Some Instants Before
April 5th, 2016
Before Areia and I went to Matthiessen State Park to shoot we took a bit of time and did some instant photos using my Speed Graphic and some of the last of Fuji’s 3000 speed black and white film. I’m going to really miss that film. It has a tonal quality that is unique.
These are quick and dirty scans from the original instant prints. You can’t really appreciate the richness of the tones from a scan that is reduced and presented on the web. It’s a shame. But, I guess in this digital age this film is really an artifact of photo history. There clearly was no place for it in the future of photography.
But I did manage to catch a bit of the sparkle that Areia brings to the world.
And she, of course, also brings lots of beauty and charm. Thanks Areia. I still have just a few packs of Fuji 3000 to shoot…and there are other photos I did with it after these. So you will be seeing more of it on here soon.
