THOUGHTS-FOR-A-FRIDAY

martha stewart’s DIY Precious Diamonds Family Tree.

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?

designlovefeast-ipad-wallpaper

designlovefest’s screen saver ‘dress your tech’.

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.

new-iphone-app-photolettering

• 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.

hilda-grahnat

i love film, by hilda grahnat.

• 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.

photographic-prints

dodge and burn’s ‘the Evolution TLR’ serigraph; and BROWNIE HAWKEYE print by Jenny Long.

• 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?

camera-straps

pretty camera straps from bloom theory.

• 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.

  1. My husband is a photographer and in college we spent a lot of time in the darkroom. He works for a newspaper and when they dismantled the darkroom it was a sad day. I used to love the smell of the chemicals-it was such a comforting smell. Sigh—
