Haha Julien...

 

Had a long talk with sports illustrated and Time magazine photographer Bill Frakes today about how obsolete film is. I guess it's easy to say that shooting film is a ridiculous notion when you have unlimited access to Nikon cameras and Nikkor lenses. Learned a lot of cool stuff from him though check his portfolio out http://billfrakes.com/main.php#/PORTFOLIO/Faces/1

RPD 2.0? I got hit in the face with a soccer ball, and my viewfinder eye is swollen. Photographer problems.

Good timing on v.2 Julien. I guess I'm more or less done with college as of last night. Still have one more exam in a couple weeks but it should be chill. Moving out of my apartment in a few hours, hopefully before my hangover sets in as I slept only like three hours last night after going out to Distortion Festival in Copenhagen. Borrowed a GF1 on Wednesday to take some shots for Girls are Awesome, first time trying to shoot non-dslr digital and I didn't like it at all :( So then I just shot the rest on my stylus epic and had a great time not knowing how any of the photos turned out.

So from here out I won't have a real place to live until fall, ramblin' on all summer.

What happened?

 

Edit:

 

Now more hyped than ever to shoot. I've got a shit load of film, and I've got a bulk roll of hp5 coming with 20 other black and white 400 rolls on the way so I can start bulk loading and shooting a lot more.

I'm having drying issues with my color negatives.

 

I don't know if different films dry better than others, but for some reason the last 3 rolls of Kodak Gold 400 that I've shot have had major residue left behind even after using photoflo. I've never had this problem with Portra. I even mixed a new batch of chemicals thinking maybe they were getting too old, but still streaks everywhere, even after a second wash/photoflo.

sup guys?

 

EDIT: @beach bum, use distilled water with your photoflo etc. cuts down alot on streaks. you should use distilled water for every chemical in a perfect world. but it doesn't always happen.

I'll give it a try. It's weird cause it doesn't happen with the Portra, just the Gold.

 

And thanks for resending those prints. I got them yesterday and they look great!

Pick up a hiking backpack with the hip straps and everything. Makes all of the difference in the world.

 

I need to buy some developing supplies. My collection of exposed rolls of black and white is growing quickly.

I was so fucking confused why RPD was closed. I just kept refreshing it.

 

Got moved in to my new place, pretty stoked on it, but I have so much fucking unpacking to do. Pro tip, don't buy too many cameras. I can't find any of my shit cause its spread across like twenty boxes.

RIP RPD I remember when bayko gave birth to you :(

 

Psyched on photography/life at the moment. Mamiya 7 is the coolest camera ever and it's almost summer. Also, hoarding all of my pictures to make a zine hopefully in the near future.
