Film snapshots {cleveland film 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}

Another film post? OH YEA, BABY {cleveland film photographer}

I have been loving using film; the way the film reads light, the way it reads sky, the actual psychical feeling of the print in my hand, the texture of film. I love the anticipation of getting my scans back, I love getting the actual print itself. I even love putting the prints in my… Continue reading Another film post?

Film Photography Love {cleveland film photos}

Once again, I need to sing the praises of my favorite film developers, Old School Photo Lab, in Dover NH. I sort of, kind of, went nuts with my film.

Thrift Shop Find UPDATE! {film photography}

A few weeks back, I was one of the lucky few who find vintage cameras in thrift shops. I happened upon a Yashica 35ME at Givits Thrift and Recycle. Read about that HERE. I used up one roll of film, with all my fingers crossed that something, anything at all would come out. The camera… Continue reading Thrift Shop Find UPDATE! {film photography}
