Every Zine needs a theme

well… it’s almost been a year since I started to create content for this site.

Slowly gathering content

And the bug to create a zine has hit me again.

I don’t have a concept as of yet

I have some visual idea for layout

I have some idea of the visual content…but only in broad strokes.

So, where to begin?

Every zine needs a good theme!

What should this be?

Gritty black and white photos of people in a metropolitan environment?

Minimalistic landscape photos?

Abstractions of cars with expired color film?

Late night, blurry, grainy photos of me walking around downtown? The burbs??

How about taking a look back at my previous attempt of “yellow”?

Shoot film?

Shoot color film?

Shoot black and white film?

Shoot digital?

How about lo-fi-ish iPhone digital photos?


35mm? Medium format? Large format?

One lens? All my lenses? Just primes? Just zooms?

All of the above, put it all in a blender, and see what happens?

Lots to ponder…and I’m going to do what I did last time. Spend about a week just OBSERVING my world. 

THEN move forward.


WTF is this…and why??

Or…The Start

Over a series of texts and phone calls, I came to realize there is A LOT of info that my friends and I were coming about that should be shared. I’d be naive to think that we discovered a lot of this knowledge ourselves, but I doubt that’s true.

Thus, the idea of this blog was born. Not only as a collection of our growing knowledge about analog and hybrid photography, but in photography in general.

You know, stuff like composition, shooting techniques, “seeing” light, to the technical stuff. Things like scanners, films stocks, developers, Lightroom and Capture One trick, etc, etc, etc. Even the occasional behind-the-scenes video / article.

In the interest of “paying it forward”, felt like it would be good to share this knowledge with all of you that are interested in film, in digital, and in photography. 

There’s another reason for this site…admittedly a selfish reason..and that it to push myself as a photographer. To push my knowledge of film further. To answer “what-ifs”. To push my knowledge of composition further. To PUSH me further along a path I started as a young kid with my father and grandfather letting me “look” into their cameras and the magic and excitement that I saw.

In summary, welcome to All The Worlds A Blur. You’re welcome to join us on this journey. To join us in this community. To grow and learn with us. Or not. The choice is yours!
