Last year I had such a hard time with film. Film didn’t like me and I didn’t like film. There was even an incident in which I spent 8 hours in and out of the darkroom >.< That was traumatic.
So I stayed away from film for nearly a year.
Then all of the sudden I got to thinking on how I’ve been taking all of my pictures on digital . That’s kind of boring … all the excitement of seeing the pictures develop just doesn’t exist on digital.
And that’s why I decided to give film a second chance. (That and because I don’t want to fail my portrait photography class.)
I actually processed the film from the pictures you see here. It was so scary to have to do it again after a whole year! What if the wrong amount of developer went in? What if I accidently put in the stop bath too soon? So many things could have gone wrong.
I’m glad they didn’t. The pictures came out fine 🙂 This second print, I processed only once because it had come out so perfectly on the contact sheet. With the first print, the luck ran out. I ended up having to go back to the enlarger three times to make sure I had the best print possible.
Thanks to Sharla and Maureen for helping me out on such a short notice!
