This is the first picture I developed thanks to the excellent teacher Dave at Black & White Basement. I took this shot of Louis Mendes whilst in NY lat year. He taught me more in 5 mins about the Canon A1 than I had managed to figure out from the French manual I had been trying to translate. He can be found outside B&H offering to take people’s picture with his 4x5 Speed Graphic. When I returned this year, I managed to show him the picture, even if it was on my phone. Not sure he was very impressed, but as my first photo which I had taken and developed, it was certainly a lovely image to learn to dodge and burn on.
While my camera is with Nikon getting repaired, so my first blog post will be of an Instagram picture I took of a print from my first roll of film in my dad's (now mine) Canon A1. Comic cons always bring out people's colourful and creative side.
