A Stittsville wedding and portrait photographer is taking a lesser-walked path for her photography.

For Kristin Davis it’s all down to the basics: black and white film and prints which she develops in her darkroom. She says the clients who like that black and white style really love the finished work.

She began taking photos while at South Carleton High School and fell in love with the process and the texture that black and white photography gave her. Mentored by Ottawa photographer Len Ward she has been working in the black and white medium for several years now.

Kristin uses mostly Ilford film and paper that is available locally but she says with the Canadian dollar being so low, some of her U.S. online supplies have become very expensive.

She has attended art in the park shows to get her work out there and is already booking wedding for this summer but since some clients want colour photos as well she has to bring along a second photographer to those events.

When not out taking photos on film she is studying neurosciences at Carleton University.  You can see more of her photos on her web site at www.kmdfilmphotography.com.
