Early 35mm Film Photography

This is my early photography work, developing 35mm black & white film at home for the first time. It was mostly experimental, haphazard, and unpredictable. I used sink water, and Kodak developer, and Kodak fixer. Everything was water-based, and inaccurately measured. It was a very janky way of doing things, but at the time, it was the most cost effective means of developing my pictures.

Black And White Dreams

Black And White Dreams

When I was a child, I would dream in black and white. Only a small fraction of my dreams would be in color, to match normal perception of day, respectively. And yet there is something beautiful about black and white dreams. They are often mysterious as the characters generally fade into ones perception much like silhouettes, or a ghost coming towards ones self walking out of a cover of fog. For reasons I cannot explain, as as adult, the vast majority of my dreams are in vivid color, the complete opposite of those I had during my childhood.

Early Black And White Photography, Circa 2003

Circa 2003 The following are examples of early black and white photography, scanned from 35 MM film which I developed myself using traditional darkroom techniques. It is sometimes helpful to look back at ones personal past, also known as the playful beginnings of ones development to see just how far they have come, and perhaps more importantly, what still needs to be improved upon.

Featherstonehaugh

Arthur S. Covert 112 Front Street Schenectady, NY 12305 February 8, 1988 Dear Doktor, I am listening to the Iowa results. I have just decided that the only Democrat who says things I approve of wholeheartedly is Jesse Jackson. I will vote for him in any New York primary. But I am afraid I would be unhappy to be forced to vote for him as president. I don't like Reverends, I don't think a black president could find people for his cabinet. I guess I'm just a bigot. But I'd vote for him against any Republican who has surfaced. As an exercise in Cloud Cuckooland I have read...
