Black and white film photography is my first and truest artistic love. I have been getting back into shooting more film this year, and I am loving it. I decided to take my Pentax K1000 with me to my friend's wedding and for some San Francisco traipsing last month.
I didn't take too many pictures, but I am so glad I brought the camera with me to get what I did. I wanted to capture Ruth's excitement in the hours before the wedding as we all got ready in the hotel. I wanted to document some of the preparation itself. Here's some of what I got:
There's something different about capturing a moment with film. Maybe it has to do with not knowing right away if you succeeded or not. You may even forget exactly what shots you took and thus surprise even yourself when you flip through the shots after getting the roll developed. As I continue shooting film, I hope to both become more certain of the shots I do get and also enjoy a few surprises thrown in along the way. What can I say... I want it all. Always have. Always will. :)
