Still life studies with one of my favorite flowers, peonies.
It is so good to be able to share some recent 35mm film. Life has been moving at such a fast pace lately, and we are finally at a point in our summer where things are settling down. The first half of summer was filled with visits from friends and family, traveling and attending summer weddings.
Now we are easing back in our routine for summer, which means a lot of time at home and exploring new creative ideas.
I’m trying to figure out where I’d like my business to go - what avenues I’d like to pursue, where I want to spend my time.
One thing is for sure - my love for film will never waver. I have so much more to share with you, soon!
Recent still life captures of florals on film.
And I continue to keep fresh flowers on our table each week. Sometimes from our garden, other times from the grocery store. But I love the pop of color and brightness they bring to the room.
I usually choose to photograph in bright, natural light.
I decided to push my comfort zone a bit and capture these blooms on black.
It was definitely out of my comfort zone to photograph with a dark background. But I love how it makes the color pop. And I'm reminded how good it is to change things up.
Here's to pushing our boundaries and seeing where it takes us.
Polaroid 660 Land Camera| Polaroid 600 film (oh how I miss my 600 film!) One of the things I love the most about photography is the ability to forever capture an instant in time. And knowing that these pictures will live on much longer than me. Capturing not what's there, but what I see - My perspective, my spin, my vision. The funny looks I get in public when I am composing, focusing, and clicking away (most times with a baby on my hip) don't bother me at all.
In fact, sometimes I feel sorry for those people who don't see. And I feel that if I could just put a camera in their hands, maybe, just maybe - they will be able to notice the beauty in their lives.
I enjoyed tea this weekend with a dear friend and our girls. And although it rained outside, we were nice and cozy inside, enjoying our tea.
A little preview for you ~ I took film images as well, which I hope to share with you later this week!
I have to admit that I am picking up my film camera more than my digital these days. And I'm truly loving it.....
I've included the last photo to show you how many of my photos are taken. With my baby in my lap or on my hip. And I wouldn't have it any other way!
I just want to thank you for your visits this week. I truly appreciate your comments and emails ~
Have a wonderful weekend.
