“Fall Portraits in the Summer,” Part II

Back in September, I posted a set of photos from a little shoot I did with my niece (and explained my her apparent “sulkiness” in that original post.) When I took those with a digital camera, I was shooting my Fuji GA645i alongside it. I wasn’t sure if it would be redundant to post another set of photos from the same shoot, but I hope you, like I, find some merit in seeing the film versions of photos from that previous post (plus, I got some real smiles from my niece in here 😉 )

{Just Married} Jessica + Dustin, the bonus shots

I’ll be posting more photos from Jessica and Dustin’s beautiful wedding very soon, but first I wanted to share some of the snapshots I made of their wedding with my Fuji GA645i.

{64T} GA645i

Last year, I bought a few rolls of Kodak Ektachrome 64T that expired in 1997. It’s a slide film, and the “T” means the film is balanced for tungsten lighting.  I bought the 64T with the express purpose in mind of having it cross-processed. I had only shot one roll of the 64t so far, and it had been in my Yashica-Mat (there are a couple from that same roll in an epilogue-ish post on my Amanda Goes to England blog.) I’d been itching to shoot another roll of this, but,  as I mentioned, this particular 64T expired in 1997. Film can some of its light sensitivity powers as it ages, so I shot this (and the previous roll) at 50 instead of 64. That meant I needed plenty of light to get proper exposures. Which is why I waited around until spring before I gave another roll of 64T a try! This time, though, it HAD to be in my lovely GA645i. HAD to be!

I knew this would be the most perfect cross-processed 64T shot I’d ever taken. And it is.


The rope that’s been photographed on almost every roll I’ve taken this year…

The focus isn’t where I’d intended it to be on this one, but there’s something I love about it anyway.

Wyatt’s haunches

I love the lattice design at the bottom of my sister’s porch

I’ve photographed Wyatt quite a bit lately…

{Inked} 2.0

Last year, I shared photos I’d taken to document the process of my mother getting a tattoo. A year and a half after getting inked for the first time, my little mother decided it was time to get a second tattoo! So once again, we made a trip to No Regrets Tattoo Emporium in Memphis, consulted with Joe Stamp (who’d done her first tattoo,) and made the appointment.

Mom’s first tattoo was a Celtic cross on her wrist. This time, she’d chosen a particular style of a Star of Bethlehem to be placed on top of her forearm. Joe did a wonderful job translating the artwork mom had chosen, and we think the tattoo came out beautifully! I wish I had done a better job documenting our time with Joe doing the tattoo, but maybe I’ll do better next time one  of us goes in for some work 😉
