I started my photography journey back in 1994 with chemicals, dark rooms, wet rooms, and everything that film developing and printing brings to this craft. Guess what, I don’t regret it one bit. Back then I took a few college courses titled the “History of Photography I and II” coupled with “Black and Photography I and II,” and what an experience those were.
The History of Photography courses taught me the foundation of the great photographers in history. We went in chronological order starting with daguerrotypes and culminating with 35mm photography. What photographers instantly captured my attention?
Eugene Atget, Walker Evans, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Brassai, Dorothea Lange, Robert Capa, Lee Friedlander, Robert Frank, and Gary Winogrand.
To make things even more significative, my professor was a student of Gary Winogrand back in his days at the Chicago Institute. His insights on Winogrand’s style of photography are lessons I still remember like it happened yesterday. Long live photography.

Super photograph, love the pov. Takes me back a bit. Think what I miss about the darkroom are the smells and that excitement as the print starts to appear in the developer. Regards.
Jajaja for sure Geoff, not mention the smell of fixer et al. you’re right it did smell like crap, plus all the t-shirts I messed up developing. But you know what, it was a rite of passage and one I remember dearly.
Excellent framing and great spot focus.
lol….yep I still use it 🙂
Great to see it still in use!
to be honest, I don’t miss it one bit. Well actually the actual full frame 35mm negative, that I miss.
