Velvia in the Pentax 645Nii

I woke up early one Sunday morning to wander the streets of downtown San Jose when they were at their quietest. I carried with me the Pentax 645Nii, Fujifilm Velvia, and a tripod. Using them, I made these photos.

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".
