Back to film…
When I was 16, I picked up a 35mm film camera and fell in love with photography. I love shooting with film but I have gotten a little distracted over the years and I hadn’t been shooting it very much. So, when I started taking a film class my first semester back at college, I was extremely excited. I want to share a little bit of my work I have made the last few months. I’m very happy to be able to work in a darkroom again.
If you have read my previous blog post, you’ll know I went to Georgia for a concert in March. While I was there, I went exploring downtown Atlanta. Wandering around somewhere I’ve never been before is my absolute favorite thing. You never know what you will come across. Below are some of my favorite images from that outing.
(This one has a special place in my heart.)
The next few are not from GA but another adventure around Ybor, FL. I have walked around Ybor countless times over the years and it never ceases to amaze me how different it is every time I go there.
My last set of images, I was assigned to create photos with a narrative. The rest of the guide lines were pretty open. I chose to create a narrative around song lyrics. Music has always been there for me, it only seemed right to include it in the making of my art. I experimented with slow shutter speeds, double exposures, and mixed media.
“After all we’ve been through,
I don’t think we’ll make it through this.
Best friends can become strangers,
you’re just a memory. “
“But if you just take off your mask,
you’ll find out that everything’s gone wrong. “
“You don’t know you’re a poor unfortunate soul. “
“In this sea of lonely. “
“If you open your eyes you’ll see,
that something is wrong.”
“Something in our dreams to keep the stars away…
Something in the stars control our fate…”
“I never wanted to believe that you could lie,
And here I stand, I’m still the same.
I watched you change, you won’t come back.”
Until next time. -A
