A couple local photographers here in Fairbanks started a group called Clarity + Grain so those of us who love taking photos can get together. Their first meet-up was in April up at Murphy Dome (it takes awhile to get up there, but the views are so worth it). I took these two goobers with me and getting them up and down the trail was a challenge; all they wanted to do was play in the snow instead of actually walking. We made it though, and we had a blast!
I love shooting film but it took a back seat over the past few years as I dealt with hard pregnancies and babies. But now that my kids are getting older I’m taking the time to slow down and use my film cameras again, and I decided to only take film with me up there (I’m a hybrid shooter so usually take both film and digital). I’m thrilled with the way the snow retained it’s detail (thank you film!) and love the punches of color from the boys’ snow gear. It feels so good to back at it!
