High School – Roll 11


Blog, Photography

With these rolls of film from twenty-ish years ago, I try to remember what the assignment was to help understand what and why I captured what I did. Honestly, I think this roll might just have been for fun. I see a trip to Chicago, a snowy sledding day, and some shots from around town. […]

High School – Roll 10


Blog, Photography

This roll of film appears to be a potpourri of class assignments and a handful of these photos look great to me today. This is another roll where I decided that the photos I don’t remember from the bunch are much better than the ones I do remember. Some of the assignments include: reflections, depth […]

Solar Eclipse 2024


Blog, Photography

At the beginning of this year, I didn’t know that photographing the eclipse on film was something that I wanted to do. Heck, I don’t think it even registered for me that there would be an eclipse. Then, I saw some videos where people were hyping it up and why and suddenly I was hyped […]

High School – Roll 9


Blog, Photography

Whositwhatsit? I’m pretty sure that the was the name of this assignment. Find an object and shoot it from different angles and then other people had to guess what it was. I think mine was guessing in about 5 seconds or less. (It’s a bike rack!) I genuinely hated this assignment. I remember having so […]

Photographing an Eclipse on 35mm Film


Blog, Photography

Recently, it came to my attention that the 2024 solar eclipse will be happening next month. On a whim, I decided to take a day off, and make a day of it. I have been itching for some time to relax, and celestial events are a good catalyst for relaxation, in my opinion. However, I […]

High School – Roll 8


Blog, Photography

There was no assignment for this roll, and to be honest I don’t really know why I took it. Likely, some younger form of me was trying to make the camera part of his personality and was bringing it along wherever he went. Who knows? The photos themselves are blurry but an aggressive kind of […]

High School – Roll 7


Blog, Photography

These photos are all bad. Really, I had to pull up the negatives to make sure I didn’t make a mistake while scanning these and sure enough, they are all bad. It looks like I had some weird light leak or development issue because every single photo has some sort of rippling along the strip. […]

High School – Roll 6


Blog, Photography

Another roll, another group of photos that I am not thrilled with 18 years after I took them. What I am finding out is that I wasn’t great about keeping my negatives in order in high school. I wish I could jump back in time to give a brief PowerPoint presentation to my younger self […]

High School – Roll 5


Blog, Photography

There are two groupings of photos in this roll of film. One grouping was the official assignment from my class and one grouping was a side project. The school assignment was “long exposures” and I’m happy with exactly one of the photos. And by happy, I mean I’m ignoring the muddiness of the photos so […]

High School – Roll 4


Blog, Photography

This roll of film is far from my favorite, nearly every photo is under exposed. What’s more than that is that I didn’t like the assignments we had to complete with these photos. I see two in particular, the self portrait and the still life. I struggled with both for some different reasons and some […]
