Something Wicked This Way Comes.

This is not part of the project that’s starting TOMORROW, but it’s an outtake from one of the images.

Join me and a group of my buddies in looking at our summer project: The Steam Effect

The Closeup.

I recently scored an iPhone 3G from eBay. Since they only run on AT&T’s and T-Mobile’s networks, my intent was just to use it to take pictures and maybe shoot the odd video from time to time. This was a brilliant plan, as the new iPhone 4 had just come out and I figured an iPhone 3 would be cheap.

The hitch came right after I won the auction and realized that I wasn’t buying a “jailbroken” phone, but a *broken* phone. It didn’t work well. The listing said my new acquisition came without a battery and without cables. It wasn’t as bad as they’d made it seem when it finally arrived at my house, but the device was definitely not functioning correctly.

I sent it to my friend, J.P. in Seattle. He does a lot of things, but notably, he runs a business repairing Apple products. It’s called My Mac Hero. He fixed it and had it back to me in like 3 days. He’s brilliant. (and here on twitter)

I trust J.P. ’cause he’s the one who got me mixed up in all this Mac business in the first place. If it weren’t for him, I wouldn’t have bought the used Blueberry iMac that was my introduction to the Mac world.

Anyway, I’ve been playing around with it (you may have noticed) and several post processing applications -the iPhones are absolutely rife with choices – and shot this of a buddy wearing an old WWII French gas mask.

Better Luck Next Time.

I shot these on film I’d never used before: Ilford XP-2. It’s C-41 process black and white film, which means that it’s processed in the same chemistry as regular color film, which is different from ordinary black and white chemistries.

The problem with using new films generally is that I have no idea where the “sweet spot” for the exposure is. I mean, I can judge using the film’s rating, but there’s often more nuance to it than that. The roll I got back is pretty strong evidence.

The Revolution Will Not Be Televised.

But I’m thinkin’ it’ll be a good idea to get some of the stuff that’ll help you make your way through. I mean, how many post-apocalyptic video games feature at least one character wearing one of these? Bonus points to whomever comes up with the longest list.

An interesting note: The letters on his fingers read “gain” and on his left, “loss.” I completely forgot to shoot both sides with the Polaroids. The film is forthcoming.
