Film review: Fuji Instax Mini Monochrome

Welcome to – to the best of our knowledge – the world’s first review of Fuji Instax Mini Monochrome! Technically the film isn’t supposed to be released until some time in October 2016 but I’ve no word of an embargo, so here goes. Fuji Instax Mini is hands-down FUN to use and whilst Instax Wide – with its increased resolution – produces images of an arguably higher quality (in relative terms), the Mini format has its charms. Sure the camera’s are mostly fully automatic but it’s only a matter of time before someone sees sense and gives us the option...

Kodak Tri-X 400 development times – EI 200 to EI 25600

My recent Ilford FP4+ development times article seemed to cause quite a buzz. Mostly around the topic of “why would you even try to shoot this film at EI 6400?!” I’m not really one for standing still and with that in mind, I’ve decided to publish my personal development times for Kodak’s Tri-X 400 from EI 200 all the way up to EI 25600. As with the times published in the Ilford FP4+ article, the tables below show both real world tested and untested (extrapolated) development times for this film. The times listed below may not work for everyone (differences in water...

I am Rob Davie and this is why I shoot film

Today I’m delighted to bring Rob Davie for your intellectual consumption. Rob’s based in York in the UK and can be seen – I’m told – either looking through the waist level finder of his RB67, or sitting on a using the same camera as a dumbell…go figure. Over to you, Rob!     Hi Rob, what’s this picture, then? RD: I call this one “angles”. In its physical existence the object photographed is a tractor sitting in a shed at the Yorkshire Museum of Farming near York, UK. That might sound like an odd way to describe a photograph but it...

Let’s Explore Magazine Issue 01: The road to independent publishing

Let me get this out of the way: I unashamedly love Let’s Explore Magazine. The idea, the platform, the Kickstarter campaign and the beautiful outpouring of support that was the result of Issue 00 hitting doormats the world over at the end of 2015. My own copy sits inside it’s sturdy envelop having been carefully read back-to-back several times. So, when I heard that LEM head honcho Kilian Idsinga was going to be self-funding LEM Issue 01 and would not be using the help of another Kickstarter campaign, I had to find out more and see if I could lend a...

Why shoot film? – Gerhard Reininger

So…why shoot film? Frankly, there is no sensible reason for shooting film. Concerning technical issues, digital has outrun film in most aspects: more pixels, incredible ISO-range, faster processing speed – let alone the possibilities of instant control and even making movies. So…. why shoot film?     Just pick up any film camera you find – either deep inside your grandfathers drawer or at any eBay-store for a bargain – and let us open a freshly bought box of film and unroll it just long enough so that it reaches from one side of the camera to the other, where...

Photostory – Beauty from disaster by Louis Sousa

I’ll keep this short. I’d like to present a ten-step process that may help you to obtain beauty from disaster (as I did below). They are as follows: Shoot a beautiful truck (in my case) with 35mm Kodak Ektar 100. The perfect film for brilliant blue. Sweat all over the film spool in the rubberized dark bag that you will later throw in the trash. The film should not successfully spool on to the development reel. Mar the film. Re-roll the film, sweat on it a bit more and add some fingerprints. Decide to use the closet. Cover the light leaks with...
