    I’m sorry if you’ve answered these dozens of times, but I have two questions: do you develop your own film? And what scanner do you use?

    I abandoned film due to a lack of resource (and budget) and I’d like to start investigating it again.

    And, as always, beautiful photos.

    thank you! i don’t develop my own film, i send it out to a photo lab nearby. and for scanning, i use a canon 8800f scanner. I’ve heard good things about the epson v700 though! : )

    This is so lovely. I enjoy the simplicity of the images and the contrast of the black and white film (i.e. it’s not just all “grayed out” like some b&w photos can be).

    I love these. You have such a lovely connection with the ocean.

      thank you : ). it’s strange because i’d never go to the ocean when we lived in hawai’i.

        i did a few years ago, but now with school i can’t find the time. plus, i’m lazy. haha. it’s relatively easy once you get the hang of it. you also get a great sense of satisfaction seeing the whole photographic process all the way through to development. wine + development + mellow music… sounds pretty nice, actually. :)

    These are all SO right in black and white. They show the ocean in all its truth, you know? Nice.
