Easter at the Grandparents

I spent the Easter holiday in Bonita Springs, FL with my grandparents and a lot of my family. They live in a retirement community which consists of trailers of all different sizes and colors with an array of lawn decorations. The night shots are all long exposures, I mostly shot my Papa and the strange community they live in. All images were shot with Kodak Portra 160NC 35mm film.
The rest of the images from this weekend are on my flickr:

Tin Types

This was another class assignment in my alternative processes class. We coated our own plates and developed on the tin using positives and an enlarger. This is my favorite process for developing photos, we only developed using this process for about two weeks, I wish there was more time so I could perfect my images a bit.
These are a few of my favorites, the first two are long exposures of construction at a nearby hospital and the portrait was taken in the studio at a high aperture.

Spotted Trout

This was done using the Platinum Palladium process. I caught this trout one afternoon and took it home to fillet it and thought it would make an interesting triptych. The platinum palladium process gives the images a brown-yellow color with a lot of contrast which I thought looked good with these photos. I mounted the photos on an old 1" x 6" board but the photos got wiped from my drive, Im going to retake them and put them up soon.
