Earlier this year I finally got my 1954 Rolleiflex Automat repaired. It’s been a vintage paperweight since 2012 when the camera strap failed in a rainstorm and fell onto the sidewalk in the Chicago Loop. Thanks to Mark Hansen for going through the camera and repairing the busted viewfinder. I have shot film on and off again since 2010, primarily with a Holga. To test out the repair and to (re)teach myself how to shoot on the Rollei, I exposed a few rolls and sent them off to The Find Lab. Here are the results of a few recent jaunts around IU’s campus:
In recent years, heavy snowstorms have been rare in Bloomington. Since my wife and I moved back in 2014, this storm was only the second time that we’ve seen this much snow here in town. This storm reminded me of my time in South Bend where this sort of thing was the rule instead of the exception.

Back in the summer, I was tasked with showing Indiana University’s iconic Student Building clock tower in a new way for an IU Communications project. I lucked out and happened upon this beautiful evening. This photo was actually an outtake. It was a shot I wanted to get just before landing the drone, but it ended up being my favorite from the entire shoot. It’s an example of shooting something for myself just for the sake of personal creativity after I’ve gotten “the shot” the client wants.
