hey hi so today I signed the lease for the apartment and paid first month’s rent as well as the move in fees and everything, on move in day Ryan, Caitlin and Dwight will sign as well and we will have a home
I am brimming with lots of creative feelings, after developing three Holga rolls yesterday, I am extremely pleased with the results. I shot two rolls of this off brand Ultrafine 400 film and then one roll of Kodak Tri Pan? 320 speed that expired in ‘76, and for all those who are curious, other than a slight color difference and some curling, the film was pretty much pristine, which blew my mind. I just added 20% to the time in development and all was well!
Tomorrow I get to print my contact sheets from these rolls and I can start out on my prints, I am really excited : I am getting a brand new box of paper and I love that feeling
Meanwhile we have a short assignment, we have to photograph something all white or all black and create a single print. I am going to go with all white because breaking white is *usually* pretty easy if you meter correctly to begin with, flashing is always reliable, I’ll probably do a still life of fabrics and trinkets
in other other news, I have a critique tomorrow for my moon photos (which I honestly forgot about already) and that will be fun, I like seeing what everyone else presents on critique day. I get so sporadic with my photography that a week after I finalize a series, it’s in the furthest corners of my mind and I am on another plane completely
One last thing, today I had a great/awful little adventure with ericat that started with a trip to the Cummer Museum studying a Norman Rockwell for a long time, it progressed onto Monet, Cassatt, Degas and then ended with being lost trying to get to a place for food that was ultimately closed when we finally arrived
so we went to burrito gallery/burrito bar and bonded and I like small adventures and now I need to shower and read the hunger games (again), no shame
have a good one <3
