Do you remember when you dug that Polaroid camera out of storage only to discover they didn’t make film for it anymore? Can you even remember the last time you actually had film developed? Contrary to popular belief (we’re guilty of it too), no amount of Photoshop, Lightroom or Instagram work will ever truly duplicate the look and feel of analog film. You can get close, but it will never be quite as imperfectly excellent. Jonathan Canlas shoots exclusively on film and wants you to know the medium isn’t actually dead. Film Is Not Dead: A Digital Photographer’s Guide to Shooting Film is a 10×8 hardcover book will do exactly that—teach us all how to shoot on film again. Learn about everything from tone and color characteristics of different films to how to create proper exposures from the man that’s essentially Jobs of the film world.
The Throttle Bottle Opener is a pint-sized beer popper that’s more clever than you realize. While its compact size make it ideal for tossing on a keyring, its miniscule build is only one of the benefits here. Outfitted with a powerful rare earth magnet, each Throttle Bottle Opener easily finds its way to your bottle’s cap. Not only that, you can keep it on the fridge so it’s on hand whenever you pull out a cold one. Then, use it with one hand to open that bottle. Clever, tiny, and incredibly useful.
