Camera review: me and my Olympus 35 SP by Matt Parry

The Olympus 35 SP holds a SPecial and somewhat privileged status in my pretty modest camera collection. For around seven months it has been almost the only 35mm camera I have used (the main exception is the point and shoot, Nikon L35AF). The 35 SP really has an immense amount going for it and it more than pulls its weight in the world of rangefinders, let alone fixed lens rangefinders. It’s an overused phrase but the SP really is a hell of a lot of bang for your buck.     The Olympus 35 SP – my story I came...

I am Kay Adams and this is why I shoot film

Even if you have a short memory, you’ll remember today’s interviewee from their guest post on experimental development with mouthwash, orange juice and a whole bunch of other household goods; and the recently published thought piece on perfection. Ladies and gentlemen, it’s a pleasure to welcome Kay Adams into the EMULSIVE interview fold. Over to you, Kay…     Hi Kay, what’s this picture, then? KA: I guess there is no picture that describes my way as a photographer better than this one. It started with an OK portrait I shot a couple of years ago. I developed and printed it,...

Welcome to the winner announcement for the first #TMAXParty for 2017! We received a total of 73 votes over the course of the voting period and whilst the winner walked away with 25% of the votes, second and third place were separated by only six percent and we had a tie for third place.

Still, this is about March 2017, so let’s crack on with the runner’s up and winner.     2nd place...

Camera review: Me and My Yashica-D (80mm f/3.5) TLR by Ed Worthington

Hi everybody, my name is Ed Worthington, although I go by my pseudonym of “The 6 Million P Man” when it comes to anything photographic*. I’ve been shooting film for a little over three years now and sharing the images on my blog for around two of those. At first it was something to just try out when I used my grandfather’s Canon AE-1 and then quickly developing into a passion, or mild obsession if you prefer, to the point where I own probably far too many cameras and have garnered a reputation among people I know as the guy...

An introduction to: Black and white darkroom printing – by Marta Beltowska

Black and white printing is (obviously) fun, and easy to get into. I hope this introduction will help those that haven’t yet taken the step, to search out their nearest darkroom and get into printing. I would like to point out that this is a generalised introduction – since I first learnt how to print in a black and white darkroom 10 years ago in high school, I’ve found that darkrooms can differ ever so slightly depending on who runs it. Whether you join a shared darkroom or decide to build your own – always follow the procedure and rules...

Lens love: shooting the Kodak Aero Ektar 7″ f/2.5 aka how I found my Kodak Aero Ektar, or how it found me by Isabel Curdes

Up until the day I was able to call it “mine” I had never heard about the Burnett-Combo or David Burnett and I was completely unaware of the cult status of Kodak’s Aero Ektar lens. So why did I buy it? The answer is simply impulse and intuition. I think it makes sense to pause there for a moment and travel back in time to the beginning of 2016…cue the squiggly lines.     Moved by movements At the beginning of 2016 I was experimenting with camera movements on a Hasselblad Flexbody. It was a revelation, as it helped me...

A few weeks ago, the lovely folks over at Billingham got in touch to ask if I wanted to review one of their new bags, the Hadley One, the newest – and most advanced, in my opinionmember of the Hadley family, which was first introduced nearly 30 years ago in 1988.

I am Marta Beltowska and this is why I shoot film

Today we’re grabbing some time with Marta Beltowska, currently based in London, UK. She’s got some amazing work to share and there’s much more on the way, thanks to a bit of light prodding from yours truly.  Enough cryptic lead-ins to future articles, it’s over to you, Marta,     Hi Marta, what’s this picture, then? MB: This image is from a personal series I did in 2013, simplifying family history and events brought on by my father’s ill health through staged photographs. It was shot on slide film (Fuji Provia 100F), and it was the first proper project I had done on medium format, or my first mature project on film.  I had shot on film before that, but with this series, film became cemented in me like a proper part of my practice. When I compare it with other projects I’ve done on film, this stands out as the most thought-through. Before starting this series I had just had my “intro to medium format” at university, and was amazed at slide film. It was like a tiny color photograph as soon as you developed the film!     Ok, so who are you? (the short version, please) MB: I’m a photographer currently based in London, England. I work to create, so my day job is as a technician at an arts university.  This is really hard to answer, because I could easily condense myself...

Camera review: me and my Holga 120n by Sandeep Sumal

Well well well, a review on my thoughts about using a Holga, specifically the Holga 120N. I should also mention, this camera is the glow-in-the-dark version which is very useful, said no one ever. I do wonder when handling it, is the phosphorescent paint slowly killing me? I can already feel various conflicting emotions welling up inside me as I ponder my thoughts and consider what to write.     Technical overview First the technical bit. Its plastic, the lens is plastic, its assembled nicely but not with any sort of precision engineering. It has a lever to fire the shutter...
