A Night at the Beach - Ektar 100

This is my first time shooting Ektar - I was hoping for a sunny day since that is when I heard it really shines, but as soon as we got to the park the sun went behind clouds and stayed there.  But I am really happy with how these came out even on a cloudy day.  I was nervous about shooting Ektar because you can't really overexpose it or it will be red toned, and you don't want to underexpose it either.  So happy to see that using my light meter and what I've learned so far I was able to get the exposure right for these. 

 

Here is one of my favorite Ektar images from the same roll, really loved this stock.

At Home with the Joyce Family | Cleveland, Ohio Family Lifestyle Photographer

The last time I saw these guys was when the youngest was a newborn - looking back that session it's awesome to see how much these kiddos have grown in a year and a half.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE photographing this family - so when grandma contacted me last December to purchase a gift certificate for a session as their christmas gift from her I was SO excited. Laid back, go-with-the-flow, hanging out at home sessions are my favorite!  

Roll 11 - Fuji 400H | June 2016

Another roll of Fuji 400H in the books - but unlike the first roll I shot, these ones just didn't pop for me.  I still LOVE them, a lot, but it is definitely a different overall feeling.  And I realized that the QUALITY of important here.  A lot of the ones that I am not feeling completely were shot in very low light, or flat light, or almost no light.  And that's ok - but now I know what to expect in the future!
