Film Friday – February

This is the first week of a new blog circle I am participating in with a group from the Bloom Forum.  This time around it’s Film Friday.  One of the other photographer’s suggested that we talk about why we decided to participate in this project and for me it’s really related to just loving the look of film and wanting to learn more about it.  It is different from digital and even though I can’t, for many reasons,  imagine losing digital as a format, I am drawn to learning more about film.  I took my first photography class ever using a film camera, but it was immediately after that class that I switched to digital.  I never really learned how to use film and what I learned this first week is that I have A LOT to learn.  I’ve picked my favorite to show and in keeping with letting go of perfect I will say that the majority on the roll were far from it.   I am definitely spoiled with digital and having the option to grab several shots in a row when my subject moves quickly, my focus falls in the wrong place or just looks away from the camera 1 second before I press the shutter.  I have many just missed shots so timing is definitely an issue I will be working on.  Looking forward to learning more.  Karyn Johnson is next on the circle.  You can check out her experience with film here.

I shot this with a Nikon F100 on Fuji ProH 400 rated at 200. Developed and scanned at Walgreens.

JennyO - Great expression and lovely colours! I have a hard time focusing on the right place too (specially with dodgy eyesight!) so it’s something I’ve got to work on a lot.
