We haven't had kBr in the photo lab for quite some time, now. I think for over two weeks. If you don't know what kBr is, check out my first post [x]. If you can recall over a week ago, I visited Hodgin Valley Farm, and I believe I got some terrific images. However, I haven't been able to develop my negatives because the recipe I use requires kBr and we didn't have any. According to my professor, it will arrive today at 11:00 am. I'm supposed to be presenting in today's critique, but I have nothing to show. Here's the ultimate task... I have to wake up at 10:00 am to head to lab so that I can measure out and mix my chemicals for development (30 minutes), develop my negatives (30 minutes), wait for them to dry (20 minutes), then go immediately to the Mims Digital Lab and produce some prints for the critique. I have to do all of this before 4:00 pm. o_O May the force be with me.
- I'm a Guilford College graduate with a B.S. in Criminal Justice; I minored in Visual Arts Photography. My blog tracks the highs and lows of my experience in a Film Photography course during the Spring of 2013 and up to the present, as I delve into digital photography. I may even include other mediums of art such as acrylic paint, graphite drawings, etc. I'll talk about my experiences snapping photos or simply snapping from frustration as well as my successes and failures, tips and tricks that I've learned, and exploring the photography/art world through the lens of a Black woman.
