Kodachrome

Kodachrome was the world’s most popular color film from 1935 until it was sadly discontinued in 2009. As a slide film, opposed to negative, the colors are exceptional. There are hundreds of thousands of Kodachrome slides for sale on line. If you find a picture you like, you can buy it and digitally scan it to make prints. You can also do it the old- fashioned way: analogue.

I found this slide on eBay and I’m having an analogue print made of it for my dad as a Christmas gift. My dad loves trains so I thought this would be neat. There’s a shop in Portland called Blue Moon Camera that will make analogue prints and enlargements on light sensitive paper if you bring them developed film. I can’t wait to see how this turns out!
