A little while back the friendly people at Rip Curl sent me their Lomography Fisheye camera to try out. The thing is pretty interesting with it’s 170-degree view of the world. So I took it around with me everywhere I went for a while and if the opportunity presented itself I would snap a photo. It was nice shooting film again, it’s been a while, and it is so much more rewarding when you have to go through a whole process just to produce the photo. You also learn to appreciate the imperfections of film when we now live in a digital world where photos come out perfect (in a sense) and we have to do post work to make it look imperfect. Anyway, here are some shots from my first roll I shot with the thing… with the Lomography Color Negative 400 35mm film. Now I know what my life would look like if I lived in a fish bowl.

If you wanna try one of for yourself you can buy them off of the Lomography site. More of my photos from the camera after the jump.

Maybe this video is old news… but I’m not gonna lie… it is hard for me to stay too current in the skate world. The things this kid does on a skateboard are pretty creative. Some people may hate it, others might love it. I’m just sharing it with you to judge for yourself.

It’s kinda funny that everything that was old…. is now new. Thanks to Bywater for calling out this video.

A few weeks ago my friend Andrew Arthur asked me to come up and help him with a photoshoot at Lake Arrowhead in Southern California. One of the models was FORD LA’s Mariana Saori Renteria, who happens to be Eddie Wall’s fiance. Eddie was there to document the day for his site Video Hyper Shred. Check out the video above. And below are two pictures I took of Saori with my Polaroid Land Camera.
