      note: these photos were originally for a black and white film class, have more coming - some of the developing may look weird b/c yes we used reels not machines ( I know I know.. kind of old- fashioned) and it was my first time using this medium

      I'm just going to be brutally honest here.

      You mention that these were for a B&W film class, so I'm curious if the assignment was merely working with the medium or if there is something else at work here. For me at least, these do not hold any artistic value and their technical merit seems the be lacking as well. In other words, not only do I not understand your intended message (if any) with these photos, but it would seem that whatever film process you are using, it didn't work out so well.

      I'm definitely not sure of the meaning of this. Unfortunately, whatever process you used to expose or scan ruined these photographs.

      Judging by the sneakers in the one picture, I am assuming some of these were taken some what recently. Are you experimenting with old film and an old camera?

      Could you clarify more with what you are doing or trying to get out of this?

      Hey guys! First of all thanks again for critiquing my photos. As you can tell from the way the pictures turned out it was my first time taking a black and white film photography class and our class did not use machines which you can probably tell from some of the quality of the photos that something occurred in the developing of the photos/ light exposure. For the class, we were required to develop our film on reels and it took me a few times before I got the hang of it. I also do know that some of the photos were processed with bad developer because it was sitting in the lab a few days. I do however have even better quality photos that I'll be able to show all of you once I receive the results of my final.

      To clarify the artistic style I was going for, as far as artistry I really enjoy capturing the emotions and expressions of people which I attempted to do in the photographs above. Each are categorized as far as assignment category. I guess right now then I am asking you guys to evaluate my artistry content.

      #1-> professional portrait ( used umbrella lights)
      #2-> photo story ( wanted to center the story around people and them admiring the church's structure as I did)
      I thought this couple was particularly interesting because of their enjoyment in the beauty of the architecture while relaxing in the nature like setting around the church
      #3-> photo story- thanksgiving dinner- mom talking to dog (shows maternal like qual. in char. multitasking with cooking and caring for family
      #4-> 1st week, bad representation (innocence girl watching father)
      #5-> raindrops
      #6-> portrait (outside)- character ( expression and prop- shawl she's wearing)

      I guess to clarify then my style is very much journalistic in some ways, I love to tell a story
