Week 35: Artspace

My photography club had a exhibition at a local ‘public’ gallery for the month of August.  I entered four photos, all taken during the course of this project.  Knowing that I would likely be putting them up in my own house, I had them mounted on metal, 3 at 16×24 and the fourth (a pinhole) on 16×16.  I got a few compliments from other photographers at the reception, including one club member who saw my pinhole and snapped a iPhone shot for future inspiration (always cool).

The gallery is located in an apartment building, which used to be a large thread mill.  The mill complex itself has all kinds of interesting buildings, waterfalls, and a renovated bridge, so it was a good place to go poking around and shot some photos.

For this week, I used a Nikon FE with a Nikkor 50mm/1.8 lens and Eastman Double-X 5222 film, ISO 200.  I developed in Perceptol for 15 minutes–there was no time on the massive dev chart, so I tossed it in with my Delta 100 from my Mystic posting.  A little grainier than I would have expected considering the developer.

And on the way home, there was some nice, angry clouds, so I got shot from a local farm.  I put a yellow filter on for this shot to make the clouds pop a little more.

Finally caught up!  I ended up buying two extra reels and another developing tank to do some mass processing.  I now have reels for all of my tanks: a 3 reel tank, two 2 reel tanks, and a single reel tank, along with a Mod54 for my 4×5 large formats.  “Let the souping begin!”  Next I’ll be building a darkroom and creating a camera obscura out of a friend’s barn.  Or, well, maybe just taking more photos.
