Anybody that has followed my Flickr page for any time knows that I love Coca-Cola art and advertising. I don't just like the old Coke signs and adds, I like to create them, using my camera and Photoshop. I love this old Coke bottle. I found it at an antiques store in Boulder City, Nevada. I got the idea, for the world map soda spill, from another Flickr user. I did put my own twist on it. Shot with my Canon 5D mark ii and 40mm prime pancake lens.

I started out shooting film when I first started photography, and have shot it ever since, but it was always in black and white. And although I loved so many aspectz of it, I loved colors even more and took a break from film for a year after my first Hasselblad broke.
I saved my money religiously and bought myself a new one, and now I am absolutely enamored. The way the image looks through the glass, the uncertainty of how the images came out after the shoot, the tangibility, and the work you have to put in - I love it all.
The main thing I missed when switching back to color film though was processing the film myself, it's all the fun parts of chemistry class with none of the math and memorization! So I've been researching it for weeks, and will start developing my own color film! I have a darkroom in my bathroom, so I already have all the equipment, I just had to buy the chemicals! I'll keep ya'll updated on how it goes :D
