2010 - The Last Year Shooting Kodak Kodachrome

Images from one of my last shoots (June 2010) using Kodak Kodachrome color reversal film. "Kodachrome is a type of color reversal film introduced by Eastman Kodak in 1935. It was one of the first successful color materials and was used for both cinematography and still photography. Because of the widespread transition to digital photography, Kodachrome lost its market share and its manufacturing was discontinued in 2009 and its processing ended in 2010."
