35mm

the beauty of film

I’m discovering more and more just how much I love the analog medium. With fewer shots per roll/film pack, you have to think about the shot so much more – and that’s really teaching me to think much more about each shot.

I’m learning to be competent in the darkroom too: rolling the film, mixing the chemicals,  timing the processes, cutting the negatives, making contact sheets, using the enlarger, and, the best part, in my opinion – developing the prints. Gently sloshing the liquid in the tray, and watching the image grow on the paper is so magical.

A few collages of some recent film photos. 35mm color film, 35mm b&w film, 120 color, 120 b&w, 35mm color reversal, and The Impossible Project Polaroid film.

 

I’m now offering all-film photoshoots: color reversal film (slide film), true black and white, and polaroid instant film. Contact me about a booking!

dorinda? i love dorinda!

november 14th was dorinda’s wedding.  now they are mr. and mrs. greg and dorinda beeley.

dorinda’s bridesmaids were her sisters, charlessa, susan, and lucinda.

bridezilla!

the ideal version of this picture would include greg and dorinda kissing by the sign.

during the reception we all pinned clothespins on the single men.  and sam won with 36.  he got the garter.

we threw wheat on them as they ran out.
