July 21, 2009


Got up at 3 in the morning to shoot the sunrise and CJ’s football practice. It was good to be up early when it’s not hot yet and the sunset was mind expanding.

I don’t see them enough, especially since I don’t stay up so late any more and to get up so early is something you need a reason for.

Filmed until 3pm, got back home, ate pasta and went to bed at 6. I just woke up 12 hours later. Missed the sunset

I had long form dreams.

Yesterday I noticed something weird. When I film early in the morning my mind starts to think in lenses focal length.

It’s kind of disturbing. I’ll try to drive or park and I hear my thoughts going – I can’t park here I have the long lens on. I should change to the 28mm so I can back up first.

What on earth is that.

Then when I get on the road it will go on for a few hours. If there’s a bridge I’ll hear my mind saying. That’s a narrow bridge I should change to the wide lens so It’s easier to be steady.

Matthias Koenigswieser and Ben Parrish

DSCN1111Matthias was here for a week.

It was so lovely.

We watched a lot of the footage and he shot some beautiful stuff on 4th of July.  I love the early stuff I shot by my self but then at a certain point I started to shoot with one camera as if I have two.

I need to commit more to master shots before I jump to get all the little moments I want to capture.

Now I’m on my own again.  A lot easier to sweat with no one around and get lost in my Salton thoughts.
