In writing my first 5 Frames With… for EMULSIVE I wanted to try and cover something different, looking through my folders of film scans there was something that stood out like a sore thumb.
After acquiring a Fujifilm GW690II and having so much fun with it, I felt I could use a wider angle for landscapes, so I set out looking for the GSW version, which sports a 65mm f/5.6 lens as opposed to the 90mm f/3.5 lens on the GW series. I found a GSW first series model […]
Iceland is a photographer’s fairy tale island. It’s almost impossible to take a bad picture in the land of ice and fire.
I shot the Area 51 Raid 2019 on a Pentax 67 using Portra 160, and it was (almost) the perfect camera for the job.
I had a roll of Fujifilm Velvia 100 with an expiry date of 2012 sitting in my fridge for quite a while and thinking that the film (and me for that matter) was not getting any younger, I decided to load it in my trusty Nikon F4 for some positive film fun times! This was not the first time I have shot using Velvia […]
I bought this Hasselblad 500C/M a little over 2 years ago now. It was an eBay buy and back then I was a digital shooter. I always lusted after…
Earlier in 2019, I ordered the mixed-film-pack from Silbersalz, containing one roll of each of the four Kodak VISION3 motion picture film varieties.
This was my third attempt at finding this waterfall not so far from where I live. I knew I wanted to bring my Nikon FG with the 50mm f/1.8 Series E lens, but wasn’t settled on the film yet. I decided on the roll of Lomography Potsdam Kino 100 that I got over the holiday […]
Since subscribing to Lomography’s newsletter, I came across Lomography F2/400 in 120. Research revealed this film to be expired Ferrania’s Solaris FG 400. The five images presented here are from an October 2018 trip to Italy (Milan/Bologna), where the colors can be somewhat muted, due to the overcast light and shorter days. The film itself […]
Earlier in 2019, I built a shoebox pinhole camera, and had a blast using it. But I wanted something a bit more reliable in its outcomes, so I went online and ordered a handmade pinhole from Poland. The Vermeer 6×6 Pinhole Camera came with a 34mm focal length, and a 2mm pinhole that results in […]
First of all, I’m not a great master photographer, it’s just a lot of fun and has been for over 30 years, with a break of several years and a digital phase in between. My motto is WISIWYG, What I See Is What You Get. On a beautiful sunny morning in late November 2019, I […]
Inspired by an ILFORD Photo November Camera Challenge on Twitter, I set out with my Reality So Subtle 6X6F. Three goals in mind: Work with my RSS using a contrast filter (the “F” means a filter can be attached)Satisfy the Story part of the ChallengeGet started on “My Inner Monet” So more about the Challenge. […]
My father was a hobby photographer and had a beautiful collection of Contax equipment. As I progressed in my work, he started generously handing down his collection to me for my desired needs. The first item he passed down to me was this Contax 159 MM, a camera that has a reputation for failure some […]
In May of 2019, my partner and I embarked on a 2000-mile road trip to Joshua Tree, the Grand Canyon, Zion and Death Valley National Parks. It was a wonderful experience and the perfect opportunity to slow down with film. Shooting film in nature, especially 6×9 120 format, gives us more time to take in […]
Having been into film photography for a little over a year, I saw visiting my sister in Morocco as the perfect opportunity to take some pictures in a different environment from the rainy streets of Leeds. This particular roll was shot in Casablanca and Rabat (there’s even a picture of my Dad on the train […]
On good days, the deserts of West Texas seem to tolerate human presence. The bad days bring flash floods and lightning storms that would faze even Zeus. I often travel to the region for work, regardless of what day it is, and when I do I make sure to bring my Olympus and a backpack […]
6 months without getting the film camera out was finally over – between work, study and small children, my hobbies had taken a back seat.
I grew up in an area that used to be completely farmland about 100 years ago. Some of the smaller family-owned farms are still in operation, but almost all of the original landowners decided a long time ago that the money from selling the land would be more than the money they’d be paid by […]
I go to visit my family in Argentina once a year, and ever since I got into film photography I have been returning from these trips with my carry-on filled with their old and unwanted cameras, flashes, and meters. This year, my aunt (who was an avid film photographer) found a bag of expired film […]
I always loved the original Agfa Scala 200X black and white slide film when it was available back in the late ‘90s. So I was thrilled when…
