It’s like Christmas day

Just received a shipment today from both Freestyle and Amazon, and went on a little shopping mission in Weed/Mt Shasta.  I have a whole lot of new goodies I intend on playing with.  No fancy tutorials this post, just possibly a preview of what’s to come and maybe an awesome shopping tip!

All the loot (including very special packing peanuts you saw in my last project/post)


All kinds of yummy film and paper

Some empty film canisters, a matchbook and random hardware store stuff… I know it’s weird, I promise this will make sense later.


Not that you can tell in this picture, but a spare body cap and spare cover for the back of a lens cap.  Again, this will be interesting in a future post as well.


Liquid Light, which is a liquid emulsion.  Another sneak peak.


And the shopping steal for the day, which anyone in or around Weed, CA can benefit from…


This lot of Kodak film (8 rolls total) cost me $4.  That’s right, 50 cents a roll.  Well, one reason may be that I got it from a thrift store and it expired in 2003, but they’ve reported back good results despite its expiration and this film is great for playing around with since a lot of the stuff on this blog is experimental anyway.  The thrift store is located on the main street in Weed across from the bowling alley and still has a ton of the stuff.

Well, you might be able to guess some stuff for the future – while others might be a mystery, but I think I’m going to be having a lot of fun in the future.  Will post tutorials and explanations as soon as I have results.  :)
