It wasn’t that long ago that I was having big problems with my mom’s N90s and had forfeited the film thing for a while. Basically right afterwards, a friend alerted me to an amazing deal on a barely been used N90s and of course I had to jump on it. The new N90s is SO much better (well, it actually works, so I’d say that’s a big improvement), and this go around I ordered some Fuji Pro 400-H film to try something different from the Kodak Portra 400 I had shot my first two rolls on. I think it’s safe to say I’ve found my film soul mate with the Fuji…I really love it :) Now I’m ready to get back out now that there’s COLOR outside and see how amazing the Fuji tones are with some greens and blues and SPRING colors!
I still need to get a meter (not happening in the immediate future though), and still need to try processing with a legit lab, but I’m excited about the progress I’m making and can’t wait to try throwing some film in during an actual engagement session because I’m DYING to shoot some people film photography. Riley and Lexi are great models, sure, but I really wan’t to give it a shot at the end of a real session soon. The intimate look of film just makes you melt, agreed? :)
I also need to figure out how to adjust the focus point and all that, because it’s getting kind of old just using a center focus point haha
I have no idea why this next image of Landon is so warm…I guess this is where a better lab makes a difference in consistency.
…and I’ll leave you with my new all-time film fav. of my boy :)
Although I have deep roots in Maryland where I grew up, I am absolutely in love with all things southern. I live on a farm in a small town in South Carolina with my handsome husband, my beautiful step-son, our two yellow lab fur-kids, and three spoiled horses. My blog is a journal of sorts. It’s where I can share all about the things I love so much: my family, our life together, and of course all of the amazing and wonderful people and pets whose story I get to tell.
I love collaborating with laid-back and down- to-earth couples who appreciate the value their wedding images will have for the rest of their lives, and I believe in unique weddings that are truly designed around two people and who they are together. I strive to create images that are emotional, organic, fresh, and genuine, but that will remain timeless twenty, thirty, or sixty years down the road. I believe in printed images, developing friendships with my clients, and having a completely relaxed and enjoyable wedding experience. Each and every story I get to tell is unique and I truly enjoy sharing all of the little pieces that together form this beautiful relationship.
I am currently booking weddings for 2013 and 2014, so please get in touch below to start the journey of documenting your love.
