film & fourth year

Dru-1 Horses-1 Me-1a few favorites from a roll of film i’ve had in my camera for a few months now! dru actually just bought a scanner, so now we’ll be able to have all of our negatives uploaded and in a much better quality than the discs we’ve been getting from walmart. much better!

on another note… my fourth year project has been ordered!

(panic totally ensued typing that).

but seriously, that’s it, that’s all, its done, and there’s no making changes now. such a weird feeling! i just need to stop second guessing choices in the mean time. it was hard to narrow down what i’ve been up to and i would never be able to include everything that i would like (i’m a bit nonstalgic for shake face right now) but my teachers and few friends i’ve had to get opinions from have been supportive of what has been put together. so, i think i’m going to be really happy with it! only 29 days until the show, and the days to no more classes count… 16!

hope everyone’s having a good week!

much love,

Preview-4 Preview-3 Preview-1 Preview-1-2it might have been (absolutely freezing) out but it sure looked pretty! these guys were troopers letting me drag them to a few places around the city, and i couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. hope you like!

time lapse

Time Lapse-1a frame from a time lapse we’ve been working on since last term!

it’s been so cold since christmas i haven’t managed to get out a whole lot, and i still have some images on my camera waiting for an upload but its just been editing central lately.

hope everyone had a good weekend!

much love,

woody point travels

its no surprise my car is just about photo road trip away from 18,000 kms. although after only getting it new on june 1, you’d think that number would be a little smaller! but call it taking advantage of this beautiful province, there’s no such thing as a wasted drive. just call it location scouting! (it helps justify all that gas money too).

the two above film photos are from a road trip out to woody point a few weeks ago. we definitely showed up in an off season – galliott studios was closed, whaat – but will be going back next summer for sure. it’s such a beautiful little place!

i can’t recommend enough for people to pick up some film though. borrow a film camera from someone, or dig one out of the back of a parent or grandparent’s closet. even if it’s been sitting there for 20 years, i bet you 20 dollars it still works. film is the best.

much love,

double exposure loving (as per usual)

i’m so never going to get tired of double exposures. the top one is an exposure of dru while we were out location scouting one saturday, and the bottom photo is an exposure of some leaves down the bay over my hippy purse (awesome bag, I broke one once and went out and bought its twin to replace it). picking up film is seriously like picking up presents. presents you have to pay for, but presents either way!

on another note, anyone have a suggestion for productivity or general alert-ness other than caffeine? today was an unfortunate sleep in, double expresso latte, energy drink, candy attempt at staying awake which have all so far not helped a whole lot. you know your ready to graduate university when!

much love,

candace

Long Weekend Love

I’ve been so busy with photos lately, in the past two weeks I’ve gotten to do two engagement sessions, a convocation session, and also my first smash the cake which was definitely a success! We also got the chance to do some night photos for May 2-4, and the stars were amazing. I find that it looks like their hanging off the trees.

After all of those photos and a good few BBQ’s (and food comas) later, it was an awesome long weekend for sure. Hope everyone else enjoyed the break!

Much love,

Candace ❤

film is the best

as much as i love my digital camera (which i honestly dearly do) there’s still something about film i frigging love. maybe its because you have to be so much more careful because “spraying and praying” isn’t really an option. you have 24 shots, and by the time you get the film back guaranteed your always surprised at a few frames whether you forgot you shot it or love how it turned out.

that being said, i just had three 35mm colored rolls developed yesterday after shooting off two rolls of hasselblad film for a school project. massive thanks to dru and reo for being such cooperative subjects! film is the best for sure. you can’t fake that kind of grain!

much love,

candace
