Sum up Sunday // My Week in Film

Ok, so that title is misleading because only partially the week was in film.  The rest was shot on this app called Hipstamatic D-Series.  This app is supposed to mimic the look & feel of a disposable camera.  You must take all 24 exposures before you can see how your pictures came out.  You can purchase different cameras with different effects.  Some look more like film than others.

Last weekend my family & I went to the Botanical Gardens to look at the flowers.  I went to Walgreens & got a few disposable cameras, trashed them, & took pictures.  Here are some of the results (be warned, its picture heavy!).

Tomorrow I'll tell you exactly what I did & how you can capture your summer on film!
I also brought along my Instax camera to play with.  My aunts thought it was pretty cool that there was a tiny polaroid like camera out there.  I'd take a photo & stick it in my pocket to wait for it to develop.  I didn't look at them all until the end of the day.  What a nice surprise riding home in the car!

These final images are from the Hipstamatic D-Series app. Tomorrow I'll share my favorite 'cameras' available through the app.  I love that you have to take all 24 exposures before you see them.  I downloaded it a while ago, probably before Christmas & I just shot away just to see how the pictures would turn out.  That ruins the fun though so this time I shot with purpose & loved the results!

I used this app at the gardens & during the week when we were all hanging out on Sunday and for Katie's birthday.

This week was also a week of big moving decisions.  I looks like I will be moving at the end of July but we aren't sure where we'll be moving to.  I don't quite want to move in with his brother & him but I don't quite want to move into his parent's house either, though of the two options that's the one I'd pick. I am not quite sure we are ready to buy a house but if we start renting we won't be able to hook up the kiln & I'd really like to be able to continue working in clay & not wait forever to do so.  We've found a house we really like but I'm not sure if we're ready for that step! Sheesh, being young is hard right?

I guess we'll just have to keep working at it.  His boss is going to take the time to discuss houses with him & the best areas to live in tomorrow.  So hopefully that will give us some insight.

I've also been working on blog designs, etc & want to add a few more designs in the shop but just haven't gotten around to it.  If you're interested in a custom design, I am just wrapping one up so I'd love to take on another project.  Shoot me an email if you're interested!  I've also got open studio this afternoon & am soooo excited! I can't wait to throw some more & see if what I've glazed has come out fo the kiln yet! woooo hooo!

Hope you're having a lovely weekend!
