Welcome to Colorado Springs Daily Photo!

Hi, I'm Tamera, a professional wedding, portrait and boudoir photographer in Colorado Springs. But this blog isn't about my professional work; no, it's a daily love note to my beautiful city, where I've lived for most of my life. I love it here and I hope you enjoy seeing Colorado Springs through my eyes and lens!

Playing with film

It's been at least a year since I've shot film. I was a late adapter to digital, holding out until 2006 before I made the switch, but it was a startlingly fast (and wistful) transition; my film cameras very quickly found themselves gathering dust in a corner of my studio. Ever since, I've rarely used film, but lately I've become interested in it again -- because it is just so beautiful! Look at this picture I took last weekend in Denver, of the large Swiss clock in front of the REI store in the Riverfront/Lodo neighborhood. I had to do absolutely nothing to it to make it look this rich and gorgeous. It came out of the camera looking beautiful, all I did was get rid of a few dust spots in Photoshop and straighten the image.

I'll post a few more beautiful film images tomorrow, if I have time. Have a great Saturday, everyone!

I feel nostalgic for film, too, but even more because I sold my old film cameras....shoulda kept 'em.

This photo is a beautiful example of film's qualities.

It's a beautiful shot. I'm a late convert to digital too.
