Grey Area 2018, on Film

Grey Area was an amazing experience, and I’ve already posted my first round of photos from day one and two. I also took along my Bronica and some film, and I’ve finally got around to getting everything developed and scanned. Shot 10 rolls over the two days, mostly Ilford Delta 100, with a couple TMax 400. Check it out!

The last few days have been exhausting, but so much fun! Over the weekend, I shot my 3rd music festival of the year and it was by far the best. I spent this past Friday and Saturday out in Lone Tree at Flat Black Studios for the Grey Area Music Festival. In their second year, Grey Area is a festival organized by Flat Black Studios to support local music in Iowa and feature bands that have recorded projects at their studio. This festival features everything from Americana and blues to rock and metal.

319 Fest 2018

Last weekend was 319 Fest here in Cedar Rapids. Now in its 7th year, it continues to be platform for local music in eastern Iowa. This year the festival was held in the Czech Village neighborhood and I stopped by to take a few pics. Wasn’t able to be there all day, but I at least was able to get out and shoot a few rolls of film. Everything shot on my Nikon F5 with Ilford Delta 100.

80/35 2018, Day One

This is shaping up to be a year of firsts for Shadow Fox! I had the privilege of being a staff photographer for the 80/35 Music Festival in Des Moines. It was an amazing experience – two full days of shooting from the pit! I’m still working through a full sort and edit, but in the meantime here’s a quick preview of 80/35 2018!
