I have always. ALWAYS. Been a huge fan of film photography. I took a course in highschool for black and white photography where we used a dark room and developed our own photos, learned to dodge and burn and play around with them, and it really struck a chord within me. No matter how shitty a day I was having, once I got into the dark room I lost myself in the dim lights and little individual cubicles we had for exposing our photos. Some of my most fond memories are of my now very best friends sneaking up on me in the dark, goofing around trying to fit as many people into the revolving door to get into the room, eating skittles even though we're totally not supposed to. Actually - we weren't allowed to do any of that stuff. But it was fun anyway.
So I have all of this as well as a simple adoration for the quality of film photos to back up my love for them! I was inspired by Melissa from The 25th Hour (who is one of my longest term blogger buddies, who just got back into blogging! YAY!) to post some of my shots after she posted some of hers here!
These first few are from a disposable camera I brought with me to Belgium! That's my mommy right there! She takes mostly all of my outfit pics. She's the best.
Just a little bit of shopping.
Being a goof with street art.
These next were taken with my Holga camera while out canoeing for my best friend's birthday! Kami - she's actually my other outfit photo photographer ;)
(Kami and her boyfriend Alex, both are the sweetest two people!)
Clearly I took lots of photos of them being all cute and couple-y in their kayak. But I'll leave it at that for now ;)
Do you guys ever use disposables or film cameras? I seriously love to, the pictures always turn out to be my favourites! But it's also expensive. I think I will try and use at leeeaaaaaaaaast two more this summer though!!
