Where Memories Go

Where Memories Go

We’ve been having a lot of foggy nights and mornings this Autumn here on the Korean peninsula. I tried to capture the atmosphere of a foggy night on film. Some shots came out pretty well, but I’ll only be sharing this one for now. I took color photos ( and some double exposures ) with a Holga and black and white film photos with the Rolleiflex. I might expand it into a series, but I’m not sure just yet. I’ll have to develop a few more rolls and see how they turn out.  This particular photo was captured with a Rolleiflex Automat A on Kodak Tmax 100 film. The exposure was roughly 40 seconds at f11. I used such a small aperture because I wanted the image to be in focus – it was really hard to manually focus the Rolleiflex in such a dark and foggy setting. As with all my black and white / black and white IR film, I personally developed this roll in the darkroom with D76. Enjoy! © Patrick Bresnahan

    • Thanks! Yes, Tmax 100 is a lovely film. The grain is super smooth and its tones are wonderful. This particular photo was captured on fresh film, but I’ve found that expired Tmax 100 looks great too.

  1. Really, really great captures….especially with the low light. The grain really adds a lot to the photo.

    Do you ever let people use small copies of your photos (credited, of course)…

    • Thanks, grain is another reason why I shoot film. I love the way certain films give a little extra texture to the image.

      For sure, I don’t mind people using my photos as long as I’m credited ^^ I don’t make any money from this site or from my photography. For now, I just want to explore film photography and share my findings with the world. I hope to produce images that are decent enough for people to reconsider using film themselves : )

      • I’ve never worked with film — back in the day, when I was 18, and first interested in photography, I didn’t have the money to buy lots of film, or have my own darkroom. So, I sort of drifted away from photography — until the digital age arrived. Now, I cheat, and use software to get the grainy texture on some of my black and whites.

        I’ve been working on a story, and was having a tough time with the beginning; when I saw this photo, the opening scene of my story popped into my head, so I’d love to use the image in the story. It’s a story that will just end up on my blog … and, I’ll be sure to credit and link the photo back to your site.

        I appreciate you letting me use the image. And, I really do like your photography — you need to post more often!

      • No problem, I’m glad I was able to help with your story!

        I’ll try to post more often. I’m pretty swamped these days, and I haven’t had too much time to blog. I also don’t want to put up ‘meh’ kind of photos. I’m trying to capture and share images that I feel are interesting or somewhat unique. So that means I have to use some discretion. Anyhow, I have plenty of older photos that I took long before I started blogging. I should look through those and try to post some ones that are decent enough to share. Anyhow, thanks for your comments and support~!
