[Photography] Film Work

I realized I've not generally posted any of my film (as opposed to digital) work, so... here's a shot of something I took at the Fremont Sunday Market some time back. I just loved the light and the composition as I walked past, and went 'I think I need that picture.'

When shooting film, I almost always shoot black-and-white with Kodak Professional T-MAX (since unless I go to the University Bookstore for the really high-end stuff, that's about all I can get). I tend to use ISO 400 for black-and-white, since it gives me freedom to shoot without a flash in a variety of situations. (And yes, I realize those bits of information mean nothing to anyone but the handful of other photographers on my friends-list.)


400 Tri-x is what we're shooting for B&W I, I guess they're pretty similar.

I like this picture, film is so different than digital.
I really should take a course over at PCNW someday. I've never really taken a photography course in my life, save for a two-session one at Discover U a while back.

And yes, I love film. Especially black-and-white. For something like the Fremont Solstice Festival, digital's a lifesaver; as long as I'm shooting RAW, I have so many options. But I really love black-and-white. I can make black-and-white digital images, but there's just a feel to B&W film that I've yet to really capture digitally in a satisfactory manner. :)
