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 […]

5 Frames… Of a weekend in NYC on ILFORD Delta 3200 Professional (EI 3200 / 35mm format / Nikon FM2 + Nikon Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 AF-D)

This trip to New York City was my first time there in about 15 years. I have always admired several photographers who were known for capturing New York street photography. Some of my favorites are Joel Meyerowitz, Vivian Maier, Jill Freeman, Gordon Parks, and Saul Leiter. My work isn’t anywhere close to their incredible street […]

5 Frames… Of ILFORD FP4 PLUS with my new Contax clone (35mm format / EI 100 / Kiev-4a + Jupiter 8M 50mm f/2) – by John Tarrant

I am a long-term Leica user, but have always admired the Contax aesthetic and Contax users were usually as enthusiastic about the Zeiss product as Leica users were about the Leitz products. So I recently took the opportunity to acquire fairly elderly Kiev-4a camera and prepared to enjoy the Contax experience. The Kiev-4a is sometimes […]

5 Frames… Around Blois on LomoChrome Purple XR 100-400 (35mm format / EI 200 / Yashica FX – 3 + Yashica Lens ML 50mm f/2) – by Steven Munday

To Describe the Town of Blois, I would begin with the picturesque gardens, the venerable buildings woven together with cobbled streets. Cemented in the history of France, Blois is a stunning destination for anyone with a love for culture, situated in the centre de Loire region and 2 hours south of Paris. Now, I had […]

5 Frames… Over 3 years on Kodak Portra 400, starting in New Orleans and finishing at Venice Beach (35mm format / EI 400 / Pentax Spotmatic + Super Takumar 50mm f/1.4)

Film is time travel. By the time I got this roll of Kodak Portra 400 developed and scanned, it had been sitting in my Pentax Spotmatic for three years, waiting to be developed. I shot the first half of the roll while it was still fresh, according to the date on the box, and the […]
