As I am sure you noticed, I have started to post a lot of Black and White Film Photographs lately. I took a film course last spring semester (a year ago!) and my professor had lost my portfolio over the summer. He recently found it so I have scanned the prints that I made in the dark room. I did a few sets of portraits (Ashleigh's here and more to come!). Another half of the course was to pick a place and return every week to shoot a few rolls of film. I wandered around one day and stumbled upon a beautiful set of twisting alleys. (This is where I take a lot of my outfit photos!) The alleys have such character, such intricate yet decaying architecture. Spiraling rusting gates and chipped gargoyles. They are also filled with trash. I find this to be a sort of unconventional beauty. I spent an entire semester taking rolls and rolls of film in these alleys. I spent a lot of time going through my contact sheets choosing which ones to print and which ones to include in my portfolio. These are the sixteen photos that I chose (maybe you notice that each set of two sort of have a theme?). I absolutely love shooting film and making dark room prints. I think that to be a  successful photographer it is important to learn how to shoot in analog with film. I'm definitely going to start to share more of my film work on the blog, I have a few more film portrait sets to share so be sure to follow on Bloglovin' !

  6. Sometimes B+W can capture the little things and a mood color can never compare to!
