I love the sunrise, I think it’s my favorite way to finish all these reels wherein you have a couple of photos and don’t know what to do with it. After a review of all my photos, I realized that there are a lot of dawn photos.
As I was saying, the sunrise and sunsets are the best choice to finish all those reels wherein you have a couple of pictures, and now you’re thinking, ‘What am I going to do to finish off this film?’ The answer is easy, go to your window and immortalize all those beautiful sunrise and sunsets.
You can also do double exposures.
Even you can do multiple exposures, why settle for two?
You can photograph sentences on a computer screen and merge it with the beautiful sky.
If you prefer an easier way, just grab your camera, point to the sky and shoot. A lot of times, the best things are the simple things.

Mitchell Wojcik is based in Brooklyn, New York. He likes "Ghostbusters, and to make whatever comes to mind and document my life as I go."

By far the oddest-looking camera I own, the Electric Eye is an auto-exposure viewfinder camera made by Bell & Howell in the late 1950s. I picked one up online and ended up with another one, that came with a very cool, retro looking carrying case, from my grandfather. It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.

"I have been living in Portland for about 8 years now, off and on and it does feel like home. It is a great place to come back to after traveling. But I think I am happiest on the road or traveling, it feels kind of second nature to me," explains Portland-based photographer Jeff Luker.
We all have our ways of making our cameras our own, making them do what we want, and helping us to remember how to use them. This is my take on making my Sprocket Rocket mine, with marks and hints on making it easier to use.
Don't fear the dark, you'll learn a lot from it. It's time to spruce up your analogue skill set and become a more accomplished film photographer by working inside the darkroom. Once you get the hang of it, you'll become more creative than you ever imagined!
