moon, clouds, and olive branches at Spring Canyon Park in Fort Collins, Lisa O'Dwyer, fine art film photographer


For today’s Photo Friday, I selected two photographs from a family session that I did in October. This session was in Spring Canyon Park in Fort Collins and was originally blogged here.

When I am photographing people, I always like to stop and take in the surroundings of the place too. What does the sky look like? What kinds of trees and flowers are around? What season is it? If I am creating a wall collection for the family, I might use one of these natural setting photographs to set the scene and add cohesion.

I love the simple elegance of classic black and white photography. These two photographs were taken with Arista Premium 400 film and on a 35mm camera.
