Sarah rebels against the no-smoking signs. I posed her for this; she didn’t notice the sign till afterwards. Somehow, we didn’t get in trouble. It was noon-time, but fortunately the light wasn’t too harsh.
This is from 35mm black-and-white film (developed, printed, and digitized). I decided to burn in sign (in Adobe Photoshop); it adds punch. Don’t smoke kids! Cigarettes are too expensive.

I took this shot from right underneath a street light; the subject is quite interesting yet overlooked. Developed this from black-and-white film; it was sunny out yet I managed to get a dark sky.

These are blue ornaments, lined up on a white carpet. But they’re in black and white, so I’m counting them as black. A gelatin-silver 35mm film frame, developed, printed, and digitized. I used a 3 1/2 filter on multi-grade paper to get the high contrast.

Took this at 7 A.M. when it was foggy out… a great time to take pictures; this wouldn’t have the same mood in mid-day.

I’ve been talking about branching off into portraiture, and where better to start than at my school? This is a scan of a gelatin-silver 35mm film frame that I developed and printed; the lady is smiling as this is posed, but she looks good nonetheless.

Wine bottles on a shelf. Saw these at a grocery store; I turned the bottles around so the labels are facing away.
This is my first film print for my photography class. I didn’t make a test strip, but instead took a guess at exposing (20 seconds, 50mm lens, F8, 3 1/2 filter), and it developed nicely.
I don’t have a film scanner, so I just put the enlargement on my cheap flat-bed scanner, and then restored the contrast and removed some dust in Adobe Photoshop. Enjoy!

Took this by positioning the dandelion clock right in front of the sun, but I hurt my eyes a bit from the light. They’re fine, but it reminded me to be more careful about photos like this. This was going to be a sequel to Two of Us Against the World, but I decided to focus on the dandelion blocking the sun, as it’s so much brighter. Had to under-expose manually, because the camera didn’t want the sky to be black. This is my finest black-and-white photo since Raindrops.

One of my best photos: raindrops, captured in motion. It took about 70 shots to get this; it’s of water drops falling off the roof of my back porch. The sun came out, so I had light to use a fast shutter speed (1/2000 second).
I sharpened and added contrast to make this perfect.
