california, rest in peace

hey hey again!

I got back from my california adventure last week, and this evening I got the best. email. ever: my color film scans came in! i shot two and a half rolls in cali, one on the same bw porta 400 as last blog post, and 1.5 using kodak gold 200.

My dear friend Carolina, who I’ve photographed numerous times before, just came back from a semester abroad in Ecuador and we met up to do yet another shoot last week.

Per her request, this shoot was fitness themed! Carolina brought along several outfit changes and accessories such as water bottles, watches, and jackets, and I brought my AirPods.

We shot at Gravelly Point Park
