I’m testing more film!!! My history with film is a love affair. I started out in the film arena (not exactly by choice), but because it was a requirement of the program at Brooks. I now firmly believe that in order to be a successful digital photographer, you have to understand the original fundamentals upon which the technology was built.
I deviated away from film at my first chance during my course at Brooks, and it was primarily because that was the direction we all went over the 3 years of classes. I continued creating personal work on film, mostly fine art, but have YET to work with film for a client.
I put out the word on Facebook for couples in love to participate in some engagement shoot testing in exchange for a few beautiful images to keep, and Brad and Jess responded immediately.
I’m so excited to share this session because my concept was really to showcase that the location doesn’t need to be “typical”. The purpose of an engagement session is to highlight the love you share with each other. Keep it simple on the location front and focus on the two of you. It’s amazing what you can get from just one location!!
Thank you Brad and Jess! I hope you love them as much as I loved creating them!
10 year old Kodak Portra 400. Mamiya 645 AFD. 80mm lens.
side note: This film is VERY old and expired. It was stored in a freezer which helps to maintain the ASA, but as you can tell, it has degraded and therefore the film is grainy (which I actually don’t mind for the look of this session).
