Prints from film cameras.


So many choices.

I’ve been digging through the ol’ Flickr archive, looking at pictures I made with film cameras about a decade back. They’re all digital scans from negatives I personally developed or paid to have processed.

The reason behind this dig back in history is I’m hoping to print and display a good number of these images at February’s meeting of the North Austin Pfotographic Society.

Every month the club has a member competition that’s usually judged by that night’s speaker. It’s a lot of fun to participate in the contest and each judge has their own personal biases, so you never know how judging’s gonna go!

During the evening’s meet and greet at the very beginning, a club member displays samples of their work in printed form. I’ve done it a couple of times in the past… the inaugural back in January 2017 and just a while back in October.

The February 2018 meeting is Oldies Night, so any 2 photos can be entered and the normal 2 year restriction is abandoned for this annual open-themed contest. Anything pretty much goes.

I thought it would be a great idea to display prints of my older work from the many film cameras I have in my collection.

Here are a few examples…
