- Toby's Estate. 08-12-2014 -
EARLIER THIS PAST summer, you might recall that I took a short trip to NYC. Feels like a lifetime ago, but this morning, I'm excited to finally share a few film photos I took in the city! Eye-pleasing perfectly swirled latte art is, but the remains will always be my favorite. What used to be a steaming mocha and cortado at Toby's Estate in the Flatiron district above, and below: mornings at one of my very favorite cafe's in Manhattan- the Grand Cafe Lafayette.
Safe to say, I've come a long way since my desire to solely shoot still life on film. Or rather, solely the 'pretty' and 'placed' in life. Several months have passed since then, and I've become more comfortable with this film camera. The levers, the dials, the weight of the camera feels more natural, less like an intimidating machine, and more like a visual extension of myself. And never have I found a medium of photography so rewarding. I've also shared my experience (and a few tips) for shooting with film on Apartment 34- find more words and photos here!
