film + natural light

My friends, I have fallen in love.

With film.

There, I said it.

So excited to share these first few film shots with you.  I have to admit that I’m learning, and that’s the beauty of it.  My first roll of film came out completely blank.  Imagine my surprise when I opened my package and a blank roll of film fell into into my hands.  Ha!  Turns out I hadn’t loaded the film correctly.

I tried again.  I still have a number of things to learn, but I love the grain and how this camera captures natural light.  With film, I feel like I captured the essence of this room.  I love that.  No post processing, just the photo – pure and simple.  A great way to start this new year.

More soon.

    I love these! So simple and quiet. They seem to hearken back to a much slower and quieter time. And there really is nothing like good old film, is there? Happy New Year to you and your family! Blessings to those precious girls!ReplyCancel
