Film Is Not Dead

Remember this post? Well, the long wait is over…that ancient roll of Ektachrome IE color infrared film has been processed and the scans are here. I’ve been told that the film was in pretty poor shape (as expected); the negatives are nearly transparent to the naked eye and there were issues with the hardening of the emulsion. As a result, the color component of the film did not survive the processing. However, I’m quite pleased with the B&W scans that the folks at Film Rescue International were able to salvage from this roll. I’ll be posting more frames in the days ahead.

After 15 years of shooting digital images, I’m really enjoying getting back into film, where I started in 1976. I’ll be using film much more frequently on future road trips.
