After 75 years, Kodak’s Kodachrome film has finished it’s long and successful run. Announced last year that Kodak will discontinue the film stock for photographers as professionals have turned in their film based cameras to a digital platform, Kodachrome was was noted for capturing rich color and light in a way that many say cannot be replicated by digital cameras or apps like Hipstamatic and Instagram. It seems like an end of an era, but like everything, it’s time has come. Probably a good thing when you consider the amount of chemicals that go into developing film stock these days.
Oh, I will miss you Kodachrome, but we’ll always have my childhood!
