Getting back in the swing of things

Josh Harmon

I've realized it's been over six months since I've last posted. Simply put, life happens. These past six months have felt closer to six years to me. But I am posting now and I have made a summer goal to not only be more creatively active but to also reboot my social media and digital presence!

One big start to this is my recent purchase of a new (to me) 4x5 camera. Straight from Tokyo it is a Nagaoka Field Camera. Inspired by my bitter disappointment in my Gralfex light leak experience last fall I decided it was time to do things right and spend a bit more money. After setting a more appropriate budget and doing research I decided upon the Nagoaka because it is a field type camera (has plenty of movements), compact, looks nice, lightweight, and inexpensive. After a few days of scouring Ebay I pulled the trigger and bought one. To compliment the body I bought a Fujinon 125mm f/5.6 W lens with it. Its close what a ~35mm on full frame sees but with that great large format look. It's also a modern lens with a nice working shutter and clean glass. I'm very much excited to be shooting with this camera!

In addition to purchasing a new camera I've also been just getting out more. Every weekend in June I went to the beach at least once! And in each of those instances I shot some film of some type. My roommate was very generous and bought me a Fuji Instax camera which might be the most fun / big-per-buck of any camera I've ever used. I'm also filming misc. B-roll for a summer film too!

Anyway, I am about to head out to Tahoe for a few days more of adventure. I am making it a goal to post a blog post once a week now. Let's hope I can do that!
