Foray into film

One of my goals this year is to explore film photography. To that end, I have purchased several rolls and started my journey.  I began this roll of film last year, so the majority of these were shot in Silver Springs before the Big Move, and last week I finished off the roll in our new home. 

Obviously, the camera needs a servicing…there is a pronounced scratch line along the right (portrait) and bottom (landscape), as well some lint and dust. I’ll do that before I expose my next roll.

I had the film processed at The Dark Room, and these are the scanned photos they provided online for download. I will receive the negatives in the mail in a few days, and at that time, I’ll be able to scan them and perhaps do some additional processing.

I am loving the texture and depth of these, even if they aren’t particularly dynamic. Film: Kodak 100 T-MAX. Camera: Canon AE-1 with a 50mm fixed lens.
