What I Wore: The Golden Hour In Palm Springs

I have a total obsession with Palm Springs and a big part of that is because of the light. Yes, the light. I am fascinated with the golden glow of the desert — it’s the compete opposite of the usually overcast, cool light we get in Portland for most of the year.

While I was in Palm Springs with The Blogcademy, we worked with Made U Look, a trio of photographers who shoot primarily with film on vintage cameras. The way they picked up the light was unparalleled. We’d spent the day shooting and made it to The Saguaro just as the sun was beginning to set.

The light was still bright and clear out on the balcony but as we moved inside the room, the sun started dipping behind the mountains, creating deep, pronounced shadows. Even though it only lasted for about 10 minutes, it was so beautiful.

I love the variety of outcomes from just this set of shots and have such an admiration for photographers who still shoot with film. It’s always exciting working with Made U Look because truly, I never know what to expect until I receive the download link.

      Tara: Yes, exactly! That softness is what I miss from digital. While crisp and sharp is nice in a lot of circumstances, sometimes I just really want the soft light and graininess.

      donna: Ahh, I feel you! Every time I visit Southern California, especially in the winter, I never want to leave. And, the citrus covered trees are the best part! I have an awesome house already but If I didn’t I’d have you on speed dial. ;)
