Island X Film…. My new YouTube channel dedicated to Film Photography. Episode 1


Much before I moved to Vancouver Island I had a goal to set up a YouTube channel dedicated to film and a year later I have finally found the time to start. Below is my first video highlighting the Olympus mju1 and all the pictures I took on Kodak Gold 200 (shot at box speed). One of the goals of this channel is to not only shoot more film but it’s to create printed content as well. With each episode Iwill be making a hand made zine to share the images I have taken. I will also be giving a copy away to one individual each and every time I drop an episode. Stay tuned each week for the next episode.

Shooting Street with Kodak Gold 200 ~ Carsland

        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.
