There is just something about shooting with black and white film that I love. The emotions shine through. You can really concentrate on the subject. It’s timeless. Now don’t get me wrong, I love color too, but in a totally different way.
I shot one roll of Fuji Neopan last year and loved the contrast and the grain and the mood. Recently I found out, to my disappointment, that Fuji has DISCONTINUED it! So I decided I would shoot another roll before it got more scarce and more expensive. (I am HOPING that I don’t loose anymore of my favorite film stocks…KODAK ARE YOU LISTENING?)
I love shooting my everyday (or rather my kids and THEIR everyday.) Even though I literally do shoot everyday, sometimes I’ll just look at my images in disbelief wondering when my kids got so big and independent! No more babies at my house. This roll of film was filled with those kinds of images. Depicting my kids playing independently, having fun, learning new skills, and every one of these tugs at my heart for one reason or another.
I used the Canon EOS3 to shoot my Fuji Neopan 400 (If you are a Canon shooter and in the market for an awesome 35mm, I would check it out if I were you!). Developed and scanned by Indie Film Lab!
