I got a phone call...

My sister asked if she could use my house to do their family pictures one day, with another friend as their photographer. I was happy to donate my house for their session.

That morning I got a call from the photographer who said she had pink eye, and wondered if I could do their session instead. Poor girl! Of course I would step in. would give me a chance to play with film a little more.

I used two rolls of film. One on my Mamiya 645 (which gave me only 15 pictures), and the black and white images were on my Canon A1 (35mm), so I got several more images on that roll.

I crossed my fingers that some of them would turn out, and that I would learn something from doing the session.

Well, some of them didn't turn out, like, at all. But some of them did! I also learned (re-learned?) something: I stink at focusing wide open with manual focus. So, I need to stop down until I get better. But here are some of the results that I was happy with!

This was originally in color, but I liked the drama of the light in black and white better, so I converted it.

I love the look of film. What about you? Do like how they turned out?

P.S. Please let me know if the horizontal images are cutting off on the right hand side of the image on your screen. I don't know if I've sized these too big or not.

P.P.S. I took some images in digital too, but I wanted to share my film. I may share some of the digital images in the future.
