Film Photography

October 1, 2021

I started processing my own film by hand. Nerves were shot trying to load the film onto the reel in a dark bag without being able to see what your doing. In time it will be child's play. Can't wait to cut and scan them, just got to wait for them to dry

I am pleased with how the process is going. I learned a great deal about how to develop my own film and what I need to do to improve or better yet what I can change to get a different result the next time. That's they fun part of photography, there are so many aspects like shooting styles, medium formats, techniques and personal desire on what you can do to capture an image. What I learned about black and white photography today is, its more about exposure and the contrast in the shadow and highlights in your shot than the subject your shooting especially in film where you have less post processing available than with digital. I knew some this going in, its the reason why I decided to shoot film, to slow me down and be more aware of what I'm doing and be less lazy photographer, its way to easy to say I'll fix it in post with digital. I'll continue to shoot more film over the summer to try and develop (no pun intended, lol) some good habits.

Have a look under the “Color Film” or "B&W Film" section on this site and let me know what's your favorite, or If you'd like to see me shoot something particular. I'm open to some creative ideas.
