I've been happily shooting digitally for the last 3 years. Prior to that my passion was Kodachrome slide film for my documentary and fine art work (weddings were always shot on negative film and I don't think my dog photography could have be done in a non-digital world). Like many photographers I just LOVED the beauty of Kodachrome and how it rendered my world view. As Kodak announced last year that it was discontinuing the film it's no surprise to learn that a lab in Kansas just processed the very last rolls of Kodachrome. The honor was given to photographer Steve McCurry. Read about the final lab run here.
Below is a sample of images I shot on Kodachrome with everything from Nikon's FM2, F4 and F100, to an Olympus point-and-shoot. I feel very deeply about this selection of images - some are very personal and some are the first images I took that made me fall in love with photography. I included rounded edges to convey the feeling of looking at the chrome in the original Kodak slide mount. All are now part of photographic history.
