Shot on Fiml™

I’m going to lead the back-to-film revolution, and it will be televised. The first step in Le Grande Scheme is to rebrand film as Fiml™ (borne of a late-night IM typo) and market it as the latest rage in the Retro Analog Revolution, which is also on my list of trends to start. I figure if I write up a really good blog entry that makes it to the front page of digg, I’ll be screeching, “Mission accomplished!” from the deck of an aircraft carrier in no time.

In other news:

•Tomorrow night, thanks to a kind referral from Mark, I will be photographing game 5 of the Spurs/Jazz series for USA Today. Look for me on the TEE-vee. The first loyal follower to e-mail me a screen cap of my ugly mug on the tube gets a free print. Good luck with that.

•I recently photographed a local music duo called Monroe, and after viewing the contact sheets, I just now got around to scanning a few frames.

My focus was off on a few shots, which is unfortunate, since I wasn’t drunk during the shoot. Maybe I was just being lazy. I hope that’s the right excuse. Anyway, I’m not too worried about it; it was only on a few shots, and those are slated for the web anyway.

Check out Monroe if you get a chance. There’s some really good music flowing out of these two.

Here are a few frames:
