Of my sister Clara.
These photos just happened, really. We were outdoors on a late afternoon, in the backyard, just talking. Then it was like “the light is beautiful… your eyes are beautiful… wait, let me grab my camera.” I had some expired Fujichrome film loaded in my 35mm SLR, so that’s what I shot with.
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!
I just got new glasses from Warby Parker! The Zagg frame, in Tennessee Whiskey. I really love the split-color plastic frame, with dark tortoise on top and crystal on bottom.
Warby Parker sells designer frames, prescription lenses included, for only $95. And for each pair sold, they give a pair of eyeglasses to someone in need.
