I Wrote an Article for Petapixel!

Hey, check out the article I wrote on my Instamatic photo project for Petapixel. If you can, please do me a favor and give the page a "like" and write a comment about the photos and such. Much appreciated!
I'll post some of the article here next week as well.

Great post! It was wonderful reading about your experiences with the Kodak Instamatic. I completely agree with getting away from menus, focusing areas, white balance, etc. It's best to focus on shooting and why I still shoot film. I especially liked your idea of making diptychs and triptychs.

Will you be writing more for PetaPixel?

Hi Villanova,

Thanks for looking and the nice feedback! I have two more ready-to-go articles. One on my shoot for the FDNY, and another on a cool Infrared project. I don't know if it they'll appear on Petapixel or elsewhere. I also wrote a comedic novel that I hope to get published. So far I haven't been able to find a literary agent for it. I may put it on Amazon Kindle or make a screenplay out of it. Just having fun. Still have a few hundred new negs to scan. Wish I didn't need to pay bills so i could work on all this full time. Cheers!

I read it before I saw your post. Nice work! That camera really takes me back to my childhood.

Great article - literally just read it on Petapixel and then flipped over here, not realising who the author was. It brought me back to the the start of my photography with 126. I had an Agfa myself back about 1972.

LOL - small world. There's a new header photo now -- rather than unpack lights and such - it's too too hot in NYC area today -- so I lit the shot (see above) with a $29 triple pole lamp that I somehow tilted and balanced on a desk chair - amazing thing that automatic white balance

Wish I'd known you were doing this, I could have sent you a supply of cubes.

A very well done article, Dan. I've been thinking about reloading some cartridges with new film, and shooting my Instamatic 500. Had an X45 back when I was in the Navy because no one would steal it. It was great until the winding mech broke, then I switched to an X35, and put an adapter on it so I could use electronic flash.
