Our latest feature is a travel story from Mallory Brooks. Mallory traveled to Chile and captured the beautiful colors and textures of the city on 35mm film. Here is more from Mallory about her time in Valparaiso, Chile…

I’m a self-taught street photographer living in Atlanta, Georgia who began shooting film around a year ago. It’s been a learning process as I’ve tried out different cameras and experimented with different films, but shooting film has brought more joy into my photography.

On my most recent trip, I visited the colorful port town of Valparaiso, Chile. After shooting two blank rolls of film in a Canon AE in Paris a few months before (rookie mistake), I decided to stick with the point and shoot Olympus Stylus Zoom 140, because I knew it was reliable! I spent a week wandering the winding hills of Valparaiso, capturing the vibrancy, grit and street animals that roamed around (my favorite part).

I shot a roll of Kodak Ektar 100 and ColorPlus and an expired roll of Kodak Ultramax I found at my parents’ house. I used Indie Film Lab for processing. The Ultramax was my first roll of expired film and I had no idea what I might get, but the results were beautiful and have that look you can only achieve with film. I’m already dreaming of my next colorful destination to capture!

Analog cameras and films used: Olympus Stylus Zoom 140 (Find at KEH Camera or on eBay) | Kodak Ektar 100 (Find on Amazon), Kodak ColorPlus 200 (Find on Amazon), Kodak Ultramax (Find on Amazon)
