“Thankfully, we did. Get home, I mean. Even if it was
around midnight. Beats sleeping in the car and staying
the night over in an unfamiliar town.”
Whenever I go back to that day in Santa Cruz, I always see it in my mind’s eye as this classic scene that Hollywood portrays in the movies. Shooting in B&W film gave these moments the exact mood that I was going for.
I shot scenes from Santa Cruz in both monochrome and color, and it gave off a striking character and mood distinction to the images. With monochrome film, the photos captured this feeling of nostalgia. With the colored film, the photos captured this vibrancy of life. I just think it’s incredible to see such a distinction in the impact and feelings evoked by each set – despite shooting within the same day and location.
