Enchantress

Last weekend, my bff Ely came to visit me, and one day while she was here, we went to Hippie Hollow and went skinny dipping, did some spells, and shot some photos, including this Polaroid. It was a magical day, and I love this photo she took of me.

Have you ever been to a nude park or beach before? Do you still shoot with Polaroids? Let me know in the comments! Also stay tuned in the upcoming weeks for more photos from our trip.

Old School

I finally got some film for the Polaroid camera I’ve had since the late ’90s, and I’m digging the old school feel! A friend got me a pack of color film for my birthday1, so there may be more on here soon…stay tuned!

Playing with Film

This month’s Sinful Sunday prompt is vintage/retro, and right away I thought of this image that I shot a couple of years ago and have been holding on to. It’s a self portrait of me playing with an old film camera (taken with a DSLR and edited in a retro style.)

Speaking of film–I haven’t shot with film in ages, but I’ve been thinking about starting again. There’s one black and white film class in town that I know of that I’ve been wanting to take, but the timing hasn’t worked out so far–some people have also suggested teaching myself/making my own darkroom. I also have an old Polaroid that I could experiment with, but film for it is expensive.

A couple of weeks ago, I bought an underwater disposable film camera at Walgreens before a friend’s pool party, and I’ve shot a few sexy images on it…only to realize I’m going to have to send it off to get developed, and I’ve heard many places don’t even give you your negatives back anymore. So now I’m not sure what to do with those…

Do any of y’all still shoot with film? How do you develop it?
