Over the years my art has changed and grown all over the place. Between film, photography, web design, and a bunch of other stuff, I've admittedly had trouble figuring out how to present my work online. At this point, I should have a 'photography feed' on some sort of site like 500px, or Instagram, a simple, image-only supplement to my website. If you have ideas, I'd love to hear them :)
While I do my research, I wanted to share some recent photos from my trip to Portsmouth, New Hampshire, with my friend Francis!
First, we went to Strawberry Banke, a 'living museum' of historical homes and people who re-enact things! Then, we moved on to the gardens nearby. It was 'the golden hour,' and we captured some beautiful photos. I'm also realizing just how much I love photographing plants!
And so concludes a fun and beautiful day. The photos of me were, of course, taken by my friend Francis, also pictured above. He takes great photos in natural light! We also caught a wedding party heading to a limo ;)
Though I took these photos with my Canon Rebel T5i, I also pulled out my new Minolta-SRT 101 camera, a vintage 35mm camera that is still a very popular film camera, today! I learned film photography in high school, and have always loved film. I also love the ease of using a film camera versus a digital camera - something you may not hear many people say, haha.
Update: For those of you looking for your own photography starter kit or information about cameras, check out this guide on “how to choose a camera” from Jen Reviews!
I bought the camera and 10 rolls of film on eBay in September for about $100 - I bet you could find a similar one, too! I will share those film photos when I get it all developed. In fact, I'm looking for film photography developing labs in the US, so if you have suggestions, I am all ears!
