Macro Setup

365 Film challenge update!

Ok, I’m on a roll! It has not been easy and it’s not always inspiring. I’m a busy guy. I have two active kids, a wife that works full time, I have a part time job and a weekly DJ gig, I’ve been sick, I’ve had to clear snow, BUT I still have managed to do it. Stuffing a film frame or two on top of that has not been easy but it’s been fun.

Day 4: I used the Canon WP1 (portra NC) and shot some desolate, low saturation images of a windswept snowy parking lot.<br

365 Film Challenge Accepted!

I’m going to give it a go. I’m going to shoot at least one frame a day for all of 2017! Medium format, large format, 35mm, it’s all game. People, urbex, murex, pinup, macro, studio, there’s no limits.

Lol “So nowadays there is absolutely no good reason for anyone to shoot on 35mm film except because they want to. Maybe you’ve heard of Lomography, which is the art of making people think their messed up crappy photos are a good thing. I’m not knocking lomography because it’s, like, art, isn’t it? But monkeys smearing their s**t on the wall can be regarded as art by some people too. Take a photo of THAT

When should you shoot film?

If you’re a film shooter chances are extremely high you’re also a digital shooter. Heck, with a camera in every cell phone it’d be difficult not to be. As one goes clicking about in their normal, everyday, life suddenly film photography can take on an increased value. After all it does cost money to shoot film! This extra consideration if unchecked can lead to a paralysis in film shooting. The FPP calls

Is this a Golden Era for Film Photographers?

Ok, right off the bat I’m not saying this is a golden era of film photographers. Certainly the time period when everyone had to shoot film was the golden era of film photographers.

I’m talking about a golden era for film photographers, in that there may not be a better time to be one.

Lets start with becoming a film photographer. The barriers to becoming a film photographer, mainly money, time, and knowledge, have been virtually eradicated. Now there’s a certain amount of prestige
