Hey, hey, hey Outblushers, it's time once again for a word from our resident photo-know-it-all, Meggan Haller. Meggan and her husband Jeff, the owners of Keyhole Photo, serve up gorgeous wedding and documentary photography, and recently won the 2010 Bride's Choice Awards from WeddingWire.com. Want more? Check out their blog, look, for a daily dose of awesome.
If you're going to the trouble and expense of shooting actual 35mm film, why waste all that perfectly good light-sensitive space between and around each frame? If you haven't used film in awhile (or ever for the kids out there), then cast your mind back to the nineties and beyond. Remember those sprockets along the edges of the film, the little holes that made it so you could advance to the next frame (yes, you used to have to manually advance the film between frames)? That's some valuable picture-taking space you're leaving on the table with each roll. No more! The Sprocket Rocket Panorama Camera ($89) utilizes every extra inch with its super-wide lens. The results (like these) take 35mm film photography to new heights and widths!
