35mm film

Two dancers in close embrace during a Friday Night Swing social dance in downtown Ann Arbor. I love the grainy grittiness that this photo exhibits, thanks to the fact that it was shot on classic Tri-X film. I’m pretty sure that the film was developed at the box speed of 400; the dancers are well-exposed because as the resident local swing dance photog, I had the privilege of being able to bounce my flash at nearly full power off the low white ceiling. Photo was shot with a Nikon F100, a 24mm f/1.4 lens, and a SB-600 speedlight on Kodak Tri-X film.

I stopped by my friend Matthew’s farm with a Nikon FM2n in tow and a roll of black and white film. I took a tour of the place, and while we were wandering around, his daughter decided that she wanted to go riding in the snow. Here, Matthew prepares the horse while his bundled up daughter waits in anticipation. Image shot on a Nikon FM2n with a 50mm f/1.8 on Kodak Tri-X 400.
