Last blues of summer by Jana Uyeda

I haven't had a chance to get out and shoot much these past few weeks and the weather has turned quickly. The fury of Fall season is upon us in Seattle, with booming thunderstorms and sheets of rain. Days are bit greyer out and colors pop a bit less. More noticeably, the blue skies of summer are seen less and less. Here's a shot from my Holga 120PAN at the Nisqually Wildlife Refuge.

Those shades of blue by Jana Uyeda

I finally got organized enough to send a box of Kodak Ektar 4x5 sheets to Citizen's Photo in Portland and was rewarded with a very quick turnaround and some lovely new images. Here is one of the first scans I made of the blue, blue skies at Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge just south of Seattle. I timed my visit so I could experience the walkways during high tide and the trip did not disappoint. The entire area was covered in 12-13 inches of water, amazing. We're so lucky in the PNW to have both the mountains and the sea to provide us with these sights.

Success! IR Pinhole Improvement by Jana Uyeda

Barn at Nisqually Wildlife RefugeIf you've been following my blog then you've probably wondered - where the heck did she go?

Apologies. I'm doing my best to get back on track. Here's an IR pinhole sheet from my trip to the Nisqually Wildlife Refuge a few weeks ago. My first few sheets were awful and plagued with sun flares. This is much better.

Mahalo!

Quick post: Through the Hoh Rainforest with IR film by Jana Uyeda

I just returned from a wonderful long weekend spent in Olympic National Park. Specifically, in the Hoh Rainforest, walking through the Hall of Mosses and following the Hoh River. I have several rolls for Panda Labs to develop and at least 15 sheets of 4x5 Ektar to be sent to Citizen's Photo in Portland. Here are the first few sheets which I developed tonight and a video I captured while walking through the forest. It was a very successful, productive and relaxing trip.

How was your Memorial Day weekend?
