System overload this week at The Film Shooters Collective headquarters. It’s really difficult to stay caught up with so much going on, and everything we’re working on. Here’s what’s new this week with the FSC.
On the Blog
On our blog this week we’re talking about $40 cameras. A bunch of people from all over the web came to contribute words and photos and the result is really beautiful. You’d be surprised by how many great cameras are out there and what people are shooting with them. Here’s a few of my favorites from that post. You can check out the whole post here.
A couple of the pillars of our community, Amy Jasek and Ruby Falls, came together to come up with the Collective Inspiration Challenge. The goal is to show how we inspire one another and how we’re using community to take our photography further. They’re doing some really cool stuff, and you can check out the first installment here.
Our private Facebook group has been abuzz with issues of uneven development lately. First with my own negatives, and then with those of Nancy Lehrer. You can read all about her issues with uneven development here, and I’ll be posting about my conversation with Ilford in the next few weeks.
Also on Facebook, one of our members Greg Williamson posted this great Nobuyoshi Araki quote in our private Facebook group:
On Twitter Efrain Bojorquez is drooling all over the Plaubel W67 I posted on Twitter - https://twitter.com/ebojorq/status/586883850736832512
Dizd confessed to having blacked out in a camera shop after I did the same and came around with my Amex on fire.
Finally, here’s how our photostream looked for the week.
