Film Is Not Dead, Los Angeles : Part 1 – Portraits

We’ve long admired the soft graceful look of film, the way it beautifully captures color and the way that shooting it forces us to be more intentional artists. In January we had an amazing opportunity to hang out in sunny SoCal and attend a Film Is Not Dead Workshop with Jonathan Canlas.  FIND LA was a breath of fresh air, not only for our business but also for us personally!  We spent 3 days staying in a rad vacation home in West Hollywood, meeting awesome new photographer friends, eating fabulous food, cramming our brains with (almost) everything there is to know about film and playing outside, shooting roll after roll after roll! Not only did this experience demystify film for us but it also opened our eyes to a lot of amazing strategies to make our business more sustainable. We felt truly welcomed into a community of supportive film-loving photographers that extends far beyond the the three days we spent together in person. Perhaps the biggest thing we took away was the importance of making time for personal work, of really seeing and composing, and of finding our voices as artists.  It was such a blessing for us to get away and gain new perspectives in our work.  We would recommend this to photographers new and old, anyone who wants to learn to love or deepen their love of shooting film!
