A few more photos of my grandmother from our trip to Norfolk. She is 92 years and every time I visit I try to take as many photos as I possibly can (although she hates being photographed). Shot with Pentax Spotmatic + 35mm Asahi lens on Kodak 400CN film
I found two rolls of film that I shot over the last couple of months but was too busy to process. These were shot with Canon Canonet QL17 on Kodak Tri-X 400 and Canon Elan 7 on Kodak 400CN
My grandmother Olga is 93 years old, soon to be 94. She is an amazing woman and one of the most important people in my life. Even though I talk to her on the phone about 3 times a week, I only get to see her 2-3 times a year. Every time I take the drive from Pittsburgh to Norfolk, I promise myself that I will take a ton of photos of her; when I get to Norfolk I get caught up in shuttling my kids between my mom and my dad, doing family things and essentially not taking any photos of my grandmother. This time I actually managed to stick with my intentions and over the last week I shot over a thousand digital frames of my grandmother and 4 rolls of film. About half of the photos below were shot with a Canon 5D Mark III and processed with VSCO presets. The rest were shot on Kodak 400 CN pushed to 800.
All of these photos were taken at the Children’s museum. Shot on film, Canon Elan 7E, 28mm f/2.8 and 50mm f/1.4, Kodak 400CN
I decided to go to the North Side at 6 AM to get some night shots of Pittsburgh on black and white film. All these photographs were shot on Kodak 400CN film with a Canon Elan 7E camera and a 50mm f/1.4 lens. Some of the exposures were as long as 15 seconds. All photos are straight out of the camera – I did not edit them at all.
