The more I get into photography the more I want to learn. I recently decided it’s important for me to learn how to shoot using film. For Christmas Ryan found me an old rangefinder camera and I’ve been playing around with it. It cost about $30 but I love what I’ve been able to learn from shooting with film so far. We have a scanner so I have been scanning them myself rather than sending them off to a lab to get them done. It is such an exciting process waiting to see the end results. I thought I would share a few of my favorites from my first few rolls of film.
This was my first time going up to Mount Davidson. I haven’t been back since unfortunately, but I would love to do a shoot up here. It is so beautiful, its a bit of a hike on the way up, but once you get up there its worth it. The hike up is green and beautiful, so mossy and filled with gorgeous trees. Up at the top you will find #thatsftree most of the time in the midst of Karl the Fog. I love these random little quirks of San Francisco. I went up here to meet up with some friends on a chilly January day. You might recognize Lindsay and Charlie, my favorite pup and mama duo. I managed to climb up on the tree and sat there for a few minutes before my bum froze off. I look forward to trekking back up here again, hopefully on a foggy day for a shoot or just an adventure.
Lately I’ve been exploring new areas a lot. Moving to the Bay Area has put me outside of my comfort zone. When we moved here we knew no one, didn’t know the area, and didn’t have a place to live. I’ve had to meet new people, explore new areas, and try all the food I can find. Recently I’ve been making a point to go outside every day. I think it’s helped with my mood, my health, and overall happiness. I sat down and my desk and realized that I’ve neglected this blog of mine for almost the whole month. Well I’ve got lots of good adventures and spots to share, so I’m going to hopefully get back up on that. This is a shot from an adventure in Oakland last week, I have a lot of beautiful images to share from this exploration, so keep your eyes peeled (that saying is so creepy to me).
