Here’s a photo that was taken with my Canon film camera 12 years ago. Yes, film! If you look closely, you will see white specks. Those are dust specks on the negative. And if you look closely again, you will see film grain. Holy cow!
My workflow for this photo was as follows
Visit the Como Park Conservatory in Minnesota
Take the photo
Develop the film in my makeshift darkroom
Scan the negative with my very slow high resolution film and slide scanner
Put the scanned file in a folder on my Mac
Burn the folder to a CD (yes, a CD)
Put the CD into a CD case
Put the CD case in my very crowded closet
Forget about the CD case for 12 years
Look for a shirt that fell off the hanger in my closet
Find the CD case
Forget about the shirt and everything else
Post the photo after minor retouching in Aperture
There you go. And, if you ask me, I like the photo but it’s not all that special. As if no one else ever stood here and took the exact picture. . . .
