About Me

My photo
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.

Field Trip - Hodgin Valley Farm

This past Tuesday my classmates, teacher, and I went on a trip to the Hodgin Valley Farm in Pleasant Garden, NC [x]. It was freezing cold and rainy that day, but I'm pretty sure I got some good pictures. It's unfortunate that I didn't not have as many rolls of film on me as I would've liked, because there were so many amazing things there to take pictures of. My teacher said that if we liked it we could go back, however. There were chickens, geese, swans, a peacock, horses, cows, a donkey, and goats. There was a lake, a barn/farm, a pretty landscape, and an array of tools, tractors, carts, etc. to look at and get shots of.
When we got back from the trip, I was so excited to go to the photo lab that night to develop my prints. I set up the balancing scale, got out my supplies, and set up the dark room for reeling my film, but unfortunately there wasn't anymore kBr. Also, I wasn't chancing messing up my film by over or underdeveloping it, because I'm not experimenting with any recipes other than the one I have; I'll just have to wait until we get some kBr shipped in and just keep taking photographs in the mean time.
