First off, I want to thank all of you so much for keeping this blog at number #1. I just checked and it’s still the top result for “writer photographer nyc” on Google Search!
Hey all, I hope you’ve had a great week. I’ve been busy shooting 35mm film! This morning, I just finished a roll with my Nikon F3HP. And I’ve also been shooting a test roll with my “new” used Olympus XA2 point and shoot 35mm camera (pictured above). I just shot an entire roll with it and will bring it down to Luster Photo & Digital for development.
The last couple weeks I’ve been obsessed with researching 35mm half-frame cameras. I’m taking a trip in October and I want to bring a 35mm film camera, but don’t want my Nikon F3 getting stolen. For those of you unfamiliar with half-frame cameras, they were big from the the 1960s to the 1980s, when processing film was expensive.
I hope you had a great weekend! I had a restful one, the first in over a month, so it was a great relief. As my interest in street photography develops, I’ve been thinking a lot about purchasing the vaunted FujiFilm 100T, a camera a lot of street photographers have been talking about. Being ever-thrifty, I realized I should do a bit of research on YouTube and found the following two camera reviews. They’re good and, incredibly, the first review even takes place during a huge protest?!?!
Hello readers! I hope your respective weekends were great! I’ve been thinking a lot about shooting black and white 35mm film and developing it myself. Then scanning the negatives.
Yesterday, I was sad to hear that actor Alan Rickman passed away.
I was lucky enough to meet him at BADA’s Midsummer in Oxford Program back in 2004. He was kind enough to sit while I snapped some 35mm film photos of him (see above). Needless to say, the experience totally made my day! I was so psyched!
He was a great actor and I’ll miss seeing him in the movies.
Rest well, Alan Rickman. Thank you!
A lot of good stuff has been happening – and Christmas is right around the corner!
