I keep coming back to Kodak Gold 200 for a number of reasons. Reason 1 is the price. In Canada I can purchase a 24 exposure 3 pack from Walmart for only $12.99, that’s only $4.33 a roll or 18 cents a frame. Now that’s cheap. Reason number 2 is it’s unique look that tends to favour warm tones even in mid-day light. These shot’s were taken on a Pentax PC35-AFM point and shoot camera, a true thrift store gem.
The journey of learning analog photography can sometimes be a frustrating one. You see the work that others can create using the same film stock and you wonder how their final results are so amazing. One of these days I am going to bite the bullet and get my 35mm film professionally scanned so that I can see if the results are that much more superior to what I am experiencing with my Epson V600. Below are a few frames from our last holiday to Disneyland's magic kingdom. I shot these images on Kodaks consumer grade Gold 200 film with the Pentax PC35AF-M point and shoot.
When the lights go down in California Adventure A whole new world (sorry for the Little Mermaid reference) reveals itself. Below are a selection of my favourites from tonight’s walk around.
If there is one thing that I should have learned by now is how much gear should I pack when I travel. It seems that I can never decide what to pair down when it comes to my walk around kit. It’s probably a fear of missing the shot that causes me to overpack. This trip I brought along my Canon 6D with 24-70 f2.8, a Pentax point and shoot film camera, the Zhyiun Smooth Q gimbal and the iPhone 7 with moment wide lens. Plus everything that comes along with it including batteries chargers etc. After 11 hours walking in Disneyland I realized that I took probably 70% of my images on the iPhone while shooting the remaining images on my film camera and the 6D. Not sure if I’ll be able to leave the Canon 6D in the hotel tomorrow but I definitely would like a lighter load for tomorrow’s travels. Here is a few of my favourites from today.
