24 Frames of Film: Pase Adelante Series

Rudy Giron: 24 frames of film May 2015 &emdash;

This picture shows a shop that sells DVD films and two arcade game machines for rent from Ciudad Vieja.

During May I was walking around with a film camera loaded with an expired roll of Fujifilm Superia X-tra 400 color film from 2001. The theme was entitled “Pase adelante” or “Come in” which is what vendors would say as you enter their business. I tried to show all kinds of business as seen from the doorway. About half the roll is from the tiny business found in villages around Antigua Guatemala while the rest of the roll was captured on the more affluent shops in downtown Antigua Guatemala.

The film was developed and scanned at 6 megapixels [about 8″x10″] at my local Kodak mini lab. Next, I am thinking of shooting some black and white C41 chromogenic film as this is the easiest and least expensive way to have film developed, scanned and printed. I have a few more themes in mind, for instance, portraits of the vendors inside the mercado central of Antigua Guatemala.
