Pentax MX, Centon 50/1.7, either Fuji 200 or Walgreen's 200 (same thing, I think)

Before I left Flickr I used to belong to a group which had a day a month when you had to shoot an entire roll. Didn't matter with what. Once it was developed you created an album with all the images, and then posted a couple of your favourites to a thread. Perhaps we could start something like that here? A sort of film version of the "Single in... " or "Daily image..." challenges which tend to suit digital more than film. What do folks think?
Good idea, though getting everyone sync'ed up considering time for processing/scanning might be a pain. I belong to the Commie Camera group on Flickr and May Day photos trickle in for months afterward and sometimes overlap the Red October challenge.

I'm up for it, depending on how often you would like to do it. I'm only shooting b/w film right now, but lately have become interested in trying a C-41 process, and now I can actually get the chemicals thanks to my recent discovery of filmphotographyproject.com.

Some shots from earlier this March in Antarctica & South Shetland Islands, shooting Adox Silvermax and Fuji Provia 100F:
All these Provia images look great! The images look like from a pre-digital era magazine. The colors are very natural, without any cross-type/sepia effect that we usually see today in images from modern film enthusiasts. I suppose that the majority of such images 20 years ago would have been regarded as having poor colors. Today, unfortunately, they are usually regarded as being normal.

Interesting composition of continuity and discontinuity, I really like the square format in triptych. The layers are great, and the grass texture and clouds make some magic! Great sky and undulating horizon, too. The greens are luscious.

The last one is interesting in that there is a lot to contemplate. (If you were looking for warmer climes, you went too far south.)

They are lovely and "accurate", as it were. FIlm was always more than capable of that. Today's magazine photos are far more contrasty and hyper-realistic as so much mainstream digital photography has become. I'd attribute the popularity of "flawed" or "filmic" look in film photography (the Lomo sort of approach) simply to a backlash against that sort of aesthetic, and even in the popularity of Lightroom filters and mobile device camera apps that add faux "imperfection" to the overly sterile digital photos captured on a sensor.
But yeah - those look great. I love Provia, one of my favorites, for that reason.

I'm always very impressed by your triptychs. You manage to get them to line up etc. perfectly. Lovely image too. K.

At the end of the day, we are talking about digitized captures viewed on digital displays...
