Did this woman you’ve been crushing on for years ask you out of the blue if you have an extra roll of film? Or did a nearby water dam spring a leak and you shoved in a film canister to stop it? We’ve all got awesome tales of how having a handy roll of film quickly changed things. Tell us your story, complete with pictures of course, and leave the link to your blog post here. The most popular one will get 15 Piggies which can be used to buy more film! 2 Runners-up get 5 Piggies to boot. Good luck!

    Caleb Savage: Into the Darkroom, Out in the Open

    When asked to recall the moment they first became truly interested in photography, most photographers would remember the magical feeling of picking up a hand-me-down or secondhand camera, the thrill of shooting an entire roll through, and the elation upon seeing and holding their first ever set of photographs. Caleb Savage, however, had quite a unique experience. At 10 years old, he had his first taste of working in the darkroom making prints at Boy Scout camp, thereby beginning a more than a decade-long affinity with photography.
