Birdcage Release is excited to create with clients in a new (yet old) way! Instagram, filters, vsco…it’s a revolution. Let’s buy a super expensive camera, take photos, and make everything look old. Well, how about instead-do it the natural way! In camera.
Specifically, toy cameras (an art form known as Lomography). Called toy camera due to their structure made out of plastic, which is what causes those ethereal light leaks and yesteryear stained tones. Limited amount of control adds a romanticism that comes out through the multiple exposures, and real film grain. All backed up by my fine-art trained eye. So it’s official, booking is now open for this exciting option.
This is yo’ grandma’s camera, but not yo’ grandma’s photos!
Amy + Jeremy were the first lucky couple to experience this off-beat way of documenting on their wedding day this September. It was perfect for this off-beat and unique couple. Amy is an ex-karaoke DJ, now art therapist and artist at Live Yes Studios, a community art place for adults with disabilities. Jeremy, owns a mobile coffeehouse (the only one in the midwest), Go Joe. Both innovative and creative, they were more than on board for this fun way to capture their day.
It was great working along side their digital photo and wedding photographer powerhouse that is Wax Robot. Bobbing in and out it was fun to work off of their energy and creative vision. All around between the lot of us, it was one of the most fun collaborations I have taken part in yet!
A + J chose to have a simple and quick ceremony (planned within a month) at the historic art deco-ed out Lincoln Capitol Building. They are planning on having a stylized reception next year~! Can’t wait to see what they create. If it is anything like the fun at their little house reception, it’s gonna be a blast! I’ll be there with my Smena 8m again for sure.
I love these two, and am so happy they found each other. Keep making Lincoln better you two! Oh wait! Me too!
