September always feels like a new year to me. I feel creative and full of ideas and plans. I wonder whether it’s because the academic year is so ingrained in my subconscious.
In which I review a roll of film NOT shot through a Pentacon!
As I’m home educating myself I’m not benefiting from the guidance of a teacher or tutor so it’s really wonderful…
It was my birthday last week and I actually had a wish list to hand when asked by family and friends what I would like. It was ALL books. I am a learn-o-holic afterall.
I may have decided it’s time to move on a topic but I am still working on my Prehistory photographic project so it’s not entirely over.
This is an update on my journey towards digitising my own negatives. My first post on the subject is here in case you want to refresh your memory or you missed it.
This learning log has been so good for my soul. I really mean it, writing for me is a kind of therapy. And so it is with immeasurable pleasure that I say someone else likes my writing enough to want to publish my work to their own website.
I’ve had ideas for projects before but never followed through on any of them. I think my ideas were always a little too big and trying to pull them off felt out of reach. Recently I came up with a project that links my photographic journey with what I’ve been learning about prehistory.
For me, this has been a really interesting roll of film. It was my first try with Ilford FP4 and I decided to do a few tests.
Here we have Ilford XP2 an ISO400 film. It’s black and white but C41 process which means I couldn’t develop this myself (AH!).
