35mm: A Love Story

I will always have a soft spot for 35 mm photos. These days I think of them more as point and shoot— snap shot type images as I like to use medium format or digital for bigger projects. But sometimes snapshots are the most fun. And of course, snapshot doesn’t necessarily mean poorly composed or uninteresting— just that it was snapped in the moment. A “love at first sight” type shot. An image for posterity. A friend of mine reminded me recently that it is important to have a good balance of reverence and fun in all things you do. To not take things so seriously all the time. It was a great reminder for my day to day but also creatively. 35 mm does just that for me.

I recently purchased an on camera flash for my Nikon FE and have been playing around with a more snapshot look. I can tell you, I’m really loving the results and it has inspired a much larger project for the coming year.

I can’t wait to share it all with you.

Just for fun.

I’m the most grateful that I have friends who let me take pictures of them all the time and they never get tired of me asking. It’s a real blessing.

I chose to leave the raw edges on some of these film scans. Film… it doesn’t have to be perfect to be fun, right?
