Film Friday, and some inspiration.
All photos taken with a Canon A-1 with Fuji Pro 400H film
+ I recently discovered Ashley's blog, Not Without Salt, and especially liked her Film Fridays series. Not only because I love film, and because she shoots most of her film with a Canon A-1 (which I got my hands on months ago but only just started using, only to find out that there's something wrong with the circuits that drains the battery after just a roll and half of film, so I guess that's it for that), but also because her photography is just so beautiful. Take a look for yourself.
+ When I commented on Ashley's blog to gush and to ask for any tips, she responded with a link to Jonathan Canlas' work, including his e-book. I read it, and realized I know nothing about film or photography, and fell even more in love with film.
+ The photos above are from a photo walk I took at the Morton Arboretum with Maddie last Saturday. Maddie just recently moved (back) to Chicago and is getting (back) into film. Her blog makes me appreciate the little things that make a house or a condo or an apartment a home. It was great to meet her, and to talk with her about cameras and light meters and home and jobs and the Midwest and zombie TV shows and soup. And film.
+ Two weekends ago, I attended Shanna's wedding. I remember meeting Shanna for lunches when she still lived in Chicago, when I was planning my own wedding, and telling her all the little details that were both stressing me out and exciting me at the same time. When she got engaged, I was so thrilled for her, because I knew all the good stuff she was in for. Her wedding day was beautiful, and I still can't believe she managed to plan it all from a different state, in a matter of months, during which she also moved into a new home and redesigned her blog. A constant inspiration, and I wish her and Tim the best, best, best.
Happy Friday, all!
