This is the sort of brilliant photography I have been capable of recently. "How does he do it?" you might ask! All you need to do is practice. You do best what you do most.
I got this back from the photo lab yesterday along with eleven other brilliant images. BUT--I bought chemicals to develop my own color film. That's right. Rather than spending a few bucks to get my film processed and scanned, I'll do it myself. It will be hours and hours of fun. There will be no end to the bad pictures I can afford to take.
That is how it seems to me, anyway. But I am kind of excited to try developing my own large format color negatives. And I will be until I do it. Sooner or later, I will be sickened by the whole thing and just spend the money and buy the Hasselblad digital camera that I lust for. That would probably make me happy for a day or two.
I DO have some experiments that I want to try, though. You know what a mad scientist I am. Nothing makes me happier than sitting with a bunch of test tubes in the old photo laboratory.
Q sent me a link to the iPhone he is going to buy. It is really expensive, but not as expensive as everything else. He'll be a famous photographer before I can develop a roll of color film.
