If you follow photographers at all, or are interested/familiar with the photography industry, you might know that Film Photography is a very popular trend right now!! While some of our absolute favorite photographers shoot film–and boy are their images d-r-e-a-m-y, we have chosen to stick with digital because of the crispness we have found in our photos, as well as several other factors including cost, knowledge, coloring, + consistency!!
Anyway, a few months ago, we were gifted an old Canon Film Camera (the EOS A2E to be exact) by the husband of a woman I partnered with for a project. He used to be a photographer + back in the early 90s, apparently, this camera was rockin’!! However, for the past couple of decades, it has been sitting in his storage, so one day he gave it to me + said, “Have fun!!” (he was also really intrigued to hear that film was making a comeback in the industry!). Caleb, being the techie-gear guy between the two of us, was super excited to “play” with this new addition + over the past several months, has been taking some pictures with it (whenever we remember to bring it with us somewhere!!) I thought today, for some Monday entertainment, I would post a few of the shots he took of Vivian + I at Festage Park in Cross Plains, WI! We just got these back + had NO IDEA what they would look like–personally, I LOVE them : )
Have a wonderful day + seriously this time, let’s make this week one of the greatest!! Work hard, love well, + give selflessly, yeah!? xo! -M
Please excuse Vivian … she desperately needs a haircut!!!
