The film is all done drying! Okay, I had a really hard time with it so there's a bunch fo scratches n stuff on it.
Honestly I *like* the "scratched-up film" vibe, but I wouldn't do it on purpose.
This #enlarger isn't actually grey. It's blue with a bit of dust on it!
For real though, someone in my family used to teach #photography and had this thing laying around for ages so they gave it to me. Hopefully I can mount it and print something soon enough!
My two cents, this this is big and heavy and I wouldn't pay for it. Not cause it's not worth it, but because I'm a consumer, not a professional, so having industrial equipment like this is kind of overkill.
As unworthy as I am, I'm totally going to use the crap out of this thing!
Got two rolls of pictures developed. They do this thing called "yellow tags", where if a developer or inspector thinks a picture is especially good, they fold a yellow piece of paper around it.
It's just to get people to buy large prints, sure, but it's still a cute idea. I like it.
I've only gotten 1 yellow tag before, but in this batch alone they gave me 5 *AND* a little note! I'm happy, & my head dangerously big right now. :)
There are two types of #photography that I can really, really respect.
1) Slice-of-life photography. Not just street photography, but simple things like raindrops on a bedroom window, or a streetlight glow on a stormy night. It's the type of vibe I could never capture.
2) Photos of human beings. Don't ask me to take your picture, cause you'll look at it and be like "am I that ugly?" but it's not you, it's me because I can't shoot a camera!

Half of what you say will go over my head but I'll act like I have a solution.
