“Just living is not enough…one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.” –Hans Christian Andersen
I shot this self portrait at Hippie Hollow with my point and shoot waterproof digital camera set up on a gorilla pod attached to a tree using a 10 sec. self timer. It was beautiful out but scorching hot and best enjoyed from in the water, so I only took one shot with this set up, and I’m happy with how it came out. What do you think?
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?

This was one of my favorite images that I captured while photographing sex toys last week. Can anyone guess what kind of camera it is? Also stay tuned y’all, I’m posting my review of the Tantus Ryder tomorrow…
