Lately I’ve been thinking about where is my photography voice/style? After getting some film images back, I thought “I’m all over the place with my style.” Lots of photographers take years to develop a voice. I’ve been shooting digital images for years and feel like I have a digital photography voice, but not so much with film cameras. My goal is to create a voice which is recognizable shooting film, digital or instant film.
Below are some photos of the Toledo Zoo taken with a Holga 120 using Fuji Velvia 50 Film, processes by Old School Photo Lab.
I don’t use the Holga very much because it needs a lot of light to get good exposures. Being winter, the sun is not something we see a lot of here in the Midwest. Take my inexperience with the camera/film and I was happy with the results; not so much with how crazy this film is. At first I was frustrated because here I am trying new things,trying to be good at them, and I feel like I look like I don’t know what I’m doing. Then I thought… “you’re experimenting! relax.” The good news, I thinking I’m done testing new films to see what they can do. I’m ready to start shooting to make my voice more clear.
