Starved Rock

A few friends and I visited Illinois’ Starved Rock State Park earlier this month. We planned for the trip from Chicago weeks in advance, and while we didn’t consider rain we made the best of the experience. Nobody melted and I managed to get some shots I really liked.

All images were taken with the Canon AE-1 using Kodak Portra 400, and edited in Lightroom.

Portra 400

My friend Mike gifted me his parents’ Canon AE-1 back in August. Before that, I’d never truly shot with a film camera, save for some here-and-there with a “disposable” back in the day.

After a bit of research on film brands and types, and how to use the camera, I purchased five rolls of 35mm Kodak Portra 400. Below are some of my favorite images from the first two.
