Almost a decade ago I decided to take a class on black and white photography. It was a darkroom class and my reasoning was that I wanted to be better able to understand terminology and technique and what goes into creating a print.
Jump to a couple weeks ago. I was looking around my desk area and noticed the negative insert module for my scanner. So I figured I'd give it a shot and see how that works.
Combine the two and you have the photos that appear in this folder: http://www.pavellephoto.com/p812385125
It is interesting to see the old images. I can see different things that started in that class that I've played around with frequently ever since, from playing with shadows to shooting flowers from behind to ocular reflectivity (although I didn't notice or understand the reflection as much back then.
