Playing with Film

pennysblog_playingwithfilm

This month’s Sinful Sunday prompt is vintage/retro, and right away I thought of this image that I shot a couple of years ago and have been holding on to. It’s a self portrait of me playing with an old film camera (taken with a DSLR and edited in a retro style.)

Speaking of film–I haven’t shot with film in ages, but I’ve been thinking about starting again. There’s one black and white film class in town that I know of that I’ve been wanting to take, but the timing hasn’t worked out so far–some people have also suggested teaching myself/making my own darkroom. I also have an old Polaroid that I could experiment with, but film for it is expensive.

A couple of weeks ago, I bought an underwater disposable film camera at Walgreens before a friend’s pool party, and I’ve shot a few sexy images on it…only to realize I’m going to have to send it off to get developed, and I’ve heard many places don’t even give you your negatives back anymore. So now I’m not sure what to do with those…

Do any of y’all still shoot with film? How do you develop it?

Day 28 of #FebPhotoFest

 Ah, today is the last day of FebPhotoFest! In case you missed some of the action, here’s a summary:  I posted 28 images which included 15 self portraits, 7 sex toy photos, and miscellaneous things like books and flowers that look like vulvas. All of the images were shot specifically for FebPhotoFest, with the exception of 3 throwback images (Masked, More Oral, & Lifelike.)

What’d you think? Which were your favorite images?
