I’m starting a new blog series so I can share a fairly new endeavor of mine: film! On Fridays (maybe not every Friday in the beginning), I’ll share something film-related. Whether it’s my film work, something I learned about film photography, or maybe even new film gear, this will be the spot where I share it. This blog has been around since the day I picked up my first DSLR camera and I have appreciated all the visitors who’ve stopped by to encourage or help me grow. I’m hoping to do the same with film now. I feel as though I’ve hit kind of a “writer’s block” when it comes to my creativity with photography. I believe film work is going to help me push through that block. My goal is to also incorporate film into every session I shoot by the end of the year.
Film is not dead people. My love of photography began in film, long before the days of digital cameras. I want to get back to the raw beauty of film. I WILL get back to it.
So to begin, I’m sharing my first developed roll of film in about 10 years. It’s from my September 2012 visit to my favorite city: New York. I’d love to hear your thoughts!

I obviously have a loooong way to go with the learning curve of film. Just loading and unloading my film was tricky in my “vintage” camera. I dropped off 4 rolls of film and 2 of them were blank because of user error. Oops. I should be getting back my roll of Ilford black and white film soon, so stay tuned!
