Very excited 🙂
I am happy to announce that my camera and i have been having a great summer here in Portland. I’ve been trying to see the city in a new way. After living here for 15 years it’s hard to view my surroundings with new eyes. One way to remedy this fact, I’ve recently discovered, is to try and pretend that I’m a tourist! So far, I think it’s working…..
Ya can’t get this from digital!
It’s been about a year or more since I’ve employed my trusty manual SLR. After purchasing a used Cannon Rebel DSLR last summer, I almost forgot the joy of shooting with film. I love the anticipation, the waiting to see if anything on the roll is worth printing. I also really dig the act of composing and focusing a shot the “old fashioned” way. There’s no image-stabilization or auto-focus… it’s all very tactile and therefore rewarding when a shot turns out. Here are a couple of gems from my first “practice” roll. I’m taking a darkroom class in fall so I better get back in the swing of things.
