a few favorites from a roll of film i’ve had in my camera for a few months now! dru actually just bought a scanner, so now we’ll be able to have all of our negatives uploaded and in a much better quality than the discs we’ve been getting from walmart. much better!
on another note… my fourth year project has been ordered!
(panic totally ensued typing that).
but seriously, that’s it, that’s all, its done, and there’s no making changes now. such a weird feeling! i just need to stop second guessing choices in the mean time. it was hard to narrow down what i’ve been up to and i would never be able to include everything that i would like (i’m a bit nonstalgic for shake face right now) but my teachers and few friends i’ve had to get opinions from have been supportive of what has been put together. so, i think i’m going to be really happy with it! only 29 days until the show, and the days to no more classes count… 16!
i’ve been curious for a while what it would be like to start doing manual double exposures, so on a fairly spur of the moment trip to st. john’s this weekend to see my sister i took advantage of the 8 hours travel time both ways and tried my hand at them.
i’ll admit i’m pretty much photoshop illiterate, so i edited both images in lightroom first and them imported them into photoshop, played with opacities, reimported the final images to lightroom and fixed minor details and clarity. thoughts? it still doesn’t touch film (duh, considering film is the best) but i think it might be interesting all the same.
what a different sunday. i’m used to sleeping in and going out for breakfast, photos all afternoon, some cooked/jigg’s dinner for supper, and then sitting back to enjoy [stress over] some walking dead.
but real life knocked, although it’s a bit of a stretch to call university “real life” to me, and i’m currently appreciating just hanging out at work for christmas hours doing some tidying and enjoying an americano. not to mention the excuse to get up and out of the house away from a to-do list the length of my arm… which i might add to the profs who occasionally migrate here, will be promptly revisited as soon as i’m finished work.
seriously though, i’m voting for eight days in a week. has anyone else seen the meme floating around with the caption “the first five days after the weekend are always the hardest!” and the girl sobbing into her hands? totally makes me laugh every time i see it.
its no surprise my car is just about photo road trip away from 18,000 kms. although after only getting it new on june 1, you’d think that number would be a little smaller! but call it taking advantage of this beautiful province, there’s no such thing as a wasted drive. just call it location scouting! (it helps justify all that gas money too).
the two above film photos are from a road trip out to woody point a few weeks ago. we definitely showed up in an off season – galliott studios was closed, whaat – but will be going back next summer for sure. it’s such a beautiful little place!
i can’t recommend enough for people to pick up some film though. borrow a film camera from someone, or dig one out of the back of a parent or grandparent’s closet. even if it’s been sitting there for 20 years, i bet you 20 dollars it still works. film is the best.
