When I started this photography journey, I only shot film. A friend gave me an old Mamiya 35mm camera and I immediately fell in love. I fell in love with the intentional way photographs are to be made with film. I fell in love with the anticipation of seeing how the photos turned out and I LOVED being in the darkroom and seeing the photos come to life before my eyes.
Ever since I started shooting digital, something has been missing. Digital photography is so convenient and theres SO much that can be done with it. It’s a wonderful thing, don’t get me wrong, but it didn’t fuel my fire like film always did. So recently I decided to purchase an old Mamiya camera, but this time it’s medium format (photographer gibberish, but just take that as amazing quality photographs). Let me tell you, I am never turning back. Of course I will still shoot digital but film is my heart, you guys! I’ll be bringing it into my business in a big way. Shooting on film again brought me back to the love I had when I first started photography and that’s just it, film is nostalgic and timeless. It’s raw. And it’s exactly where I want to be.
So here is a Colorado Fine Art Boudoir session that I photographed with my new-old film camera. I’m so excited to grow this journey with film and hope I will be able to photograph you if you are a lover of the aesthetic of film like I am. It takes a lot of appreciation but there is nothing like it.
For this session, we wanted to go for romantic and feminine, but also wild and edgy. So we did both! What style do you prefer??
