Thursday, February 10, 2011 bear with me here.....

I've started to notice that I process my film much too soon. I was recently looking at some negatives from 2009 and realized a lot of the stuff I discredited as not "making the cut" was actually the best stuff on the roll. Looking back brought back a lot of memories and reminded me of things I hadn't thought about since taking the photos. Therefore, I'm going to make an effort the next few weeks to re-examine some old negatives and post on this bloggity.

Also, nerd time, I'm making an effort to shoot exclusively with a 28mm lens for the next few weeks. . It's wide, wider than I generally like but I'm hoping it will force me out of habits and enable me to get closer when I shoot with my 35mm lens (the best lens in the world, focal length wise, in my opinion).

Basically, I'm breaking my photographic "comfort zone".

Coney Island, New York, 2009.

yay. excited to see more stuff.
I find I am the same way. when I go back through shots from a trip (or anything where I shot a lot of frames in a short amount of time) I always find shots that I overlooked the first time.

hey, with you here. my show coming up is currently 60 - 70% frames i'd ignored first time around. I have to say this is always one of the main reasons i stick to film. I find digital to easy to delete especially when storage gets full.

with Weston cant wait to see the rest of the results.
