Shot on Film 3

For this round of film, I was gifted a Kodak FunSaver. Its a small, bright yellow, disposable camera and frankly it was the best. I spent most of this roll at Rapha and on my bike so its got a nice theme to it. While the camera and the film doesn’t have the “pro” look that an SLR loaded with Portra gets, shooting this was so much fun. It was much simpler and reminded me of being a little kid, heading to camp in the fifth grade, armed only with a pair of binoculars and a small, disposable camera. Back then all I had to do was charge the flash, hit the button, wind, and hope for the best. The same is still true today. This is a collection of good times with good people.

Hello! I’m back again with another roll of film. It took me a lot longer to finish out this one with all of the madness that comes with the end of the semester, but I’m still pretty happy with how this turned out.

There’s a lot of time in this roll. The photos here, to me, tell a story about the last few months of this semester. There are photos of the daily walk to class, celebrations of another successful year, escapes, and a look to the future. Some of these photos hold nostalgia, snapshots of a place I’ll never be again, others are representative of what’s to come, even if I didn’t know it then. The time in this roll told me a lot about myself, I’ve learned about where I can grow and where I’ve strayed. I’m more content with living in the present and letting life happen one day at a time. This roll ended on the same hike the last one did, this time though, we made it to the top.

I wanted to try something new with this set of photos. For a while I felt like everything I took photos of was so that I could post it on Instagram. That every photo I took needed to be the best photo rather than a photo I wanted to take.

I needed to slow down when shooting and I figured using film would be the best way to do so. The photos below are my favorites that I had taken over the course of March. Its a nice mix of outdoors and coffee shops and considering that’s where I spend a lot of my time, I’m happy to see that these photos are reflecting that part of my life.
