…is basically what I’ve been doing all year. I’m not sure I even remember how old some of those posts are, almost two years by now. I didn’t even get all my film developed until Spring of this year. Current events and happenings? Go find a different blog for that. The good news is that I’ve had such a backlog that I could post about once a week and I still have just a few posts left before I finally get to what I’ve been doing this year. Compare that to last year where I posted little more than about once a month, and I think I’m doing better.
I think this blog is important to me mostly because it keeps me creating, laying down track, knowing that if I don’t I’m likely to lose what audience I have. After already completing my Minor in Fine Arts, emphasis on Photography, I decided last semester to retake Advanced Photo. This semester I have been taking an independent study shooting 4×5 large format film. So it’s been more Cowboys & Jeeps, this time with an emphasis on portraits. I shot nearly 30 rolls of 35mm Tri-X over the summer which I will be getting to as well. It just keeps piling up and I might be cleaning house all next year too.
And some good film news has happened recently that I’ve not commented on yet:
–Kodak should have Ektachrome out in medium format in just a few months (OK, that’s not new news at all but surely they’re close to being done with beta testing)
–Fuji announces that Neopan 100 Across II will be available by the end of November (in Japan, though I’m sure there will be some enterprising ebayers out there to sell it to us before the US release date in 2020).
–Ferrania has been studious all Summer and is about to be in continuous production of P30, hopefully with more emulsions to follow soon. They’re starting to roll out to stores in Italy. (taken from Facebook)
