Scanning Kodachrome (or, I guess I should say, color correcting Kodachrome scans) is a REAL pain in the butt. So much so that I have basically given up on it. Then again, I believe that Kodachrome is best appreciated in the way that it was originally meant to be - as a slide viewed on a light table or with a slide projector.

I gave up a slide projector years ago. I'm too lazy. But I still enjoy a light table, in the quiet of the evening, sometimes with a beverage and music.

And I still shoot slides for prints. The local CVS has been running 8x10s or 8x12s at $1.99 USD. It's funny, 20 years ago, I used to wait for the twice a year Kodak specials at these prices.

Because of digital, as in scans and photo editing, filing is more time consuming. I never used to track the intermediate versions between the slide and print. Now I do. Mainly for three image sizes with 3/4 inch borders, px x px and resolution, plus the original scan. It's more work. But I guess, it's part of the digital workflow. My print sizes include 8x11-1/2. Plus there are the versions I sometimes prepare for email or simple computer monitor display or CD based web pages. Digital and bookkeeping, can't have one without the other.

It's simpler to just give 'em a print, and be done with it. I do that too.

No idea - those were scans off of prints and not the original negatives. Ah well, cant have everything!

Sorry I havent been posting - life has been very busy the last few weeks! Since I wont flood you guys, here's a quick sampling of the awesomeness:


Day 292/365 - Pumpkin in the Leaves by Great Beyond, on Flickr



Day 267/365 - You're so busted by Great Beyond, on Flickr


Day 251/365 - Walking across the Golden Gate by Great Beyond, on Flickr

Sadly I'm down to my last 24 or so shots on my very last roll. It was a brief run, but an awesome one.

While I'm twiddling my thumbs, waiting for my rolls back from Dwaynes, it's time to post a couple more shots!

This one comes from my roadtrip from LA to Seattle, in Newport Oregon:

Day 254/365 - Newport Bridge at dawn by Great Beyond, on Flickr

While not artistically strong, this one is cool because everyone needs to give it up for their mother!

This one just made me chuckle:

Disagree about the superhero photo, I'd say its very artistically strong! Great pic (great pictures in fact!).

I guess it it - I downplayed it because it was kind of schmaltzy - but yeah, it is cool

Anyway, here's a couple of more while I sit and twiddle my thumbs waiting for my stuff to get back from Dwaynes:

Here one from the Seattle Sounders victory in the US Cup:

Or this - down at the docks in the middle of the night in pouring down rain:

And this last one from the Puyallup Fair:

For what it's worth, I was coincidentally out there at Kerry Park with Kodachrome in tow at almost the same time:

A "show of force": get the "Forever Kodachrome: 1935–2010" camera bag button-pin
"What was lost in Kodachrome was less about an object — film — and more about what one could create with that medium. Like taking oil from Monet."

Awesome looking photo - I've been (or at least was) trying to shoot the moon for a while and always came out disappointed. But that one - that one's wicked!

And here's my very last frame of Kodachrome that I'll ever shoot:


Day 363/365 - Momma takes the Kodachrome away by Great Beyond, on Flickr

It's been a hell of a run. I've gotten some amazing pictures in the last six months, and I've learned a lot about film. Not everything I snapped was a winner, but I like to think that I did the ol' girl proud from time to time. My only regret is that I didn't get back into shooting film sooner - but you enjoy what you did get, not lament what you didn't have.
