Canon AE-1 and Kodak Portra 400 35mm Film Photography Creative Portrait Session

Today, we’re featuring a beautiful set of portraits from film photographer Alexandra Phillips. Here are a few words from Alexandra about creating these images…

Nika (@nikaburnett) and I explored the beautiful soft light in her Hollywood apartment, and then wandered near her backyard lemon tree. We also explored her neighborhood for some shaded light. I love this mode of photography, where you just meet up with a friend and hang out, but there happens to be a few cameras involved. We weren’t trying to break any ground with photography, but we flexed our creative muscles and searched for some nice light. It is so refreshing to be able to make art without any expectations and deadlines. That is my favorite thing about shooting film – I usually do it just for myself. I think you can tell from the photos that we just had a good day and took some nice pictures.
