Oh film… how I love it {cleveland film photographer}

These are all personal shots I've grabbed with either my Nikon F100, my Nikon FG, or my Vivitar v3000s 35mm film cameras. I feel so much more relaxed shooting my everyday minutes. Clearly, I photograph my kitties often and a lot. We took some time at the Cleveland Museum of Art and played in the… Continue reading Oh film… how I love it {cleveland film photographer}

The one about the Thing {cleveland writing photographer}

Just as a heads up, there won't be a heck of a lot of photos in this, and it's super personal (albeit a bit rambling).

Dan, like most men, came into the session with ideas about how it would go-- and he was thinking it would not go… Continue reading It’s going to be better than you think {cleveland family photographer}

Early today, in a photography group I belong to on Facebook, we were talking about "going back to film". I've mentioned before that there was no "going back" to film- I didn't ever really shoot film, except for little point and shoot pictures like was the only thing available to most of us in a… Continue reading Film snapshots {cleveland film photographer}
