I’m so glad there’s a new photography networking group in Atlanta. I had been co-leading my own group for about a year but we could never quite get over 5-7 people to show up to our monthly meetings. We decided we worked best as an online forum with occasional, spur-of-the-moment gatherings and left it at that. But then my good photog pals Steven and Noi teamed up to start offering film-related photography meetings. The “Atlanta Film Photographers” was the perfect answer to my digital burnout.
Our first meeting was a good ole fashioned shootout. Just a couple of models — one of them my bestie Maxi! — and a bunch of photographers. It was an amazing learning environment. No pressure and plenty of people to answer any questions that might pop up. You might even recognize some of the locations in downtown Atlanta (The Walking Dead anyone?!). I did a much better job of keeping track of which film stock and cameras I used. This was before my big Mamiya purchase, so the medium format shots you see are with Noi’s 645AF. I started the session by finishing up a roll of Portra 160 on my 35mm (even played with my prism for a few shots), moved to Noi’s Mamiya (with Portra 400 which I LOVE), and then finished up with my 35mm loaded with Fuji 400h. It was fun seeing the results from the different film stocks and cameras. And I actually think I still have some shots on my 35mm left from this session…I might need to do an “end of the roll” session soon so I can get those developed! I’ll add them here with a special note when I do!
Okay, off to the good stuff: PHOTOS!
