I'm so excited to be offering film sessions on my vintage Canonet 28! The Canonet 28 is rangefinder film camera from the late 1960s-early 1970s. I bought it used and have done a couple of sessions with it for fun, shot a roll at Sloss Fest, and have been using to document my normal life goings-on. The photos from these sessions will not be perfect, but they will show movement and have beautiful colors and grain that can only be captured with film. Keep reading below for more info
What to expect
Canonet sessions will be $350. Once you are ready to book, we will have a discussion about what you want your shoot to be like and where you want the location to be. We will shoot one roll of film and you can pick if you want color film or black and white film. Turnaround time for these photos is much longer than turnaround for digital sessions. I send my film to a lab in Montgomery it is scanned and then photos are emailed back to me. Once I get the photos back, I will upload them to a digital gallery where you will be able to download them to your computer. These sessions are meant to be fun, creative, and maybe a little outside of the box. They are perfect for couple photos, head shots, or friend group photos. I do not recommend this session for family portraits. Film sessions take longer than digital sessions and can be frustrating for children. If you want to book a Canonet session, just head over to my contact page and shoot me an email!
The film of my choice for color photos is Portra 400. I feel the colors just can't be beat. If you want a vibrant, rich session, go with a roll of color film!
Black & White Film
The film of my choice for black and white photos is Ilford HP5 Plus 400. It's got that really great grain going on that comes to mind when you think of film. If you want a classic, timeless look for session, go black and white!
