I took my first picture on an old 110 Kodak camera and the results were terrible, but soon I discovered 35mm film and loved it.
Then digital photography happened and it was time to move on. I still miss the anticipation that came from having to wait for a film to be developed.
This film tells the story of a 35mm camera and everything that it saw in it’s lifetime right up to the point where it was broken.
And all this on the day that Kodak Alaris announced that Kodak Professional T-MAX P3200 TMZ, 35mm film will be making a comeback.
In the UK we have a saying for people approaching tricky situations, we say:
“Your skating on thin ice”
But what’s it really like to skate on thin ice? That’s what this video demonstrates – skating on 45 mm thick ice to be precise.
This is black ice, or congelation ice which forms without any air bubbles trapped inside, making it transparent and giving it amazing acoustic properties. The audio is a must for this one.
The results are amazing:
There are times when I try to pick something for a Friday that is artistic and fabulous, other times I pick something that makes me laugh.
This video by Human Fountains made me laugh, it’s wonderfully gloriously pointlessly daft.
You need to listen with the soundtrack:
I love lakes and mountains, I’m also a big fine of time-lapse so this video of Canada is, for me, a winner.
I travelled 5500 km in six weeks exploring the vast landscapes of British Columbia and Alberta in Canada, always looking to place my camera gear in the most beautiful sceneries possible.
With 54.000 single photos shot along the way I created ALIVE – a timelapse film which takes you on a vivid journey through wild forests, along the shores of crystal lakes and up the hills of massive mountains.
Flo has also done an impressive film of Iceland called Eylanda.
Apply some tilt-shift and a bit of time-shift to drone footage of kayakers and what do you get? A seemingly miniature word of water and mad drops over waterfalls and through whitewater.
For people from the UK, the music will probably remind you of something else:
The ordinary things around us are extraordinary especially when we get in close.
This video shows the world of ordinary organic things like Kiwi, Strawberry, Blueberry ad Garlic at 1000x magnification:
It all started with a single shot – a small frozen snowflake I captured using a 100mm macro lens. I’ve shot plenty of macro photography in the past, but for some reason this image ignited my imagination and passion to shoot. So I did what any sane person would do — bought a microscope with camera capabilities and I started to shoot every day objects at 1000x+ magnifications.
It was like a whole new world for me. I ran out to the grocery store and picked up as many different and unique looking organic foods I could find so I could capture them up-close and personal…
