Photographing Beverly Hills, California With a Yashica T5
December 3, 2019When November arrives, the weather gets cooler, the leaves change color, the football season reaches the half-way mark, and holiday decorations start going up.

Capturing Interesting Colors and Glowing Halos With a Yashica T5
February 21, 2019One of the most interesting 35mm film stocks that I have been shooting with lately is CineStill 800T. I’ve taken pictures of city streets, store windows and hotel lobbies at night with this film, and the end results are enchanting and almost dreamlike.— Kevan Wilkinson.
A Re-Introduced Classic Film
December 6, 2018Back in the day, when I shot the original Kodak Ektachrome, it felt special. It wasn’t an “everyday” stock; I took more time with my photography when it was loaded in the camera. Other than the cost, its bold colors, sharpness, and fine grain placed it apart from other film.— Kevan Wilkinson.
California Desert, Polaroid Style
Instant Results in Palm Springs and at Joshua Tree With a Polaroid 600
November 27, 2018The magic of instant film begins the moment you press the oversized shutter button on the Polaroid camera. The distinct noise is apparent immediately, and this is followed by the sound of a soon-to-be-seen picture making its way along rollers toward the front of the camera, where it will be removed.— Kevan Wilkinson.
On the Waterfront
Photographing Noyo Harbor, California
October 9, 2018Situated along the Mendocino coast about 170 miles north of San Francisco, Noyo Harbor is one of the last remaining working harbors in Northern California. The locals told me not much has changed over the years. The picturesque fishing harbor looks like something straight out of a classic movie set with its rustic buildings, colorful fishing boats, and vintage signage.— Kevan Wilkinson.
