This is one of those, “puts things in perspective” kind of emails. It’s hard to believe that less than five years ago, I was still shooting film. I always loved shooting with film because it’s what I originally learned to shoot with. Don’t get me wrong, I am totally loving digital and would never go back to doing weddings with “exclusively” film. But, a few months back when I did my “green photoshoot” with Eric and Dee, I took my film camera along for the ride. It had been stored in my closet with bundles of film. I had no idea what condition the film was in or whether it had expired, but I figured I’d give it a shot.

Now these are grainy and the color is a bit off. I think that has something to do with the fact that the film was exposed to heat and was a couple of years old and the resolution the lab scanned them at. Still, I think they look kind of cool. Just threw them up here so you can see what I used to work with before digital. I shot in all film and scanned the negs in to edit in Photoshop. Man, think of how workflow has changed since then! Technology is crazy.

I will get some good film soon so I can take some good stuff with my film camera. There is just something about that sound and the smell of the negatives that gets me all warm and fuzzy.

raw photo design - >holy shmoley there is starting to be quite the accumulation of el-retardo shots of me on all these blogs 🙂

Eric Foley - >What’s film??? lol. I started with a film rebel, I need to take it out of the box its been in for the last 5 years or so. It’s probraly mad at me for neglecting it.

Salty Grapes Photography - >What an adorable shot of Eric! =D I miss the smells of developing in my basement… but I wouldn’t go back!!! I won’t, however, give up my film camera just yet though (even though it IS a Nikon.) It’s collecting dust, but I can’t let it go… I love these shots though!
