Looking back on the track for a little green bag (a little green box of film actually ☺).
When I heard about the washi film project, I was immediately hooked on the idea.
I have lusted after a Hasselblad XPan for a while, but the prices have gone through the roof to the point where I simply can't justify one.
I've have had a roll of Kodak EKTACHROME Infrared EIR in my fridge for a year or so now. For those of you that don’t know this is a colour Infrared slide film (E6 processing, #SayNoToXPRO).
Since discovering slide film recently, I simply can't stop shooting it.
I’m having a play around with some different film cameras at the moment and picked up an Olympus Superzoom 80G for $6.
The tungsten aesthetic really is my thing.
After a more than 20 year break from taking anything much more than 'happy snaps' photography has started to reemerge as a very important part of my life. I swore I'd never shoot analogue again - digital is so much
“That man is richest whose pleasures are cheapest.” ~ Henry David Thoreau Making a living as a photographer requires me to have professional digital equipment. Still, everyone around me knows about my passion for film.
When Cinestill reintroduced their BwXX 250 film stock, I was intrigued and bought a roll immediately. Like their other film stocks, BwXX 250 is movie film re-engineered for still cameras.
In my normal photography I shoot color but when testing 4 x 5 cameras I prefer black and white because the colors can get in the way of what I’m looking for. While I love my Schneider Xenar 135mm f/4.7
The pictures that are presented here today were taken during a workshop about analog photography in July 2017.
Some time ago I read about a workshop dedicated to instructing participants in building their own pinhole camera and venturing into the field to record some images. Somehow this idea resonated with me.
Once every couple of months, I throw a film into my old Canon EOS5 (the Plastic Fantastic) and follow my daughter around for the day, shooting the stuff she gets up to.
In 2018, E-6 Processing is expensive. I shot this roll back in April and after shooting it, it sat in my freezer for 2 months, because I can't afford to get too many rolls of E-6 processed at once.
When I started my path of analog photography somewhere in 2012, my first film stocks were widely available Fujifilm consumer grade films - mostly Fujifilm Superia 200 and Fujicolor C200.
A few months ago, I started with analog photography.
I've been shooting film most of my life, I'd say about 75% of my photos reside on Kodak Ektachrome slide film. When the digital age took over I got away from shooting film for a while.
