Black and White | Roll 1

Random. That’s how I would describe my first roll of film in this project. This week was more about experimentation and I learned a lot about this camera and film. The most obvious thing I learned is that the viewfinder has quite a wider view than what is exposed on the film. There’s a box inside the viewfinder that I thought was just to help center the shot. Now I realize that is more or less what will actually be exposed. I didn’t keep to any one theme on this roll. Some things that do tie them together are my interest in pine trees and upward perspectives, but one of my favorites defies these subjects: 19. Something I think this camera and film capture well is a sort of casual delicacy. In other words the photos can be simultaneously careful and spontaneous.

edit: I deleted most of the photos from this Black and White project due to storage constraints on WordPress and the fact that I prematurely quit this project.
