Jill uses both medium format film cameras and digital formats to create her images. This is how the artist describes her work: “My work is a reflection of everyday life and places. I chose the medium of photography as a tool to capture the essence of the person or place. I create images to depict the subject as they are remembered in the mind. Not posed or unnatural, but as a window into the intimate world of the subject.” Jill Brown is a member of Professional Photographers of America.

film love

I have always loved film.  Maybe it's because of the hours I spent in the darkroom in high school and college.  Maybe it's because the tonal range.  Maybe it's because I'm sentimental...


Lately in my free time, I have been shooting with some medium format cameras:  a Bronica ETRS, a Yashica-A and a Hasselblad 500c/m.  I am developing the film in my kitchen and scanning to print the negatives.  


I am having such a grand time...


I love film.  I love it's tone.  I love it's depth.  I love it's delicacy.  I love it's nostalgia.  I love it's history.  I love it's romanticism.
