5 Frames… Of golden hour on a Balda Baldi 29 and Fomapan 100 Classic (120 format / EI 100 / Baldanar 80mm f/2.9 Triplet) – by Leon Blankenhorn

Where your comfort zone ends is where you discover something new and fun. Keeping that euphemism in mind, I decided against a slow and cozy morning one Sunday in this past August, and went to get my bike out of the shed instead. The lockdowns in recent history have blessed many of us with new […]

5 Frames… Of Eid-al-Fitr 2022 on Fuji Superia 1600 and a Pentax ME (35mm format / EI 1600 / SMC Pentax-M 28mm f/2.8) – by Yusuf Husain

This story begins on Eid, the last day of the holy month of Ramadan. Usually, on Eid, you give cash as gifts. But instead, a friend gave me an expired roll of Fuji Superia 1600. Context: Superia 1600 wasn’t necessarily a hard film to find when it was still produced but these days, it’s reached […]

5 Frames… Of “Sinostill” 800T a cheaper alternative to Cinestill 800T? (EI 800/35mm format/Nikon F3 + Micro-Nikkor 55mm f/2.8) – by Wenhong

Cinestill 800T is popular these days and many people use it to get unique-looking pictures. However, I am hesitant to use this film due to its high cost; 35mm Cinestill 800T sells for USD23 per roll in my local shops and is more expensive than Kodak Portra 800. A few months back when I shopped […]

5 Frames… Of street photography in Buenos Aires on the Mamiya RB67 (120 format / EI 100 / Kodak T-MAX 100) – by Simón Ducos

In the summer of 2019, I sold my trusty Olympus XA in order to buy my then-dream camera: the Mamiya RB67. Although these cameras are vastly different, the XA being ideal for travel and street photography while the RB is more for studio shoots and still-life, I was convinced that when the time came I […]

5 Frames… Of Cinestill 50D and a contemporary dancer aka, “Scatter in Four” (120 format / EI 50 / Hasselblad 503CX + Carl Zeiss Planar 80mm f/2.8) – by Abel M

They are the elements with which one afternoon we go out to try to capture the vibration that emotions produce during the dance movement. These five photographs are the first of a photographic project that seeks the relationship of the person with the movement. So the way I found to approach the objective of the […]

5 Frames… Around my Houston neighborhood on Adox CMS 20 II Pro (EI 20 / 35mm Format / Minolta X-700 + MD Rokkor 35mm f/2.8) – by Joseph Jacobs

Hi, my name is Joseph, and I am a recovering analog gear addict (a resounding “Hi Joseph” from the interwebs). Yes…back in 2017, at the beginning of my “analog journey”, I found myself obsessively buying all of the cheap film cameras that Etsy and eBay could offer. They simply looked cool (am I right here, […]

5 Frames… Of Polaroid Color SX-70 Film at the tiny Greek island of Anafi (ISO 160 / Polaroid SX-70 + 116mm f/8 lens) – by George Pavlopoulos

The journey to the island of Anafi takes me more than half a day from Athens, and returning every summer has become something more than a ritual: it’s a seal that marks one more time around the sun. The small Cycladic island doesn’t seem to belong in the digital era, and that’s probably why I […]

5 Frames… At Beers & Cameras Sacramento on expired Kodak Supra 400 (35mm / EI 25 / Leica M3 with 50mm f/2 Dual-Range Summicron)

Much to the joy of us Northern California film shooters, Beer & Cameras Sacramento recently reawakened after its long Covid slumber. To mark the occasion, I brought my Leica M3, the awesome 50mm f/2 Dual-Range Summicron, and an expired roll of Kodak Supra 400 to their meetup at a local brewery. Of course, the meetup […]

5 Frames… Making mistakes with a Graflex Speed Graphic and Arista Ortho 3.0 4×5 film – by Mark Rutledge

The pandemic lockdown probably spawned lots of new behaviors, routines and interests for many people out of sheer boredom. For me, it resurrected a love for the darkroom. I’m an old film guy having studied fine art film photography in college and used film; large format almost exclusively, in my commercial photography days but that […]
