Photography in the Raw

During the course of my ongoing archiving project, I stumbled across two short strips of black and white negatives shot by me sometime during grade eight, when I was studying photography as part of the industrial arts curriculum. The photography component was the only section of industrial arts I enjoyed at all; leather working, pottery, woodworking and power mechanics were all a bust, though I do appreciate the hands-on experience.

The following photos are pretty bad, but they have the virtue of being shot with a real 35 mm camera using real black and white film. The only shot that turned out at all is the last; I was attempting to film a moving vehicle and produce motion blur in the background, an effect that I think I achieved.

All of these photos were shot just outside Leduc Junior High School, and I developed the images in the school's lab.
