LATELY IN PHOTOS

During a photo shoot for a friend, Flynn insisted on modeling in front of his new sibling, our fiddle leaf fig!

Always turning the camera on Dustin :)

Jess Jones baking in our kitchen for a story that we’ll hopefully see in Chickpea magazine featuring my photos!

This West Elm bookcase has since been exchanged but while it was in our home, I loved this temporary collection in the foyer

My favorite from a shoot with friend, Kristie Jo

BLACK AND WHITE FILM

17380305992_fd0703f4a5_k

Check out the last bit of the film Dustin and I developed and scanned! This is Ilford XP-2 Super Chromogenic B&W 135 Film he had in the camera for a few months taking photos in New Orleans, Colorado and parts of Georgia.  Like the Lomo film, I really enjoy the imperfections.  Light leaks and odd exposures gives ordinary environments character.  That first photo blew us away. The crispness of the building is stunning!

Lastly the final three photos were taken in Cloudland Canyons, GA

Dustin’s so talented, love that he shoots film while I shoot digital.  It’s fun to see the difference in what we capture during our trips.  Hope all of these film photos have inspired you to dust off that analog camera and shoot some film for yourselves!

LOMOGRAPHY 35MM FILM

17069635759_bc295d2b53_k

The scanner we ordered from Amazon came in and we immediately got to scanning all the film we had from months and months ago! For $100 this thing is awesome and will save us TONS of money when shooting film.  The Lomography film we used was color negative 100 ISO 35mm which you can buy for cheap here. This film loves the sun and creates interesting light leaks and color.

In this post there are photos from Edisto Island, The Atlanta Botanical Gardens, Piedmont Park , Tennessee, Florida and good ole home life.

All photos (minus the one above) were shot by my talented fiance Dustin!

SYDNEY ELOISE

Sydney Eloise and her band are recording a new album that will drop this Summer on vinyl.  They are aiming to do as much of the process, including album art, in analog form.  I loved this idea and was glad to get involved and shoot some photos of Sydney in the Highlands last week.  Dustin knows the Canon AE-1 way better than I do so he came along to shoot film and I shot instant with the Instax Mini.  Here are some of the photos we snapped —

We had the 35mm film from this day developed at a local shop but went ahead and invested in a scanner to save money now and down the road.  The place in Decatur wanted to charge us a $1 per scan and something like $5 for each print, and we had 5 rolls!  Excited to see how this new equipment changes the way Dustin and I capture memories. Perhaps even more film is in the future!  Even though the art of film has faded there are still photographers putting in the effort to shoot analog, like our wedding photographers. I also really like that Dustin has made it a hobby as well!

PRESERVING PLACE | BISCUITS + JAM

16991359062_990dd85a83_k

Preserving Place is a natural light filled storefront with an interactive kitchen and dining area.  It’s located in Westside Provisions shopping district, one of my favorite areas in Atlanta. Recently my gal pal Sarah Dodge took over the classroom, photography and social media role.  She’s helping spread the word of what they offer and that anyone of any cooking (or non-cooking) background can join in and have some fun while learning skills and recipes.

When the Spring class schedule came out I was drawn to several classes.  As a birthday gift to myself, I attended the Biscuits + Jam class on March 24th with my girl friend Natasha.  When I got there I was pleasantly surprised to see many familiar faces as well as meeting some new ones like Blayne of This Photographer’s Life -who is so funny and great with a camera.

The class was a hit, take a look–

The table was beautifully set while we cooked. I couldn’t keep my eyes off that delicious looking bacon! In between mixing and learning we sipped on wine they provided, keeping things silly and light-hearted!

We were put in teams of two and went down the recipe step by step with instructor Sarah leading the way. Our class had some jokesters, myself and Natasha included, along with Conner who’s a local stand up comedian who was challenging the class and cracking us up!  We had fun with it and didn’t take things too seriously which is what I’ve realized I love with the people I know and Atlanta as a whole.

Sarah shared many tips with us, which I won’t give away because you should just join in on the fun! We filled our bellies with biscuits, bacon, wine, fruit preserves and filled our minds with memories of a JAM’n good time!
