Josie and Birthday Cake!

Josie and Birthday Cake!, originally uploaded by spakulsk.

I am a big promoter of using film. I like the way film looks. I like the excitement on when a roll is developed and opening the envelope to see what was inside. So, I was shooting some of Josie’s birthday party on Sunday with my Nikon N90s 35mm film SLR. I found like 50 rolls of Fujifilm Fujicolor 100 film on eBay for $10. So, I was using up some of the cheap film. But the image here is spectacular! Josie is enjoying her birthday cake at her one year old birthday fest. I love the film look of this image. I love the fact that I captured her with cake in her mouth! Something that I didn’t do with my DSLR (a Nikon D90). So, there you go. My favorite image from the party was from a camera from the mid 1990’s. A single-lens reflex camera that I picked up for under $100. Hmm. Wow!
