Sixteen millimeter cine, 6cm x 7cm. Eight by ten inch negatives and contacted printed images were a common standard of the period. He pioneered precision optics that were capable of capturing and enlarging quality images.
The tech savvy JJF has a working knowledge of arcane photographic theory and obscure equipment. In his noir atelier, form follows function. Because of the Leica, suddenly photographs could be captured in assorted lighting conditions with a handheld mechanism that was thoroughly modern in its construction.
For example, he utilizes f0. These optical implements exceed the perception of the human eye. In his darkrooms—which are working laboratories to develop and test different methods of experimental and environmentally friendly processes—there are a number of Leica enlargers employed.
One significant unit is believed to be the only known working example of the first Leitz enlarger. It is noteworthy that this era machine remains a fully functional precision instrument. David Gensler of LeicaCraft has examined this piece and is working with the Leitz archive to retrieve the original paperwork.
And like every other piece of equipment, the aforementioned unit works to earn its keep. It is an interactive and vengeful proposition capable of creating aesthetic content and mayhem anytime at anyplace. Shit that works is our modus operandi. And true to form, the darkroom is built as a modular portable unit. Its dedicated Pelican case is water, shock, and dust proof.

Many abuse the power of the clickity-clackity i. And every now and then something truly intriguing and beneficial to society comes along. Despite being troll central, Reddit is also a place for ideas to be shared and questions to be asked and answered, like with the subreddit AMA Ask Me Anything. As a platform for the average Joe to connect with celebs, politicians, controversial figures, AMAs are an example of the Internet bringing people together in a positive light.
John John opened up about his estranged father, the loss of Andy Irons, his nonexistent marijuana smoking habits, and his upcoming film View from a Blue Moon. We sifted through the array of filth and provided some of the best moments below.
But you can read the entire thread here. I guess that would be it. On the Tour: Yeah, I really enjoy the tour a lot. The only thing I would change about it would be to make it more in a season — so we would have half year on, half year on. That would kind of allow us a little more time to film and stuff.
I would rather do the events back-to-back-to-back. It would give us a big amount of time to do movies and other stuff like that.
On his favorite surf films: Advertisement When I was younger… Endless Summer 2 is my all-time favorite film. Me and my brothers were so into that movie, we watched it every day. We had the new blow-up vests and all that stuff.
And then right as we got to the surface, another wave hit me and I just went straight back down. Yeah, it was just a long time underwater.
Two waves. Really kind of scary moment, because we had no water safety or anything. On his favorite post surf meal: My favorite meal to eat after surfing all day is pasta. I love pasta! And it makes me really full, and I sleep really good after eating pasta.
On scary shark encounters: I had one where I was sitting there before dark, and I look down and I just saw the head of one kind of come up below my board. Like, I mean, I went in as quick as possible, I ran over the reef. At home in Hawaii there were a bunch of us and we were sitting in the lineup, and there was like a turtle outside… maybe 20, 30 feet ahead of us.
It was flapping its arms, and a tiger shark just took the thing out of the water in its mouth, and was just rolling right there with it. So yeah, those were the scariest moments with sharks.
On the existence of surf groupies: Surf groupies? I believe they do exist. Haha, one or two. He was my favorite surfer growing up — he was all of our favorite surfer growing up. He was the Hawaiian that was winning world titles and his style and power surfing was something that we all wanted to do.
So yeah, definitely a huge inspiration in my life. Advertisement On his favorite non-surfing movies: My favorite non-surfing film would probably be Interstellar. Point Break is not one my favorite movies, haha. On the future of surfing: I see surfing changing a lot with bigger waves and a lot more paddling out of bigger waves on that side of things and I see it going to the air a lot more with bigger flips and more spins and yeah, just in general, bigger airs on bigger waves.
