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!
my last few fall photos! winter has sure showed up, and fast. dru actually put up a blog post of the snowfall yesterday which you can check out here. i just enjoyed the drive around : ) corner brook looks gorgeous!
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.
i juust finished developing my two rolls of hasselblad film, and all i have to say is whoaaa. i’ve really been dragging my feet about using this camera half due to the expensiveness of this project (almost $100 just for 50 sheets of large scale paper to print on alone), but i know when its all said and done having these negatives printed off on 11×14 paper will soo be worth it.
honestly, the size of the negatives and the quality of the film is crazy when you realize how old this camera is and the quality of cameras now! this camera by far surpasses anything digital i’ve ever used. film is killing it again!
as much as i love my digital camera (which i honestly dearly do) there’s still something about film i frigging love. maybe its because you have to be so much more careful because “spraying and praying” isn’t really an option. you have 24 shots, and by the time you get the film back guaranteed your always surprised at a few frames whether you forgot you shot it or love how it turned out.
that being said, i just had three 35mm colored rolls developed yesterday after shooting off two rolls of hasselblad film for a school project. massive thanks to dru and reo for being such cooperative subjects! film is the best for sure. you can’t fake that kind of grain!
as much as I love my digital camera… film has totally stolen me, and I love the graininess of it. i’m in a mad rush this week to keep printing off prints for the art auction this weekend, and just wanted to post two of my favorites – I have such a beautiful friend! and bottle cove blows me away every time I see it. even though that’s probably in the triple digits by now.
