Josh | 100% FILM

In February I attended WPPI, a HUGE photography conference. When I was there, I got to hear two of my favorite photographers speak. They both are 100% film shooters. During their platform classes, BOTH of them gave me a roll of film. Elizabeth Messina gave me a pack of medium format film and Tanja Lippert gave me some Fuji 35mm film. As soon as I got my hand on that film I felt sooo inspired and drawn to start shooting film.

My studio is completely digital at the moment, but my hope is to start shooting portrait sessions and engagement sessions on film. I have a lot to learn before I start doing this, but I thought my first attempt using film came out pretty great! I squealed like a little girl when I got my prints back from the lab. The pictures below are straight "out of camera" as they say. There is absolutely no photoshop or any post processing work on them. I love keeping my digital files clean and simple with only minimal editing because I like the photos to truly represent what actually was happening that day and shooting with film makes the moment seem even more beautiful! Anyways here is Josh's portrait session that we did with a super old canon film camera that my mom bought when I was about 10. The lens I uses was the 50 1.2 :) Let me know what you think! :D xoxo, Amanda
