Shooting film when is it cool to shoot digital: 35 mm, medium and large format, super 8, and regular 8. The post is usually digital (has to be if it is posted here), but where you come from sometimes changes where you are going. Life is two short to be recorded with a narrow exposure latitude.
Films shot on film, film photography in a digital age, and random images made possible only by a cell phone that just happens to be on me at the right light moment.
Shot on my mamiya 1000 DTL, sunny 16 rule (no battery door to even know if the meter works, I picked up at an antique store some time ago for dirt cheap. However the camera ate my film, literally it ripped the film out of the canister, I opened the back not realizing this and exposed the last few frames and got a few like this too. I slammed the back of the camera closed as fast as I could knowing what I had done, then took it to my local developer who opened it in the dark room and got the film out. Great work Aker Imaging (Houston, TX) getting my film out of the camera! 50mm prime lens for the win.

I tend to go more for higher contrast and a little more abstract and organic ;). I liked all of it though. Where are you developing your film? Are you developing it?
Great to see you too. I was thinking about the photos I took for that class a day or two before I ran into you. Funny how that works.
Good question on developing, it is harder to get film developed these days. I like AZ photo lab, they do really great work. They use dip and dunk so your film dosent pass over rollers. Fancy, but it looks great!
Then there is Dwayne’s photo in Kansas. I send stuff to them when I have a bunch. They are cheaper but not as good as az.
I have develope most of the black and white stuff, but I moved back from Fort Worth and my chemicals are somewhere now, a little lost in the shuffle.
