I wrote a whole long blah-blah about this camera I made here.
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
This was the first roll of Acros I ever shot. It came with the bikkuri case I ordered from Japan Camera Hunter. In honor of its discontinuation, I thought I should finally give it a shot.
In the beginning, there was film. My favorite emulsions for the decades starting in 1976, were slow speed Kodachrome (25 and 64) and Tri-X shot on a Canon F-1n.
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.
The tungsten aesthetic really is my thing.
I've always wanted to try black & white film. So these shots come from my very first B&W film. I had actually no idea about which film should I use.
Last summer I returned to Scotland for the second time in my life. I still keep the negatives of my first time (1985), some irregular Kodak Tri-X rolls but with some great images.
I live in North-East Lincolnshire in the UK and was raised in the coastal town of Cleethorpes, a once glorious Victorian seaside resort whose star has now largely faded.
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).
The images in this series are abstracted Houston landscapes, shot on 35mm film.
It is said that landscapes should be shot with, at the very least, a medium-film camera.
I was recently reading Daphne Schnitzer’s interview and one of the many materials she uses is Harman Direct Positive Paper (DPP).
I'm a latecomer to film photography, but have been working hard to catch up.
At first, I didn't get the hype but I really respect Dan Ko's opinion when he said he would buy any Konica Waiwai at the silliest price he could find.
On August 21, 2017, thousands of people converged on Alliance, Nebraska, as one of the prime Solar Eclipse viewing locations in North America.
Up until recently I wasn’t one for instant photography at all, I’d tried it with an Instax but that had been for a specific project that had petered out and never really gone anywhere.
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.
It must be 30 years since I’ve used ILFORD FP4 PLUS, of course, it was plain FP4 in those days (I stopped using it before the PLUS arrived in 1990).
