Cindy Lee: field of dreams

I love the colors of this family session sent in by Cindy Lee Photography. Color is key for me. It really draws me in and makes me happy. I am super sensitive to color and it really affects me. That may be why I love film and how the color comes back from the lab just as I saw it.

That said I will admit, I saw The Dress as white and gold (so my color is very subjective).

Jen J Photo: quiet little newborn

Jen J Photo sent in this gorgeous San Francisco newborn session. She shot it at the client’s home and used mostly film. I love her use of light and the compositions.

Newborn sessions are so quiet, especially when the newborn is the first child. It’s such a change of pace from family sessions where the kids are wild and running. It reminds me of the quiet time when my babies were first born and the house is quiet and we are staying home a lot. I miss those days sometimes.

From Jen J Photo:

“Not knowing how the light would be in the home and still getting my feet wet with film, I opted to shoot it hybrid. I sent the film and files both to the FIND lab and they worked their magic! Although they try to match the digital files to the film ones, I found the I liked the film ones much better. I shot with Fuji 400h on a Contax 645. All but two of the ones I’m sending are film.”
