Experimentation: Film Photography

I learned a valuable lesson in patience when I delved into the process of taking, developing, and printing film photographs. There is no instant product produced from this. There is no way of knowing what the final image will look like. There are so many that could go wrong, and for everything to work, you better hope luck is in your favor at the moment the shutter closes.

These are some of the prints I made from film I took in high school. Some are over overexposed, some are underexposed. Looking back on them nearly a decade later, the imperfections add to a feeling of nostalgia for childhood, simpler days, when mistakes could be made that were seemingly inconsequential. It was all about enjoying the moment.
