Week 41 - Darkroom
Originally uploaded by gapey
I recently started shooting some film. It all started with an all film meetup event in my photography group. Film cameras come pretty cheap these days so I picked up an Olympus OMG to play around with. I've shot off a few rolls and got a few good shots. Developing my own film is something I have been fascinated with since I was a kid and have always wanted to learn how to do it. I never really thought I'd go back to film after going digital but here I am.

I now have all the things I need to develop my own film. I've been reading about it and watching some videos and have an idea of what I need to do. I'm only planning on doing black & white so I need to get to shooting so I can have something to develop. I'd love it if I could find someone that would be willing to come out and help me through it the first time around so I don't mess it up. I'll make dinner for anyone willing to come out and give me a little tutorial.

  1. I wish I remembered more about developing b&w--I did a lot of it in high school on the yearbook staff but I had to quit when marching band turned into a monster, so it's been a LOT of years since I've done it.

    It's not nearly as scary as making soap with lye so you shouldn't have a problem at all.
