Photo by Renee Ackerman

Ohio-based Ackerman is a film photographer whose work “is connected to the forests and the magic feelings found within nature.” In an interview with Shooting Film, she revealed that she was only 15 years old when she started doing analogue photography. Her first photographs were taken in a forest using an old film camera given to her by a friend. Aside from this, Ackerman used to shoot with an old Pentax camera that was her grandfather’s.

Indeed, with a very few exceptions, the scenic outdoors serve as the backdrop for Ackerman’s photos – whether they be random snapshots of her and her friends during excursions or planned photo shoots in the woods! Here are a few more examples:
