expired film

day 84

Learning about photography is something that I am constantly doing.  Today I picked up a couple of rolls of developed photos.  Yes I'm teaching myself how to shoot film.  I have two cameras.  A Canon EOS REBEL XS N which offers me the flexibility of using my current lenses which is really cool and a 38 year old Canon AE-1 Program.  The really fun thing about this film project that I am working on is that all of the film is super old expired film!  It was living in a freezer at NASA!  The Johnson Space Center to be exact.  

These are some of the first images and boy are they crummy!  

day 84 I am thankful for this new adventure.  I am realizing that I don't truly "see" light sometimes.  Digital is super easy now.  I feel like I'm learning exposure all over again!

The wee one took this photo of me when I was taking photos of her using the Canon AE-1.  

I'm realizing that I need to NOT let the film sit in my camera for several months.  A wee Jasper.  Look at those colors though!
