Film Roll: Valparaiso & Viña del Mar

Valpo and Viña, sister towns on the coast near Santiago de Chile, were two great towns to explore.  For less than a $5 bus ticket  I got to the beach and out of the big city.  I know where I'll be most weekends from now on...

An ode to the ocean and my film camera that makes me so happy. 

Film Roll

I like shooting with film.  It makes me slow down and think more than I would if I was using my digital camera.  Then there's the experience of getting your prints back.  It's like opening a present except you're responsible for its contents.  Some of them are crap, especially because I'm still learning how to meter light correctly.  But the ones that work out are all the more valuable.

Shot from January - August 2014, vibrant color is naturally from the film

That one time Madysen and I did winter portraits in Wyuka and almost got frostbite.

Caught Luka in the middle of a yawn.  Gorgeous golden winter light.
