The Film & Roots Workshop Review Part 2

A few weeks ago, I had written Part 1 Review of the Film & Roots Workshop here.  For the afternoon session, we did a family session.  I decided to try some B&W film and used Kodak Tri-X 400.  I’ve never shot black and white film before, and this experience was interesting.  There were some situations where I was like “oh man, I wish I had color film to capture this really neat sun flare”.  But it was cool to see how the shadows and contrast translated in the film.  I underexposed quite a few frames, but hey, this was my first time, so I give myself a pass.  Anyway, if you want to find out more about this workshop, click here.  Without further ado, here are my favorite shots from this session.

10 on 10 Blog Circle – April

April 10, 2015.  The day before my baby girl’s 2nd birthday.  Where did the time go?  This is why I took up photography.  To document everything.  Because I can’t freeze time.  I can’t slow it down. So the next best thing is to try and remember everything.  And take pictures of everything.

We’re on our way down to my parents’ house.  We planned on a small, family only birthday party with a Minnie Mouse theme. I can’t wait for Ariya to wake up on the 11th celebrate her special day!  In the meantime, here’s our day.

Technology is key in our household for keeping everyone happy.

But wait..let’s go explore first.


Car is all packed up.


But let’s eat lunch first.  Not the healthiest, but oh well.DSC_7469

Beautiful view on our drive down.


Playtime with Nani…



…and Nanu


Last minute present shopping at Toys R Us…but they didn’t have what we wanted, if you can believe that…


So we ended up at Target



Bed time was chaotic, so no bedtime pictures this month. Thanks for reading, and feel free to follow the circle our blog circle here.

Lensbaby Love Blog Circle – April

I thought I’d take the lensbaby Composer Pro with Edge 80 optic out for a spin on this sunny afternoon. Still trying to figure out that slice of focus, but it’s growing on me.  I do like that if you don’t shift it, it’s just a regular 80mm lens (which you can probably tell from the 2nd photo).  Anyway, enjoy!
