Shooting on 16mm Film

Shooting on 16mm Film

I was pretty nervous about shooting on film for my first time when I did this project back in April. I had shot on film before for photography, but the process for video is quite different. Luckily, things were exposed correctly in the end and our developing facility did an excellent job in processing. I have to say, I ended up really enjoying working with film. Nothing compares to the end result. However, as I…

Baby, You’re a Firework

On the fourth of July I was lucky enough to be invited to a FC Dallas soccer game by my boyfriend and his family. As usual, I brought my camera along and I’m glad I did; the game was, for lack of a better word, boring, and I kept myself occupied by taking photos. Now don’t get me wrong, I love soccer, but this game in particular just wasn’t very interesting. Lately I have come…

Operation Kindness

Recently I had the pleasure of working with Operation Kindness, a no-kill animal shelter located in Carrollton, Texas. They want to get to the word out about adoption! They have a large variety of cats and dogs at the shelter; all sorts of breeds and sizes and even puppies and kittens. Honestly, it was difficult leaving without an animal in my hands. Anywho, below are some stills from the small spot a friend and I…

Christmas came early this year and I managed to get my hands on some fun new gadgets…and my collection is complete! Steve Jobs would be proud. Anyway, thought I would share a few thoughts on apps that I think are just delightfully awesome. To begin, I suppose I should mention I got this fun Rebecca Minkoff case at TjMaxx for $20. If you are in need of a case and don’t want to blow $60…

Gift Rap

November is birthday month around these here parts, so I’ve been giving and receiving gifts lately. The latest one I wrapped was just way too pretty not to post, so I’ve displayed it above. Interestingly enough, I never meant to get creative with the wrapping, but just as I was about to wrap it I realized I didn’t have any actual gift wrapping paper in my possession, so I hunted around my apartment until I…
