I recently discovered a number of photos I had taken with 35mm black & white film and thought I would share a few of my favorites. I enrolled in a photography course my senior year of college (and even did some on-campus work as a film lab monitor), and was able to use my Grandpa’s old 35mm Minolta to learn a bunch of things that I still recall today when I’m shooting photos. I haven’t shot any non-digital photos in quite a long time, but I really enjoyed doing so for that course as well as for a few years after that. As soon as I got my first digital SLR…I didn’t really make any time for 35mm film.
I cannot really recall where I took this flower photo, but I like how the lighting brings out the textures and details of the petals and interior.
When is the last time you shot a camera with film??
Spikes in Black & White
I thought this flower had some neat textures to capture with macro close-ups, especially with some spheres of dew mixed in. It also turned out that the flower was bathed in light while some dark green leaves behind it were in shadows, which created a great contrast to really allow the form of the flower to pop.
A Toast to Amy
Today is my sister-in-law’s birthday, so if you happen to have a champagne-glass-in-a-beer-koozie handy, feel free to fill it up and raise a glass in honor of Amy!
Hope you have a great birthday, Amy!
Take a Load Off
It’s the weekend. Grab some wine, get comfortable, and relax.
Kristin has the right idea here.
30 + 30
Happy Birthday today to two of my best buds, Ken and John! They’re both that wonderful and young (well, mature young…) age of 30 today, and I hope they have a great day.
Happy 30th Birthday, Ken and John!
Pelly Mountains in Black and White
One of my favorite mountainous views in the Yukon. Gotta love the Pelly Mountains!
Dark Jetty Rocks
Ocean waves are fun to watch, but they are even more fun to watch when they are crashing into rock jetties.
