Kodak Tri-X 400

Julie Rose

I met Julie via Instagram last year and I photographed her wedding and since then I’ve become good friends with her and her husband. They messaged me saying they were in town visiting family and that we should meet up. I then suggested why don’t we meet up and create some creative photographs just for fun and see what comes of it.

We had only about 90 minutes or so to shoot, already knowing I wanted to shoot some film I decided that is all I will do. No digital. Scary because I could just waste all our time, even though just hanging out with Julie and Jordan is always fun I still had expectation to have work to share. I brought out the Pentax 67 with the 105mm only along with two rolls of film: Tri-X- 400 and Lomography F2/400. I developed the black and white film myself and then the Lomo film was developed locally. However some light leaks happened with their people and at first I was really upset, but then as I scanned the negatives I saw how it played with the compositions quite well.

2019 started off with work I’m very proud of. I hope this year is filled with plenty of work that I can share and eventually do something with it. I want to either have a “zine” or even have work be displayed locally. I want to have more progression of myself as an artist this year.

Morgan On Film

I met up with Morgan on a beautiful sunny day. We met at Form & Function and grabbed a quick cup of coffee. We chatted for a bit and then made our way to a sweet location she scouted and thought would be great to use. When we were planning for this shoot I told Morgan I was hoping to shoot indoors because it was still pretty chilly out. Plus I just really enjoy shooting indoors for the contrast of highlights and shadows. When we were shooting I said I really wanted to get closer to this window that this location had. It was up high with no real ease of access. Morgan was able to prop her self up, but I have zero upper body to pull myself up this 6.5ft wooden platform. So I used the hand railing to get up here, pretty funny to see! I was stoked once we got up there because we had this HUGE window and the light was incredibly soft. I really enjoyed this shoot, I shot with the Rolleiflex and had something of a natural light studio.It was a perfect day shooting that filled with awesome creativity and conversation. I hope that I get another opportunity to work with Morgan!
