Old Hobbies Rediscovered

For most of my life I’ve enjoyed photography. I took classes in high school and college, but afterward it became difficult to keep up. I didn’t have access to a dark room or chemicals, and I didn’t have the money for a nice DSLR. But as I’ve been cleaning out some of my old things, I found pictures from my college class that made me smile. I liked the worked I used to do, and while it’s not terribly impressive, I’m proud of it. I always felt that photography was another way I could tell stories. Below are some of the pictures I found.

These are just photos of the photos that I took with my phone. You can see the glare from my light and such, but you get the idea. I plan on scanning these and creating some really nice digital copies. These were taken with a Nikon 35mm on black and white, developed and printed by yours truly in the spring of 2007. I’ve had to color correct these because I wasn’t smart enough to scan them with a proper scanner, but whatever.
