Today I shot the beginnings of my first ever personal photography project. It was thrilling, challenging, and exhausting. I came home completely satisfied and pooped.
I saw two people who I think are quite awesome. And I got a peak into their souls. They were generous enough to share. I am so grateful.
And now I wait for my two rolls of 120mm Kodak Portra 160 film to be processed.
It was an odd feeling coming home after a photo shoot and not instantly downloading the images, editing, and posting them on Facebook. Yet I found something strangely satisfying about knowing I did my best, and now I wait for the outcome. Swan printers have mercy on my film! It feels like shooting with film focuses more on the process than the product, which is amazingly fitting given that I'm looking at this project as an analytical reflection on the manifestation of God in our souls through our faces.
May I be granted eyes to see...when the time comes and the film is returned processed.
