I’m still having fun cropping and filtering my film photos and uploading them to Instagram. If you’d like to follow me there, I’m mobilene. Look me up! Or here’s a link to my stream: http://instagram.com/mobilene.
I really enjoy just noodling around with these images, seeing what happens when I try this filter or that. I love how I often get a completely different feel compared to the originals. The results are lo-res, most suitable for viewing on a phone or, as long as you don’t look at them at full resolution, on a computer. I’m sure they’d make terrible prints.
I tag all of my work on Instagram with #ishootfilm, among other tags. It’s also fun to see what work others are posting under that tag. Using it, I’ve found and followed a few other photographers who do interesting work.
Here are a few of my favorite photos since the last time I shared these with you. This is the covered bridge at Bridgeton, shot with my Kodak Monitor Six-20 on expired Kodacolor II film which wast misprocessed as black-and-white. The filter I chose added the yellowing effects around the edges, which makes the bridge itself pop.
A sculpture outside at the Indiana State Museum, shot with my Pentax Spotmatic on probably Arista Premium 400. I applied a tilt-shift filter.
A daylily, shot with my Nikon N60 on expired Kodak Gold 200. The filter I used promised a sunlight effect, which washed out the upper right corner a little.
The Methodist church in Morgantown, IN. Nikon N60 on expired Kodak Gold 200. I forget what filter I used but it really brought out the colors in the bricks.
A suburban street corner. Rollei A110, expired Fuji Superia 200 film, size 110. I applied three separate filters to get this unreal look.
Dodge Charger at the Mecum auction. Olympus XA on Arista Premium 400. The filter I used only added this blue tint.
1963 Corvette at the Mecum auction. Olympus XA on Arista Premium 400. I applied a light-leak filter that gave this purple effect, and tilted the image off center.
Here’s a gallery of even more of these photos.
