Shooting My First Roll of 35mm Film by Christian Hernandez

A few weeks ago, I decided to purchase a film camera for a couple of reasons: To learn a new medium, stretch my creativity, and have fun continuing to learn and pursue photography. Until now, I only had experience shooting digital. With digital, you really have an unlimited amount of photos you can take - you’re only really limited by the size of your memory card. The camera will continue to shoot so long as you have battery and storage space. Film photography has a different look and feel than digital, but in addition to the aesthetics, film forces the photographer to be more careful and methodical compared to digital photography.

My Year in Photography - 2018 by Christian Hernandez

I never set goals. Believe me - at the beginning of the year, nor at any other point in the year do I set goals. But since I now had time to think about what I wanted the rest of my year to look like, I set some goals for my business back in May. Since then, I’m surprised at how many of those I’ve been fortunate to have achieved. By God’s grace and provision, and with the support of my family and friends, I have thankfully been able to check several of those off my list. Here are 4 that I’m really proud of.
