September 2017

This month I focused on using my 4×5 view camera for class (this is what it looks like, for those who are unfamiliar). The process of shooting, developing, and printing a final product is tedious, so quality of photos is more important (and more feasible) than quantity. Β It’s hard, fun work!

1
Here was the first shot I took of the semester (Aug. 24)
2
I usually shoot the same scene twice in case something goes wrong with film processing.
3
If only I had captured more detail in the staircase in the background!
4
This land is on the outskirts of my neighborhood in Raleigh, what a cool area to explore (Sept. 9).

This is the final print created. I was able to pull out many more values will the right filter and editing.

8
This is the final print for the previous negative. Again, you can see how many more values appear with proper editing.
9
Some classmates and I found this overgrown storage shed off of Highway-49 (Sept. 22).

The vines had grown into the window!

I’ll most likely make another print with this image, I lost too much detail.
14
The grass grew through the parking lot cement.

I love these values in the grass.

  1. I enjoyed reading & learning the process you used to take these pictures. Really makes me appreciate our fast camera technology of today.
    I have walked by the old Doyle house many times and yet never noticed the things that YOU captured in your photographs.
    YOU ARE SO TALENTED AND WISE TO HAVE CHOSEN PHOTOGRAPHY AS PART OF YOUR MAJOR!
    Keep learning, having fun in college & enjoying every moment of your life. So proud of you. Love, Mom/Peej/Peejie Squeejie/etc. 😊
