Rolleiflex 2017

When I purchased my DSLR last spring, I sorta fell off the Rolleiflex train. Sigh. I went with the DSLR, because it’s convenient and  instant. Whereas with a Rolleiflex- you need test your exposure, manually focus, push the shutter, wait to go through the entire roll of film, mail (or develop the film yourself), wait, cut the film up, remove the dust, scan it and photo-shop it. One roll of film is like a two month process. 🙂 As I said in my 2018 goals BLOG, I REALLY want to focus on shooting at least one roll of film a month. There’s something about film that makes you really appreciate the process and the art of photography. With film, you can’t “fake it till you make it.” You really need to know your stuff. 

I’ll be the first to admit, my house lacks natural light. My life is a bit on the uneventful side. So, these images aren’t anything amazing. Just my mundane life. I know at some point, when/if my life turns upside down, I’ll look back on these uneventful/boring/mundane photographs and wish I could go back. 

Here’s a few snaps of 2017. 

Shot with a Rolleiflex 2.8. Using Kodak 400tx. Developed by the FIND lab. Scanned by me.
