Shots and Thoughts

Photos and comments as I explore my passion for photography. Written to and for myself as a journal to track major moments and minor observations as I continue to evolve my visual art. 

Film

I just got back my first real set of scanned film shots and couldn't be more pleased for this first effort. I am shooting the Leica M-A camera and my friend Joe turned me on to the external light meter that worked great. You always hear that film looks different than digital shots and it is really true.

This was B/W TriX 400 pushed to 1600. I need to sort through the post processing work as it is different than digital.

Pro tip: Just shoot. These rolls have given the me confiedence technically on shooting film. Exposing for the blacks is key, where in digital you are constantly watching the highlights.
