That’s me riding the Kenai coast in Alaska with a Nikon D700, Nikon 70-200 f4, Zeiss 25mm f2.8 and Zeiss 50 f1.4 along with a tripod and a bunch of batteries and memory cards. I go to great lengths to get the shots I want. – Photo by Josh Spice at http://www.staysanesleepoutside.com/

  1. Nice site…how did you convert the film/paper images to digitals on your site…scan? I’m just about to load my old nikons for a film/cycling adventure

      David thanks for the comment. I bought a $200 Canon scanner and do it myself. One day in the future I will do my own processing and scan the film negatives myself. Right now I have the film scanned and 4×6 test prints made for scanning at a processing lab. You can also get hi or lo res scans when/if you have the film processed. Have fun and good luck.

    Hey, I just wanted to leave a comment. Your article on stevehuff brought me here and wanted to say thanks for the great pictures. Especially the b&w bikepacking related ones are unique. I’m a cyclist and photographer myself and wanted to ask how you carry your camera while riding. I did a 1000 mile ride through france this summer and had the camera in my backpack but it was really a pain in the ass to dig it up every time. I’ve a small rangefinder camera, so I’m not looking for a big bag on my back or chest thats cumbersome while riding. How do you do it?

      Michael good day and thanks for the comment. I bet you have some great stories from your France trip!

      Carrying a camera is a common question. Often I carry a small camera in a Revelate Mountain Feedbag. It attaches to the handlebar and stem and was designed for water bottles and food. I put a micro fiber cloth in it and my small camera fits in it. Makes camera instantly accessible while riding or stopped. Not sure if your small rangefinder would fit or not. My Olympus 35RC fits well.

      Thanks again and hope this helps.

        Thanks for the quick response, I will order one of these Feedbags for sure. I wasn’t quite sure about the shock resistance of bags attached to bikes, their is a rumor going around that electronic devices get shattered over time, but I will risk that. The trip to France was indeed really great, even though I don’t speak french, I’d highly recommend it!

    Hi Gnat, I finally finished my Warbird build and would love to share so pics with you. Not on your blog. Let me know if this is possible.

    1. Gnat says:

      Julie, good day and congrats on getting your warbird done. I’d love to see it. You can send me pics at: WWW dot GNAT at LIVE dot COM. I hope that makes sense. I can’t put my email in the response as I will get tons of SPAM. Thanks.
