I know this shot is not unlike many I’ve posted before. I’m always okay with that. For me, it just means for me something about the image I like. One never often gets it right the first time.
I, also, probably would not have posted this particular shot if it had not been the first image I chose to transpose from film to digital. Yes, I now have a scanner.
Oh the promises I have to abide myself into being good and making full use of this!
I do feel I have stronger images than this one in film. I decided to pick ‘safe’ for my first scan and something that would also display the details of the blacks (scanners apparently miss details in the areas black). A little has been lost, I’m unsure a little about the loss but I find in the affect of this photograph on me with the slight bit more contrast is ‘taking’.
There will be more coming in days. I’ve been shooting film now for two years…. this will prove to be an adventure for me.
This was taken many years ago. I don’t do portraits often; not confident in myself this way in photograph, and visually I’m usually taken by other things that are interests of mine. This one, I came across looking upon my archive of photographs that is now a lot of my life and, personally, for my own emotional reasons, needed to finish this.
I know it’s soft in focus but that adds a touch of beauty and tenderness for me. #Love
