As a photographer we often search for different ways to artistically express ourselves. Although, I grew up in the digital age of photography I've always had an interest in shooting film. It's just something about the grain that a film camera produces.
Not to mention, shooting film really forces you to slow down, plan out and frame your shot, make sure your settings are adjusted properly and then shoot. After all, you only have 24 exposures so you better make them count.
My friend and fellow photographer, James Thomas, allowed me to borrow one of his film cameras to begin my collection of black and white images.
Why black and white, you may ask?
I feel that black and white images allows the brain to see the image for what it is. Color naturally distracts the eye and draws you to one aspect of the image.
Join me as I share with you a few selected images from my very first roll of black and white film.
