In june 2009, Kodak announced the end of Kodachrome, after over 70 years in production, renowned for its sharp, highly saturated colours and pastel tones, and used by famous photographers all over the world, notably for national geographic, kodachrome had come to an end. The fantastic colour rendition and other complex colour layers of the film had been achieved, but at a cost. To produce this complex film which lately had only accounted for a few % of its production, Kodak decided to cease production. However, luckily, film has still been obtainable, untill stocks last, and Dwayne's photo lab in Kansas still processes it untill the end of 2010, an opportunity for me to secure a few reels of K64 and K25 (the 2 main, most well known variants of this film) and shoot a year of kodachrome, before it is totally gone.
pictures will be added to this gallery untill the end of 2010.
All pictures in this gallery have been uploaded as shot, with no modifications made, unless stated otherwise.
