Ode to Summer

I have been negligent in keeping up my blog lately, so this week I plan to share some new work.  Being that I am in a New York state of mind, the photos will be of the city I call home.  Enjoy!

As part of my journey, I have returned to shooting film – 35mm, 127 roll film and polaroid.  I love the unpredictability of expired film, especially color.  Finding places to develop color has been a challenge, and converting those negatives to digital has proven even more difficult (and cumbersome).  The results, however, I think, speak for themselves.

This shot – Kustard King – is my nod to summer.  Thank God for soft serve on blazing hot nights!  Shot in June, 2012 with Canon AE-1 using expired (2003) 35mm Kodak Gold/ISO 100.

    Yes, photographing with film is just so rewarding, in many different ways! And it feels so good to choose it too!
    Have a great day!

    • Marie – Thanks for the kind words. I’m playing and experimenting with film right now. Trying to find those shots/scenes that are best in film and those that are best in digital. I love your work – you have an amazing eye!
