Kodak To Retire Kodachrome

ROCHESTER, N.Y.–Eastman Kodak Company announced today that it will retire KODACHROME Color Film this year, concluding its 74-year run as a photography icon.















Almost in a poetic way, the end of Kodachrome seals the fate for film. Yea, its true E6 is still out there and there are craftsmen that embrace the art. However, the 500 lbs gorilla in the room is DIGITAL. Even the best chrome to be published needs to be digitized and subject to the limitation perceived by the medium.


Back in the day if you were shooting something you wanted to save forever, Kodachrome was the only way to shoot. 

As this chapter/ era comes to a close, Kodak has set up a nice tribute to KODACHROME Film with the work from Eric Meola and Peter Guttman.

Video coverage of Superstition @ StudioNemo

On Friday StudioNemo hosted Superstition, featuring the art of: Aaron Piland, Jesse Brown, Barndi Strickland, Ryan Bubnis, Cody Hudson, Betsy Walton, and Emma Trithart. If you didn’t make it you missed out! For those of you that failed to experience the show, here’s a video capturing the radness.


Adapting to their new life in Oregon, Jen, Michael and Tanner experience some true Oregon experiences. Crab hunting, Fish on a Stick and Dutch Oven cooking are required to be a true Oregonians! The Norman Rockwell of our era, Michael Cogliantry never fails to make me smile!

In the first episode of the new season, Michael and Jen find themselves deep within the Oregon wilderness at a place called “Lost Lake”. Determined to once and for all catch his family’s dinner, Michael explains several ways of obtaining food from the surrounding area including crabbing, fishing and finally, dutch oven cooking in the fire pit.
