Perhaps you've heard National Geographic photographer, Steve McCurry, received Kodak's last roll of Kodachrome. He finished the shoot, and the roll has been developed. What would you take if that honor had been yours?
Robert Cohen of the Post-Dispatch decided for himself, digging out of the deep freeze his last roll of Kodachrome. http://videos.stltoday.com/p/video?id=17558321&genre_id=1594
Dwayne's Photo Service in Parsons, Kansas is the only place you can still get Kodachrome developed. From their website: "Kodachrome Film Status: The last day of processing for all types of Kodachrome film will be December 30th, 2010. The last day Kodak will accept prepaid Kodachrome film in Europe is November 30th, 2010. Film that is not in our lab by noon on December 30th will not be processed."
I'm debating. I have some Kodachrome 25 and 40 in the defrosted freezer. Should I shoot it? Or should I allow my memories to be as vivid as the last shot I took using Kodachrome several years ago? Will I be disappointed in the results? Perhaps the freeze-thaw cycles over the years have aged those rolls of Kodachrome. I have four months to decide. Seems bright colors of summer are the perfect time to use my rolls rather than waiting until a cold foggy wintery morning on the river.
What images are on your last roll of Kodachrome? Do you know yet? Will you discover them? Time is running out.
One day only - Sunday, Sunday, Sunday! September 12th, 9:00 am to 2:30 pm, at the Holiday Inn, 3400 Rider Trail South, Earth City, Missouri. "Buy, sell, trade everything photographic." http://www.camerahow.biz/
I talked with the folks at Creve Coeur Camera, and while you might like to sell some old equipment, there may or may not be a buyer or one willing to pay your price. Still, it is an opportunity to clean your closet of equipment you've forgotten how to use.
Word on the street is that Canon AE-1 camera bodies are hard to sell. No real market. I got four batches of chocolate chip cookies for a Canon AT-1 plus 50mm f/1.4 and 75-205mm a few years back; however, at this camera show, they will offer cash, not cookies.
Since I was at CCC, I picked up a copy of their Workshop class schedule for Sept/Oct. They are also on-line at: http://www.cccamera.com/class-schedule.html

Are you letting your camera gather dust waiting for the next Artists Guild Model Shoot? Why wait? We have lots of the photographers who would like to shoot with you. Schedule a small group to shoot either in a studio or on a location, book a model or two. Share the costs. Use the power of the Saint Louis Artists Guild to work for you!
Need help with booking a model? Don't know where to start? Engage in that conversation with your fellow Guild members. On-line model agencies or modeling sites make finding a model as simple as an email. Don't expect models to come running for a TFP/TFCD arrangement, and some do not like group shoots. Try the next one.
