Slides as they are called in the consumer world of photography. Dead as they have been sentenced by the prosumer imaging world.
Resolution, sharpness, information, quality transparencies have it all so why is Kodachrome being discontinued? Because it is guilty of lasting, guilty of quality, guilty of non convenience and mostly guilty of inspiring thought as the photographer exposes this film. No machine gun shoot 100 images and spend 3 hours in post production to find the idea you didn’t have. The creation is made by the artist, not the program. It is great not goodnuff, and goodnuff rules. This image made on Provia a very good Fuji Transparency film. I’m saving the final 20 rolls of Kodachrome for a final project to be shot over the next few months before the only lab to process Kodachrome closes. Want to be a subject for the final series?
