Creativity block is something well-documented in the artistic community. It happens to a lot of us, for any known or unknown number of reasons.
The last few (two or three) years, I was in a funk, to say the least, with my photography. What started out as fun and an expression of myself became something sort of technical--how to get the shot, lighting, posing, pixellation, etc...I still shot occasionally, friends' weddings, events, portraits on the fly...but I found what hindered me most was carrying around bulky equipment and lack of inspiration.
So, after finding a group of hybrid shooters (that shoot both digital and film), I decided to go back to the roots--all basic black and white, manual (rangefinder manual), and develop my own film. These are my results, and I am enjoying this process tremendously.
All images shot with Voigtlander Bessa R4M, Nokton 50mm f1.4, Ilford HP5 Plus pushed to 1600 ISO, and processed with Ilford HC. I found I liked the more even-toned outcome of diluting the developer thinner, and processed longer.
