Several months ago I decided to pursue learning film photography and OH, am I glad that I did! My love and heart for photography is so fresh and even fuller than before. I’m excited, giddy even about shooting film. The colors and texture of film photos are incredible and can not be matched by digital images. I love opening a new roll of film and loading it. Using a light meter to measure for exposure, and then the sound of the film re-winding after a roll is finished is so fun! Can you tell I’m smitten? I feel like I’m getting back to the roots of the craft, if even a tiny bit, and I love that.
Next year there will inevitably be changes in my business as I review the past year. Film is going to become more and more a part of how I shoot and I’m VERY excited about that and you should be too.
This month, I decided to shoot a “Fall on Film” personal project. I love how it forced me to slow down and look around at my surroundings every day. I hope you love them as much as I do!
