Webin' the Net is a platform for students from the Art Institute to participate in a group blog. Each week students from Web Portfolio I will come up with a concept to illustrate with a photo and a few thoughts about how that photo fits the concept.
We call them "conceptlogs".

Film to Digital: Chris Bebout
Film is beautiful but sensitive medium that I have just started to understand over the past 3 months. This idea of working in complete darkness is the exact opposite of what photography is about. The feeling of being in a developing room and placing a black and white negative into chemicals, that could degrade the image if not done properly is very nerve racking but exciting once the process is finished. The lights are now on and the negative is being held up to the light....its as if this weight as been lifted. The negative is sharp, exposed correctly, and clean. Now its time to print! Whole other ball game!
