Film Life – My own film work with Kodak

I haven’t really been posting much of my own work which is partially because I have been up to my ears in school work. Going out and shooting if it isn’t work for takes free time which I haven’t had. Also, takes about three days for my film to get processed! Anyways, I figured I’d share with you guys some of the Forgotten Rolls material. I found two rolls at the bottom of my backpack and figured I’d see what was on them.

So yeah, I swear I actually do know what I’m talking about when I sit here and blog about film and give you guys advice. I don’t know very much but I do know the basics! I’m still learning and developing my own style (haha, get it? developing?). Try out all different types of film! I have fun testing out products and waiting to see the results, kinda like Christmas morning. I always feel like it’s super rewarding to have a roll turn out, all 36 or 24 frames being successful. I love to photograph people on the street, especially urban settings, so if you ever find yourself on my blog, please drop me a line. 🙂

  1. Love them….especially black & whites. They are so crisp….and it seemed like they bring a strong focus to the subjects…

  2. Love the Tri-X shots and portra 400 is always wonderful!

    FYI – A less expensive option your readers may want to consider is to shoot Arista Premium 400 sold by Freestyle photography. It runs about 50% cheaper per 36 exposure roll than Tri-X and is in fact the same film. My understanding is that they cut this stock from the edges of the master rolls and package it exclusively for Freestyle. I have shot over 100 hundred rolls of it so far and never found a single defect and reading blogs/forums on the net suggests that nobody else has had any complaints about the film either.
