My City From the safety of Suburbia

Expired Film: Kodak Ektachrome 64T pt.2
Copyright Justin Tan-Torres
Suburbia arised as to get away from the busy, dirty and smelly cities of the past. As with most changes, it is now a problem known as suburban sprawl. Currently high – medium density developments is being pushed by planners as to stop the “spread”, destruction of land and increase community engagement in our society. Would you give up your white picket fence for a small apartment?

Hey all. I had been posting quite a bombardment of images of my film progress lately due to excitement. I realised this pace is akin to burst shooting and decided to just take it down a notch. I shall try to filter things slowly here otherwise I’d run out of images to share lol..  It seems silly to rush posting images, as it almost defeats the purpose of shooting film. I find it’s making me shoot faster as I would just want to get it develop and scanned ASAP.

I dream of a holiday

I have been a little spoiled getting 5 rolls developed in less than a month. This not very economical especially when one does not process nor scan his fim yet. I’ll try to write more stuff on my experiences while shooting rather than just the scans as I feel the process of searching for the “shot” is overlooked  (That moment you felt there was a potential in the scene you were looking at and had this itch to capture). I find this has the tendency of reducing images into mere adjectives especially on image sharing sites. I am glad to have discovered that in my short time blogging about my film foray, a dialogue exists between bloggers/photographers. The overwhelming positive response/ support and discussions I have had so far had been terrific. There is a wealth of knowledge out there and you all have been very kind to share 🙂 Thank you!

Did I mention film was awesome? lol
