I bring out my Not homemade Polaroid, and with imagination ( plus the […]
The “rolls royce” of darkroom printing. Wedding Portrait Shot on Ilford 8×10 black and white film. We shot in the photostudio with the 8×10 camera.

SANTA ANA, CA… Santa Ana courthouse wedding shot on 35mm film. Kodak vision 3 cinema film now available in 35mm film!
