Steve McCurry with the last roll of Kodachrome. Epic combination and goodbye Kodachrome. Anyway I bet all photographer will know who is Steve McCurry. He is the man who shot the photo of the famous Afghanistan girl, Sharbat Gula. The photo was taken using a Nikon FM2 with Nikkor 105mm F2.5 lens. The film used was Kodachrome.
On the next post, i will post the 36 exposure of the last Kodachrome by Steve McCurry.
One of the difficult things to do besides shooting hand-held with Pentax 6x7 (shutter speed lower than 1/15) is to load the 120mm film. This is one of the many How-To videos from Youtube.
It's been months that I've ordered it and finally I received it from Turkey.
Yes, it is the APS type of film, Advanced Photo System. It is a type of discontinued film that was introduced the 1996. It was marketed under Kodak as Advantix, Fujifilm as Nexia, Konica as Centuria and Agfa as Futura. It is only compatible with camera dedicated to accept APS film format, such as Canon EOS IX, Nikon Pronea, Minolta Vectis and etc.
The film is 24 mm wide, and has three image formats:
It's 2014, yet the world hasn't come to an end. So another new year for new resolutions. i bet the whole blog-sphere is full of resolutions, here comes mine:
1. Boost the sales of my pharmacy store
It's been half a year i decided to open a pharmacy at Kunak, Sabah. Not really a great place but the advantage of it is .........we are the only pharmacy within 100km radius. That sounds like MONOPOLY THE MARKET. Anyway, new plans, promotion ideas and health awareness activity will be held throughout 2014.
2. Shooting in 70% film and 30% digital
2014 will be the year to change my photography to mainly film (135mm and 120mm) and try to shoot less with digital. The 30% digital is mainly during my close friends wedding.
3. Learn and start to develop film by myself
Since i am going to shoot 70% in film, so i think learning how to develop my own film should be a good way to save some cost. Lets try with black & white film with D76 developer for the basic and slowly try the more natural friendly ways of using Caffenol aka caffeine + ascorbic acid + washing soda.
4. Project 365 x VSCO x B&W
Project 365 is some project I always wanna try, but till now I started a few times but none of them really reached 100th photo @.@ how impatient am I. T.T So this time i wanna try to reach as much as i can. Duh! Anyway i posted the first 31st photos taken during 2013 December. Nice start right ?
5. Keep Fit
This should be the last resolution of the year 2014. KEEP FIT. Haha, that's all, no explanation and no elaboration.
