Film Photography

I’m not sure if other people have seen things like this on Ecn-2 based films, but I can’t figure out exactly what it is. On some shots, especially those with a lower exposure, I seem to get these areas of magenta bands or contamination near the top and bottom of a frame. I don’t think it’s a light leak from the camera, as I’ve seen the same thing from 3 of my 35mm cameras. Could it be from static unrolling the bulk reel to spool down for the bulk loader or perhaps a very minor leak from the bulk loader?

Instagram

Looks like Intagram’s roll-out of their non-chronological feed has finally started hitting more people in the US. My own account seems to have changed over yesterday. I honestly don’t know what they’re thinking by having that as the default with no way to switch to a most recent first view. To me one of the main draws to Instagram was to catch up on what the people I follow do in a linear fashion.

However, I know my own posts are non-chronological compared to when I actually shot them, but I do try to publish in groups of related photos. Hopefully enough people will speak out about it again so that we at least have the option to view chronologically, otherwise I guess myself and others will use the platform less. If people want to use an algorhythmically driven platform they could just go to Facebook.

This also once again reiterates a point content creators should always be aware of. Don’t become completely reliant on one platform if you don’t have total control over it. Otherwise even a small change later could lead to the complete irrelevance of the platform, no matter how much work you’ve put into bringing your content there.

2016

A new year and possibly more posts, but also there is a fairly good chance my post frequency won’t increase. One of my goals is to write more and cover ideas as well as share some of my processes though. So between working on projects and learning new things maybe I’ll find the time to write before I get distracted by other things.

I would actually like to work with more people this year on pieces that could be portfolio pieces for everyone on the team. Especially on pieces that could incorporate fashion, visual effects, and large format photography. Actually if any concept would be beneficial to the team involved I’d be interested in working on the project. I’m only going to continue charging for projects that are for commercial use.
