cadaqués, may 2012

another dip into the long lost rolls of film! this roll was a total mystery until i got it processed at The Darkroom last month. as if i were traveling through time itself, these images brought back a flood of memories from that trip to Cadaqués six years ago. this is one of the most beautiful places i have ever visited and i must go back and stay awhile as soon as i am able. considering how much i love shooting in color, i appreciate the choice i made to shoot black and white for these photographs.

another round of film

been shooting a lot more lately, even dusted off the ol’ hasselblad thanks to these rolls of film. the more i process, the more excited i am about every shot i take. working on a lot of personal projects as well as a photo essay that i am contributing!! it’s scary / exciting and i need to just let go of my perfectionism, embrace whatever happens, and jump in.

beach day

one of my pals from abroad was visiting los angeles en route to shanghai back in early october and we had the most perfect day at venice beach. ❤

all photos shot by miss lisa g. french / holga 120s and kodak portra 160 film.

desert daze

at last, a few of my favorite images from desert daze this past october. i shot these with my trusty lil’ holga 120s and kodak portra 160 film. in hindsight, because i am always trying to improve / experiment with techniques, i should have brought a second camera for lower light conditions. i lost a few shots where i didn’t have enough light, but the ones i got are pretty awesome. see more from desert daze and twentynine palms here!

rediscovered photography

this spring, i started to process some old, forgotten rolls of film that had been laying around gathering dust. so far, i’ve sent out 9 “mystery rolls” to be processed (thanks to The Darkroom) — all medium format film that i shot with my beloved hasselblad 500cm in 2011/2012 so far.

it’s been…a lot to experience. memories i had hidden away, travels i forgot about completely, etc. it is all part of a bigger idea, a show i want to put together of my photography work over the last 15 years. oh, the secrets that lie ahead in rolls of film i have yet to process! just a couple of weeks ago, i found proof sheets for 4 rolls of film from 2011 that i shot and forgot. needless to say, there will be a lot of those to show in the days and weeks to come. i’ll have prints available soon and hopefully i can get this website finished before the end of the year, too.

here goes nothin!
