Travelwide 4x5 camera

I was so excited to see this new project started by some friends of friends, a portable 4x5 camera- yes! It's called a Travelwide and is currently on Kickstarter. The project has been funded but I encourage you to go check it out and secure a camera for yourself. There's really no comparison when it comes to the quality and beauty of large format photography. Ben Syverson anJustin Lundquist have created a lightweight, portable 4x5 camera that is easy to travel with. I am so excited to try this out! I also love being able to support my peers in their creative endeavors. Here's a little video about it.

Travel photos pt.1

I'm getting caught up with scanning and editing film from last year. I took this film to get processed in the fall and then had a baby and totally forgot about it-oops! Luckily it was still there when I went to pick it up. Here are some photos from our trip to California!





These are from the Calavaras Big Trees state park we went to. I wish I could import the smell of the air there to Chicago!



Here are a couple from Chinatown in San Francisco where we had one of our "babymoons"
