This here photograph (an outtake of Ms. Grace Kelly) is from a favorite Flickr photographer, although in retrospect he may not want to be referred as that so I shall recant and just add him on my list of favorite photographers, does that work for you Mr. Palumbo?  I sure hope so.
As promised I was going to share an amazing photo processing workshop. It’s called the Photographer’s Formulary and it’s located in Montana.  I want to go so badly it hurts. If you are like me and are on a shoestring budget they do offer kits.  The only problem I have with that is that I am not known to follow directions very well and when you are working with caustic chemicals that could be a disaster waiting to happpen. Why is this so exciting?  Well because they show you how to work with antique processes that are not readily available in this here 21st century.  I know a lot of you (like myself) have a predilection for vintage and this feels like the ultimate in creating a non-phony vintage, heirloom quality memory, but what do I know?
I am assuming these posts were either– A) a bust, since it’s been crickets in the comment section or B) a total success and you all have been rushing to the links.  I still have one more day of posting but Friday I think I will give you a guide to digitally achieve film looks.  It seems to be all the rage.


  1. Oh my goodness, I typed out this long comment (on my phone none the less) and it disappeared & took me to a different comment form when I hit submit! What did I say? What did I say?

    1. Thanks a bunch for posting this series this week. I’m really loving it. I read thru Google Reader tho so that makes me exceptionally bad at leaving comments… Sorry! :-/

    I graduated with my degree in photography but I haven’t processed any film since then… Even tho I have all the equipment & a roll of B&W film from my wedding day… Which was 5 years ago! It’s just terrible. Your links are very fun tho so hopefully it’ll get me started again.

    2. I really love your blog! You never fail to inspire me! So I really want to thank you for that because lately I’ve been needing that inspiration! I’m really looking forward to the launch of your store. Best of luck with that!

  2. Thank you ladies for making me smile. PJ I too have film inferiority complex which I am hoping to cure soon;)

    Katie, gosh if you know how to work in the darkroom get one of these kits! It could be so amazing to develop that roll with an alternative process and thank you for the encouragement and taking the time to re-write your comment!

    Brandi, thank you, I do appreciate your comment and I really do hope the posts inspire at least a few people.


    Miss B.
