2017 Film Challenge – Top 12 PHOTOS

While Sean and I have been keeping up with the FILM CHALLENGE, I have been neglecting to blog about it (or anything else for that matter). Oops.

All the photos can be found on here, but for a quick rundown, here are my favorite film photos for each month of 2017:

JANUARY

cocosneakers

35mm Canon AE-1 • Kodak UltraMax 400 • Monterey, CA

I am still swooning over this double exposure of Sneakers and Coco. NEED to get this one printed and framed someday when we have a bigger living space.

FEBRUARY

7434062_7434062-r1-057-27

35mm Canon AE-1 • Vista Plus 200 • Hollywood, CA

The OG Tower of Terror. I dig all the greenery and little shrub shadows. Also, what font is that???

MARCH

20480014

35mm Canon AE-1 • Kodak Portra 100 • Woodland Hills, CA

By far the creepiest photo taken last year. The smiling bear in the front is cute though.

APRIL

30770033

35mm Canon AE-1 • Rollei RPX 400 (Push +2 to 1600) • Sherman Oaks, CA

April was a B&W film month and no one looks better in grayscale than little miss coco.

MAY

38900029

35mm Canon AE-1 • Lomography 400 • Alabama Hills, CA

It is impossible to take a bad photo in the Alabama Hills. Beauty in every direction.

JUNE

35mm Canon AE-1 • Fuji X-TRA Superia 800 • I-5, CA

Lost track of how many hours we spent driving up and down the I-5 in 2017. The clouds in this one are clutch.

JULY

53100012

35mm Canon Sure Shot Compact • ILFORD 400 B&W • Ventura, CA

This was our first month using the Canon Sure Shot. I love the grain and the vignetting in this photo. Has a very old look to it. HIPSTAMATIC SHIT.

AUGUST

35mm Canon Sure Shot Compact • Kodak Gold 400 • Hoh Rain Forest, WA

35mm Canon Sure Shot Compact • Kodak Gold 400 • Hoh Rain Forest, WA

Another one with the Canon Sure Shot but this time with color film. That little camera sure adds character. Oh, and nice hat, Sean 😉

SEPTEMBER

72670016

35mm Canon AE-1 • CineStill 50 • Whittier, CA

Those clouds…and that silhouette of the city…*gasp*. CineStill film is simply cinemagic!

OCTOBER

82310026

35mm Nikon FE2 • CineStill 50 • Studio City, CA

The Nikon FE2 was added to our camera collection and produced this vintage Sneaks classic. Oh, and about those cowboy curtains?!?

NOVEMBER

98370019

35mm Olympus XA2 • AGFA Vista 400 • Las Vegas, Nevada

Another new camera – the Olympus XA2. Brought the cute compact camera with us to Las Vegas and got some pretty neat nightlife shots.

DECEMBER

DecInstax 3

Fuji Instax Mini • Fujifilm Instax Mini Instant • Los Angeles, CA

Sean bought me the Fuji Instax Mini 90 for my birthday and I take it with me everywhere I go. This is one of my favorite double exposures that I have gotten with it so far.

CAN’T STOP, WON’T STOP.

We are now completely obsessed with our film cameras and don’t plan on giving them up anytime soon. Sean even purchased a B&W developing kit so expect a lot of monochrome this year. January 2018 photos are up now and February photos are coming soon.

 

 

July and August – Film Challenge

Have you checked our FILM CHALLENGE lately? Photos for July and August are up but I haven’t had a chance to blog about them until now.

JULY

This was a pretty uneventful month for us, so when Sean got a new camera – the Canon Sure Shot Compact – we took a weekend trip to Ventura, popped in some B&W film and put it to the test. Here are my two favorites:

AUGUST

We took so many photos in August it was hard to choose the best ones to post. We used three different cameras and went through a variety of film while exploring the beautiful state of Washington. Here are just a few:

35mm Canon Sure Shot Compact • Kodak Gold 400 • Aberdeen, WA

35mm Canon AE-1• Kodak Portra 160 • Seattle, WA

A few more shots from the Alabama Hills and an impromptu photo shoot with my cousin, Aaron.

35mm Canon AE-1 • Kodak Portra 400 • Alabama Hills, CA

35mm Canon AE-1 • Fuji X-TRA Superia 800 • Venice, CA

Processing all of this film is getting a bit expensive. Sean and I have been looking to purchase a film scanner but can’t seem to find one under $300 with good reviews. Any suggestions?!?

MAY – FILM CHALLENGE

May Photos for our FILM CHALLENGE are now posted. This month we went camping in the Alabama Hills and brought along our Canon AE-1 and Mamiya RB67 Pro S, shooting with both 35mm and 120mm film. I’ll be posting a blog about our trip soon! In the meantime, here are our favorite film photos:
