2016 was a big year for film. I feel like it finally came back for real. I saw more young people shooting film and I saw more people expressing interest in film. I even donated a few point and shoots to friends in need of the aesthetic. 2016 was also the year I jumped into shooting more with my Hasselblad 500cm. Big deal, right? I've been using it a lot to work on some projects I'm not going to divulge quite yet, but there's some things in the works and I'm excited about them. I somehow broke every point-and-shoot I have touched recently, but the good folks at Southeastern Camera in Wilmington are always down to help me out and their East Coast Film Lab does a great job getting stuff developed and scanned. Got a few things developed and scanned at Ball Photo in Asheville too. I guess 2017 will be the year of name dropping and shout outs. So yeah, film is not dead. Not at all. Enjoy these photos. Or don't. You have that option.
point and shoot
I shoot film.
I've got a few new series coming up as well as ideas for new things so be on the lookout. Or don't. You have the choice.
Here's a few point and shoot film photographs from bike rides and scum pond fishing and driving through the area I live in. I have lots of film so there should be lots more stuff like this coming. It is also a new series listed in the "Projects" section of this here site.
This was my last full day in California before driving back to NC so we had to go to the San Diego Zoo.
This is my bro Branson. Nice guy.
I need to push through all of these to post some newer stuff, so here is a lovely picture of my only light source at my temporary home in Carlsbad, CA.
Another point and shoot gem. Somewhere near Tehachapi, CA.
Raccoons hanging out at Woodward, Tehachapi, CA.
I've given up on trying to put general ideas of dates to these pictures. This one is in Oceanside, CA on the search for some skateboard worthy concrete.
I have no idea when or where this was taken. Somewhere in California, summer 2012. Canon point-and-shoot.
