Big fan of your work.Where do you get your film developed and where should I stay away from when looking for a place to get my film developed. Ive tried Walgreens but am not satisfied with the quality. Could it also be the actual film?Camera?
It’s probably not the camera if there’s no obvious light leaks, and unless the film is really old and expired, it’s probably not the film if they look like they’re anywhere within a stop of a “correct” exposure. It’s probably Walgreens, as the processing can make a huge difference. I would look into a legitimate lab. Somewhere like Photoworks SF, or Richard’s Photo Lab are good places to start as far as setting a benchmark for quality.
Inspiration is meant to be fleeting. It’s in this broken recollection of content that we formulate work that becomes intrinsically ours.
Hey, what film you usually use? For 35mm and 120mm.
My film of choice in both formats is Kodak Portra 400. I usually shoot at 400, though in certain conditions I’ll push to 800 or 1600.
why do we exist?
Hey Taylor, love your work. Just wondering how you meter/rate your film. I've been shooting for a while, but my shadows and colours seem quite muddy. Any suggestions?
Most of the time, I use an incident light meter to get dialed into exactly where I want the exposure. However, I don’t always shoot what the meter tells me. I always rate my film at the actual speed of the film, then make a decision depending on the shot on whether or not I want to under, over, or perfectly expose. At the end for me, it’s all about the feeling I want out of the photo and making a decision on exposure from there.
What's a bae?
No one knows.
Hey it's the moving anon again. Thanks so much for answering my question! I just had another one that I should've also asked you the first time around. How do you get around in the city? Do you have a car or use public transportation? I'm coming from a tiny tiny town and there's no way I really want to drive in a big city nor can I really afford to have a car. How is the public transportation there? Any tips?
I don’t have a car and am totally fine getting around with public transportation. SF is a really small city, and you’re never too far from anywhere.
Hey! I live in nyc! I just started college and went to an arts highschool and am a huge fan of your art! I would love to meet up and shoot with you but im not really well versed in photography so idk I hope you have a great rest of your stay!!! And just wanted to tell you how much I love your work!
Ah thanks! Well, maybe I’ll see you on the street!
