Ah, the smell of fresh film as I hold the camera up to my eye! The sound of the film advancing. Manual focusing. Not seeing images immediately (though I did catch myself checking the back of the camera multiple times). I took my old 35mm SLR when we went to Georgetown a couple months ago and finally got the film developed. Did I simply procrastinate, or was I afraid of the results? Whatever the case, they aren’t nearly as bad as I thought they’d be. The next roll of film is already in the camera. The assignment on that one: jewelry.
We’re all getting so used to the vibrant, crisp quality of digital photos these days. I like the soft, buttery look of film for a change. I even like the grain!
Nice skin tones, too!
All taken with a 50mm lens.
