I have been shooting a lot of black and white and learning and experimenting with film and developing it myself. I don’t really have any spectacular photos to show for it yet, but I am really enjoying the process. I’m tired of the sterile, clean, colorful look of digital. I want my photos to reflect their recording medium with grain, and maybe even a little dirt, imperfect focus, etc. Much like the roughness and texture of texture and paint take away clear details, yet contribute overall to the aesthetics of a painting.
