All images by Sachin Khona, Vancouver Portrait Photographer
Vancouver Film Portrait Photographer
Film is something else. I don’t know how to explain it but I’m very excited by it, especially for my portrait work. To get to know my client, slow down, connect and then shoot, on another level entirely, is a beautiful experience. I shot a lot of film on my trip to India and through that experience I definitely felt I was growing as a photographer.
At the time of me writing this, I have no idea if any of the images even came out ok, whether they were affected by all the airport X-Ray machines that my bag and film rolls went through on the trip. But I know that I enjoyed the experience so much and remember exactly the feeling I had when I pressed the shutter for certain images. Those images are in my head (‘visual clicks’) but hopefully, the images do come out and I’ll be able to share them with you .. soon.
Big thanks goes to two people. My friend and awesome film photographer Michael Wachniak who helped me fix my broken Mamiya when it arrived and showed me the ropes when I had no idea what the hell I was doing .. and to Chris Bodnar who I had the pleasure of meeting on a trip down to Toronto in October.
Chris runs Caribou Film Lab and processes/develops/scans 80% of the film you see in this post. Chris works his magic, gives great feedback and works his butt off for you. Having this level of customer service is rare and I appreciate his help a lot during this year of shooting film again. If you’re shooting film, and are looking for a great lab, Chris is your guy.
I’m definitely looking to shoot more sessions in 2014 on film, so if you’re interested in a session, use the contact form above to drop me a message or click HERE. Sessions start at $500.
