almost next year, i want to take a picture

so i've got some ideas that revolve around the fact that i haven't done as much photography this year as i had intended to do. i love doing the photo developing at home, but it is quite time consuming and has certain temperature requirements (my makeshift film developing room is too cold right now).

so i'm gonna put out a call to everyone who has leftover rolls of film. at one point before the whole digital photography thing took over, people used to take pictures with real film in film-requiring cameras. some people are bound to still have some of this film sitting around in a box or a drawer somewhere - so this is directed to you.

if you have film sitting around at home that you've been meaning to use, but haven't bothered because you've got a digital camera and/or the cost of getting the film processed is less than awesome to you, let me know because i'd love to get my hands on it. the older, the better. i want to do some experimentation and sometimes the crappy old film gets the best results.

i prefer that the film be older than 6 months old (unless you really just want to get rid of it) - i'm kind of looking for stuff that's aged a bit.

if you're in the GTA, i may be able to come get it from you. if you're not in the Toronto area, drop me a line and maybe i'll work out some shipping details. hopefully i'll get a few responses, and i'll post the results of the old-film photography here.

keep in mind too that if you have friends or relatives that don't read this, you can pass the info along to them as well, just drop a comment here with how i can contact you for the film.

happy new year 'n shit eh!

    This is a good idea. I have that Fisheye camera I have been meaning to use. I have film for it. Maybe you can develop those for me, once I take some pictures.
