Another great class graduates from MCHS tomorrow. Thank all of you for spending a bit of time with me for your senior portraits. The very best of luck in your futures.

Nick gets the cover photo because he brought a guitar to his senior portraits, and the song starts with a guitar solo, so I thought that was a cool coincidence 🙂

Expired 35mm Film.  Millers Lab.  Region 2A East Track and Field Meet.

Over the last couple of years, a couple of friends have given me a few rolls of 35mm film, all of them long past their expiration date.  Inspired by Chip Litherland’s shooting of expired film at the Daytona 500 and Kentucky Derby, I brought a film camera and four rolls of this expired color film to the Region 2A Track and Field meet last week at East Rockingham High School.  (All of these photos were shot with a Canon Elan 7e and 35mm lens.  The Elan uses the same lenses as my digital camera, so that made life a little easier.)  If you’ve ever been to East Rock, you know it’s in a beautiful location, surrounded by mountains.

The thing about shooting expired film is that you don’t really know whether you’re going to get anything until you get the film back from the lab.  A lot depends on how/where the film was stored.  We know that this film was at least 20 years old.  As film goes past its expiration date,  it can lose some of its sensitivity to light, so there’s a “general rule” to overexpose the film one stop for every 10 years past its expiration date.  At the time, I wasn’t quite sure of the age of the film, so I overexposed between one and two stops, and that seemed to work pretty well for most of the photos.  The color can get a little wacky with expired film, but that’s what make it fun.  And, if you’ve read this far, and happen to have some old film laying around in a drawer somewhere, I’d be glad to take it off your hands 😉

Photovision Large Scans
Shoot date:  March 22, 2016

I made a very quick, EARLY morning trip to Williamsburg in mid March.  It was a little early for spring, but that area is beautiful any time of year.  Here are a few photos from the trip.  You can click any of the photos to see more from Colonial Williamsburg and William and Mary, or buy prints if you like.  All photos were shot on color film, a mix of Kodak Portra 400 and Ektar, and developed and scanned by Photovision.

I’m a bit behind on this blogging thing, so I’m going to try to catch up over the next few weeks.

SO many great kids this year.  But, it’s that way every year.

Beautiful, right!? And the background isn’t bad either 😉

I rarely post the yearbook formals, but this is just too good.

After I did her formals, we did the ones below.  I hope to do more like those below in the future.  If you’re interested, but sure to mention it.

 

January 25, 2016.  Myers Family, snow

We made the most of the almost 2 feet of snow we had a couple of weeks ago.

The Myers are neighbors….if I cross a creek, and climb several fences, I could walk to their house, but I didn’t do that.  I took the lazy way, the roads had been scraped reasonably well, so driving was a bit easier.

Beautiful location, right at their house.
