Film Fridays | September Edition | My Lil One

Shoot a roll of film and share the entire roll on the last friday of the month...its called...film fridays! You can follow the entire group of us filmies by clicking on the blog links in each post. I'm looking forward to learning from everyone's film adventures. Grab an old film camera and start shooting :). I actually shot a whole roll of 35mm film at the Steelers' game that my husband made me me go to (ahem, I mean brought me to) this past weekend. However, I've been missing the colors and creaminess of my Contax. I actually just got these scans back after holding on to this roll for like forever! And lo and behold, that Fuji 400h + Contax color that I adore...a shot that doesn't really mean anything to anyone else, but means the world to this mama. This was his first day of football practice this year and he graciously gave me a 5 second pose. And to show you that sometimes straight scans may need a little bit of adjust to your taste processing, I've included a before shot (straight from lab scan) and an after shot (a little bump in midtones and a color balance layer in cs5). I think I needed this as a reminder to not give up on film...keep on shooting, keep on sending those rolls in...keep on keeping on...I heart film and I'm so grateful to this group for keeping me on track! Now keep on keeping on by following our entire circle and visiting Hampshire children and family portrait photographer, Jenny Owen's blog next :). Have a good weekend everyone.
