This is my favorite time of year in Las Vegas. September is when you really begin to see the days and nights cool down. It’s so easy to spend more time outside, out walking the streets of downtown Vegas. It’ll be even better over the next couple of months. I love that.
I really didn’t bother trying to shoot different kinds of film this month, so everything you’ll see in this issue is shot with Fuji film Neopan Acros 100, pushed to 400. It was fun trying out different kinds of film this summer, but these days I just want to go out and shoot, knowing that I’ll love those beautiful highlights and silky blacks I know Acros will deliver. I never get tired of that, never will. I did try one roll of Arista Ultra 400, but just really didn’t care for the results. I’ve seen examples of that film online and it can look pretty decent, so I’m probably just not giving it a fair chance.
This issue is full of more urban landscapes and some street art; some of my favorite subjects that I do love about Vegas. Most shots are nightscapes, or Vegas Noir. I do appreciate shooting with decent light of day, but there’s something a little more magical to me about the shots that one can get at twilight, or night.
This continuing project has a few different purposes. One, I am using this as an exercise in editing all my photos that I created throughout the month down to a small number. Two, just for the sake of sharing my work with you; and Three, hopefully this might inspire you to do something similar, another way to share your work with others.
I hope you enjoy the photos,
