    These are three shots that I took this year in my high school photography class. They are film and was processed via dark room. It was fun learning the entire process, and sad that I'll probably never do it again. Sigh.

    Enjoy these three! The last one was selected at the state competition.The scanning quality was so-so.

    Looks like you have a natural feel for film. It is not that common. Too bad you quitting.

    well unless i take photography in college, I won't have time. And it's much more expensive than digital :/

    Ah, that's what B&W is supposed to look like !!

    Eh, I think you will continue to dabble in film ... I have come back to it.

    They are all very good, but number 1 is fabulous.

    BTW, digital is very expensive when taken as a whole, especially as you'll find yourself changing cameras every 2 to 3 years!

    If you're getting results like this...i'd be weary about shooting digitally..Like I would avoid digital like the plauge, spending the few hundred (or thousand) dollars on more film instead of a digital camera.

    These are very modernist compositions, and they're timeless. That first picture...20 years from now will still be a great picture and won't fall into hype or trends.
