I am Don Lupo and this is why I shoot film

Today’s interviewee doesn’t always share much of his own work on Twitter but take a peek on Instagram or his website and it’s a totally different story. I’m so happy to be able to bring you the words and pictures of Mr Don Lupo. Over to you, Don!     Hi Don, what’s this picture, then? DL: This is my father, posing with the first camera he ever gave me: a Pentax Spotmatic. It was very important to me that I make a portrait of him with it. This image was made with another camera he gave me: a Yashica...

  UPDATE 02: 2017-07-18 - June's Shortlist is here The shortlist for June 2017 has been released. Please vote for your favorite using the form at the foot of the page. UPDATE 02: 2017-06-14 - New submission category added Pointed out by Twitter’s @kimmiechem2, it seems there’s a need for a “Funky AF” category (not auto-focus). We’re rolling it into the current “Abstract” category. UPDATE 01: 2017-06-01 - New film / media types added Given recent discussions on social media, it made sense to update the film type list to also include paper negatives and plates!   #NEOPANtastic 2017 is...

My Return to Film: Antonio Lastoria

…or described another way, “There and back again – almost”. When I started out in photography the closest thing I encountered to digital photography was the Polaroid. This was the time when film and paper ruled as the photographic medium. I began using Kodak Instamatics and it wasn’t until my late twenties that I started to seriously use photography in my creative life. My journey with film photography was a progression from 35mm to medium format until I settled on the 4×5 format for the next twenty years. It was here I found a kinship to the way I...

My return to film: Jake Bryant

I feel lucky to have grown up with film being my only option to create a photograph. It wasn’t until I travelled through India in 1992, that the world through a viewfinder opened up to me. I was suddenly bombarded with a visual spectacular, the memories of snapping away across that country, made a huge impact on my photographic approach. I used a Pentax P30. When I returned to England, I started to experiment with 1600 ASA film, doing stage photos in London. I loved the soft grain, but it was only a hobby, nothing more. I printed at...
