An introduction to Luminograms with Michael Jackson

If you’re a regular reader of EMULSIVE interviews, then you may remember our piece with Michael Jackson and his wonderful work at Poppit Sands back in October last year. You may also have noticed that most of his output of late hasn’t been (directly) of the beach he’s spent the past eight years capturing on film. It’s all a little…abstract. Enter the Luminogram. I’ve been fascinated by them ever since first being introduced to the form by one of Michael’s tweets: Head Study, silver gelatin Luminogram — Michael Jackson (@MikeGJackson) October 26, 2015 On first glance, they look like charcoal drawings; bold outlines,...

I am Chris Wood and this is why I shoot film

Welcome to this week’s EMULSIVE interview, featuring the thoughts and photography of Chris Wood, recent convert (is that the right phrase?), to film photography. Over to you, Chris     What’s this picture, then? Jellyfish It’s one of my happiest experiments. Sealife centres are fantastic for a little day out but absolutely whack for film photography, unless you’re pushing some seriously fast film. Most of my shots were blurry from 1/15th shutter, or just too dark, but this was the perfect set up, a Jelly Fish tank with a rotating light display. Four exposures later and here we are....

Don’t kill yourself to take a photograph

One Saturday in mid-October 2015, I decided to take a walk over to my preferred film lab and put some freshly developed black and white negatives in for scanning. My better half had arranged to spend some time with her family that afternoon, so I planned to make the most of it and meander over whilst messing around with a new-ish lens – a lovely Voigtlander 21/4. I’d loaded some Ilford SFX 200 the day before and although I still had half a roll left to burn, the light was flat and uninteresting, so not much of a dent was made and my meander...

Welcome to today’s EMULSIVE interview. We’re sitting down with Oliver Liria, Spanish native, now ensconced in London, England, Oliver started shooting film just three and a half short years ago and finds himself well…finds himself rather burdened with the difficulty of choice. More on that a bit later but for now, it’s over to Oliver.   ​ Hi Oliver, what’s this picture,then? I took this at a local bar whilst enjoying a beer with a friend. The reason why this photograph has some meaning to me was because along with a few other photographs from around this period, they were...
