|Shot this with my Mother-in-law's old Ricoh SLR, Kodak Tri-X film. I LOVE this grain.|
The photos have a really neat "dark" quality to them, and I processed them to look like Kodak Tri-X. I had originally intended to shoot film for this walk, but the rain was a big discouragement, since I really wasn't able to change film on the fly.
|This guy doesn't look like he's very happy with me, but I smiled and waved after snapping this shot and he smiled back. It's amazing how people will react sometimes.|
Contrary to the previous walk, I was able to shoot a lot more film, and used my Elan 7e as my primary camera for most of the night. All of these shots were made on Kodak Tri-X.
I think I will probably host a few more of these before the year is out. They're a fantastic chance to get out, stretch your compositional muscles and really think about light, tones, textures and shapes, all without the distraction of colour! I will have to find some interesting parts of town to explore as well, hit me with suggestions, and feel free to come along to the next one!
