EMULSIVE 52 Rolls 2016 – Week 01-05 update

Hello one and all! It’s been some time coming but I’m ready to share my 52 Rolls work to date for 2016. Hope you’re in a forgiving mood. I made a resolution this year to not shoot anything aside from some slide and infrared film at box speed. What I should have said, is that I wouldn’t be either shooting or developing those films at the manufacturer’s recommended speeds but that’s a story for another post. New Year’s Resolution: Aside from IR, BW slide and “new” stock, not a single film will be shot at box speed in 2016....

Competition time – #PrintItForward

Sometimes things just time themselves perfectly. I don’t think we share enough of our printed photos. There are too many pixels flying about, which unfortunately don’t come close to the depth of a print. Anyway, back to the idea. A few weeks ago Mike Fraser made the kind gesture of offering a few freebie prints up on Twitter. I suggested he play a little game and send prints to three people, who in turn send three prints to thee people and so on – in the style of the motion picture, Pay It Forward and jokingly called it #PrintItForward....

I am Shawn Mozmode and this is why I shoot film

We all like to dress up now and again but I personally draw the line at stripes, especially if they’re red. Thankfully today’s interviewee has no such qualms, which when looking at his pictures, is a good thing in my book. Here’s to Shawn Mozmode and his rather interesting brand of self-portraits (as well as a competition he helps to create – see further down for details). Over to you, Shawn.     Hi Shawn, what’s this picture, then? This is a self-portrait in the manner of Where’s Waldo. Can you find me?     Ok, so who are...

I am Andrew Sanderson and this is why I shoot film

We’re honoured to have been able to grab some time with Andrew Sanderson, author and Ilford Master Printer. Andrew’s prolific to say the least and in my opinion,  a perfect example of all this is good with the photography community. His efforts towards greater knowledge transfer are admirable and set an example that we should all follow. He’s a man after my own heart. Over to you, Andrew.     Hi Andrew, what’s this picture, then? I took this whilst I was still at college in 1978 and the success of it spurred me on to do more night photography,...

I am Paul Berry and this is why I shoot film

Grab a coffee and a pack of your favorite biscuits, this is going to be a long and interesting read. We’re sitting down with Paul Berry, from the North East of England, to find out what makes him tick. There’s a lot to cover, so it’s difficult to know how to lead you in…it’s probably best to just let him get on with it, so you can enjoy his words and pictures. Over to you, Paul.     Hi Paul, what’s this picture then? This is a street artist in Newcastle. I’ve often heard it said by some quite...

Black and white film high EI shootout part 1: Kodak Tri-X 400, T-MAX 400 and Ilford HP5+, Delta 400 at EI 12800

A few months ago I wrote a post about experimenting with pushing Kodak Tri-X from ISO 800 to 12800. It went down quite well and in the time since, has raised a bit of thought and discussion about the real limits of this film. With all the recent super high ISO digital cameras announced these past few months, I thought it was time to revisit the article and write up a high-EI shootout covering and comparing other fast high speed black and white stocks on the market today…hang on, EI? Ah yes, sorry. In my haste to write the Tri-X article I...

I am Marcus Carlsson and this is why I shoot film

Today we’re sitting down with Marcus Carlsson, Swedish large format aficionado, sometime digital shooter, obsessive DIY-ist and more recently, app developer. We’ll be telling you more about his Analogue App a little later. For now, let’s see what he has to say for himself. Over to you, Marcus.     Hi Marcus, what’s this picture, then? This image is of my little boy – William. It shows in two ways who I am and what I have become. First, when I took the image, I really understood that it’s a pure joy to take portraits with such a big camera...

Introducing the first Half-Baked Half-Frame Tour

Some months ago, I tweeted asking you to send in suggestions for the editorial content on EMULSIVE in 2016. There were lots of suggestions, some good and some very good. I’ve stuck everything in the bank and will be writing up the experiments and reviews that were suggested over the coming weeks and months. One of the craziest, most interesting ideas that came out of it all was to pass a camera around members of the film photography community, with each person taking a few shots before passing it on to the next. To cut a long story short,...

I am Thom Axon and this is why I shoot film

There’s salt in the air and it must have something to with today’s interviewee, Thom Axon.  Thom’s a busy man. Work at sea can take him away for long periods at a time and when he’s back well, let’s just say that life carries on. As if that wasn’t enough, he’s also spent the past few months putting an exciting new website together…but we’ll let him tell you about that himself. Over to you, Thom.     Hi Thom, what’s this picture, then? I chose this image as it was on a roll of film that was a real...
