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.
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.
While covering the recent Strumbellas concert, I met a friendly photographer taking instant photos of guests using an old Polaroid Land Camera! We spoke about polaroid cameras, instant film and he told me the sad news about Fujifilm discontinuing the last peel-apart film – FP-100C.
I just watched this video from the excellent Youtube Channel The Art of Photography posted by Photographer Stephen Thorley on the Google + Film and Analogue Photography Community. If you have the chance, check the group out. I just joined up and it has nice, active users. Also check out the videos on The Art of Photography Youtube Channel when you can.
I’m taking a look around to see what sorts of film are out these days for 35mm and there are surpringly few!
I hope you all had a great weekend!
Exciting things have been going on for me in New York City, so stay tuned!
In the meantime, I wanted to share the photo above with you. It’s an experiment I did in Photoshop CS6, combining a texture with a street photo I snapped with my cell!
