Looking behind the scene’s of Creative Images by Jaxs and Kim and the pictures that you see. Jaxs and Kim use Kodak camera’s and paper. Kodak has long been a favorite. The quality of prints and the ease of using a camera is the reality of a dream that George Eastman had back in the late 1880″s. A dream that has enabled so many other’s to fulfill their dreams. From the family photo album to business presentations and film Kodak has been there.
Jaxs and Kim use Kodak camera’s to bring you professional quality picture’s printed on Kodak paper. Jax’s remembers his mother telling him in the early !970’s that it’s not the price of a camera that makes the picture. It’s the person that is taking the picture that makes a great photo.
Jaxs set out with his instamatic camera with 110 film and practiced taking pictures. Having a creative eye Jaxs soon found a new way to express his artistic talents.
To take a great picture Jaxs had to learn a few things. Having a love for science Jaxs learned lighting in a high school physics class. What he learned took his artistic talents to a new level. What your eye’s see and what the eye of the camera see’s are very different. Once you have an understanding of that you are one step closer to taking great picture’s. Each color has a wavelength. Our eyes do not pick up as many wavelengths as the eye of the camera does. To demonstrate this take a picture of a friend wearing a white tee shirt (standing under a shade tree} in the early morning and then again at high noon. Compare the difference’s.
Kim started using Kodak camera’s in the !990’s. Her first camera was a Kodak Brownie Starflash that used 127 mm film. The camera belonged to her mother that had died from uterine cancer when Kim was only six years old.
Finding film for the camera was not a problem. Getting someone to develop the film was a problem. The camera was stolen so Kim then purchased a Kodak 110 and later on started using the Kodak Easy Share Camera. Kim loves taking pictures especially of clouds. It wasn’t until 2009 that Kim began to learn more about technique in taking pictures from Jaxs.
The introduction of digital technology has taken camera’s to a whole new level. Kodak has kept it’s founder George Eastman’s dream alive with it’s continuing research and development of camera’s. Digital camera’s have a bandwidth of up to 750nm. In other word’s the digital camera sensors have the ability to pick up some infared and ultraviolet rays. When used properly great pictures are the end result.
Jaxs and Kim thank the Eastman Kodak Company for keeping the dream alive!
