Ladies and gentlemen, esteemed readers and all of you who have no idea what this website is, welcome to two years of EMULSIVE! Time really does fly when you’re having fun or in my case, burning film.

While I’m at it, I...

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...

Welcome to #SummerFilmParty 2017, celebrating the films we shoot when the sun is shining and the days are long

UPDATE: 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: 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 over and done with but there’s no time to rest on your laurels because the summer is here and that means it’s time for #SummerFilmParty 2017! For this celebration of film we decided that it...

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...

I am Phil Harrison and this is why I shoot film

Readers with even the shortest of memories will remember today’s interviewee from his guest review of FILM Ferrania’s FERRANIA P30® emulsion back in April.

Welcome to Film Photo Chat and Camera Detox

Welcome to two brand new film photography Facebook groups designed to create a space for long-form discussion between the EMULSIVE community, as well as fulfilling the idea of a trading platform, which was floated by members of the community in 2016. The two groups existing in addition to this website, and the EMULSIVE communities/presence on Twitter, Instagram, Reddit and a whole bunch of other places regular readers are most likely not familiar with (shame on you!)

I am Roger Harrison and this is why I shoot film

This has been a tough interview to put together. Tough because, as you’ll see below, it’s been an absolute nightmare picking which one of Roger Harrison’s beautiful Fuji Velvia 50 photographs to feature as the cover for this article. I hope I did him proud. Regular readers should remember Roger from his wonderful article discussing methods for effectively shooting Fuji Velvia 50 and other slide films. If you haven’t caught it yet, please do. The link will open in a new tab. Once you’re back here, scroll down and see what roger has to say for himself. Over to you,...
