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. So, before I get stuck in, here’s what’s covered in...

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.

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...
