Film – 02

OBSESSED with Brian’s b+w film. Especially the most recent batch.

Despite my initial aversion to black and white film, I’ve been completely convinced that it captures some of the most beautiful photos. It’s hard to imagine that a gorgeous landscape of bright orange and red leaves scattered on a mountain over a fjord might be equally as beautiful with no color at all, but it’s true.Canada in Monochrome

We brought one vintage Canon point and shoot (that actually used to belong to my parents when we were babies), and managed to shoot 3 rolls of black and white film. Since I carried the DSLR most of the time, Margaret took most of the film pictures. I have a tendency to “save” the film and try not to waste pictures which leads to way fewer photos than if I had the digital camera. Margaret doesn’t have that issue, so we have plenty. Enjoy!

film – 01

Brian’s gotten a few new film cameras this past year, and brings at least one with us everywhere we go. At first I was pretty excited about him shooting in film, but quickly realized that I’ve grown too comfortable with the instant turnaround of iPhone and digital photos and I hate waiting so long to see the photos.

I didn’t realize how much goes into developing, processing, and digitizing film, but turns out it’s a pretty lengthy process. Brian’s still streamlining his workflow, so up until a few weeks ago, we had mass amounts of negatives that were basically useless to me. THEN we found a great scanner at Goodwill for $7.00 with a film scanning attachment, so he spent an entire weekend developing and scanning the rest of the film. It was so so so fun to look through all of our pictures from the summer, and even our vacation to Portland and San Francisco this spring!

He gave me the password to his Dropbox account this morning, and I got sucked into the black hole of film scans. I am in LOVE with his photos, and I just can’t stop looking at them! I totally understand now, why people love film so much more than digital photos. Film is so much more emotional and you feel like you know exactly what the photographer was seeing when they snapped the picture.

These are some of my favorites… totally untouched and raw. PDX+SFO+CHI
