Film

I have enjoyed taking film photos for as long as I can remember; there's just something so dreamy about raw film photos that I adore so very much.  I did go through a lomography phase complete with my Diana F+ and 120 film, but found myself loving 35mm film and using vintage cameras much more.  These days, I like to use expired 35mm film that I find online or at garage sales because I really like the imperfections and such and also the thrill of not knowing how/if the photos will come out alright; I've had real good luck so far, and each roll is always so different, I love ending up with unexpected lovely results.  Lately I've been primarily using an old Canon 35mm that was passed down to me, but I also have a 1960's Argus that I use here and there, and on special days I break out my old Polaroid that I use with expired Polaroid film, because though I most definitely appreciate the Impossible Project and the convenience of being able to order brand new film, I like to keep it authentic, even though it may cost a little extra to get the real deal.
Here are some of my favorites from recently developed rolls.

  1. Film is my favorite! I've been shooting color and black and white film with a Canon AE1 for almost three years now, and I'm still obsessed. I love the grain and the natural, raw quality. Your photos are beautiful!
