Ever have a day where you say, “Is this real life?!” The day I attended a workshop by Clary Photo was one of those days, in an amazing way! Clary was our wedding photographer and when she announced she would be holding a workshop all about film, it was a dream come true. My heart has gravitated towards film photos for so long, getting an opportunity to learn side by side with one of my favorite photographers was a huge treat. I shared a full day with Clary and seven other fabulous photographers, we had classroom time as well as a styled shoot that was to. die. for. Every detail was just perfect, from the florals and table settings down to the beautiful models.
I’ve dabbled with film for a long time and every time I get my scans back, it’s like Christmas. Film warms my photos and heart like no other medium can. Film allows me to slow down and really think about an image before snapping the shutter, after all, rolls of film are not cheap and each frame is valued that much more. The biggest lesson I walked away with from the workshop is to go for it, which set me free. I truly believe in film and its creamy, colorful qualities; it simply can’t be beat.
What was icing on the cake? Clary has the coolest three-legged cat, Rhino! 😛
