The weather has been quite cold this week, but guess what I found at the garden near my apartment? Spring blooms! The lily of the valley blooms were such a delight! I don't recall what the yellow blossoms were called, but they are also beautiful. It was pretty cold so I was only able to take my jacket off for a few minutes. And after about 15 minutes there, my hands were starting to feel numb.
I went to the garden to test out my Yashica film camera since it keeps eating up my film, and it ended up eating it again (after I tried to rewind the film). I want to do a shoot entirely in film, but my Yashica is not cooperating. There's just a soft and poignant look to film that I absolutely love. White dresses in fields of green just look absolutely beautiful on film. Skin also comes out natural and so smooth and creamy. I thought the film look would not be too hard to recreate digitally, but boy was I wrong. I can sometimes come somewhat close to it, but the looks is always a little off.....Film is somewhat fading but is anyone else a fan of film?
