This point and shoot might look like a toy, but don’t let it’s looks fool you.Read More
Recently I was introduced to a fun application that gives you a dose of faux-film-nostalgia. Huji Film is an app that attempts to replicate the point and shoot experience. Film grain, unpredictable light flairs and other imperfections are added to your phone photos to give you that 35mm film feel. Not only that but the interface actually looks like the backside of a point and shoot disposable. You actually have to look through the tiny little view finder in the upper left corner to see your picture. It also doesn't show you your photos right after you shoot. You have to click on the "lab" button to "develop" your pictures. This app has fun little details to give you a taste of shooting film, except on your iPhone. It won't replace any of my film cameras or anything like that, but it was a fun app to mess around with anyways. Here are a few images made using the Huji Film app.
I was recently going through a shelf of my old 35mm cameras and I found some canisters of undeveloped film. One black and white and one colour. What a pleasant surprise! I decided to bring them in to get developed. They certainly aren't the greatest pictures, but something about having them stored away for a year makes them feel a bit more special.
These are the images that were locked away. I believe they are photos from between January-April 2017. Shot on a Pentax ME Super with some 1 dollar garage sale mystery film. I'll share the colour photos today and the black and whites tomorrow.
I'm ready for some travels, like big time! It's been almost a year since my last big trip abroad. I've got an itch that can only be scratched with my passport and bags packed! I've got a few ideas on places to go, but nothing set in stone yet. It's hard to choose when there are so many places to choose from...
While going through the photo archives reminiscing on past travel experiences I found a file with my first roll of 35mm film on it. Shots from my trip to Turkey, my first big trip abroad. From the archways of the Grand Bazaar to the fairy chimneys of Cappadocia, this is one of the greatest experiences of my life time. I want to relive moments like these. I want to submerse myself in different cultures. I need to travel. I need to experience the world around me to the fullest extents.
I sense some travels in the near future. Until then, here is the roll I've been reminiscing on. Shot on my Pentax ME Super.
