i am not a photographer..

..until I step into a darkroom and command it.

I'm serious. I found this old school flash and a B&W film that expired in 1980 at Camberwell market for $4. I plan to use that film only when I have access to a darkroom and fully understand the concept of printing them with my hands.

For this series, I was using an expired film from 2008(I think), and I was amazed with the results! It's my first time using a "non C-41" film (Big W can't print em, it's done in a darkroom). A Rollei Retro 100, made in Germany. I was skeptical about shooting at ISO100, but that didn't seem to be a problem at all with the prints!



NO EDITING WHATSOEVER.

For the first time I saw Melbourne in a new light.
