Film: Kodak Portra 400
Camera: Leica M7
Lens: 50MM Summicron
Film is a total addiction and an addiction that I will highly recommend. The current state of my life at the moment: shoot film, mail to lab, shoot more film, check email hourly for my scans, shoot more film. From the amazing natural colors to the grain, what isn't to love! Even the wait for film, even though it can be hard for the impatient, is fun because you know you'll get photos back that you totally forgot that you took. If you haven't shot film in awhile i'd suggest giving it a try. It doesn't matter if you use a fancy camera or a disposable, you'll be sucked into it and probably fall in love. Yeah it does cost a bit of money to purchase film and process, so cut back on those starbucks frapaccinos and just shoot film!
This roll is all about people in nature and I couldn't be more excited. It combines my two favorite subjects to shoot and I think it's something that I consider a bit of my niche. I grabbed some amazing portraits of my friends in yosemite and the next day I headed down to Santa Cruz for some hangs with my good friend Angela. The colors she wore just screamed film and I was excited I had Portra 400 in the camera since we were in the shaded redwoods.
