MOM & DAD /// PENTAX ILFORD 400 35MM FILM

My dad gave me his old Pentax K1000 camera when I was in high school so that I could use it for my first photography class.  I loved using it and developing my first prints in the class darkroom, but my photography classes in college were strictly digital (unfortunately).  I tried to pick up the camera again in college, but when my hard drive had a near meltdown as I tried to transfer some digitally scanned negatives in the lab, I was sufficiently freaked out enough to put film on the back burner again.

This past year I loaded a roll of Ilford HP5 Plus 400 35mm film - black and white - into it, and would randomly pick it up or take it with me on trips.  I finally finished the roll and had it developed, and I couldn't be happier.  I am IN LOVE with these portraits of my parents.

I also have shots from San Francisco, Chicago, Atlanta, Grayling, and a couple from my photo session with Matt, that I will be sharing in the coming weeks.  I have a feeling this is the beginning of something new... to follow along feel free to subscribe.
