In the past I made projects for myself such as that, but more about a place than people.

That's interesting.


Me, I've always found graphic imagery (such as buildings and food on table-tops) easier but have come to realize that since I apparently know how to open new relationships (was always easy to get work from art directors), similar personal stuff might apply to openly making photos of just-plain-folks.

''''AND fwiw...

I did keep a minty Pentax film camera and stainless reels/tanks, so I didn't drop film cold turkey.

So I MAY shoot many shots of an especially boring neighborhood with 35mm, develop the film (nobody uses labs do they?), arrange on a light box, and re-photograph and reprint BIG (13X19 is my limit. That would mean the photograph would be one-shot, sorta.

Big talk. Will I do it?

You can also print small and send as postcards 🙂 My opinion is always do it. There's nothing to regret about doing it, normally.
