52 Weeks update

I really wasn’t kidding when I said there would be big holes in my 52 week posts. Right now I have weeks 6 and 7 waiting to be scanned, and 8, 9, and 10 are waiting to be developed.

On the plus side, I’m shooting a heck of a lot of film these days.

I have mixed emotions about posting this picture. When I started photographing animals at the local SPCA I made a conscious decision to try and a show these animals in the best manner I could. These are fantastic animals who need your love, not your pity. As sad as this photo is, I love it and I need to share it.

Omega

I recently started taking a darkroom class and utterly fell in love with the process. Today I drove 400kms to go pick up an Omega B-22 enlarger so that I can process both 35mm and 645 in my basement. One of my goals with the 52Weeks project is to make a print of each of the selected images and put together a book. Not a book that will be for sale, just a book that will sit on my shelf where I can look at it and say “I made that.”

As I keep moving back in time, making things more manual and more hands on, I enjoy it more and more. I don’t see myself doing a tintype any time soon. I seem to have settled on late 1960s to early 1980s technology as my happy place.
