I hate mailing packages. I end up shooting rolls upon rolls of film before I get around to sending it to the lab. Developed and scanned film delivery days are like Christmas around here. There are usually months of memories in that box. The problem is when I do these blog posts I have to severely edit myself and what I share. Yes, this is severely edited!
We went apple picking last month.
We went raspberry picking and to the botanical gardens earlier this summer.
And we also went to Busch Gardens for Howl-O-Scream last month.
Then, we had a nap.
Ektar 100 and Portra 800. F100.

One of my best friends had a baby! Again! The first time, I was there all night, but she had to have a c-section. The next time, I was supposed to support her through a VBAC; but as I got there, they were wheeling her back for a repeat cesarean. Third time’s the charm, right? She scheduled her cesarean since all doctors say no way to a VBAC at that point. And I planned to be there for photos afterwards. She ended up going into labor before the appointment and I was out of town. She called me crying with happiness, saying she had had a VBAC right there in the OR.
This fourth time, I was determined that I would see a Henderson baby born. And FINALLY it happened. I was a nasty, blubbery mess the whole time.
Even though Daddy is also a photographer, they honored me with letting me do a newborn session with Emma. What is better than hanging out with your friend and playing with a pretty, new baby?

I love film. I cannot wait until I am consistently rocking it! But it ALWAYS rocks me to the core. I get teary and sweaty when I look at each new scan. You don’t get that thrill with a CF card.
These are all Portra 400 or Ektar 100.

I got a new toy (a light meter) and told Delilah to play. Then I just shot. 36images. 2 settings. How freeing!!!
What a difference in using pro film and being (pretty) sure of my settings.
These are all straight out of the camera and scanned by my lab. No fiddling on the computer!

And I am in love with it.
These were all taken with my Nikon F100 with Kodak Portra 400 VC and Fuji 800z. Developed by Richard Lab in LA and scanned by me. (I should have let Richard do that too!)
Imagine what I could do with fresh film, my sharper lenses and a proper light meter! I am so energized to shoot!
