Film Photography

#ishootfilm

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.

This is the dragon ride at the Indiana State Fair, shot with my Olympus XA on Fujicolor Superia X-tra 800. I applied a “viewfinder” filter in BeFunky for this look.

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.
