Black and White Film

Remember when we took pictures with film?  Those little 35mm rolls.  Rationing every shot for fear of running out at an inopportune time.  Trying to waste a whole hour at Walgreens waiting for the envelope containing those tangible photographs.  Lucky if half of them were any good.  The excitement and pride over the ones that were good.  I always ordered doubles, just in case.  The anticipation was awesome.

My favorite tutu (yes, I have more than one) is the subject of a friend's college photography project.  I create five different outfits with it and she captures them on black and white film.  This shoot was my favorite so far.  I even like the extra grainy effect from transferring them to digital format (aka: taking a picture of a picture - because I'm techie like that).

Seriously though.  I love old black and whites for their eery, romantic qualities.  And the ability to take an outfit that only a blind + crazy person would wear and make it look relatively normal.
