i took some semi successful pictures of my friend isa. the eyes are a little out of focus, but the light was dim and my camera is not always the sturdiest (even if it is the prettiest) but i do like this picture as a whole.
i haven't done any printing in the darkroom for a LONG TIME. i processed the negatives then i stood there while they dried thinking i should have a go at printing them so i did. and it felt like heaven. one of my negs was rubbish but i enjoyed the process so much i didn't really care. these images don't show isa's amazing blue eyes though so i'm looking forward to seeing the colour shots i took (even though he definitely blinked on one).
although i love using colour i really love the control i have when i use black and white. i don't have to send it off to be processed and scanned in lancaster i can do it all myself. i think i'm going to try and use the darkrooms as much as possible over summer till i graduate because i severely doubt i'll have the privilege again.
