I hope all is well with you and you are all enjoying your sweet summer days.
So in today’s world on photography film is making a huge come back. And not only the “look” of film; however, many photographers are actually bringing out their film bodies and shooting on-location.
Since I began shooting, I have always had this light and airy feel, and have always been on the warmer or greener side of the spectrum; however, now that I am truly honing in on my “look” and working more and more to build my portfolio, this is something that is being perfected on a daily basis. Building one’s style as an artist never stops. Your style is consistently changing, you’re moving forward with your work, seeing what needs to be changed for the better, and how you can improve yourself. When you stop working on it — that’s when you know it’s seriously time to put the camera down, take a break for a few days, and come back to it when you’re feeling better.
Ever since I can remember, I have had this “vision” of images, the world, and how we walk through it. This is how I would describe my “signature look.” Greens of the forest, yellows of the golden hour, and a soft, light and airy sunset.. I have been practicing to emulate my “look” daily. I create my own style to get “the look” desired and am constantly inspired by the world surrounding me.
At 16, I began shooting on film. Since I began on film, grain and soft focus is something that I love capturing in my photography.
At the moment, I am currently emulating film using digital photography. I did not necessarily take on all of the techniques of the hybrid movement quite yet; however, I am moving towards that process in baby steps. I have picked up my Rolleiflex and I am going back to the basics. At home, I have been building still lives, and photographing backlit portraits of Adam indoors and outdoors. Before I begin shooting film on-location I truly need to be adept at both 120mm and 35mm for my clients.
Tagging along with this movement, for me, has been able to use the best medium (whether film or digital) to achieve the best results for my clients.
