I have that same chandelier!
btw, I like your pictures
Has anyone thought about black & white film? Can you even buy black & white film? Is it more expensive to process? Do you have to go to a camera/film shop instead of a Walgreens, CVS or Wal-mart?
I'd like to take pics in my hometown (a small town on the southeast coast of Massachusetts) and some of the things would look cool in black & white. They'd still look pretty neat in color, I guess
Actual black-and-white film can't be processed at most retail stores.
But you can get "black and white" color film (which is treated so it can be processed with color chemicals and printed on color paper) that is easier get processed. Kodak makes one brand, I know. It's a tad more expensive to buy the film but costs the same to print. However, I've found that processors who use a computer-run system (like Walgreens and CVS) tend to come out purple or maroon instead of black because the computer is set to balance color film.
Does anyone use medium-format film? I'm addicted to the look of it and since I can't afford a new camera right now, I'd love to get some shots...
I thought it would be fun to post some of our previous photography to get to know one another... my art journal is missing at the moment but here's a few things I happened to have on my computer.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v297/Jillie42/scream.jpg
These next few are pictures taken of pictures through glass, so you can kind of see my chandelier reflected in them... They're done with crazy lenses and darkroom techniques, so they really are supposed to be blurry, scratchy, and dirty. I really wish I could get some better pictures of the pieces, because they are bloody gorgeous.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v297/Jillie42/book003.jpg
I hope I can find a partner who doesn't mind my intentionally-ugly and artsy photos.
