Last Roll of Kodachrome | Steve McCurry
Steve McCurry is one of my favourite.
I am wondering if the film images we see go through traditional wet room process or digitially edited.
I remember this series. It's been a while, but looking at them makes me wonder (again) how Steve does it.
how digital has influenced today's photographer... even with the last roll. i'm referring to the other nikon dslr to take test shots before shooting in the final roll of film.
Whew, those are some great images. Looks like the last roll was in good hands
Really nice look to the grain and colors, I especially like the first portrait of De Niro
Theres a matching Nat Geo video too -National Geographic: The Last Roll of Kodachrome - YouTube
So did mama take his Kodachrome away?
Not quite the last roll - that's in one of my cameras, half exposed. Mind you, it will never be processed now and even if it was it wouldn't contain 36 keepers like Steve got! I wonder if he used the trick of a short wind-on to sueeze out a 37th frame?
Of coarse we now have Lightroom!
"So Mama, don't take my Lightroom away!"
I found a little red and yellow can in an old box at work. Inside was a roll of Kodachrome II. I sometimes think of shooting it (I still have a functional Pentax SP500) but it just sits on my shelf.
If you mean, Mama Kodak, then Yes, she did.
End of an important era. A bit sad, but great shots.
I always preferred ektachrome - way cooler! Pun intended!
Kodachrome has the best color ever for my personal taste and Mr. Mccurry did a wonderful job on the last roll.
So I DID spell "mama" correctly!:smile:
My tribute to Kodakchrome

Yea you did .. Mine was a typo .. I was not trying to correct your spelling there.
On a side note, I am sad that I never got to shot a roll of Kodachrome. When I started to shoot slide film in High school, Ektachrome rolls were cheaper and I processed it myself. Then later on I would find color print film for about a dollar a roll; I would have my local mini lab process the negatives with an index sheet for five or six dollars a roll and then I would scan the negatives. I guess I always thought I could shoot Kodachrome some other time when I didn't have to pinch pennies. But then before I knew it, it was too late.
Although I think you meant "of course", not "of coarse"? :smile:
Much like using Polaroid test shots in the old days, I guesss. Interestinlgy enough, when I still shoot film, I shoot completely manual - no meter, no AF, largely because my film cameras nave no working meter or no meter at all. That is one of the thrills for me of still shooting film, I force myself to sense the light better and fall back on years of shooting a particular film speed in particular light (or, in a pinch, the sunny 16 rule). Admittedly, in iffy light, I will do a quick check on a digital camera to get a quick read on exposure.
