No, the Utah Film Photography website is not abandoned. During the final months of 2019, I had a few of what I would label “positive life changing events.” And then Covid-19, stay-at-home and social distancing guidelines occurred. That’s why the site has gone so long without regular updates. Plus, I’ve delayed writing this post because I hate talking about myself.
Life changing events? One occurred in September when I had gastric bypass surgery. It’s one of the hardest things I’ve ever done, but it is the best thing I’ve ever done for my health. I have lost 100+ lbs. I look and feel fantastic! And feeling great has changed my approach to photography because I have the energy to get out and shoot. It’s interesting how personal issues, like weight and food in my case, can hold creativity hostage.
This year is the fifth birthday of Utah Film Photography. A much-needed facelift is needed to the website. In the coming months, you can expect some changes to the look of the site. While some people are referring to 2020 as a dumpster fire, I’m staying positive. There are so many cameras and films that I want to experience this year. Stay tuned, stay safe, and go take some cool film photos!
