NO RHYME, NO REASON – Nashville Streets Part 2 (5 of 5)

with No Comments

 

The title says it all. These shots did not fall into any particular category, so I placed them in this last post to complete the series of posts from my Part 2 adventure in downtown Nashville.  All of these shots were taken with my Olympus OM1 SLR loaded with Kodak TRI-X 400. All images were developed and scanned by the FINDLab in Orem, Utah. The roll of film that made up the series of images in my last 5 posts including this one was highly anticipated. After seeing the results from my first developed roll from the FINDLab, Nashville Streets Part 1, I couldn’t wait to see the images in Part 2. I am very pleased with my exposures as well as the subject matter. I believe my images get better each time I go out. I think the biggest reason for the improvement is that I’m becoming more selective about what I shoot. Anticipation, standing in the right place and watching the light are the three main areas that I am constantly trying to improve. Regardless of what I might think I know about photography and more specifically street photography, there is ALWAYS room for improvement. The learning NEVER stops!

I hope you have enjoy these series of images from this post and my others. Nashville is a fun place to shoot. There’s something happening on any given day or night. I’ve learned a great deal from these last couple of film rolls. I will apply what I learned to my next outing and hope to get even better images. Next, I will post some shots from my first experience with Ilford HP5+. I’ve read that HP5+ is Ilford’s TRIX-400. After seeing my scans, I would have to say I agree. I believe I can detect a little more grain, but I believe that was due to the exposure and lighting for those particular images. That is not a complaint. I love the texture of the grain. It adds so much character to the image. My next series of posts will have more street photography from downtown Nashville and some really cool urban cityscape shots under the morning fog. Thanks for reading!
