On the 24th of May, 2017, I knew I had exactly one month before I leave the city of Istanbul for good.
I realize after deciding to contribute to EM and Hamish's #5FramesWith… series that I made things especially difficult for myself by immediately gravitating towards medium format cameras and 120 film - thereby limiting myself to a maximum of 16 exposures
My favourite colour negative film is Fuji Reala 100 which was discontinued quite a few years ago (thanks a lot Fuji).
With the exception of an Olympus Trip, I sold all of my 35mm camera equipment at the beginning of 2017. This was a decision I have regretted since.
I have a friend who is a ‘proper’ photographer.
Earlier this year I started a new series of articles with Hamish over at 35mmc.
When in doubt, reach for ILFORD HP5 PLUS. This has been my film photography rule the last little while.
When I returned to film a couple of years ago I shot black and white films and had them professionally processed.
EMULSIVE: a quick editor's note. This isn't Fuji Velvia 50 (RVP 50), it's the original Velvia (RVP), which was discontinued in 2005, reformulated and released in 2007.
"High ISO color negative films are rare and expensive, period." That's what I saved in my mind for years, and then used to skip the wish to shoot that gold dust - except for special events like the Berlin Light
I love to shoot instant film. I love the old peel-apart film, I love Polaroid and I also love Fuji INSTAX.
I mentioned to EM that my Kosmo film had just arrived and he demanded a 5 Frames With… pronto! So here we are.
I’ve always had a bit of a love-hate relationship with Kodak Ektar 100. I love the sharpness, and the colors are awesome when they work, but for whatever reason, I have trouble with the conversions.
Over the past couple of summers I've been experimenting a bit with infrared photography. I've always been intrigued by the alienating look that infrared images can give you.
The moment I received my Silberra film, I immediately popped the PAN100 in my Canon FTb and paired it with a 58mm f/1.2 lens.
In preparation for #BIFScale17, I picked up 5 rolls of Ultrafine Red Dragon 100.
