I have wanted to shoot film for as long as I can remember. After years and years of wanting to do it, I decided I was done saying that I wanted to do it and it was time to actually invest in a film camera. I bought the Canon A-1 as a graduation present to myself in May 2018 and decided to teach myself film while in Chile. Over the past few months I have shot four rolls of film, one using a Canon SureShot 75mm point and shoot with Kodak Gold 200 (the last two images under “Las Cruces”) and three using a Canon A-1 SLR (Two of which were shot with Kodak Portra 400 and one with Kodak ColorPlus 200). I am absolutely enamored by film and have grown to love it more and more as I continue shooting. The colors that you can achieve and the focus are what drew me into film in the first place, and I love how well the photographs have turned out. There is always that sense of anxiousness when you send your film off to get developed because you are never sure what you will get back, but seeing those photographs for the first time is one of the most exciting and fulfilling feelings.
Below is some of the work I have done over the past few months sorted by location.
