    Show your Kodachrome!!

    "... they give us those nice bright colors ,"
    it's so sad they took our Kodachrome away.

    with apologies to Paul Simon.

    Show us some Kodachrome. Old, new, family pics, serious work, you be the judge. I have got tons of these from the family archives.

    These first ones to get started are 40 years old !! Two slides and a larger image of one. Click on the slide with Geodesic - Fuller dome construction for a straight from the scanner sample. The other image is just not worth blowing up.

    Montreal Canada World's Fair and street image from the Paul R. Flowers archive(Grandpa). Shot in early 1969.

    Some from me to follow in a later post including some of the first Kodachrome I ever took!

    Wastwater 1976

    Wastwater in the Lake District (England). The sun peeks out under the clouds at the end of another rainy day and illuminates the screes. Done with a tripod on Kodachrome 25.

    I liked the colours of Kodachrome 25 - but I switched over to Velvia when it became available. But I hated the film speed (25 ISO). Standard exposure in daylight was 1/125s f5.6. I had one body loaded with Kodachrome for landscapes and one body loaded with 400 ISO black-and-white (HP5) to tell the story of the trip and finally it was quite a good solution.

    Charles,

    That's a gorgeous scene! I like the way the light and shadows fall from what appears to be approaching weather!

    Here are a couple more, same period, same area. The walking-in-the-rain one was done on "fast" Kodachrome K64, which I never really took to.

    My First Kodachrome!

    Certainly almost the first. This is a sample from one of the first rolls of Kodachrome I got to shoot on my own of what I wanted to photograph.



    This is a recent scan and you can read more of the 'back story' to this and some other earlier Kodachrome images in the Expensive Debris blog entry - I found 'em!

    Nice shot Loupey!

    I do not really miss Kodachrome by any means. I can fairly reliably re-create it with filters or certain camera techniques if desired. It was an era certainly that is now all but gone. I am pleased that some people are taking one last 'shot' at it and are sharing their work from 'before'!

    While scanning a few samples anew for this post I kept reminding myself of 'little' things that made it work better. Thus a couple of my scans are just that, raw untouched (except posting preparation) scans dirt and all! The dirt or preventing it, the 'fixing' certain items in a scan and the time consumption alone I don't miss.

    I hope we get a few more images from the last of the K-chrome users before the stock and chemicals are all finally exhausted.

    A quick scan from a roll I just got back from the lab today. Taken the first week of October in Grand Teton National Park. More to come when I get some time.

    Mike,

    I missed this woodland scene the last time I looked and I really like this one.

    The leaves in your latest post and the lake shore are also great examples of this modern version of the old classic!

    Post as many as you want as one of these days, this stuff won't be around anymore!

    Re: Show your Kodachrome!!

    So I picked up another two rolls of a ebay seller, that had been stored in a freezer. I got my first roll back yesterday. Much better results.

    The End Draws Near

    Less than 5 months to get your film processed! Then its gone . . .

    There are several articles elsewhere about Steve McCurry and his shooting the last official role of Kodachrome. A documentary is in the works as well.

    As mentioned before, old or newer forumlations are all fair game. Tell us when you shot it, which 'flavor' of Kodachrome, and I am also interested in what camera(s) and lens you used to get those 'nice bright colors'!

    Remember, less than 5 months to get it processed.

    This Thread Is Getting Good!

    This thread is getting good. I hope people continue to share their Kodachrome photos here and it grows into a serious archive. Maybe I'll even add something of my own when I can get to my slide archive in California!

    By the way, I posted a link for this thread on the PhotographyREVIEW.com Facebook page. DRG's slides with the mounts made a great thumbnail link

    Re: Show your Kodachrome!!

    I received my last two rolls of KM in the mail today. It was kind of like Christmas. The one roll was about a year old and I had no idea what was on it. I thought it was going to be photos from Grand Teton NP from last fall. I was wrong. It was used up at the Hyde Mill last winter. The same place I took my final roll to a week and a half ago to use up. Here is a scan from the mystery roll. KM is known for its great colors, but this shot looks B&W on the light table.

    Re: Show your Kodachrome!!

    A few more from the Archives including a 'special' that I am posting separately for Veteran's Day in the Viewfinder forum too.

    The three 'darker and bluer' photographs is what happened with Kodachrome that was underexposed. Not enough differentiation in gradients for it to 'take' the color fully in all areas of the emulsion during processing. This is all pre-Kodachrome II film. I've taken better Picasso Photos in terms of exposure and even focus in one of these two cases, but none have quite the same feel that I've run across on film so far nor on older Kodachrome.

    The ship photograph and the Sardi's restaurant in New York photo which was taken from a cab window are from an archive I own/administer which includes my Grandfather's work.

    So I managed to get four more rolls of Kodachrome (2x of 64, 1x of 25, and 1x of 40) and am shooting it fast and furious over this week.
