The Death of film photography is way over done! Let's just let everyone do what makes them Happy and stop talking about it! If you like film you need to use it to keep it around, end of discussion. Seems like enough people do like film. So Lomography has joined forces with the surviving UK Kodak brand, Kodak Alaris, to sell film and paper through its website.
I've played with the Lomo Fisheye a bit.....But I'm really more of a Holga Fan when it comes to Lo-Fi Photography:
You may have already seen this on line: Elk vs. Photographer. It didn't actually seem like a very aggressive situation to me. This Elk could have made things really nasty, even with those small antlers. Instead, just seems like a typical teenaged boy getting a little frisky. Buy a good telephoto and give the Boys some space........
But even very cute guys like this are still wild animals and deserve respect:
And if Mom is nearby, you could be in a world of hurt!
Now I can cross this off my 'To Do' list of New Year's Resolutions from the past 2 years..........
Photo taken by Donald with the Mamiya 6 (T-MAX film). He claims that I wouldn't let him use the M6, so he supported me buying the M7. I say he wasn't using it and I didn't want it to go to waste........That's my story and I'm sticking to it. More details on the Mamiya 7 to follow, as we spend this week looking at my camera test pix.
And me photographing Donald with the Mamiya 7. Notice the difference in aspect ratio. This is the 50mm lens. I could get the 43mm lens and go 'super wide angle'.
Honestly, Last Years Zombies were a lot more interesting. Through the wonders of forgetting what film was still left in a camera, I have more images from Last Year that I developed last week. And a film test for Kodak P3200 B&W film. So let's get this Party Started:
I spent Sunday afternoon in the darkroom, developing images from the 2013 Denver Zombie Crawl......I'll be posting them for Halloween (although Donald may post some sooner on Longs Peak Journal). So you'll have to wait.........
In the interim, we will takes a final look at the High Country, which is now snowed in (even a couple of ski resorts have opened).
Lots of nice photos of the camera on Camera-wiki, but not reproduced here because they are under copyright. So I'll just post a self-protrait from last year featuring my (inherited from father-in-law) Rollei TLR:
I'll have to look into this. As a Minolta Collector I may need to acquire an Autocord.
Some people crop in the camera. I obvious do most of my cropping after the fact. One way you capture it all and sort it out later; the other way you are more selective at the start, but you could also miss some interesting detail that you didn't see initially.
Often there are legitimate reasons for printing it either way...........
