I can’t believe my final semester of college is almost over! I only have three weeks of classes left! We’re now wrapping up working with film in my photography course. In the next few weeks, we’ll be putting together our portfolios, working on our digital portfolio (10 photos that have a common theme/color/etc.), and working on our website. I’ll be sure to share the website once it’s set up and finished. For now, though, I’ll share the rest of my film photos.
Above: This was the only remotely save-able image from my fourth roll. My camera no longer rewinds, so I have to take out the film in the dark. I had brought two rolls of film home with me over one of my breaks, and therefore had to switch out the first roll in the dark. I went in a bathroom with no window, and turned off the light, but the film must have been exposed to some light. It kind of made this photo look quite old, which is actually a pretty cool effect.
Above: My family owns several properties (my dad owns a real estate business). One of the places we own (but do not live in) was my great-grandmother’s house. It’s a really old house (at least 150 years old), and has two really cool old wooden sheds, one of which you can see in the left of the photo. I actually somehow flipped this image when I printed it, and didn’t realize until I was done. If you were to actually look at this scene, the shed would be on the right.
Above: This was also taken at the house my grandpa grew up in. Walton is the town I live in at home, and the sign has been there for a very long time. I love the texture in this photo.
Above: Another photo from “Grandma Ogden’s house”. If you look closely, you can make out some of the faded stickers on the mailbox, spelling out “Ogden”.
Above: The two sheds I mentioned. It was a very sunny day and I took this at mid-day. Unfortunately, this picture isn’t great, thanks to the deep shadows across the front of the buildings.
Above: The Walton sign, again! I actually didn’t mean to print this photo. I wanted to print the photo with the sign above, but got them mixed up in the darkroom, and printed this one by accident. I ended up liking it a lot. The wood tones in this one are just so pretty!
I’m really happy with how my fifth, and final, roll came out. I had a lot of great photos to choose from. My professor said that it’s always nice when your final roll comes out the best- that means you’ve learned something! Now, I need to figure out what I’m doing for my digital project.
