Film Fridays | September | Project Love | Kaede

Lil x's + o's of the ones you love...miss Kaede.KarynJohnsonPhotography_kaede_0014Who better to share my film project with than my Film Friday group :) What is project love? Project love was born out of what i love to do...capturing those tiny lil moments (on film) that we sometimes take for granted and putting them on paper...lil bits and pieces of the ones you love, for the ones you love.

Each project love session includes an 8x10 collage like the one above.  I can't tell you how much these lil sessions make my heart slowing down and enjoying all the love in front of me.

Film is Not Dead | Haleiwa | Day 2

Film is Not Dead, Day 2 was all about families. (If you haven't read about my Day 1 experience yet, you can read more about it here.) We had sunshine, clouds and rain that day, but any day on the beach is a perfect day in my book!! Like Day 1, Jon split us up into three groups and then assigned us a family to practice what we learned that day. My group got to shoot the Seibel Family and each person had 3 minutes to pose them and shoot them...yes, you read that right...3 thought I was shaking in my boots on day 1, well let's just say that I wasn't sweating because it was hot! LOL...I don't even remember what happened...but, I survived my 3 minutes, grabbed a shot from Jon's awesome setup and then tried to get a few shots of the other beautiful families as well. I have to admit that before attending FIND, shooting families made me a little anxious, but after Jonathan spelled out exactly how he goes about it and and then actually getting the opportunity to watch him do it, I have to say that I absolutely LOVE his casual approach to his family sessions! These are what I want my family photos to look like and I hope to check that off my to do list this year...I was holding my baby boy who is now 13 in my last family photo, yikes!!! As Jon stresses...photograph the people you love and do it NOW!! I'm hoping to get my sister's in front of the camera this year too...I'm sending this out there in the universe hoping that they hear :)!! Next blog post is all about my FIND family and some of their beautiful faces. Have a good week!! Thank you FIND family models!!

Film Fridays | November Edition + Project 52 | Silver

Okay, I know this is like cheating big time...but gonna be away from my computer for a while and wanted to make sure I got both my Film Friday and Project 52 posts up :)! 1. Shoot a roll of film and share on the last friday of the month...its 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 :).

As film shooters do you ever get crazy when trying to decide if you want to shoot color or bw film? Well, that's me ALL DAY LONG...I always want to shoot both and I'm not one of those who can see whether a shot would look awesome in black and white at that particular moment or not...not to mention trying to juggle 2 cameras at once. So I've been playing around with b&w conversions on some of my color scans lately and really like vsco film's hp5- preset. What do you girls do to convert some of your color images to b&w? All images fuji 400h color scans converted with vsco film's hp5- preset, Contax 645. Don't forget to visit Hampshire Wedding  Photographer, Jenny Owen's blog next :).

2. Week 48 Theme: Silver...Does b&w count?...sure it does...I think I'm doubly cheating now!! So for my Sunday Project 52 group, please follow Alison Crane's link next. Thank you girls for indulging in my madness! Have a wonderful week! Alison Crane's blog: Bay Area Photographer, Alison Crane.
