Today, we are heading to New York City with film photographer Kim Hildebrand! Kim captured exactly what it feels like to visit NYC. Her film images are alive with the bright colors and movement of the city. Here are a few words from Kim about her trip to New York City:
Over Labor Day weekend, my daughter, mom, and I went to New York City for a long girls weekend. It was my daughter’s first time there, and we had a blast showing her the sites! We stayed in Times Square and did a lot of sight-seeing and exploring. We checked out all the main attractions: ate dinner in Little Italy, went to a Broadway play, shopped, and walked into a Brazilian parade and celebration. Ella loved the city, and we are already planning our next trip in a couple years!
During the trip, I took my 35mm Canon 1-V everywhere. I mostly used Portra 400 rated at 400. For the night photography, I rated it at 800 and pushed one stop in development. I thoroughly enjoyed trying to catch the energy and hustle and bustle that is NYC by slowing my shutter speed to capture movement. All film developed and scanned by RPL.
