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 happy....me slowing down and enjoying all the love in front of me. Contax 645, Fuji 400h, Image Source

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 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 :).

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.

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.

Film Fridays | June Edition

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 :). This month I was experimenting with shooting in full sun and how much I intentionally overexposed my shots. My discoveries for this month...1.) I think I like really overexposed exposures, these were only overexposed by one stop and I think I would've been happy with a few stops more, 2.) I don't really care for shooting in full sun...I gravitated more towards my open shade shots,  and 3.) I'm kinda liking converting my color scans to bw these days...
