Film Fridays – 35mm Roller Derby Photography

One of my new year’s resolutions for 2011 was to shoot more film, and I think it was pretty successful. Though I wasn’t perfectly consistent with Film Fridays, I know posting them got me thinking about film, shooting film, and showing film much more than I would’ve otherwise. And I plan to keep going with Film Fridays and film in general in 2012!

For the Los Angeles Derby Dolls season championships game, I shot some film alongside digital. Manually focusing on fast skaters in a dark warehouse is definitely a challenge. There’s a lot more on flickr, but this was one of my favorite film shots of the night.

And speaking of roller derby, though not necessarily film-related, this shot I took of Tara Armov has been nominated as “Most Derby” Photo of the Year in DerbyLife’s photography contest. I’m of course very honored to be in the running. Show some support for Tara and LADD if you feel like voting!
