*phew!!* The chaos of moving is officially starting to slow down. This is a very wonderful thing. I don't think I am saying anything particularly revolutionary or unknown when I state that moving one's life from one location to another is just about the most frustrating, chaotic, and annoying experience one can have. However, I officially unpacked the last box last night and my new place is starting to resemble something of a home.
I also developed my first roll of film at my new place last night and I am more than pleased with the results. The image you see here is a little bit on the contrasty side, but that is not surprising considering I pushed a roll of Kodak Tri-X up to ISO 1600. I photographed this image in an old barn that was half way falling down that didn't have a whole lot of available light. In fact, looking back on the experience, I think it was probably a little stupid to try and make some photographs in this particular location. The floor was clearly giving out and both I and the model are lucky we didn't fall right through it.
For some strange reason we were both so buzzed about the location that we didn't think twice about it at the time.
Anyway, the strange things one thinks about after the fact I suppose. For now I'm rather pleased about the results and the overall sharpness of the photo considering I was pushing the film two stops. I'm considering this a sign of good luck that there will be many great images to come from my new set up. :-)
