It’s been a little over a year since I picked up my first 35mm film camera and started my journey on black and white film photography. Recently I decided to take a class which I envisioned it to help me set aside dedicated time to focus on my craft, be surrounded by others who love the medium and work on my technical skills. If you’d like to follow along, you can find my future blog posts under ‘photography school’ by typing it in the search bar.
I’m already on my fourth week of class and I’ve learned so much. I’ve been pushed outside of my comfort zone (hello completely dark closet that forces me to face my fear of the dark!!!) and I’ve learned to be completely in the moment. It was such a struggle to not let my mind wonder elsewhere when I was watching the clock while developing my film or prints. Now I find it very therapeutic and refreshing to be completely focus on the task at hand with no interruptions.
These photos were taken earlier this week while I was in the lab developing my film and printing. You can see there are clocks everywhere. Time is of the essence!
