I've had a few people ask and yes I am shooting some digital right now. I've started teaching some solo workshops and it seemed like a good fit for being able to demonstrate finding light and metering. While I hope I never have to stop using film, it's been great to have this digital Leica to shoot and @philchesterpresets to edit with. This was the m-p with the 50 summilux and PC-02 preset.

@ayawolf.k came from πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡Έ to πŸ‡³πŸ‡± to model for my workshops. I love spending time with friends in cities other than our own.

a photo from my shooting demonstration at the workshop yesterday. shooting with a crowd is very unfamiliar for me, so I gave up on intimate setting and direction and tried to make something expressive with motion instead.

Day one of my Amsterdam workshop is complete. Completely exhausted and so grateful to a group of strangers for being so kind. Myself and my work are a mess. I know it. My best effort it to be honest about it. Thanks for letting that be enough.

The kindness and graciousness of the people that show up to my workshops is amazing. Already so much calmer a few hours into the get to know you drinks. Grateful to have the opportunity to connect with old friends and make new ones in Amsterdam this week.

this sickness isn't me
I pray to fall from grace
the last thing I see is feeling
I'm telling you I'm a fake

child + sketchbook + some dude

I think my social media post that went the most hilariously wrong was similar in theme. I went to a kindergarten and posted a picture of the art wall with the caption: "I don't understand why kids even try at art. They are obviously terrible". I thought based on all my other posts the sarcasm would be obvious, but it was not, and people lost their minds...
So let me try again. I caught a glimpse of this girls drawing of SeΓ±or Vincent and it was pure crap compared to the version he made himself. If she isn't going to do better than he already did, I really don't understand why she bothered...

This post with this edit was recently reported and removed. I sincerely tried to abide by the sharing guidelines even though I think they are sexist and awful. The caption was one I put a lot of thought and effort into writing and the responses were many and beautiful. Now I can never read those messages of love and support again because of a not-even-visible nipple. It's just another reminder for me that this shouldn't be my primary venue for sharing my images and words. I'll let you know when my Patreon account is ready. I'm on the road but the need for another online venue to share feels pressing. As always thank you so much for the all love.

Made it to Amsterdam where I'm wearing the national flag upside down on my head. Everyone thinks I'm a confused super-fan. I might be.
