In attempt to a. remember and b. re-tap into the creativity that I know I once had.. I'm going through old photos and gathering up PROOF of projects that once held me captive for hours and hours and hours at a time.. similar entries are tagged: art gone byOnce upon a time, I took a film photography class in college (Winter 2007). It was an intro class.. which means I spent a lot of time learning what everything did and not a lot of time using those tools to intentionally create something. I know that is the process that we all must take, but I do wish I would have taken a follow up class or that the class was longer.. I feel like I really only did just scratch the surface of what is possible. Half of the time, I couldn't even properly get my film onto those stupid little coils to stick them in the fixer (?) and ruined my chances of a good shot before I ever even made it to an enlarger.
I really did love being in the dark room though. There were times I felt that so much chemical exposure couldn't be good for my insides, but it was generally quiet, and calm, and methodical. And you get to see photos come to life right in front of your eyes. I miss that. I would love to have access to a dark room someday.
I found these photos on my external harddrive. They are NOTHING to write home about.. I don't even know where my favorites are, maybe I never took digitals of them. So, maybe this is all I have.
