About the Author:Christian Maike is a film-shooting photographer with a day job who resides in San Francisco. Using mainly his Contax, he shoots weddings, portraits, automobile lifestyle, and the cool things one might not notice. Click on over to his website, keep in touch via Facebook, or follow him on twitter at @christianmaike.

I was invited down to Mr. Thomas Johnson’s house a few weeks back to shoot around his property. Each day Thomas will send out his “Garden Shot of the Day” email with an artful photo of anything from his garden. He’s quite the accomplished photographer so I didn’t hesitate to pack a couple rolls of Portra 160, 400, and TMax in 120 and 220 variants. Yes, film. Medium format no less.
