Jay Tayag  Learning about how to use this 4x5 camera of mine and enjoying the ride.


One of the shots from the studio shoot I recently did at @billyclower Their recital was this past weekend and it was a wonderful show.

Setting up the studio for the Billy Clower photo shoot.

So I went gray on this year's background. It's been fun as always shooting the dancers this weekend. But I'm feeling it right now. 😣

Test shot.

Dance shoot this weekend. 🙂📸

So the film from Carrizo Plain came in. It was the first time I traveled with film. I still brought my digital setup as a backup and to shoot the things I couldn't with the 4x5. With all the "restrictions" that film puts on you, it didn't feel that way at all when shooting. I was able to look around more. To be more of a witness to the scene unfolding in front of me rather than being separated from it through a viewfinder.

I took this at Pismo beach a few weeks back on Kodak Ektar 100. As usual, I was being impatient and shot too early for the Velvia shots to turn out. 😐still learning.

Which do you like better...
Color or black and white?

It looks like the color run exploded here.

I try and remember to take these iPhone shots of where I was shooting as a reminder of what I was doing and to provide a gps location of where I was.

I managed to come back to Carrizo Plain on a short solo photography trip. This is a pretty cool location as there is plenty of space to escape the crowds and it is a pretty short distance from where I live. I bought along my digital as well as my 4x5 gear. Will be posting the digital images while I'm waiting for the film to come back. Learning a lot about my 4x5 gear.
