Summer Photographs in January

I still shoot film.  Processing the film, making contact sheets, editing, and then scanning and printing is time consuming.  We often don't get to see the completed body of work I do during our family summer trips until mid winter.  It's a great time of year to work on our ongoing family history--the framed images that line the hallway of our home and cover the 18 years of our kid's lives.  I love the speed and ease of digital image making but this slow process is like a wonderful alchemy and the richness of these silver images cannot be matched by pixels.  Matting, framing, sequencing, and hanging the images are next and we'll show you how we do that over the next few entries.
