BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) — Eastman Kodak Co. has filed for bankruptcy protection, making every effort to balance costs with declining revenues.
The 130-year-old firm has taken quite the hit in this now-digital
world, but the company's president says, "We are still making billions
of feet of film."
Is film photography already dead? The professionals say no.
"Oh, no. Film is not dead at all. It's very much alive. We are just
so inspired by it," says Christina Looker of Made You Look Photography
in Bakersfield. Her company has found its own niche with film
photography. Clients, she says, are actually requesting film, because
they like the look and the idea of it.
Bakersfield College photography professor Kristopher Stallworth says
he thinks film is still the pinnacle of quality. According to him, the
evidence is in his own black-and-white photography.
