April 2018 on Film, Part 2

The second half of April 2018 images captured on 35mm film. I wrote a bit more about my personal photography project for this year here. You can also view the first half of my film images in this post.

April brings the awakening of flowers in our yard. Also in April, my husband and daughter built a small garden in our backyard. Trips to the beach are a must as the weather warms up, one out of focus image and other quiet moments around the house documented.

Once again, I used my Pentax K1000 and Kodak UltraMax 400 35mm film for capturing these images.

May film images currently underway. I will share them in June.

April 2018 on Film, Part 1

I have had these images developed for over two weeks now, and I am just now getting the chance to post them! May is proving to be quite a busy month with end of the year activities for my girls, and of course, Week In The Life, which I participated in last week.

Nevertheless, I am still committed to this personal project and excited to share my quiet moments of April 2018, photographed on 35mm film. You can read more about my photography project for this year here.

A few of my favorite people are captured this in the first half of this month - my parents and my youngest daughter. My parents were in town for a week at the beginning of April, visiting for Easter.  So happy that I captured the portrait of my mom.  You'll also see her famous gumbo, captures from a dinner party, walks around town, paintings, afternoon baths, and simple corners of my home.  I also love how you can tell the weather is getting warmer from these photos.

Once again, I used my Pentax K1000 and Kodak UltraMax 400 35mm film for these images.

Second half of April on film coming soon.

March 2018 on Film, Part 2

The second half of March 2018 images captured on 35mm film. I wrote a bit more about my personal photography project for this year here. You can also view the first half of my film images in this post.

Our Spring Break was the last week of March this year.  I had originally packed my digital camera, and realized that I forgot to bring a memory card.  Hence, you will notice that I took more than one image in Asheville, North Carolina simply because I couldn't help but document the beauty that I encountered there. Being flexible with this project and making it work for me.

This month, I used my Pentax K1000 and Kodak UltraMax 400 35mm film for capturing these images.

Film images in April currently underway.  And as always, I will share in this space in May when I develop my film.

March 2018 on Film, Part 1

Quiet moments of March 2018, photographed on 35mm film. I wrote a bit more about my personal photography project for this year here.

I love how this project is keeping a camera in my hand. Sometimes I forget how much I love photography. Sometimes it feels like a hassle to carry my film camera wherever I go.  But getting my images back just makes my heart melt. And for that, I am grateful.

The beginning of March found me in Scottsdale, Arizona on a girls' trip. It was extremely hard to take only one photo a day during that trip! Also, Spring has begun to pop up in my images. I love how that is reflected in and around my home.

This month, I used my Pentax K1000 and Kodak UltraMax 400 35mm film for these images.

The second half of March, soon.

February on Film, Part 2

The second installment of film images from February 2018, captured on 35mm film.  You will definitely see the beginnings of spring captured in these images.

You can view Part 1 here and read more about this project.

I am currently capturing an image a day this March. This time using my Pentax K1000, my first film camera. Look out for those images in early April.

February on Film, Part 1

The first half of our February 2018, documented on 35mm film. I wrote a bit more about my personal photography project for this year here.

In January, most of my images were captured at home. I made it a point in February to bring my camera with me when I headed out of the door.  

Same as last month, I used my Nikon F100 with 85mm lens for these images.

As with any daily practice, I've learned that once your friends and family know what you are doing and why, you can count on them to support you and encourage you. I hope you enjoy these snippets of our life as much as I enjoyed capturing them.

The second half of February, coming soon.

January on Film, Part 2

The second installment of bits and pieces of my January 2018, captured on 35mm film.  And once again, as I stated in Part 1 of this series, these images feel very intimate to me.  The grain of the film definitely captures the mood, and maybe that's what makes me feel so vulnerable in sharing these. You can read more about this project here.

February currently underway. Looking forward to sharing those images in early March.

January on Film, Part 1

One of my personal projects this year to document my days on 35mm film

I am quietly and thoughtfully capturing one moment of my day on film, and waiting until the end of the month to develop and scan.  So far, I've found that taking only one photo is a challenge - I could easily take two, three, or four captures. And of course, waiting until the end of the month to see what I have captured is a treat.

Right now, I am using my Nikon F100 with 85mm lens, but I'm not putting any restrictions on my camera or film - just whatever I have on hand at the moment.   

Here is the first half of January, captured at different times of my day.  Most were taken in and around our home, with the exception of a quick trip to Charleston, South Carolina.  Also included are two photos of my youngest daughter who spends most of her days with me. 

I am surprised at how incredibly intimate these images are for me. Each evokes a since of certain memory for me.  I can't wait to see how this project evolves of the year.

I'll share the second half of January very soon.
