Fun with FILM



Dear Diary,

As most of you know I’m a photographer. I smile every time I say that :)

I love natural light, vibrant colors, and absolutely live for magic hour (the last hour before the sun sets…perfection)! I’m a Canon girl and hopelessly in LOVE with my 5D Mark III, but I’ve always loved the rawness and authenticity that film brings. Something about the soft blur quality that true film grain has just speaks to my heart. Each click of the button is more carefully chosen with strong intention and thought.

I’ve been wanting to get back to the basics recently and had a fun day exploring with my Dad’s old Minolta film camera. With it’s age brings a sort of built in, pre-fixed filter if you will. It’s a gem for sure.

“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving; 

What you have caught on film is captured forever…it remembers little things,

long after you have forgotten everything.” -Aaron Siskind
