While I eagerly wait for Carmencita to send me my film scans from this year’s family vacations, I thought I should start doing something about the 50K+ personal photos lying around my hard drive. This summer I started shooting on film and it’s been a great source of learning. I discovered, for example, that if I measure the light properly before I take the shot, my lab can take care of all my color workflow and once I get my scans back, all I need to do is open them up in Lightroom, click on my preset and TA-DA. Quite literally.
This summer I had a few weddings to shoot, so we couldn’t travel, but we did try to be outdoors as much as possible and take in all the sun we could possibly accumulate in our skins before the weather changed. Because, you know, winter is coming. Winter is always coming here in Sweden. We visited our friends’ farm and saw their cows, had some junk food one day (which is a rare happening in my life, as I love cooking and my homemade burgers are pretty incredible), went countless times to the dog beach and let Astro swim and run like crazy… I tried some double-exposure and played with my tilt-shift lens -> I love how it looks on film! It was a good family summer! It rained quite a bit, and it was not as warm as the past years, so no bikini for me this time :-(
