So for the last few days I have been wrecking my brain to figure out where in the world I packed my old binder with all of my past photography photos. I still have yet to find them. LOL!! So since I could not find the binder, I tried looking for a CD with some of my scanned work from my senior year and third year in my photography class. I couldn't even find that!! I mean getting older is not helping my brain out at all! LOL! I don't want to even imagine ten years from now! So, I finally came a cross one of my favorite photos in my external hard drive, where I saved some old pictures, and I want to share it with you all. I love it because it was when my mom and I made a split decision to have a long weekend in Puerto Rico. My goodness I must have been seventeen years. Never going to forget that trip.
Castillo San Felipe del Morro. I love this picture.
I took it to Lightroom to brighten up a bit. But since its a scan and jpeg there was very little I could do about the heavy grain and super dark shadows. Mind you I developed this picture in a darkroom. Every single step! Taking the roll of film from my camera and going into a completely dark room where you couldn't even see your hands in front of you. Then having to pop that film canister open and rolling your film on this reel. Let me tell you if your film was touching in anyway you lost all or majority of your pictures you took on that film. So you had to be so very careful when rolling it onto that reel. Once you did that you developed your own film and if you developed it wrong...well there goes your pictures. Many things could go wrong back in those days. But it was so much fun. I miss it to be honest with you. Going into the dark room with your pack of photo paper and trying your best to expose your pictures just right to get the best composition in that photo. A lot of my old school photographers will remember those days. lol! When Photoshop was just getting introduced to us in the classroom. Oh to turn the hands back for just a few hours in Photography class.
