This isn’t my best shot but it definitely is a memorable one. I remember planning a week ahead for this opportunity to shoot my favorite artist and when the day finally came that he was going to be in the bay I rushed to his pop up shop to the wait in line for about 6 hours. The only thing that worried me was that it was getting dark really fast and I had didn’t have a tripod but I really wanted a crisp picture, so I still waited just to maybe get a good one anyways. When Gerald arrived and started his signing a bright literally shined above him giving me the biggest relief ever since I knew I was going to get at least one solid picture, and when it was my turn to actually see him we shook hands and asked if I could take a couple pictures. And after that I filled up almost a whole roll in less than 30 seconds since I knew I was about to get kicked out, most shots were out of focus, blurry, or had no real depth but this one was the one. Still to this day I think about the day I took this since it means so much to me. December 13, 2016

    I think a lot of people shoot film for a different reason and I want to hear your reason for shooting analogue in a digital age. !!!

    this is my girlfriend. i love her. this photo is not from a photoshoot; its more like a candid. we wete just sitting in a park. we were both listening to the same song, off of two different iphones, at the same time, with two different earbuds. it took us like 15 tries to time it right. the way she looks at the camera/the person behind the camera, me, is what love looks like in someone else’s eyes, to me. i wonder if it looks the same to you. spec chat: i dont know how this came out crisp at f/1.4 on a 50mm at minimum focus distance, godbless ha. (yes this is film, Portra 400 shot on Minolta X-370) IG:@glutenfreetard
