My prayers to the “film gods” went unanswered. I shot and developed a roll of black and white, but I’m not happy with a single frame. Funny, if I had shot 12 crappy digital images, I wouldn’t have thought twice about it, but I beat myself up something fierce for “wasting” a roll of film.
After some deep breathing exercises, I stepped back to see where I went wrong - development issues, composition issues, focus issues, subject choice issues, you name it issues. In the end, I’m reminded that shooting, with either film or digital, is all about making deliberate decisions. So Vera - slow down, think more, push the button less.
I want to share something photographic though since I promised myself I’d try to make a weekly blog post. I’m doing some digital commercial work. Thank you to Diane for letting me share the headshot I took for her.
The show I’m in at Exposure Gallery in Ottawa opened this week. Award winning photographer Tony Foushe, who is also in the show, shared some photos of it on his blog today (Thanks Tony!) Check them out here. My image is the woman with the clock between one by Caroline Tallmadge from her Amish series and Angelina McCormick’s beautiful flower.
P.S. I’ll still pray to the “film gods”
