First outting with 4×5 camera – Oakland Cemetary Atlanta

Getting back into film photography is challenging enough these days. So I decidedĀ  to take a darkroom class from the Spruil arts center in Dunwoody. I had to spend the Saturday before my first class getting to know my camera again and decided to head down to Oakland Cemetary in Atlanta. I managed to get 4 shots (x2 exposures each for film testing). Every shot had its challenges. The sun was too bright or shadows too dark. Or contrast between shadow and light was high. All in all it was a great learning experience. Here are the images I walked away with. Not fine art but not bad considering the learning curve for 4×5 and film processing and developing. These are scans of the working 8×10 prints. Finer images may come one day but these are in the 80% bucket.
