In college I spent a lot of time shooting 16mm motion picture film and still 35mm film. Mostly for documenting the art I was making. Recently I’ve been developing my own black and white negatives. (Thanks for being a good teacher Holden.) Plus taking advantage of the great local color film development at South Eastern Camera in Carrboro. Digital cameras are part of my arsenal too.

A note to myself: Get a red background for portraits in black and white film. Makes a wonderful gray color for portraits. Maybe paint a wall red.
This may lead me to build a small wall on wheels. Just so I can paint it red.
While it could be much simpler to find red backdrop paper… my desire to overbuild may override such practicality. “Overbuild” a real theme in my work that has lead to more than one disaster…
