Curated Photos | December 28, 2015 | Michael Behlen

This week's curated photostream features photography work that captures the theme of "My Favorite Day". The images shown display a huge range in emotion and topics between the photographers asked to present their favorite day in photographic form. Some chose to display their favorite day in spirit, with the mood of their images, others a direct representation of the special moments they have shared with friends are family. No matter how different, these photographs belong together because they all show a single thing. Take these images as inspiration to record your favorite day with a film camera!

Next week, we will have a new theme of "Your New Self (Portrait)" curated by Amy Jasek. Submit a self portrait from 2015 or take a new one to represent your plans for 2016! Happy New Year from the Film Shooter's Collective. We look forward to your submissions!

Michael Behlen

Michael Behlen is a photography enthusiast from Fresno, CA. He works in finance and spends his free time shooting instant film and seeing live music, usually a combination of the two. He has self- published two Polaroid photobooks--“Searching for Stillness, Vol. 1” and “I Was a Pioneer,” literally a boxed set of his instant film work. He exhibited a variety of his photos at Raizana Teas, a Fresno tea room and health food store; his work there, “Polaroid Prints of Landscapes and Strangers,” was up for viewing during the months of June and July, 2014. He has been published, been interviewed, and been reviewed in a quantity of magazines, from” F-Stop” and “ToneLit” to “The Film Shooter’s Collective.” He loves the magic sensuality of instant film: its saturated, surreal colors; the unpredictability of the medium; it’s addictive qualities as you watch it develop. Behlen is the founder and Publisher of “Pryme Magazine.” You can see his work here: www.dontshakeitlikeapolaroid.com
