We think the all new Kodak Moments app is pretty great. But you don’t have to take it from us. Check out what these bloggers all think of this app that allows you to print the pictures on your phone and have them shipped to home or to a store for pickup.
Today’s Film Friday guest blog post comes from pro photographer Shaun James Cox.
Originally from North Wales, I moved to London to study photography. I’ve been working as professional photographer since 2010, covering fashion editorial, exclusive events and society reportage worldwide. I have worked exclusively for royalty, society, fashion houses and celebrities. I work closely with the British Fashion Council, who play a crucial role in nurturing and supporting British talent.
I began my photography education by shooting on analogue and being in the darkroom, processing and developing film; it is a beautiful place to learn and work. These days I take my film into labs, but it’s good to have that background of hands-on in traditional photography.
I shoot my personal work on film. There is something special about film which digital doesn’t quite express: the sense of creation and tangibility, where each frame feels especially important and considered. That said, because many clients often need images the same day, I shoot the majority of my commercial work digitally. It’s efficient.
Most of the film I shoot is 120mm and I tend to use a lot of Kodak Portra film, especially the Portra 160 and Portra 400 . Both give beautiful tones and colours that work well with my style. I have some Portra 800 stock in the fridge, which I will be using to shoot backstage at this season’s London Fashion Week. Apart from the regular & expired stock I shoot, I have some 35mm colour IR in the freezer that I’m really excited about – it’s just waiting for the right project to get the best from it.

This past week my Facebook and Instagram feeds were filled with back to school pictures. It was fun to see the creative ways parents were documenting those first day of school moments.
A simple sign is a great way to keep track of first day shots from year to year.
An even easier approach is some chalk and a spot in the driveway.
On a driveway there is no limit to your artistic creations.
And it’s fun when the kids get involved too.
Chances are when you are snapping those pictures before the kids head off to school, you reach for your phone. Other than posting to Facebook, where the photos will eventually move down and off your timeline, what will you do with those photos? Remember how your own school pictures used to hang on the walls of your childhood home?
If these are memories you don’t want to lose, you can download the KODAK MOMENTS App and print those pictures on your phone. The app is easy to use and you can have them shipped to your home or pick the up at a local store. You can download KODAK MOMENTS App for iOS or Android.
