a year of film

A year ago, I bought a Pentax 35mm film camera on ebay that was older than I am.  Little did I know how much I would fall in love with film photography. Learning is a process though.  Imagine my reaction when I went to pick up my first roll of film, in which I am carefully composed each shot, and it came out completely blank.  I was crushed.  But I didn't let that stop me.  In fact, it motivated me to truly learn my craft.

Looking back at these photos from my first few rolls, I am reminded of how far I have come.  How unsure of myself I was a year ago, and how more confident I am now.  I still have a lot to learn in this new year, and new directions I would like to take my work.

I'd like to share with you some of my favorite film images from this past year....

 

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for visiting this little space of mine over the past year.  Your emails and comments (I read each and every one) mean the world to me.

Happy New Year, my friends.
