Hello! My name is Caryn and I’m a photographer living in the Southern California mountains not far from Palm Springs.
This blog is my sketchpad, a visual journal of my life, and the engine that propels me down my creative path. It also tends to be a rather eclectic affair, dominated by my Canon 70D while also reflecting my enthusiasm for vintage cameras.
I often share my adventures in film photography (including my home-darkroom experiments) with my beloved Polaroids (SX-70 and Spectra both), a Brownie Hawkeye, a Yashica Mat, and an old Canon SLR I picked up on eBay all well represented. And, as a firm believer in the modern adage that the best camera is the one you have with you, you’ll find I’m not shy about posting the occasional iPhone snap.
If you spend any time here at all, you’ll soon notice that the images I post are eclectic and often experimental in nature. To view a curated collection of my best work please visit my website: www.CarynGilbert.com
Your comments are welcome and appreciated. Thanks so much for stopping by!
P.S. I hang out on Instagram quite a bit and post iPhone images there almost daily (most of which are not crossposted here). I also have a Tumblr blog dedicated exclusively to my film photography. And, finally, to connect with me via Facebook click here. Thanks again for visiting! :-)
