Kodachrome 2010 – A Documentary

Filmmaker Xander Robin commemorated the Kodachrome’s 75th and final year with this mini documentary about the film and the last shop that could develop it. For those of you who didn’t know, Kodachrome was the first commercial color film on the market beginning in 1936 and ending production in 2009. The last Kodachrome development lab, Dwayne’s Photo, in Kansas stopped processing the film in 2010 due to the shortage of chemicals available.

Ansel Adams Documentary

Ansel Adams Documentary

Ansel is a legend, and I realized after watching this documentary that I didn’t really know as much about him as I thought. PBS has done a great job and made this a part of their history series called The American Experience.

What do you get when you combine images shot by astronomy photographer of the year, Tom Lowe on the Red Epic and Canon still cameras? You get Timescapes a documentary film capturing time-lapse photography throughout the American southwest. While the full movie still wont be out until May of 2012, it is available for pre-order now.

Always Carry Your Camera<br />(Reason 436)

You never know what you’ll run into and maybe you’ll be one of the few to catch something extraordinary on film. Friends Liberty Smith and Sophie Windsor Clive had such a moment while canoeing the River Shannon and found themselves surrounded by one of nature’s most beautiful phenomenons; a murmuration of starlings.

A Year in New York

Here’s a cool and moving glimpse into photographer Andrew Clancy’s time in New York, mostly shot on his 7D or S95. The song is great too, ‘We Don’t Eat” by his fellow Irishman James Vincent McMorrow.
