Where Can I Buy Film?

ONLINE
I buy all my film-related things at B+H Photo. It’s in NYC so shipping can be an issue, but it’s free over $99 USD.  They have a huge selection new and used equipment.

HILLMAN PHOTOGRAPHY INITIATIVE
Maybe you’re thinking about the life cycle of images? Hillman Photography Initiative.

The Hillman Photography Initiative at Carnegie Museum of Art (CMOA) investigates the lifecycle of images: their creation, transmission, consumption, storage, potential loss, and reemergence. Technology accelerates the pace of this cycle, and often alters or redirects the trajectory of an image in unexpected, powerful ways.

The Hillman Photography Initiative is an incubator for innovative thinking on the photographic image. The Initiative centers around four projects that, taken together, investigate the boundaries and possibilities of photography through the way that an image travels. Conceived through an open, discursive process, unique in a museum setting, these projects include live public events at the museum, a pop-up reading room in the galleries, two collaborative web-based projects, and a series of commissions, including documentary videos, art projects, and writing. This website is designed to foster public conversations around the larger story that these four projects tell, and knit them together in a single experience.

**

The Hillman Photography Initiative has so many cool projects: Orphaned Images, The Invisible Photography, I’m especially excited for the upcoming issue about Physics and photographic processes! (nerd), and This Picture, which asks people to stop, look and respond to one image at a time. One image at a time—how we should all be looking. Looking, not swiping through SnapChat and Instagram.

 

TECHNIQUES and TOOLS
Before drones (and projects like Dronestagram) were used for photographic surveillance, people relied on balloons, kites and pigeons.  The camera in the above image was large enough to shoot large format film and required 9-17 kites to lift it.

Selfies with the universe?

cosmic-ray-particle-showers

Instead of a taking a selfie, use your phone to solve the mysteries of the universe.

Turn your phone into a particle ray detector! Two physicists who work at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland are creating an app that transforms smart phones into particle ray detectors.

Read about their project.

Join the project!

Brilliant or just plain sad? You decide.

Look photographers, the rest of the world is finally catching up to those of us who pay attention to what we see. app-2-e812ea2b4eaa565803e89b08ba3d895b
The WhiteAlbum is an app that lets you utilize your smartphone camera as if it were a analog camera.

It works like this: shoot 24 images without seeing or being able to edit the final product (just like shooting on film) and then, about a week later you’ll receive a white album of your printed photos.

The website says: Get a good look at what you’re shooting, because you won’t see it again until the prints are in your hands

Is the App a great idea, encouraging a resurgence in printed images and slower looking or is it just a pale facsimile of shooting with an analog camera? Tell me what you think.
