My Kodachrome T-Shirt

25

Kodak took our Kodachrome away and I have not even shot a single roll. Since it seems impossible to get a roll and send it to Dwayne's Photo, I decided to create a T-shirt in honor of this unique emulsion.

Kodachrome T-shirt

I was desperately trying to buy some rolls of this special emulsion so I can still send the films to Dwayne's but I remained unsuccessful. I decided to print a T-shirt of the Kodachrome logo instead.

It was almost impossible to find a suitable picture for vectorization on the internet, so in the end, I redesigned it myself. And since I could not decide between the two of them, I would like to share both:

    I still have a 1988 roll, 5 years after I was born, I was too broke to shoot and get it developed :(
    Hopefully some magic happens and it puts my kids through college.

    So how does one save/view/manipulate a SVG file? I want my own version of that!

  23. floriansimon
    floriansimon ·

    save: there are so many options, but the simplest might be to right-click on the link and click "Save as" or "Download"
    view: in a modern web browser like "safari", "google chrome" or "firefox"
    manipulate: for example "inkscape" (open source) or "illustrator" (by adobe)

    Spinner 360: Pull the Cord and Let the Magic Happen!

    The story between the Spinner 360 and I goes way back to the year 2010, when Lomography decided to send me a beta model of the Spinner 360 to test. It was a complete surprise! I thought, "What the hell is that?" as I first took this camera out of the package. Then, when my little brother grabbed it from me and pulled the cord, it buzzed and turned 360°! We all had the same expression: "Whoa..."

    Wide-Angle Trio: So Simple, So Different

    Lomographers know that once you start collecting cameras, it's difficult to stop yourself. It has a very logical explanation: every camera produces unique images that are impossible to get using another camera. In this article, I decided to compare three cameras with wide-angle lenses.

    Fresh from the Lab: 1990

    A weekend without a lomowalk seems bad, at least for me. One Saturday morning, I decided to join my friends in their lomowalk. It was all cloudy at first but it didn't stop me from going out and walking. I brought my new Nikon FM2 and some expired rolls, just to test my camera. Was it just me being sleepy, or was my Nikon FM2 acting up? My photos turned out grainy, pale, and, in my opinion, looking so 1990s?

    RYU x RIO: World Cup 2014 on Kodak Aerochrome Film

    Weeks have passed and yet Germans are still celebrating the victory of their heroic football team. Shortly before the World Cup started, we took notice of an interesting photography project on Kickstarter. Berlin-based sports photographer Ryu Voelkel called for help to create a football photography book like no other. The campaign was successfully funded. Ryu made his way to Brazil and came back with amazing shots including some very special Kodak Aerochrome photographs. Meet Ryu and learn more about him and his special moments at the WC 2014.

    I was given a roll of LomoChrome Purple 120 by a friend who was keen for me to try it out since he didn't have a medium format camera. I really didn't expect the results I got when I took it out for a test run on a bright winter's day in London.

But today I decided to write something about my days, especially about my weekend in Bandung. It's not much but I take it as the start of a new beginning in writing all over again here.

    Summer Hot Spots: Escaping the Heat at Cameron Highlands

    It’s normal during summer to be out there at the beach, sunbathing and getting yourself a nice tan, but in Malaysia, it could get pretty hot this time of the year. With the rising temperature, my friends and I decided to escape the heat of the city for a while and took an approximately three-hour drive to Cameron Highlands.
