    B&W Studies, No. 4

    Photo no. 4 in my new 14 image series. I like how the red filter gives the sky and clouds instant drama and contrast. The clouds didn’t last long that day and were gone by the time I wrapped up shooting. Eaves, Chris (March 16, 2019). B&W Studies, No. 4 [Photograph]. Hoffman Estates, Illinois. Shot…

    B&W Studies, No. 3

    Photo no. 3 in my new 14 image series. If you stare at this image long enough, you’ll start to make out a tree-person wanting a hug. Eaves, Chris (March 16, 2019). B&W Studies, No. 3 [Photograph]. Hoffman Estates, Illinois. Shot on a Canon 6D at 29mm, 1/200 sec., f6.3 at ISO100 with a red…

    B&W Studies, No. 2

    Photo no. 2 in my new 14 image series. These first few photos in the series were all taken over at Barrington Pond in Hoffman Estates. I still had a red filter from the medium format film camera I had used the previous summer, so I gave it a go for this set. In retrospect,…

    Wild Teasel

    OK, we’re back to a digital photo for a moment as we stick with prairie flora. Unlike my recent Milkweed post, this Wild Teasel is an invasive species that’s here to stay. Eaves, Chris (Aug. 18, 2018). Wild Teasel [Photograph]. Barrington, Illinois. Shot on a Canon 6D at 40mm, 1/125 sec., f8, ISO100

  • Milkweed


    Shooting with film is all about choices. There’s an incremental cost with film that digital simply doesn’t have. And with medium format, that shutter press is a commitment to development and scanning. It forces one to slow down and think through the details. On the same roll of film with office towers, I also have…

    Shack’d Up

    After a week in Juneau, we were happy to return to somewhere, anywhere that had sunlight and fresh vegetables. The town is amazing, and I loved the perpetual mist and atmosphere of everything around Juneau. I still have no idea what this shack was for, but it intrigued me enough to capture its photons. Eaves,…

  • Cliffs of Moher

    Cliffs of Moher

    My favorite place in Ireland, and in maybe all of Europe. I’ve had a 20×30-inch print on my wall for 20 years, and I never tire of looking at these Cliffs of Moher and remember the wonderful spring day and the people I was with. Eaves, Chris (Spring 1998). Cliffs of Moher [Photograph]. County Clare,…
