Film Friday: Antelope Island

I want to start a new little segment on here called "Film Friday".  Ever since I found those rolls of "lost film", I've been itching to get back out with my SLR.

Hopefully this self imposed challenge will get me taking more pictures with my film camera!

Without further ado, my film from Antelope Island.

How do you guys like film vs. digital?  Sorry, I didn't get any pictures of this animals with this camera...I was leaving that work to my dSLR.  And that will be a post for another day.

Found Color Film

Since I found that wonderful random roll of black and white film the other day, I decided to clean out my camera drawer (yes...I have a whole drawer of camera things in my house) and I found a roll of color film that had been used.  At least, I hoped that it had been used since it had been rolled in like it had been used.

Got it developed and that only want that I could identify when it was, was from the pictures of this happy day!


Ariel's Wedding Day!!




So the film wasn't as old as the black and white film but STILL, almost a year.

The rest of these pictures are from my garden.  I never would have been able to figure out how old this film was with just these pictures.  I will often end a roll of film in my backyard.




And to finish off the roll, a rare self portrait.

Finding these two rolls of film got me thinking about the time delay difference between digital and film.  With digital, the image is instant.  Right there.  You see how it turned out and you can tweek it on the spot.   Film always requires some kind of a delay.  Sometimes, it is just an hour from ending your shoot and getting the film back.  Sometimes, it is days.  It would be days when I processed it myself in a lab because I would have to wait until I had time to go into the lab.  In these cases, it was measured in months and years.

I'm thinking of picking a day sometime this month, and making a "time capsule" roll of film.  A roll to save for a year.  Wouldn't that be a fun tradition?

Found Black and White Film

I found some black and white film that had obviously been used but I couldn't remember what I had used it for.  So I took it to get developed and was surprised to see that they were pictures from a fun photo shoot from two years ago.  I remembered that I had colored film and forgot about the black and white.

Leave a message.  Tell me what you think.  Who likes the grain of the film?  Who thinks it's too much?

{C} Senior Portraits

Since I haven't been taking picture pretty much the whole time I've been pregnant, I thought that I would have a little giveaway on my Facebook page to liven things up.

And here is our lucky winner, who decided to use the free photo shoot for her Senior pictures!

Best of 2012: Commissioned Work

I love being able to look back on my photography and seeing improvement.  2012 was by far my best year photographically so far (it's only been 2 and a half'm feeling really good about it).

Photography has been such an amazing outlet for me and, with a little one on the way for our family, I know that it will continue to be a wonderful way to document my life and hopefully someday, a fulfilling career.

But enough about me, here is the best of 2012:
