Photos shot on film, no digital nonsense. Anything as long as it is shot on film.
Theme suggestion kudos go to Lovesandwich–thanks!September 21, 2011 at 9:57 pm #41371
Well it seems like this is likely gonna be my first contest with no entries in a really long time. I have a film camera but I have no good shots with it as far as I know and on top of that I will have to send the film through the mail to get it developed. Not sure I will even have the one roll I have taken developed and back to me by the time this goes live.September 21, 2011 at 11:24 pm #41372
I was hoping this would be enough lead time…should I push it back?September 21, 2011 at 11:34 pm #41373
Nah. I Wouldn’t want to get it pushed back just for me. Especially if I fail to get any more pictures on film anytime soon. The camera I have might have ruined the shots I got anyway. I had to tape part of the top of the camera back together after dropping it on pavement. Won’t know till I get the film back if light leaks ruined the roll.September 21, 2011 at 11:55 pm #41374nobigdealParticipant
Light leaks are art…at least that’s what the Holga folks say! 😀September 22, 2011 at 12:18 am #41375
Yeah but the whole top of the camera came apart. It might be 100% light leak with no usable images. lol. It seems like an even cheaper camera than the Holgas. I don’t know though because I have never dealt with HolgaSeptember 22, 2011 at 12:23 am #41376Pope_Larry_IIParticipant
Unfortunately my ‘new’ Pentax K1000 is dead, and I cannot afford to fix it right at the moment, this contest will be an an archive dive. Lucky for me I have trips to Paris, Amsterdam and Chicago to choose from.September 22, 2011 at 12:41 am #41377Plamadude30kParticipant
This is finally a reason to get that waterproof film camera I’ve been looking at. Kind of wish I’d brought my SRT-101 to the island, though. It was actually pretty darn good.September 22, 2011 at 11:46 am #41378

If there’s a consensus about moving it back, it’s not that big a deal. We have done that before and will likely do it again at some point.October 14, 2011 at 11:49 pm #41380powerfulkatrinkaParticipant
Are scanned from film images OK?October 15, 2011 at 2:19 am #41381KestranaParticipant
Yes, you can scan from film for any contest.November 4, 2011 at 10:54 am #41383ravnosticParticipant
If I decide to do this contest (I’d have to dig through my old-school shots or buy some film and ‘settle’ for pharma-processing at this point), then I’ll need an OBO. Daylight Savings ends and for the next couple weeks I’ll be starting my shifts a little earlier.
//yeah, I’ll probably do it. I’m a sucker for these contests.November 4, 2011 at 2:13 pm #41382KestranaParticipant
There’s nothing wrong with Walgreens processing, we take our stuff there when we can (when it’s 35mm).November 4, 2011 at 3:32 pm #41379ravnosticParticipant
Kestrana, assuming I were to do so, and opted for the cd version, hows the resolution? At CVS it was something like 720×480; horrible!
Or, I could open up the old steamer trunk and unpack the scanner I packed away after ‘scanner as camera’…November 4, 2011 at 4:16 pm #41369sleepingParticipant
Yeah, C41 is pretty much C41 as long as the equipment is kept clean. Also, at least at CVS, you can ask for processing + a CD of scans but no prints, it’s a lot cheaper without them.
