EMULSIVE 52 Rolls 2016 Week 10-13 update

“What is this mysterious object in the sky? Why does it burn my eyes? What is this feeling on my skin? Whatever it is, it can’t be good.” Minutes pass and a memory begins creeping to the front of my mind, “Ah yes, I remember..it’s called heat. And that glowing ball…s-s-s-sun!” I wish I was joking, it feels like an eternity since I last saw the sun hanging in a cloudless sky. The past few months have been dull and gray to say the least; and the rain has been pouring for so long that I no longer remember...

Camera review: Me and my Olympus OM-1N by Sandeep Sumal

Today we’re handing over to Sandeep Sumal, better known as Twitter’s @givemeabiscuit, for a review of his personal weapon of choice, the Olympus OM-1n. Over to you, Sandeep!   The Olympus OM-1 was introduced in 1973 and was originally launched as the M-1, which relatively quickly had to be changed to the OM-1 as Leica felt it was too close to their M series.  According to Olympus it earned acclaim as the worlds smallest and lightest 35mm single-lens reflex camera… …blah blah blah blah we can all google this background stuff, let me instead tell you why I chose...

Camera review: Me and my Canon 7 Rangefinder by Andrew MacGregor

It’s once again time to hand over the EMULSIVE reins to another eager contributor. This time, it’s Andrew MacGregor — better known as Mr. ShootFilmRideSteel — giving us his take on the wonderful Canon 7 rangefinder. Over to you, Andrew.   As far as the Rocky Mountains go, Green Mountain is hardly a mountain. It’s technically a mesa, and not very high. It’s unremarkable among the peaks on the Front Range. But it’s still challenging; 200 feet higher than the tallest peak in the Appalachian Mountains, and climbing it is good exercise. When I climb it, I don’t just...

This is one of the photographs that really set in motion my MFA thesis work, as well as reinforced my desire to photograph the vehicular landscape at night on film. I was out...

Developing motion picture film in your own darkroom by Mr. D Cow Esquire

Busting myths and soon to be busting out of EMULSIVE HQ, it’s over to Diz for his how-to. Here we go!...
