Contributor | Analogue Celebrities
Hi all! I'm Laura from BOOKM▲▲RKS and I'm very excited to be a contributor on Here Comes The Sun this year where I'll be sharing some findings and inspirations on film photography. More and more people start to go back to analogue because of its different imperfection such as the vignette, the noise, the blur or light leaks that are considered as beauty, which is what makes analogue different to digital. To get you in the mood, today I'd like to share with you a few showcases of film photographs taken by celebrities.
It really is not a surprise that Sofia takes amazing pictures. Her typical style of movies usually have those beautiful stills and quiet scenes which are just perfect for nice photography settings and she's definitely got the eye for it.
Elijah Wood with his lomo LC-A+
Here are just a few snap shots that Elijah took over his trip to Baja, California. Apparently Elijah has been a lomographer for years! It's really fun to go through his personal photographs and see that a celeb's normal day to day life is not always glamourus, they too can have fun the way we do. See more of Elijah's photos here
Angelina Jolie shot by Brad Pitt
I'm really happy that I come across this personal collection of Jolie's black and white portraits taken by Mr Pitt himself! These photos were first made public exclusively on W Magazine and even made it to their cover. I didn't know that Brad Pitt has interests in photography before, I mean, look how amazing these photos are. See more photos here.
So that's all I've got for today. I know there are other celebs who are using analogue such as Audrey Tautou, Elle Fanning or Alexa Chung but I've never really come across the actual photos taken by them. Have you spotted any other celebs? Hope this inspires you. I for sure one who will try to take my film cameras out more this year and just shoot. See you next time!
