Tribute to the Icon of Color Film Photography, Kodachrome.
Making positives out of negatives is slowly moving towards extinction in the world of photography with the digital medium slowly but surely killing the film fraternity.
For someone like me whose wonder years revolved around only films in his early days in the world of photography, it’s disheartening to say the least.
Today another favorite film of mine is becoming the casualty to the needs of the instant digital imaging world. Kodacrome would be no more. A film, which won many a laurels in its 74 years of life in the photography world, is now going out of production.
A film which was the world’s first commercially successful color film that promised every photography lover rich yet realistic tones, vibrant colors and durability, would now only be seen in the history of photography books as Kodak has declared the end of it’s production henceforth.
Here through one of my colorful Kodak moments I pay my humble tribute to the icon, Kodachrome.
