Im on my way

So the last weekend my husband and I hosted our first photo walk and it was a blast. I always enjoy walking around downtown and capturing the beauty on film. Normally we shoot on our Canon DSLR but we decided to be adventurous and tried out hand at black and white film. Earlier in the summer my husband had stumbled upon an Yashika-Mat film camera at an antique store in town. Unsure if it even work he decided to purchase it, and much to our delight the camera worked perfectly. I have come to realize though I am definitely spoiled with my digital camera, film has a large learning curve. Here are a few pictures from our walk…

This picture was taken at our town Farmers market. The pumpkins really had me in the holiday spirit and the colors were so inviting and inspiring.

Continuing with my fall theme I stumbled upon this rusted old fence and it seemed reminiscent to me of an acorn.

Of, course it wouldn’t be a trip to downtown Waco without taking at least one picture of the suspension bridge, so as cliche as it was I went for it. I did like how the sky turned out.

I was really happy with the way my film turned out for our antique store find. I really enjoyed tweaking the images in Photoshop once I received the disk of the negatives. Needless to say, I really enjoyed the challenge of my film camera but Im also looking forward to the new awesome images I’m going to be taking.

  1. Well done Ash! I am interested in your photo walk. Can you please explain to me what that means? How many people attended? I would love to see more pictures!

    • I photo walk really just consist of several (could as many as want to tag along) people going to a location and taking pictures as they explore. Normally there is an experienced photographer there to answer questions for anyone needing answers. Its a fun time, you never know what pictures you will end up with at the end of the day.
