    I shot them with an old Nikon FE3 with an AF Nikkor 24-120mm f:3.5-5.6 D (yes its an AF lens on a non AF body). Film was Ilford FP4 Plus ISO 125.

    I kinda screwed up in the darkroom, so it came out a little grainier than I wanted.

    love it. But im no expert. First one would look better if it had more contrast.

    Pretty cool though.

    Hey did they make you buy a film camera for class?

    Yeah, one of the class requirements was a 35mm camera, though it didnt have to be an expensive.

    Here are two more I shot and developed today:

    (Im trying to get a vintage feel to my shots as my theme)

    i think when you shoot black and white like in that last pic its better to maybe be underexposed than over.

    Yeah, I need to go back to the darkroom on campus and re-do the second print. Ill also use a number 2 filter instead of #3 and expose it 5-7 seconds longer.

    This is my first time working with 35mm and developing prints myself btw. Shit is HARD to do perfectly, especially loading the drum in the darkroom. I lost 8 shots on my roll screwing that up. :mad:

    Which developing spools are you using? Metal or plastic?

    Im a noob and dont know how to use them very well at all. I need to take a developed roll and practice putting it on a spool in the daylight. I suck at doing it in the darkroom right now.

    what really helped me loading film in the dark (using the plastic spools mind you) was to line up the little slots that you put the film into before you turn off the lights. that way when you pick it up you already know they are aligned, it's just a matter of putting the film into it.

    and dude...you live in the mountains. why don't you go out in the woods and take pictures of "line, shape, and texture"? i live in michigan and i can see trains whenever i want. take advantage of your location man.

    Because everyone and their grandmother in this class is taking pictures of "the mountains" I wanted to do something my teacher doesnt see a lot. Plus waiting an hour + for a train to go by, just to get a perfect shot is rewarding to me.

    no doubt.

    Same here except my photo class is all digital, with Lightroom and CS3 as our "darkroom". Our final project is for a local bank, and we were told no poppies and no mountains... guess what everyone but me and a couple of other friends have been shooting constantly?

    I really like the head on train shot, very antique-looking.

    Got any Highres scans of that one I could use as my desktop wallpaper?
