The other day I took a few rolls of film to blacks to be developed. I had bought these rolls of black & white film at blacks, so I assumed the sensible thing to do would be to take them back for developing. Well, turns out they no longer develop B&W film. Neither does Walmart, any grocery stores, or the specialty camera stores in the area. There is but one lonely studio that now develops black and white film, and they are incredibly out of the way. Sigh.
Lately I feel like shooting film is more frustrating than therapeutic. It is so much easier to use my DSLR that does video, and I can view the results immediately. I struggle with what to do, since this entire blog is based on the premise of film photography, yet I haven't posted film shots in what feels like months. I can either give up on film and re-brand, or continue to spend money on (and being frustrated with) the film development process. Has anyone else had a similar situation with their blog? What did you do?
