Recent Exposures - 35mm Black and White Film

I just had ten rolls of black & white negative film (Kodak Tri-X 400) developed with photographs taken during trips on the Chesapeake this summer. These were shot on my first camera that I had when I was 13 years old, a Nikon n90's 35mm film camera. Although the lenses in my camera bag have improved significantly, the camera has the same functions that it did 18 years ago.

The black and white film will never be a substitute to digital but it is a great way to authentically create a nostalgic feel in photographs. A timeless subject like 'Working the Water' naturally lends itself to shooting with black and white film like the masters - Aubrey Bodine, Marion Warren and Robert DeGast - did decades ago.
