Things I Love {Film}

In this digital age, most have forgotten the beauty and wonder of film.  
Some of my favorite photographers use film for wedding, portrait shoots even today.
I continue to use film cameras to photograph a lot of my personal life. 
Today, I wanted to share a few of my collection.  
Some of the cameras are antiques and not functioning - display pieces for my future studio space.
Others, still get used.

The Kodak Brownie Hawkeye (1950s)
Argus C3 aka "The Brick" (1940s-1960s)
I will admit -- I haven't loaded my first roll of 35mm into this bad boy yet -- but it's in the plans.
The Polaroid Land Camera (1970s)
Film no longer produced - serves as a display piece.  Stunning!
The Kodak Dualflex IV - Twin Lens Reflex (1947-1960)
I have plans to outfit this with 35 mm eventually.
My Canon AE-1 (1970s-1980s)
A Christmas gift this past Holiday.  It gets used frequently :) Complete with Hippie Strap!
My father's Olympus SLR.  So many incredible images captured with this camera.
A couple of my favorites captured by my father, back when my parents were first dating.
My mother is stunning!
Backlighting... beautiful!
Film is so special and magical to me.  
I will always love it and continue to use it as a medium for as long as I can!

p.s. My birthday is coming up and I am ALWAYS looking to add to my collection! ;)
