Tully is departing our shores, so I wanted to blog another of our shoots before she left.

Thanks for your efforts and patience and beautiful work Tully and hopefully you come back soon.

Sometimes I feel
Like I don’t have a partner
Sometimes I feel
Like my only friend
Is the city I live in
The city of angels
Lonely as I am
Together we cry

I drive on her streets
‘Cause she’s my companion
I walk through her hills
‘Cause she knows who I am
She sees my good deeds
And she kisses me windy
I never worry
Now that is a lie

I don’t ever want to feel
Like I did that day
Take me to the place I love
Take me all the way

It’s hard to believe
That there’s nobody out there
It’s hard to believe
That I’m all alone
At least I have her love
The city she loves me
Lonely as I am
Together we cry

I don’t ever want to feel
Like I did that day
Take me to the place I love
Take me all the way

Under the bridge downtown
Is where I drew some blood
Under the bridge downtown
I could not get enough
Under the bridge downtown
Forgot about my love
Under the bridge downtown
I gave my life away

Shot on Agfa Scala 200 and Tri-X 400

Lyrics: Red Hot Chilli Peppers – “Under the Bridge” , 1991.

I make no secret I like shooting weird, non conventional films.

Kodak Vericolor Slide Film is exactly one of those films. It was never meant to be shot how I shot it and that’s the challenge.

Originally designed to make slides from negatives its a C41 processed slide film, so it is unique in that regard alone.

The single roll I had was expired in 1997 and I decided to double expose most of the shots just to amp up the “funkyness” of it.

18090013

Why do I shoot these films? Mainly because not many people are. The rarity and specific uses of them, precludes a lot of people from shooting them in this way, but I like to push things in ways they weren’t really designed for.

Thanks to my model @caitylacuna

If you have an odd or rare film you’d like to me to shoot, get in touch. I’m happy to give it a whirl…

This blog is slowly turning into a review of strange and unique films thinly disguised as photoshoots.

It wasn’t really my intention, but since these films will never be reproduced i’m happy to show my results for those interested.  I’ll try to incorporate the rolls into a photoshoot somewhere.

Usually I get several rolls of a film, but the Ektachrome Panther P1600x was different. I was given a single roll and since it was E-6 slide film, I really had no intention of ever shooting it. I had never seen it for sale before and people I spoke to about it generally had never used it.

03690004

As far as I know it was never refrigerated and expired in the late 90’s. At one stage this film spent several months on the floor of my car. Far from ideal film conditions.

03690005

Then I found a lab that did E-6 at decent prices with a great reputation so I thought I’ll have a whirl with it.

03690003

I shot it at 400 ISO, and Rewind Photo Lab in Sydney did a great job with it. I honestly expected it to not even have anywhere near the consistency it did.

03690007

I really love the “filmy”look it has and have actually made some enquiries to try and source some more.
