Film Photography on the Streets of NYC!

Recap - The Film Photography Podcast (FPP) meet-up in New York City - May 19, 2012

The FPP is a global internet radio show for and about people who love and shoot film. The New York meet-up was an opportunity for listeners to meet the show hosts and spend a day shooting film!

The event was organized by FPP regular contributor Dan Domme. Video (above) was shot and edited by James Jankiewicz.

"Fink!" Excellent. I really enjoyed this and I kind of wish there was an equivalent from the UK meet-up. Maybe next time.

Fantastic! (Packtastic to!), the video is top notch, I really wish I could have made it out!

Kudos to Nick - I'm stunned that someone found Polaroid roll film that would produce an image. The last roll film I used was in the 60's in my uncle's camera. Too bad it's (almost) gone forever - it had it's own allure. Maybe a new (totally) impossible project?
