After trying to shoot both film and digital on photo sessions I noticed something. My digital camera was getting in the way. The speed in which it works is like a crutch. And I found myself neglecting what I was most excited about…what is currently fueling my creative spirit. My film and polaroid cameras.
In my never ending need to grow as an artist, I decided I needed a challenge – A film only shoot.
But I did not want to do it alone. I knew it would be so much more fun and rewarding working with my dear friend and crazy, awesome film/polaroid photographer Bria Morrison.
Together we planned a theme(boho boudoir), booked the incredible model Leah Morris, scouted locations and chose clothing from our favorite store 360 Ecotique.
We planned and then planned some more.
And then the day of shooting with my precious-esss’ss aka my 250 Polaroid Land Camera and quirky little Holga arrived.
I couldn’t have been more giddy…to work with Leah, Bria, the lighting, the location, the clothing…to see my polaroid’s develop…
Right then and there – I wanted to throw away my digital camera.
Below is part one of our shoot…

I love these photos! You did so great and I absolutely love your Polaroid shots. I can’t wait to share Part 2 and see what goodies you caught! 🙂
Outstanding! I’ve been thinking about selling all my digital and moving to film only. You may have pushed me over the edge!
Thank you Dave!! I totally know what you’re talking about! I wanted to throw away my digital too 🙂 But I do still use it. Film is fueling my soul and very much influencing I shoot these days. It’s a fun and wonderful journey.
