Film Fridays | July Edition | Rolleiflex

I forgot all about these. These were shot before I sent my rollei in to be cla'd. Got my lil camera back and now can't wait to go play with it. Next stop on our film circle journey... Jessica Nelson of The Gaggle Photography! Hopefully, I'll have some new rollei shots to share for next month's edition. Rolleiflex 2.8f, Fuji 400h & Kodak Tri-X, Richard Photo Lab

Film Fridays | May Edition | The Crame Family

Where has this month gone? The boys and I have been so busy these past few weeks that just thinking about it makes me dizzy! But here we are, last Friday of the month...you get to see what our talented group of ladies have been up to lately. My film share this month is a few frames of my sister and her beautiful family. She has girls...I have boys. Ummm....I think I got the easier deal! Ha! Love you my nieces xoxo! Contax 645, Fuji 400h, RPL.

Don't forget to follow our circle and visit Katiusca Guzman next! Happy Friday :).

Film Fridays | January | Napa

Shoot a roll of film and share on the last friday of the month...its called...film fridays! You can follow our entire group 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 :). Don't forget to visit Orange County Photographer, Eileen Gomez' blog next :). So for all my film girls out there, I rented the 50 1.2 and had these developed & scanned by RPL, large scans on the Noritsu. They were a lot less grainy then my 35mm in the past, so I'm wondering if it's the lens or the large scans? Anyhoo...trying to see what lens I want to purchase next to use with my new 1V body, which I love btw :). What lens is your fave on your 35mm?

Lunch

This year I decided not to take part in a weekly project...I needed a little break from keeping to a weekly deadline. I really did love how it kept me shooting for me though...actually made me shoot, when I just wanted to sit on my couch with a hot cup of coffee and do nothing. Well, I still managed to do my share of that! and don't imagine that changing anytime soon ;)...however, I still wanted to have an outlet that obviously involved my camera and also film. So I thought I'd just shoot a roll of whatever from time to time and share a little...a little personal work, a little bit of me. What inspired this roll?...a colorful Trader Joe's lunch and a beautiful Zinfest bottle! And if you know me, you know that I can't end a meal without something sweet...:). Happy eating!

Film Fridays | December | Film is Not Dead | Haleiwa | Day 1

Shoot a roll of film and share on the last friday of the month...its called...film fridays! You can follow our entire group 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 :). Don't forget to visit Hampshire Wedding  Photographer, Jenny Owen's blog next :). I have a lot to share with you my friends and I will share more of my adventure with you soon, but for now here are a few images from Day 1 of my Film is Not Dead workshop, hosted by Jonathan Canlas on the North Shore of Oahu...yes, as I sit here in my office wrapped in a blanket, I want to go back! And if you don't know what FIND is all about, go check out what Jonathan Canlas has to say about it here. Yes, his passion is infectious :).

Thank you to Jonathan and our real couples, Austin & Katie, Ashley & Marshall and Raelayn & Bryson!! You guys are all awesome, mahalo. And this is how Day 1 shooting took place (after a full day of lecture material)...we got split up into three groups and each person in the group had approx 5-8 minutes to direct & pose them. Yes, I was nervously shaking and not sure how I actually got some shots off :)!! Such a terrifying, but awesome exercise and experience! Remember, this is just Day 1 folks...and just the beginning to my film filled 2013.

A very special thank you to my husband for making this trip possible. There were times when I thought I wouldn't be able to make it, but I think he knew far better than me how much I needed this. From my awesome FIND family to Jon's inspiration and passion, I am one lucky girl to have been able to experience it all. These past couple of years have been filled with a lot of ups and downs, and I love you Mr. Johnson for seeing me through it. xoxo

Bloom | Project 52 | Jewel

Week 50 Theme: Jewel. I'm always discovering little jewels of images in my archives. These images might not mean anything to anybody else, but they are a part of my everyday...downtown Stockton, CA. They remind me to just go out and shoot for me more next year...I want my boys to experience my world through my eyes and hopefully leave with them a little piece of me with every image :). Now let's go see what Alison Crane is up to this week: Bay Area Photographer, Alison Crane.

Bloom | Project 52 | Opposites

Week 49 Theme: Opposites. There could be nothing more opposite than these two sets of siblings. I have one set that hugs each other on command and the other set that are whispering not so nice sisterly things to each other through those smiles! Yes, these would be my nieces and nephew and I love them to pieces :). Don't forget to visit Alison Crane's blog next: Bay Area Photographer, Alison Crane.

Bloom | Project 52 | Chocolate

Week 47 Theme: Chocolate...Thankful for spending the weekend with this motley crew...fun, but crazy photo shoot against my sister's chocolate brown garage doors. Just a little peek into their sassiness...I think I have a few more gray hairs after this one, ;).

Bloom | Project 52 | Spooky

Sundays, The Bloom Forum, 16 talented ladies, 52 weeks, 52 themes, 16 different interpretations = one inspiring year! Week 44 Theme: Spooky...we don't really do the Halloween thing at our house anymore since the boys are older now. So spooky for me was a lil tough. But two images that come to mind for this week's theme are these two below. The first one because my nieces look like lil tiny ants with their stoic expressions and the second because double exposures in general kinda take on that effect on their own (accidental film double exposure). And then I went all the way back to my 2010 archives to wish everyone a happy halloween with the third image!! Have a safe one everyone!!
