2014 Outfit Recap / July-Dec

As promised, here is part two of my outfit recap for 2014. I didn’t use my film camera near as much as I would have liked this year, so that will have to be something that I work on for this coming year. I’m hoping to save up to get a film camera with a self-timer since my pentax does not have that function and thus I always need someone to help if ever I want to photograph myself with it (and we all know how much I prefer to have full control of everything). While I love sharing my outfits with you guys, the feel of the photographs are just as important to me as the actual outfit itself, so I hope to implement a lot more analog photographs for you that are both creative and showcase my style.

Happy New Years Eve, dear friends! Have a safe and lovely one!

Natural State

011_15Here are a few images I finally got developed from the Summer, when Ryan and I were camping in Bruce Peninsula National Park. These photos were taken at Horse Lake, which we had all to ourselves while shooting. I kind of wish I had brought more film with me – like I had in previous years while camping – but to be honest, the trip was more about relaxing, being with nature and each other, and sometimes it’s nice to just ignore your camera and not have any expectations for yourself.

I kind of like how rough these turned out – rough in the way that my hair is sort-of messy, and my makeup is barely there, and you can really notice my very questionable posture for a dancer. I like how film feels imperfect, and real, and that I, just like film, am imperfect, and real. There is something so liberating about not be able to check yourself in the mirror before shooting. I mean, when I shoot for this blog, I don’t bring a mirror with me to the location (I’m just too lazy to care about something like that), but before I leave the house, without a doubt, I have made sure I look okay. And with technology aka DSLRs, you can see what you look like immediately after taking a photo, which really acts as a mirror. With my Pentax, this is not possible, and being in the woods, the only mirror you may have brought with you is your tiny compact, and that’s in the car, far from where you are. Unlike DSLRs, I can’t see what every image looks like and fine tune the things I do not like for the next few snaps I take. There is no immediate editing, and no way to erase the image once the shutter has closed.
