Riverwood Mansion Bridal Portraits.
I’m always looking for outlets to push forward, improve my art, grow my creativity, and feed my soul. I set a goal for myself every year to try new things, expand my knowledge, create more beauty, and nudge my inspiration.
I’ve had a growing passion for the seductiveness of real film. I’ve been trying it all. It’s complex yet so simple, so different from digital.
“Film, is like memory. It has soft edges and complexity of tones, highlights and shadows. It isn’t sharp, like digital. Memory impresses itself deep into our consciousness with feeling and emotion. Only film can boast this type of connection. It is our modern day renaissance movement.”
A good friend once said, “In everything, find your why. For when you do, you’ll find your way.” Discover yours… and forge ahead, my friends.
I took a trip to Nashville, Tennessee in May. I went to a film photography conference where I could immerse myself in what I was trying to learn. I spent three days there absorbing all the information I could from the speakers and experts in this medium.
I forced myself not to bring my digital camera…gulp! Without the crutch, I was forced to shoot my film camera, which is exactly what I needed.
The following is a result of that lesson. Ellen’s bridal portraits photographed at The Riverwood Mansion on Black and White Film (Ilford Delta 3200).
