A graphic designer, photographer, videographer, and maker of things. Made in Canada. Deathly afraid of embalmed coelacanths.
#Calgary’s most productive #makerspace. @Protospace members have 24/7/365 access, because inspiration doesn’t end at 9 PM. There’s always someone here, making something, learning something, or augmenting the space itself (our newest door, for example, which opens or closes when you tap any of the metal bits).
Zac, a maker at @protospace. Photographed using some vintage gear (including a #Graflex flash that still works as a flash, and hasn’t been butchered into a lightsaber). @ilfordphoto FP4 4x5 #film, in a 1955 Graflex Speed Graphic.
Kat and Scott, at @protospace. Lit with a Westinghouse No. 5 flashbulb that was older than the Space Shuttle program, in a 1955 Graflex 4x5 camera, on @ilfordphoto FP4 film, processed at #Calgary’s most photogenic #Makerspace.
4x5 sheet film, drying in our filtered, positive air pressure (low dust) 3D printer room, at @protospsce, Calgary’s most eclectic #makerspace.
Built another thing that didn’t work, from that Amazon Variety Pack of Crap That Doesn’t Work I bought last week. Oh well. I knew going in that I was just looking for some zen out time with a soldering iron, this weekend. This function generator cost $40 and came with a laser cut acrylic housing, and the single instruction sheet smelled like it had been mimeographed, so it had Expect Nothing written all over it.
These #graflex Grafmatic 45 cartridges hold six sheets of large-format #film, stacked in metal trays like a deck of cards. They have a brilliant elegant mechanism that lets them shuffle the exposed shot to the back of the deck, with a simple pull and click operation.) The film was simply too big to advance as a roll.) They’re a hassle to load in the dark, but so much fun to use. #filmphotography
