Interesting Photography YouTube Channel (Extra Credit)

This YouTube channel is one that I regularly watch, and I thought it would be nice to share it. The guy who runs the channel works a lot with film photography, specifically medium format, and he brings you along with him to show you the process of shooting photos, from landscaped to portraits. I find them very entertaining to watch and also very insightful! He also has a series where he interviews popular film photographers, which is also a very entertaining segment to watch. Below is the link to his YouTube channel.

Local Photographer (Extra Credit)

One photographer that I am very fond of is Michael Bala. I met Micheal one day at a skate park on Beacon Hill in Seattle. At the time I was not aware he was a talented photographer. But come to find out he is! He has multiple bodies of work and they are all very attractive to me. I believe that all of Michael’s photos are film and are shot on a medium format camera. This gives his images a look that I personally find very pleasing to the eye. A lot of his work is very nostalgic and warm, another aspect of photography that I adore. Below are some images that can be found on his website. (

The specific photo of the houses at night are something that I personally want to dabble in. The flash at night gives a very nice feel to the image, almost scary and morbid like.

Bala also has a body of work called “Last Sense” which I will link below.
