I am Richard Pickup and this is why I shoot film

I’m hoping you remember today’s interviewee from his wonderful contributed article discussing the importance and impact of effective visualisation for film photographers. If you haven’t read it yet head on over, we’ll wait. Back? Excellent. There’s no arguing that Richard Pickup knows a thing or two about photography. Remember when you were at school and you thought that the teachers knew barely more than you? That’s not the case here. Over to you, Richard.     Hi Richard, what’s this picture, then? RP: I did a lot of street photography in 2000 when this photograph was taken. Looking back,...

Camera review: Me and my Lomography LCA 120 by Lorraine Healy

The LCA 120 camera is part of the LCA family of cameras, but I believe it is the only one which is a creation of the Lomography Society and not a reworking of the old U.S.S.R . Lomo cameras—which, as far as I know, were all 35mm. I spent a long time wondering whether to get this camera or not. At $430 it seemed very pricey (I still think it is) but I was really loving the images by other photographers which I saw posted on the Lomography site. A month after I bought it, having shot only maybe...

I am Robert Versteegen and this is why I shoot film

Today we’re very lucky to be able to sit down and pull on a few film photography threads with Robert Verteegen, Eindhoven, NL native and shooter of so-called ordinary things. One look at the images below and Robert’s website and you’ll see that they’re anything other than ordinary. Over to you, Robert.   Hi Robert, what’s this picture, then? RV: This is a reflection. It’s difficult to see what’s what, and that’s what I like about it. Actually this was from my second roll of film in medium format (120). I love to make complex compositions and don’t think...

Camera review: Me and my Ricoh GR1s Date by James Gifford-Mead

Here are a few thoughts on my recently purchased Ricoh GR1s Date – aka the GR1s, and also a few reasons why I bought it. I work as full time photographer during the week taking pictures for corporate companies and shooting events, so unfortunately photography was becoming more and more like work. I have a feeling this happens a lot to photographers who pay their bills with shooting photography! Anyway I thought the best way to get photography to be more fun and enjoyable was to venture back into the addictive world of shooting film. There is so much choice out...

A guide to developing your own E6 film – by Kikie Wilkins

Before I jump into the guide, allow me a few moments to tell you the story of how I began shooting and developing slide film. Many years ago, while working as an employee of a transport and delivery company, I came into possession of a large quantity of Kodak EKTACHROME slide film. One of the transportation contracts that my company held was with a medical facility here in Arizona. In the lab area that we picked up at, I noticed a large quantity of slide film stored in a freezer. There were at least three different kinds of slide...

I am Sarah Kudirka and this is why I shoot film…only to paint over it

As you’ll have probably guessed from the slightly altered headline above, this isn’t going to be your run-of-the-mill EMULSIVE interview. You see, today’s interviewee isn’t really a film photographer – well, she IS but…you’ll see. Enough of the clickbait introduction and over to you, Sarah!     Hi Sarah, what’s this picture, then? SK: This shows what I am working on right now in my studio. It is a wall full of instant Polaroid prints, that I have painted (or will paint) over. It includes 84 shots I took in Berlin pasted up on the wall in the order...

Blue hour with Kodak Ektar 100 – by Toni Skokovic

I’ve started getting into film photography more seriously over the past 18 months; and testing different films has been a huge part of discovering the right technology and technique. My goal has been to evaluate different looks and determine if film opens additional creative opportunities. This is how I found Kodak Ektar. Much has been written about this film but for me, I find Kodak Ektar at its most unique under unusual lighting conditions and when exposed in a somewhat unconventional fashion. My first roll was a disaster. I ended up shooting with my camera’s meter set to EI 400, so the roll...
