Holg’s action from January. All of these were taken by Jimmy … he’s pretty amazing with film.

Loving this double exposure … It’s dreamy!
