In-Depth BP #3
It’s already week five and I’m super excited! However, with the sudden downfall in snow, I have not seen Ms. Learmonth in a while. Quick breakdown: During our first meeting, she discussed using the dark room and she said that I need to come in at block 2 for two days and learn how to use it with the rest of the class. We both agreed on a Monday/Wednesday and I went on to emailing Mr. Quinto (my block 2 teacher) on skipping two classes for this opportunity. But when I woke up on Monday, the snow had covered the streets and I could barely get to school myself. I managed to get down to a bus stop and get to school but It seems like Ms. Learmonth had the same problem as me and couldn’t make it to school. Tuesday was a district snow day and on Wednesday we both agreed to do it the following day so we could both catch up on what we’ve missed. Yet, on Thursday when I walked into the photography class, A substitute told me she wasn’t here today. I’ve emailed Ms. Learmonth asking for a concrete time this week to meet up and I’m currently waiting for a reply. Even though this has set me back a week on my goals, I don’t regret it as I have learned that schedules don’t always go to plan and sometimes altercations must be made. On my own time, I’ve gone out and bought ILFORD DELTA 400 black and white film for both the 35mm and the medium format with 24 exposures. I plan on meeting up with some friends this week and try to get some portraits and other interesting B/W subjects. See you next week!
