The Last Day of Kodachrome
Blog by Michael Raso
How fitting that my favorite magazine news program devote a segement to the last days of Kodak Kodachrome - the world's finest film.
As a photographer shooting film, I tend to "overstock," so, earlier this year I started sharing my rolls of Kodachrome with folks who listen to The Film Photography Podcast (the internet radio show which I host).
The images shot by the podcast audience are on display in the "KODACHROME - Film Photography Project 2010" on Flickr.com
Good-bye Kodachrome. You will be missed.
Launched in October of 2009, the Film Photography Podcast is a 90 minute, bi-weekly Internet radio program, exploring a wide range of topics relevant to the experienced and aspiring photographer using film as a medium. Hosts Michael Raso and Duane Polcou enthusiastically dissect and debate the pros-and-cons of film formats, do-it-yourself techniques, digital technologies, and vintage and contemporary cameras and accessories in a thorough, informative and casual manner. Regular features include Camera tests and reviews, “book of the month”, interviews, a listener-generated Q&A, and film-related giveaways.
Produced in the United States, the Film Photography Podcast is broadcast around the globe via iTunes and direct stream from http://www.filmphotographypodcast.com
