PJ Photos - love it

Emily Heizer Photography - Film. I knew it had to be film. It’s too gorgeous not to be. Oh, woe is me! I have been falling more and more in love with fil every day for the last year- after six years of shooting only digital and I don’t even know a [functioning] film camera. I’ve shopped a little bit, but I’m so gun-shy. But I see images like this and.. I want that. I want that skill, that beauty. These are stellar. Of course, composition is everything, but film adds something extra you just can’t put your finger on until you know it’s there… I just love it. The use of negative space in this post is wonderful too. Brilliant.

Mark Dohring - Dan Dan Dan you are one hell of a talented man.

Sharolyn - Amazing. I can’t believe you even captured that little fox (or other cute creature). Incredible!

aga + marcin - This rocks! blown away by your talent, friend.

Britt Spring - Stunning :-)
