Chicago Film Medley

Noe Todorovich

When I travel, much of my packing time is spent deliberating which cameras, if any, to bring with me. I like to travel light, given my propensity for walking miles upon miles exploring, but I also like to document my travels. On this last trip to Chicago, I opted for just my 35mm film camera and iPhone. I brought two rolls of B&W and one of color. I also realized that double exposures are often my favorite shots but I seldom shoot them, so this time around I made an extra effort on that front. Some of the results are below...

All B&W self-developed and scanned. Color processing and scans provided by The FIND Lab.

Ilford SFX200

Throwback to my first batch of film when getting back into it!

Throwback to my first batch of film when getting back into it!

When I first got back into film photography, I excitedly ordered a few different rolls of film from B&H. Alas, my camera I was so eager to use had a jammed shutter. Lesson learned that day: test the shutter BEFORE loading the film (duh). One roll of film I got was Ilford SFX200 because I wanted to dabble in infrared. While it's not a "true" infrared, it is more sensitive and used for creative effects. 

After about two years, I finally used this roll at the tail end of my trip to Chicago and then back in DC and on my first visit to the Arlington National Cemetery. I used some of the film without a filter but also got some great tips on filters to use for special effects by asking for input on Twitter. (Thanks, @ILFORDphoto & @believeinfilm for sharing my tweet and to all who responded!)

When using the IR720 filter, I metered normally with the filter off and then dropped the exposure five stops as my base. I bracketed my shots in most cases but found this base to be pretty accurate for my exposures most of the time. I really like the results, both with and without filters. I'll definitely try experimenting further with this film...

Things have finally slowed down a little bit for me to catch my breath after a crazy last month or so. I thought this would be a great time to take a look at some of the film I've shot but not yet shared. So here's a little time travel back to February and March when I went back to the West Coast to shoot a wedding and visit friends out that way.

Rain Room

When I first saw a picture of the Rain Room exhibit at the MoMA in New York City, my curiosity was piqued. Of course, it WAS a picture Paul Ocatvious took, so, you know, he makes magic.

In any event, I thought it would be great to see, and I'm glad it worked out in the end (sorta...we had to do the viewing option where you walk along the side of the installation because some crazies got in line at 4 am during the closing weekend. FOUR AM?! Pass...)

Without further ado, some film shots from the experience (and the line)...
