Film Photo Friday No. 3: Sunhouse
Sunhouse bassist (and my son) Lucas thumpin' the Thunderbroom at Slum Nation in Port Huron.
Slum Nation was a recent and very needed local DIY venue space in Downtown Port Huron for original bands to play. It has already been kiboshed due to ordinances and squares.
Shot on a Holga 120N with an AmozonBasics Electronic Flash using Kodak TMax 400 120 film.
I caught the picture taking bug as a young child in the mid 70s when my grandmother handed me a Kodak 126 Instamatic. In high school and college in the mid to late 1980s, I learned a lot about the art of photography and how everything works when it comes to using film. When digital photography gear became somewhat affordable in the early 00s, I made the leap. Eventually, it caused me to forget a lot that I learned. It also made me less discerning of what to shoot and when.
A couple years ago, I started using film again. Cameras that are fully manual and antiquated I like using to get my skills back to where they were and are a blast to use. "Toy cameras" with plastic lenses are fun as well. And I also cannot forget to mention the slew of cheap former Soviet Union shooters in have in my collection. It has taken me back to observing and composing instead of just willy nilly shooting randomly at whatever.
I hope you enjoy the photos I will be sharing as much I do taking them.
If you'd like to help me out in the costs involved (cuz film and development does cost a bit and my extra cash to spend on such is limited after my real life bills are paid), you can "buy me a cup of coffee" at my Ko-Fi page.
