chicago in black and white :: chicago lifestyle photographer

As some of you may remember, I took a trip to Chicago back in March to visit my dear friend Miranda. Right before the trip, in a dark corner of my closet, I came across a 35mm camera that I bought for a photography class my freshmen year of college. I decided to dust it off, pop in the expired black and white film, put on my 50 f1.4, and see what happened.

I finally sent the film off to Richard Photo Lab a couple of weeks ago, and I was thrilled when I got an email a couple of days ago with the scans. Though I'm not gonna be shooting any weddings with film anytime soon, it was fun to revisit a new medium. Here are a few of my personal favorites...

I loved this exhibit of the Thorne Miniature Rooms at the Art Institute... I'm convinced I could spend every day of my life in that place!
