Film: Philly + DC + Wedding

Noe Todorovich

When I first got back into film photography, I would fly through a roll, eager to see the results and seeing enough potential images that I wanted to create. Now, it's starting to take a little longer to work my way through, as I think about the probable result of each shot and then think "Do I REALLY want to take this photo?" 

I couldn't remember when I loaded the latest roll of 120mm film into the Seagull twin lens reflex camera. I couldn't even remember what film it was, honestly. I seemed to remember it being B&W and maybe ISO 200 so I metered accordingly. I wasn't too far off when I unloaded the exposed roll yesterday to find it was expired Ilford FP4 (ISO 125). So no real push processing required, but as you see below the result of shooting both indoors in low light and outside in ample light resulted in varying tones and contrast. I love it. I love that film can surprise you with the results. And that you have to wait to see those results (although let's be real, I have tried to look at the viewfinder to see what I've gotten from time to time). 

It turns out this roll was started in Philadelphia back in September. The camera actually went back to Philly with me on this last trip in March and then concluded here in DC at the wedding of two of my favorite people ever: Jim Darling & Amy Martin. I think between that wedding's jackpot of sweet moments at an incredible venue (Josephine Butler Parks Center) and my slowing down with this roll, I actually got results that I like as a whole...the entire roll. That doesn't happen too often.

I am also glad that I decided to bring along the Seagull to the wedding. I have been wanting to incorporate film photography into wedding photography and know of some photographers who either do a hybrid approach or even shoot the entire wedding just using film! I attended Jim & Amy's wedding as a guest, so I figured it was the perfect opportunity. Plus, Jim is an amazing photographer and dear friend, so I figured he might appreciate the film photos as well. :) 

Capital Pride Weekend 2013

Noe Todorovich

A few Saturdays ago, a craving for donuts lead me to Golden Brown Delicious (sidenote: YUM!). That Saturday happened to be during Capital Pride Weekend. I realized this shortly after taking the picture of the pedicab drivers, when we walked into Dupont Circle. (I can be a little slow on the uptake sometimes... My life motto: late, but here.)

And then walking back to the car, something caught my eye...

The Seagull Goes to NYC

Noe Todorovich

The first weekend in June, my dear friends Sandy and Anthony got married in New York City. I took my Seagull twin lens reflex camera with me, loaded with a roll of Kodak Portra 800. Not surprisingly, I finished the roll before returning to DC. Here are the results...

I. Love. New York.

I know...you probably already know that. But I can't help but gush about it on occasion, and looking over these pictures just makes me happy. Shooting with the Seagull makes me really think about each and every shot I take, and all the components of it. I have to work for it, really, and it's extra rewarding when i get the results I was looking for. Success!

Here are some of my favorite shots from the roll (about 2/3 of the roll...not too shabby, I say!). Hope you enjoy!
