becoming.a.beginner - fort collins portrait photographer

{My beginner softballer: this is Lily's first season playing on a REAL, LIVE softball team.  Go Team Lily!!!
This new beginning of hers?  Captured on Kodak Portra 160 VC with a Nikon N70}

Here are a few more images from the first roll of film I've shot in years (nine or ten, maybe?).   Crazy thing is ... it's been so long I've lost count.  I love the look of film {aaah, the softness! the grain!}, but it's also challenging me in very new and different ways.  Around the same time I was working through some of that challenge and frustration, I came across the following quote:

"You can learn new things at any time in your life if you're willing to be a beginner.
If you actually learn to like being a beginner, the whole world opens up to you."
{Barbara Sher}

Great reminder.  Expect to see more film exploration from me {Just so ya know, I'm counting on YOU to hold me to it.}.  It's allowing me to become a beginner again and I have this teeny tiny feeling that there all sorts of good things to be had in that.
