My friend Rachel again. This was shot on Kodak TMAX 400 film. I have been experimenting a little bit with black and white film and really like the look of it, which is pretty different from converting digital to black and white.

Very nice! I also really like the look of black and white film. Do you print your own images or do you send them out?

Once again, I love this image. #715763

Thanks, Cherylann! I just started shooting it so I don't know what I'm going to do with it. Mostly likely, though, since I've made high-res scans of the film, I will get the digital files printed. i've printed a bit of black and white in the darkroom but I don't really think i'll have the time to do that a lot! #4656747
