Anonymous said: Have you ever shot with Fuji Superia 1600? It's insane!


i only have ever shot 400 iso film with my 35mm slr

Anonymous said: do you use a light meter when shooting with the A-1? or do you use the built in meter? Your portraits looks so perfectly exposed.

built in meter!!!

last week i was at the botanic garden with my friend and he was using an external light meter and i asked him what the fck he was holding

i had never seen one in my entire life until like seven days ago

Anonymous said: Do you ever use a digital SLR? My problem is that DSLRs are easier to use but the photos never feel as real as film.

yeah i use my DSLR pretty frequently

i don’t like it nearly as much as film but

it’s cool sometimes i guess. i just have to edit the photos a lot

Anonymous said: How did you meet Dennis?

he liked my work and followed me on tumblr when i was a freshman in high school. we lived in the same suburb and had a mutual friend named samantha who modeled for us both at the time and she thought it would be a good idea for the three of us to shoot together sometime so we did and dennis and i have been pretty much in love since then. he’s one of my bestestestest friends ever.

Anonymous said: Which 35mm film do you use the most? Which one is your all time favorite? I love Portra 😊

i loveee porta but it’s just not my style. shot with it once and was like, wow, this looks so nice. but it doesn’t look like my work. too fine grain for my taste i think.

i use kodak ultramax or fujifilm superia the most i think.

Anonymous said: I really like the look of your scans. What scanner do you use?

i really don’t know. i’ve used like ten different scanners. sometimes i use my dad’s, i use my friends’ scanners a lot too so. i don’t have my own at the moment.

Anonymous said: Do you develop your own 35mm film?

no never

Anonymous said: What kind of processing do you usually do with your film? Do you do any digital color correct?
