Happy Hump Day everyone, its a rainy day in Sacramento and my day off work, what better way to spend time today than in pjs browsing some of my favorite photography websites, right? Here are a few I love and follow consistently.
Film Grain is my newest addiction. This 15 year old Londoner has an eye for the exact mood of photography I love and his tumblr is like a feed for my feelings I swear. I really don’t know how he has the patience to find all these great shots but I’ve loved almost every single thing hes reblogged.
I Still Shoot Film was my last newest addiction. An American living and working in Paris as a photographer, she almost always posts cross-processed stuff and is an apparent fan of light leaks, I throughout enjoy the risks she takes in her personal work, it inspires me to experiment. I discovered the above tumblr through her Submission Wednesday posts which are now going to be themed! (yay!)
Vivian Maier is a collection of photos that have been reprinted by John Maloof. Vivian was an unknown street photographer from the 50s to 90s and captured some very candid and interesting moments with her twin-lens-reflex camera. Its hard not to get lost in some of her shots and to picture yourself in her shoes. I forgot to mention there is now an official site for her work at VivianMaier.com
The Impossible Project is something I recently stumbled upon while searching for people who still create Polaroid film. I was very sad to learn after purchasing a vintage SX-70 camera that Polaroid was discontinuing their instant film and the prices on ebay for packs were ridiculous at the time, I basically was stuck with a really cool looking paperweight. Lucky for me Impossible started reproducing instant film for these cameras and they have color and monotone options too! I’ve been experimenting with getting my exposures on this camera just right and will hopefully have some fun SX-70 stuff to post soon. The great thing about the Impossible Project is they offer a gallery full of inspiration and tips and tricks on how to maximize the artistic effects of their film, they have entire pages dedicated to helping you experiment. Love it.
Anyway I hope these can help you pass the time on this wednesday afternoon. <3
If there are any websites you think I should be following, please feel free to contact me and let me know! I love finding new stuff to spend my time on!
