Assignment 1 – Film photos

I posted about learning film around this time last year, but I tried to rush into instead of taking my time and then decided it was too hard. A year later and amidst a pandemic, I found myself longing for a way to be creative and focus my energy. Sessions and weddings were postponed, and it felt like the perfect time to try shooting film again. I am loving feeling film photos give me, and I cannot wait to share my next set of scans!

I went back and watched the Shooting Film Without Fear course, and decided to give it another go! You guys, I have LOVED it. Assignment one was all about just shooting your first roll of film. I had a pack of film from last year when I bought it from Walmart for this assignment. These were all shot on FUJIFILM Fujicolor Superia X-TRA 400. The settings for most were 200 ISO, 125 shutter speed and 4.0 aperture. 

After loading up my Nikon f100 and taking few photos of Wynn, I spent an hour just driving around on a gorgeous, sunny, 80 degree day taking pictures of blooming trees and flowers. I had SO MUCH FUN. It was incredible to get out and just take photos for fun. No other purpose behind them than I wanted to or I found something to be pretty.
