I'm up to my ears in developed film right now. Remember my word for this year? Simplify? Well I had about 5 rolls of film on my desk that were waiting to get developed. Now its down to just one. Woot! I think the biggest thing I miss in digital photography is that anticipation. Waiting to see what your photos look like and what the heck was on that roll. I developed a roll of Black & White medium format film last night in class. It was from Yosemite. I had completely forgotten that I had taken any film then. I blame my Europe travel preparations on that one.
So here is slide film developed like color film. The colors come out all crazy when you screw with the chemicals. This was our view from our cabin this past August (Yosemite).
And here is a photo of the bar at my cousin's grad party last summer:I finished this roll on a walk with my grandma in Walnut Creek on Tuesday. Check out the patterns the leaves make on the sidewalk! You can see more photos on my flickr account.
I worked on retouching photos this week as well. Here is a before and after of one photo choice. I still have a few little things to work on, but I think it looks pretty good. I finished reading Breaking Dawn, the fourth book in the Twilight Saga. Let me just say, WOW, I never would have expected anything that happened in that book. Go read it if you haven't!
