7/52[in my place]

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.

      Maybe it’s the fact we see the good the bad and the ugly in our own work, showing only the good.ReplyCancel
