Film Inspired Blog Circle: Episode 1


I am super excited to be taking part in a blog circle from my favorite corner of the internet, the Light Inspired forum, with a ton of other talented photographers! But what I love about this particular circle is that it’s all about film photography! I am so happy so many women on the forum are pursuing this because it led me to ask my mom for her old Nikon FM camera! Attached is a beautiful 50mm 1.4 lens that I have just loved playing with! That bad boy is totally manual, except for a little indicator helping with my exposure. I manually wind the film, manually, focus, manually advance the roll, etc. It’s been difficult with a speedy toddler but I just love it! I used Portra 400 film for these images. I do hope you enjoy the snapshots I captured as my little family and I took a small walk in the desert behind our house and my husband found a new workout toy :oP

After you’re done taking a peek at my work go check out Hilary O’Dell’s Film Inspired post!
