Nikon F100 Kodak Portra 400
Isn’t this photo lovely?! Yeap, captured on film. I took about 8 rolls of film to Europe, but sadly only used about 3. Part of it was just not making up my mind on what or where to shoot with film, and to be honest, a lot of photos I took with my phone, but that was OK. I was able to enjoy being out, walking the cobble stone streets and just taking it all in without being to preoccupied with a big fancy camera 🙂
Anyway, wanted to share a little about why I decided to change the name of the blog. For some time now I have wanted to change it to something different/original. I kinda felt that using my personal name was unnecessary, especially because I don’t have a photography business (and definitely don’t intend to), so I felt it was better to come up with something else. Finally came up with Color and Grain! Why? well, it includes the two things I like best in film photography, the Color it renders and the Grain it contains, giving images a timeless feel to them (and that many try to replicate on digital). In fact, I even use VSCO for my digital editing, precisely because of the soft look of film. So, Color & Grain was perfect for me. Here, I share part of our life happenings, a life with purpose, knowing that this life is only the beginning of an ever lasting one 😉 Although most of the photos I take are digital, I still want them to have that color and grain that I so much love about film, giving photos a timeless feel.
Hope you like the new look to the blog as much as I do! oh! and finally the comment feed works, so feel free to let me know what you think 😉
P.S. If you ever see a photo you like (or where you are in) and would like to copy let me know, I would be more than happy to send you a copy 😉
