thoughts for a friday.
you know me. i love all things photo-related. from high-tech apps like instagram and after light to a twin lens reflex — i am smitten. i actually learned to take photos in high school on a twin lens reflex, developing the film and making prints in the classroom darkroom. talk about old school. but i loved the smell of those chemicals and the magic of burning and dodging (more on that subject down the post). my thoughts for a friday share a few updates on an old classic. i don’t think photography will ever get old, do you?
• designlovefest was recently kind enough to offer a free ipad wallpaper designed by the weaver house featuring a plethora of vintage cameras. so pretty, right? get that ipad dressed up pronto-like. she offers these wallpapers up on a regular basis — here’s some from the archives.
• oh no. uh-oh. another new time suck. but i love it nonetheless. photolettering is a new app from house industries that lets you add type to your photos. much like over which i also love, but with a bunch of their own cool house fonts. i’m already addicted. a few fonts are free, but some additional fonts for photolettering are 99¢. C’est la vie.
• you can send me anything hilda grahnat puts her very talented hands on. i love this woman’s photography so very much — her lighting, what is her trick? simply sublime. her collection of cameras and how she’s captured them is no different. this is just perfection.
• maybe you like to hang your love of photography — create your own little shrine! i like this quote from photographer dorothea lange featured on this brownie hawkeye print by jenny long on society6. i also quite like this very graphic screen print from dodge and burn ‘the Evolution TLR’. this Screen-printed print features fifteen meticulously drafted classic twin lens reflex cameras and it comes in silver and red, too. handsome, no?
• now these, my shutterbug friends, are some pretty snappy camera straps. made by bloom theory straps, they come in an array of very attractive textiles. i’ve shared these before, but i think they deserve another shout out. feminine and fashionable — your neck in bloom.
