17 Inspirational Analog Photos

[tweetmeme]We’re off to a good start with these Flickr Challenges… the first one was “Street” and the winner chose a new theme of “Analog”. I’m a sucker for film photos, so this one was particularly difficult for me to select the photos below (I wanted to pick a bunch more, but I’m trying to keep these things under 20 or 30 photos).

The favorite selection this week is from Rob LaRosa with his shot titled “Everything you need”. And as the winner, he gets to pick the theme for challenge #3.

Rob has chosen the topic of “Vanishing Points” — so experiment with converging lines and leading the viewer’s eye to a distant point in the background. Here’s a video to help put things in perspective.

CHALLENGE #3: “VANISHING POINTS”

FLICKR TAG: “EE-VANISH”

And don’t forget that your photos must also be in the Epic Edits Flickr Pool. Winner of the next round picks the next topic. I’ll post my selections in about a week or two.

Here are the remaining selections from Challenge #2:

Extreme Film Photography

Two things for this quick bit of news — the first is a crazy DIY pinhole film camera that shoots 3 rolls of 35mm film at the same time. The resulting shot is a 4×5″ exposure.

There’s a bit of a back story on this one… on March 22, my pal Udi (the guy that runs DIYPhotography.net) pointed me to this cool little thing via Twitter. I replied (half joking since my birthday was on the 31st) “I hadn’t seen it until just now — crazy!!! I want one for my birthday.” Udi replies back with “that may just be arranged…” Then a few days ago he hits me with a DM that says “you should watch the blog tonight. I am about to deliver your bithday present :)”

I figured it had something to do with this camera… and I was right. Udi went out and put together an insane DIY-how-to article for building one of these things with the help of its creator: Steven Monteau. The guide they put together is incredibly detailed with all the steps needed, plus videos! Dang Udi… thanks for the present! I just might have a go at this thing!

Another newsworthy item I came across recently is a video of the Apollo 11 Launch at 500 Frames per Second (found via PetaPixel). This is incredible footage, and it was all caught on film.

So there you go — a couple of extreme film photography items worth checking out.
