aloha #throwbackthursday , book nerds 🥰 your girl @tediously_brief here today is the official mid-way point between @jesyelyse and my birthdays, so i wanted to honor it with one of my favorite memories of ours, our @cmbyn_locations northern italian road trip pilgrimage with our copies of @acimanandre ’s book and digital copies of @cmbynfilm. not entirely sure how we managed to get this wide shot of the alley oliver walks elio to grab water when he gets sick after oliver drunkenly dances by the cathedral with a lady they pass by without any people in the background. usually in order to get a shot like this without using photoshop, it’s all about getting somewhere early. i can’t remember how late we were out, it was fairly dark. it probably helped that it was an alley way, but the main takeaway is plan your locations ahead of time, figure out the frame you want, then it’s all about the waiting game. patience is the reigning mood supreme. being a group helps. it’s fun chatting, joking around, and laughing while we wait. it lightens the mood and makes for a better photo. these days i’m all about setting up my shot, testing my lighting, adjusting my settings, and waiting for the perfect moment. i don’t take as many frames anymore because i wait for the shot i want. i guess it makes sense that now i’ve become more and more intrigued by film 🎞 again, and as a gift to myself i just bought some 15mm & 35mm point and shoots as a birthday gift to myself! a lot of my digital edits are purposefully edited to evoke a filmy quality to them, but going forward i hope to incorporate more of my real film photography into my feed as well! i grabbed a bunch of film in tokyo on my last trip home to japan last april, and am especially excited to experiment with the porta 400. .
lmk if you have any fav film you recommend i play with!
who’s excited for @acimanandre ’s #cmbyn sequel FIND ME out October 2019?
