Purdy Girl's Birthday and a Film Experiment

A man once told me that a serious professional can make cheap look good. Now many people say things like that all the time, but some of those people are correct. So I decided to experiment with some cheap film instead of the pro-grade stuff to find out if what he said was true. 

Here is a look at my family building a play set for my niece. I took one of my favorite film cameras and some dirt cheap film to experiment. (Fugi 400 X-tra)

What did I learn?

I learned that ole guy was right. It doesn’t matter what kind of tools that you have. Cheap film or pro-grade film. It doesn’t matter. As long as you love what you are doing, you know what you are doing, and you take the time to do it right, the results will be fantastic. It’s not the tools after all that are doing the creating, it’s you.
