Black and White - You Remember Film?!?

Remember film? You know, the roll of film that you put in a camera? Before digital?

This past semester I decided to take a black and white photography class where we:
* took photos with a completely manual, 35mm, SLR camera using black and white FILM
* developed the film and enlarged the negative
* used various filters, a timer, tools, and developing chemicals to expose, dodge and burn the print into an artful completion.

Assignment 1: Photograms
Process: layout items on the top of photo paper and expose the paper resulting in a negative output of the items.

Assignment 2: Just shoot film and get used to your camera!
Title: Dad

Assigment 3: Take photos from various points of view.

Assignment 4: Up Close and Personal

Assignment 5: Secret/Special Place

Assignment 6: Portrait
Title: Jonny's On His Rocker!

Assignment 7: Self-Portrait

Participating in a black and white photography class this semester has kept me plenty busy. The class is winding down and I'm happy to report that this photo I took has made it into the Student Honors Show!
