getting my film legs back | personal project | red deer family photographer
Every February I feel the heavy slump of winter and yearn for inspiration. Film photography is something that always boosts my creative spirit and I think I have inadvertently started an incredible personal project.
There is this light that happens this time of year around 10am at our patio door, a light that stops you dead in you tracks. We are lucky to have as much sun as we do in the Province considering the bitter cold that wreaks havoc on us for months on end. Last year I was still relatively new to film (I say new but like most, thats where I started off but got lost in the world of digital) and I wanted to experiment. So, I grabbed 4 cameras, 4 different film stock and my somewhat willing 3 and half year old Jensen and spent 10 minutes rapidly metering and shooting before he called it quits. I wasn’t expecting much but was blown away when I got the scans back and decided this would be a great little growth project I could concur every desolate February. To see those images, please click here.
This year my youngest, Hudson who is now almost 2, decided to join in. It’s hard for me to accurately describe the sense of wonder when I see these, I day dream about putting these all together after the years and seeing how much they have grown.
Thank you for looking…..
