I thought it was color film.

There’s something truly magical about film photography. Sometimes you load a roll of film and slowly take photographs. For me, this time, it was over a period of 5 months. I took portraits of Matt and must have brought the camera with me to Illinois where I captured that gorgeous shot of my sister (bottom). I finished out the roll this past weekend and snapped that photo of Desh and  our new aloe/ jade plants.

What’s even more interesting is that the entire time I thought I was shooting color film. I imagined what it would look like to capture the red coat that my sister was wearing (see, you didn’t know that) or the green/orange contrast between the plants and their pots. Obviously all of that is lost and I am actually still happy with how those photographs turned out.

If you love photography (you don’t have to be a pro), I would highly encourage you to shoot film. If you’re in the Columbus area, stop by World of Used Photography in Grandview. You can snag a film SLR with a lens for under $40. The experience is priceless. I promise. Oh and speaking of film. I STILL have yet to finish and develop the roll from my Sardina. I got it early August so I’m sure it will be fun to see the results.

If you’re interested in booking a film portrait session with me, feel free to contact me and we can discuss!
