Family Vacation- Film Only!
Well, school will be out for the summer before we know it and I am finally posting my images from last summer!
Before we headed out for our 4th of July in Vail and then our road trip to Minnesota, I decided that I would ONLY use film and my iPhone to document our adventures. It was a wonderful challenge and made me slow down and appreciate things before clicking the shutter. And I was able to capture the moments I was really going after. It was a wonderful exercise for me, and I think I may do the same thing this coming summer.
I still have more to learn about color film exposure, and all of the nuances. But I do love the texture and quality that you get from film. Sure, I could try to do it in post production with my digital images, but the whole idea is to get away from post production…leave my computer alone a little more often and be engaged with my kiddos and not stuck behind a screen. So, in that regard I have loved my film experience. It really does make a major difference in the back end. My scans from the FIND lab come back looking wonderful and I get to chose my favs and move along. Ahhhhh.
So, I thought I’d let you get a peek into our summer adventures in Vail and Minnesota. I’m ready to do it all over again!
