i’m back!


Film. Ilford Delta 400

It’s amazing how attached I am to this little space.  I’ve been away for a week, and it seems like eternity because I am so used to blogging in my daily routine.  We are preparing for a family move, and as stressful as that may be,  I know that I can always return here for my love of photography.

I’m excited to share photos from my first roll of black and white film.  I find that I compose entirely differently when I know a roll of black and white film is loaded in my camera.  Just knowing that the absence of color can make a striking image!  I especially love the first image – from the beginning of the roll, overexposed, but I love the effect.  It’s as though I took a pencil and erased the entire left hand side.

I have a few more to share with you this week ~

    these are lovely! I’m going through a massive b&w love phase right now…..I agree about the absence of colour. You have to think differently when you look through the viewfinder, try to remove distractions and look for the light and shadows much harder. A wonderful discipline!
    Personally, I have trouble with developing Ilford films :( I have just discovered Agfa APX and I love it.
    Love those little feet!ReplyCancel
