During my downtime I’ve been progressively photographing portraits with analog film more and more. Still in search for the perfect film stock for my tastes on one of my photo outings I met up with fellow blogger Courtney Yeh near the arts district in downtown Los Angeles to shoot a few rolls. Courtney and her two sisters (currently in Hong Kong) curate creative content that catches their interests such as photography, dance, style, food (warning do not look at their food posts in the middle of the night–you will get hungry,) and share it on HeyYehBlog.
I’m shooting with film often these days because the medium itself is forcing me to slow down and be present during the photo-taking experience. With digital I can easily find myself getting caught up in going trigger happy. With analog (and especially with my ancient-no-AF-must-hold-still Hasselblad) I am mechanically forced to be slower and more in the moment. For our outing I photographed Courtney using using a Nikon F100 and Hasselbald 500c/m with Kodak Gold 200 (35mm) and Kodark Portra 400 (120mm.) The nice thing about the F100 is that all my Nikon lens I use for work will also mount onto it –and have autofocus!
