I’m taking advantage of this ‘Indian Summer’ weather in Virginia, to blog one of my favorite shoots of the year, these film family portraits on the bay of my sister’s beautiful family! As many of you know, I started incorporating analog photography into my work a year ago, and I have been so fulfilled shooting film since the transition. I learned photography on black and white film in the dark room, but I hadn’t used it in my client work and shot mainly digitally since art school. This past year has inspired me to push my work to a new level, and shooting film has helped me slow down to compose each image with grace, authenticity and beauty. I am embracing the soft, subtle colors, grain, movement and slight imperfections that make it beautiful, and every time I receive scans back, I am blown away by the quality of light that film captures. While I shoot hybrid (a combination of digital & film) day-to-day, I couldn’t wait to get my handsome little nephews in front of my film cameras this summer. The images below were photographed all on film, with a combination of medium format and 35mm cameras, and I hope you enjoy this new path my work is taking!
