Do you develop your own film? If not, have fun being broke. Film isn't the expensive thing, it's getting it developed and having prints made. Getting 120 film done makes me want to kill myself.

I don't think it costs that much to develop color 35mm film, unless you get prints. I can get my film processed and put on a CD for $6 at Walgreens. I don't know, maybe it's because I'm used to buying fuzz pedals and guitar related things, but photography seems pretty equal expenses wise to being a musician. It's just a matter of how passionate you are for a hobby that decides if it merits an investment. Then again, I haven't touched a digital SLR yet until next semester, my opinion might change.

Anywho here's two more images. At my school you're required to take a class on the 4x5 view camera, which they provide the camera/tripod for you and a partner in the class. These are from that class for a portrait project. My scanner is pretty sketchy :sigh but here's an idea.

If you're only developing one roll every once in awhile that's not a bad deal. But when I shoot, I shoot. I came back from a week in Colorado (before I went digital) with 9 rolls of film! Plus, unless I'm using a disposable camera, I don't let grocery stores anywhere near my film... I've had one too many bad experiences with things getting ruined. I might pay a dollar or two more at the camera shop, but they know what they're doing.

I've put way too much money into both music AND photography. But I think photography still costs me more when I think about it. Between camera bodies, lenses, lights, memory cards, batteries, films, prints... the next lens on my list runs about 400$ used : /


Eff expensive hobbies.

Thanks!

And yeah I usually give a new Walgreens I haven't been to a test roll to see how they do. And I always tell them not to cut my negatives!

Those are awesome! Did you have a bit of a storyline in mind when taking them? It has that "another lonely night" feel to me. Excellent use of cool colors.

I really want some wine now.

Edit: this is my favorite thread. :yay

I just like the pose. The pose in the first picture seems more like a snapshot, and the second one seems more like... I don't know, not a snapshot?

Awesome photos, dream. I especially love the factory/city/urban ones.

She's actually quite the opposite. Maybe you'll like this photo of her more:
