Out West: Mother Nature on Film

More film photos of the incredible scenery of the American Southwest.

These last photos were from a roll that got jammed in my camera and I ended up ruining what quite possibly could have been one of the greatest photos I've ever taken. I'm surprised that so many photos actually came out pretty well. Lots of light leaks but otherwise some pretty decent images.

This was the last shot that I got before my film jammed. Shortly after taking this shot the herd of bison got really close to us and I quickly threw on my 80-205mm lens and managed to get two shots of the largest male bison angrily looking directly into my camera lens. He was so close that his face filled my entire frame. Kaylah was begging me back away but I was desperate to get the perfect shot and wanted to make sure that my focusing was spot on. After getting my shot I went to advance the film and heard the unmistakable sound of 'crunchy film'. I did my best to unjam the film with my camera buried in my camera bag shielding it from light but ended up exposing both frames of the bison. Some things just weren't meant to be I guess.

Photos taken with Canon TL QL, 50mm f/1.8, 28mm f/2.5, and 80-200mm f/4.5; using Kodak Gold 200, and Fujicolor Superia 200 film.
