Nice shots Tammy. The swing brings back great memories of torturing, er... playing with my younger brother in days gone by.
Thanks photobug. Sorry to say, the swings not mine - it was next door to an old historic site I stopped by to take photos of, and this was the last shot.
i really like the first one .. love the contrast and composition ... the second one has a lot of character .. what iso were u using?
This was my first time using 'Black and White' film - it was Kodak 400 BWC (C41 processing kind) and was actually more brown and white which kinda suprised me.
cool ... so how do ya like b&w film?
So far, so good. Well....I hate having to wait to see how things turn out, and to be honest, I'm uncomfortable with paying for shots that don't turn out (I'm just not use to having an expensive hobby.) - and there's more work involved with just scanning a pic than I care for (the scanner is in a different room then where my PC is) - But I like the anticipation of opening the envelope from the package and going through the photos, and I like the final product better then what comes off my printer. I'm also looking forward to the weather turning so there are some more scenic things to take photos of. I'm driving my kids crazy!
That's because your lab printed it on color paper.
Keep practicing with the digital, keep the film camera around for some shots, and you'll have the best of both worlds. Even though I am a complete film geek, I've always encouraged folks to use digital, A LOT!! Practice makes perfect, and it's hard to beat the convenience and affordability of digital. Use the film when you have the time to really think about and work on the shot.
Thanks Matt. Next time I'll remember to ask if they can do B/W paper. And thanks for the advice on shooting - I've been carrying both cameras around with me lately - it's quite fun.
Yeah it used to be convenient, but now i have img1-1000 on my hardrive and i'm starting to wonder
FYI... A good printer (the person, not the machine) can correct the photos to make them look more like true black and whites. It's just an adjustment but some labs don't take the time.
