I have over 800 film photos in my library for the past year. That’s prolific. Of course several days in Sicily with Ektar film helped with the totals.
With the digital shots it’s easy to pin the date of capture to the image. With film I get the date the image was scanned. So putting these in some kind of monthly order doesn’t make as much sense. Grouping them by camera or film type seems much more interesting.
I have only two film cameras: a Canon AE-1 Program and a Rollei 35 S. They both take great photos.
My favorite film is probably Ektar 100. But the weather, color and light most appropriate for Ektar is my favorite weather too. Maybe that clouds my judgement.
Anyway, here are twelve fifteen (I couldn’t drop any) film shots from 2019 that I especially enjoy:
So comes the end of the year. Even an end to the decade. Five more years and we are 1/4 of the way through the 21st century.
I went back through many of my photos from the past year. I was going to pick my favorite from each month. But what is a favorite? Mine change from day to day. Mostly I like the black and white shots. Especially if they are a bit dark and geometric. I don’t post photos of people (although I make an exception below). My favorite tonight-when I’m tired, when I’m just starting to put this together-could be looked at critically tomorrow. Why did I like this shot?
You are not here to read. You are here for photography. Here are my shots:
Awhile back I declared Silberra u400 my favorite film after shooting a roll through my Rollei 35. I loaded another roll, this time in the Canon AE-1 Program. My opinion regarding this film is unchanged
We’ve had incredibly bright days. Where is the rain? The 400 speed film works better when it is a bit dark. Maybe overcast? Maybe after some rain? That’s what I had anticipated when I loaded the camera. It’s Seattle! It’s November!
Anyway, the following were shot over Thanksgiving break (the last week of November for those living in turkey free zones).
