Hours of Idleness-A Photographer's Journey in St. Louis

New Photographs

Posted in 35mm, art, black and white, film, photography by Jason Gray on March 4, 2011

As promised, here is the first round of work that I have been producing on 35mm, black and white film. Last January, I enrolled in courses at the St. Louis Community College at Forest Park, which gave me access to a great, black and white film lab. Since then, I have been working on a group of pictures that centers around a wooded area in Forest Park (the urban park of St. Louis). I have made a few exceptions to that, as you will see. Enjoy.

All Nikon N80 or N8008s with Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D or Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G lenses. All of the image are hand-developed and printed, and then scanned on an Epson Expressions 10000XL Scanner.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE the b/w film work. it makes me so happy to see someone still working in this medium. I fell in love in the lab in HS,

    it’s amazing, I have a busy online art life, but the velvety blacks of real film photography somehow come through even on a blog.

    The more of your B&W I see, the more I like. I am especially taken with the first image in this post.
