Shots in the Dark (part 2)
Experiment gone awry: 35mm film pentax, fast 50mm lens, 3200 iso b&w film, and a broken light meter. Shooting film has always been something I wanted to get into more, much more in theory than in practice. This is the 2nd roll of film I've developed. The attraction: film grain is so much more stylish than digital noise. It turns out that developing and printing b&w film has become somewhat of a specialty since it has to be done by hand, thus more expensive and more likely to be ruined by the new guy. I will say that it was kind of fun not knowing how any of my shots would turn out until I got them back, only to curse the new guy. Live and learn: keep shooting digital.
