First photo from my One camera/one lens/one year project.
Shooting one frame everyday with the first camera kit I bought as a teenager… The Yashica Fx-3 Super 200 with the 50mm kit lens.
Throughout my work life I have always been the one to leave jobs. It has always been my choice to seek out something different - I’ve been the one to make the choice to move on.
Not this time.
This time I’ve been asked to leave. Not quite so bluntly as “you’re fired,” but just as effective.
My time with Photosmith\OldSchoolPhotoLab.com\120processing is coming to an end. The reasons are primarily financial and we’re just going to leave it at that.
For those of you who know me on a more personal level I will still be active on Twitter (and yes, Tumblr), but not in a professional sense. Photography will be taking a back burner for a little while until I get back settled again.
I don’t really feel like going into the details right now, but the lab will still be around to serve you - I just won’t be a part of it. It’s been a joy getting to know everyone and some of the connections I’ve made will hopefully remain for a good long time.
jaschiero asked: For the Photos part, to avoid the double clicking, go into edit your page, find the page for "my photos" and set the url to jakebphoto. tumblr. com/tagged/myphotos (should just need to add "tagged/myphotos", and you can do that for any tagging you use.
I could have sworn I tried that originally… Hrm… Thanks!
…the kind of pandora’s box of information he’s opening.
An email from a potential customer today:
”First off, I’ve got a couple questions that I’m hoping you can help me with. I have been shooting digital for at least five years, and my film camera is long gone (an old Nikon 35-mm that I had in high school and college). My questions:
2) I am interested in being able to shoot nature shots, as an example: close-ups of flowers, grass, water, and then be able to enlarge them to approximately 4 feet wide. What camera details do I need to look at to achieve this? What Lens mm is ideal?”
