Interested In You

I think I have mentioned a million times before that I have a huge interest in photography. I like to use disposables a lot for when hanging out with friends, and of course a Canon DSLR for the blog (I just ordered the T2i to also start taking HD video to make my own short films!) I also use a Panasonic Lumix for various family events and gatherings, a Fisheye for music festivals, and a Holga for summer fun. Then there is this Canon 35mm film camera. Its big and bulky and from the 80s. It was a gift from a stage manager who my mom worked with when she produced a musical a couple summers ago. I have only used it once before, and decided to pull it out again a couple days ago and really try to master the art. I still have some work to do, but here is what I came up with in the mean time.

Have I ever talked about my affinity for 70s dresses? They aren't up on the blog as much as they should be but I really love them; they're so much fun to find and collect. They're so full of personality, they always make me wonder what woman wore them before me.

Im fascinated with how light hits an object in photos. I guess thats the principal thing in photography, but I love how the sun catches this silk shirt I bought at Forever 21 last year. It hasn't been on the blog, but I felt like I should point out I cut off all the buttons and replaced them with beautiful mother of pearl ones. I felt like a real housewife when I was sewing and it felt good.

And it wouldn't be a roll of film without a picture of flower porn to complete it.

Apologies on my absence for the past couple of weeks. Final projects and finals have really gotten the better of me, as well as the planning of a small trip to Oregon next week, and a major surgery in less than half a month (will discuss later.) I have a DIY coming up that Im excited to show you as well. Summer is going to be great.

I am also very interested in photography and almost exclusively use a Nikon 35 mm SLR camera from the '70's with black and white film. It feels so much more like art that way, and I can really have control over the outcome of my photos. I love photography more than almost anything, and it your photos look amazing. I can't wait to see more!

These are some beautiful photos! At first I had to squint to get what you were photographing in the second picture but it's actually my favourite. I love the effect of light and texture there :) I wish I had the patience (or maybe just the time!) to really learn the art of photography so I could create beautiful things too <3

Gorgeous, gorgeous photos. The HD video on the Canon T2i should be beautiful...I have the 7D and I love it so, so much.

You're inspiring me to experiment with film! I have a little old Minolta that I have yet to use. I'll definitely do that this summer!

Love the florals!
Replacing buttons is always a great way of altering and recycling :)

absolutely love the photos you took! My favorite was the one of the F21 silk shirt. You should post your photography more often! I find it very inspiring and a nice change from outfit posts. Don't get me wrong, I love your outfit posts as well! Would love to see some of the Holga photos. It's great camera. Also, does the 80's Canon happen to be a Canon ae-1? If so, it's a fantastic camera! So easy and fun to work with!

i completely adore photography too. I love your couple pictures you shared here. if you think about it, photography is really about capturing the light, not just the item or person in the picture.
