As mentioned in this new goals post back in May, I wanted to start getting back to my roots in traditional photography. My very first camera was a basic Polaroid 600 followed by lots of simple film point & shoots. In high school, I longed for something more substantial & started begging my parents for an analog SLR, they appeased my requests one Christmas & my love for traditional film was born. I learned how to develop my own black & white film in a darkroom & carried on with that through my college years as a fine arts major. I was very hesitant to jump on the digital photography bandwagon, but now that I have, I have noticed I use my film cameras less & less. (sadness) In an effort to change that I thought it would be fun to start sharing some of my film photography periodically in a new feature called For The Love Of Film.
This is some of my older work, from a study abroad trip to Italy when I was still in college.
For larger & more images from this set go here. It's a little painful to look through these again, it leaves me with this deep yearning to go back to Italy. It was the most amazing summer I have ever had & I am so glad I was able to capture some of that beauty on film. & seriously the graininess & saturation of T-Max 400 film?!?! There is just nothing better in this world, digital doesn't hold a candle. Thanks for viewing! Happy Friday!Pin It
