I’ve decided to take the plunge and organize a photo-walk in Kleinburgh to mark the passing of Kodachrome once it can no longer be developed after Dec/2010.
I have set up a Facebook event for it, but if you are not on Facebook, the info is reproduced below. Please let me know if you would like to attend and whether or not you wish to reserve a roll of film!
Goodbye Kodachrome Retro Photo-walk LOCATION CHANGE!!!
Date/Time October 16 · 10:00am – 5:00pm
Location Morningside Park, Scarborough Ontario.
We’ll meet at 2nd last parking lot (beside a playground), shoot for a while, then how about a late lunch?
More Info What better way to mark the passing of this legendary film than to shoot it one last time, a photo-walk capturing the beautiful fall colours in Kleinburg, Ontario (home to the McMichael Gallery and its renowned collection of Group of Seven art).
As of December, 2010 the one lab that still processes Kodachrome slide film will stop this service, and the glorious era of Kodachrome will end. While Kodak no longer sells Kodachrome, it is still available on eBay.
Depending on numbers, I can provide some Kodachrome at my cost, and provide instructions on how to get it processed. I have bought 14 rolls online so far, at an average cost of $6.33. I will buy more if numbers warrant. One roll per person, and people who confirm attendance with me will get priority.
You’re responsible for providing a 35mm camera. If you want to reserve a roll, let me know ASAP either here, or via email firstname.lastname@example.org
Note: Digital photographers also welcome!
