I had such an enjoyable time documenting Luke & Kaity’s wedding. It was evident of their love for each other! Their friends and family were so supportive of the two of them committing their lives together in marriage. Thank you Luke & Kaity for allowing me to be a part of your wedding day.
I’ve been making (creating) Polaroid Image Transfers for YEARS. Creating a transfer never gets old, it is fun every time. The idea of a Polaroid transfer is interrupting the process of a Polaroid peel apart image and transferring the image from the negative to another substrate. Through trial & error over the years, I’ve found that these steps below will give me successful transfers over and over. I like using a smoother substrate (watercolor paper) than one that is course, the image transfers much easier onto a smooth substrate. One of my first Polaroid Image Transfers.
I have an upcoming blog post explaining the Polaroid film (Type 88 / square) that I used to create this transfer.

On Tuesday, many missed out on the last Symphonic Band and Brass Choir concert for Professors Pagnard and DiCuirci at Cedarville as they presented their end of the semester concert. It was a great concert & fun to document an end of an era.
Yashica Electro 35 GT
I can’t believe the month of shooting with this rangefinder has come to an end. It was a fun month of shooting, easy, but fun since the GT is an aperture priority camera. I’m a big fan of shooting with minimum depth of field but typically with a 35mm SLR camera not a rangefinder. It was a little harder shooting (trusting my focus) at f/1.7 or f/2 with the Yashica rangefinder. I put 3 rolls of film through the GT this month, 36exp, 24exp & 32exp. The first roll was Arista EDU Ultra 400 36exp. The second roll was an old roll of Kodak 400 24exp and The last roll was bulk rolled Arista EDU Ultra 400, that’s why it was only 32 exposures.
The Yashica Electro 35 GT was released in 1969 with a full black body paint instead of the satin chrome finish like the other Yashica Electro 35’s in the series.
At the time of this post, I have not processed any of the film I shot. I will follow up with a selection of images from each of the 3 rolls.
As a reminder … #12cameras12months is the project I’m currently working on where I I’ve selected 12 cameras from my collection and I shoot with 1 camera every day for a month. I’ve not done so well with my reviews or follow ups … but I have been consistent in shooting every day with my cameras in the project. It has been fun & challenging … shooting with film is always fun! I’m super excited to announce the camera I’ll be shooting in April. April will be fun! Check my Instagram for the reveal!
Wednesday, day 5 we left the Grand Canyon and made several roadside stops. It was a long day of driving. I asked Sarah Maithel to give her thoughts & perspective of the day. Sarah is a 2012 CU geology graduate & current PhD student at Loma Linda University. She has been a part of this trip this week and has been an encouragement to the students.
“Our first stop in the morning was Lipan Point, which provided an awesome view of the Colorado River and geologic formations in the Grand Canyon. Here, we could clearly see formations at the base of the Canyon that were less visible from other overlooks. We identified various features, including the basement rock (at the bottom of the Canyon) and erosional surfaces/contacts between rock layers. Dr. Whitmore explained that while many of the layers in the Canyon were probably deposited during the Flood, some may have been formed or deposited during the creation week or in pre-Flood time.”
“Before leaving Grand Canyon, we stopped at Lipan Point and then Desert View Overlook and Watchtower. This gave us a great view of the Colorado River and allowed us to take a few last photos of the canyon before leaving the area.”
“We then left Grand Canyon and drove several hours to Holbrook, AZ, where we climbed into a wash to look at the Coconino Sandstone. I spoke to the class about my current PhD research on the sandstone. The students documented textures and measured the orientation of the cross-bedding (“strike and dip”). We then discussed how some of these cross-bed characteristics may allow us to interpret how the beds were deposited.”
“For our last stop of the day, we visited Petrified Forest National Park, where we saw many petrified (fossilized) trees scattered across the surface. We discussed what processes might have preserved and deposited the trees. The exceptional preservation of the trees probably suggests that they did not have a significant amount of time to decay before they were fossilized.”
On Thursday, day 6, we will drive from Flagstaff to Phoenix, to catch an afternoon flight back to Cedarville.
