Samantha and my Fabulous Film Fridays project that we shared between our blogs and which started on December 31, 2010 has come to its year-end. It has been a blast shooting once a week with our film cameras. If you liked this project be sure to head over to our new website and blog and get the free Fabulous Film Friday eBook which will launch next Friday (January 6, 2012). As most of you know this blog will end on December 31st with its final entry; please join me over at oopoomoo where my new adventure begins!

Speaking of end projects, Samantha is giving her course: Learning to “Speak’ the Language of Visual Expression one last time. This course has gotten rave reviews and so if you are keen to ramp up your visual knowledge, be sure to sign up for the January 2nd, 2012 start date!

Fabulous Film Fridays – May 6, 2011

This week Samantha took Tachihara Tim out for a spring outing. This lovely 4×5 field camera is a beauty to behold. Sam is learning to use the filed camera and the best way to learn the tilts, shifts, and focus is to play with instant film (Fuji Instant Color Film – FP100c45) which gives you immediate feedback – well feedback in 90 seconds or so anyway. This film is Fuji’s version of ‘Polaroid-like’ instant film). Once you get a good exposure on the Fuji Instant Film, then you pop in real film (like Fujichrome Velvia silde film) and make an image. Except someone (namely a balding person of the male persuasion) forgot a critical accessory needed to make a film image — the film holder.  D’ oh!.

Oh well… missing brain cells aside head on over to Sam’s blog to see what she got with the instant film.
