Should I write something here? Do you care?
I take pictures sometimes. Mostly with film loaded into various cameras. I put them here because I'm too lazy for a real blog.

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.

Inspired by a pinhole workshop taught by Justin Quinnell, Matt Bigwood made these 6-month-long exposures using a beer can pinhole camera.

You can see his setup above which entailed placing 5”x7” photo paper inside the can and taping it to a pole with gaffer tape. 

The curve you see is the sun’s path across the sky as distorted by the curve of the can. 

Six-Month Long Exposures Made with a Beer Can

Might as well just come out and say it…

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!
