Work on film over the summer
My last entry in this blog was back in May and it is now mid November. The good news is that I have photographed quite a bit over the last six months, but I haven't share here. I was busy taking a couple of Photography and Cinema classes at Collin College, and then in October I started a new job and my time for photography decreased significantly. Nevertheless, I feel good about images created over the last few months, using both digital and film.
This post is about film. I have used my three film camera, the Voigtlander, the Rolleiflex and my father's Olympus OM-1. The Rollei was with Mark Hansen for service for most of the period and I only got it back last month. I photographed mostly with the old folding Voigtlander Bessa. I love the entire process of capturing on film and then processing the negatives using chemicals. I need to be judicious with my shooting because I only have 8 exposures per roll (12 on the Rolleiflex) and I have to also be careful with my developing process. It takes a lot of effort to bring 8 photos to life using the old folding camera, but it is very worth it. Here are some images from the summer, including photos of the cameras I am using.
