The Honesty of Film
Film camera's were a staple in my childhood. I grew up watching my mom & dad take photos, nothing professionally, just as a way to document our little family. My mom has an entire album of her twenties on film, magical, real, and right off the camera. I have always loved the mysterious nature of film, you never quite know what you're going to get. Here are a selection of our favorite film scans from our trip in Zion's National Park.
We each brought a camera, and it was amazing getting to be behind the lens together. I love that we equally love to document & capture. Brian is the most brilliant man, and more times than not, he can just pick up anything and understand the concept of it so well, his showing interest in film cameras has been an adventure in itself. Just last month we were gifted his dad's beautiful old Canon film camera, which is special in itself, since both of our dad's have passed down their equipment to us. In a way it feels like we're following in their footsteps. Both of our childhoods have been documented through film, and looking back, that is a tradition we want to follow for our future littles too.
Perhaps my favorite part of film is its unreliable nature. Film has an innocent way of making me really appreciate the outcome, the process, and embrace the end creation. No retouching, no filters, just like in all of its glorious beauty.
