abused and forgotten

When you're shooting film you've bought off someone on Craigslist, the film is expired, and they're not a photographer, all bets are off. I bought this film from a nice family whose photographer uncle passed away. The film had expired in 1974 and was tungsten-balanced originally. I shot these photos manually metering through the Leica, so really, with all that in mind, I'm happy I got any results at all.

about Branden Frederick

I am a photographer: I have fun taking photos, and I always have.

I've had a camera in my hand my whole life, a 110 camera as a kid, and the high school's 35mm SLR later. In 2008 I spent six months doing nothing but taking photos and loved it. From that point on I've had my camera surgically attached to my hand (I lie). I went digital in the year 2000, and I came back to film in 2013. My parents tell me my photos are "nice".
