It’s time to grow and for me it feels natural to merge my two loves, lingerie and film photography. This goes way back to my teen years where I spent much of it in dark rooms and playing with analog cameras. I remember the first camera I picked up, which is the same camera I’m using today and it makes me feel so nostalgic.
Since the flame has been re-ignited I’ve been going through film like they we’re giving it out for free! It is a labor of love, expensive but highly rewarding. It seems that I am drawn to expensive things. But lingerie and film really do go hand in hand.
Here are some of my favourites pictures using 35mm and instant film from a few months ago.
Photography was something I was passionate about up until the digital age. I’ve always tried to get into digital photography but I didn’t seem to get much satisfaction out of it. There just wasn’t anything magical about taking 100+ photos and deleting them if they weren’t any good. Film makes me channel my creative energy, think about the the frame and create a mood. Then there is the excitement of waiting for the rolls to be developed and unfold what magic has been captured. It feels good to claim back the love lost for this medium.
It all started by taking snaps of my friends behind the scenes on a photo shoot we were on together. The photos turned out pretty cute and I thought “Hey, I had so much fun behind the camera so why not try to make something out of it?” All you need is a little love to get things started.
So here I am two years later and I’ve finally shot my first muse. If you’d like to keep up to date on all the magic I’ll be sharing some of my pictures on Instagram @ashlee.analog
I’ll also be posting my progress and sharing my photo shoots with you on here so stay tuned!
Have a wondrous weekend lovelies!
