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 […]

5 Frames… Of Strasbourg on ILFORD Delta 400 Professional with the “wrong” developer (35mm format / EI 1600 / Rollei 35TE + Tessar f3.5/40mm) – by Olaf

I met up with my friend Erik in late November 2019 near the Christmas market in Strasbourg. However, the Christmas market was not our main destination, no, it was the city of Strasbourg itself. Strasbourg is a beautiful city that has a lot to offer besides its world-famous cathedral. I wanted to and did photograph […]

5 Frames… In Covington, Tennessee, with expired Kodak T400CN (35mm / EI 400 / Minolta X-370 + Minolta MD 50mm f/1.4) – by Jon Woodhams

“It’s a pretty little town, isn’t it?” the man in the pickup truck asked, nodding at the camera in my hand. He’d seen me shooting pictures and stopped to chat. I smiled and agreed with him — Covington is a pretty little town, particularly the quaint town square that wraps around the Tipton County Courthouse. […]

5 Frames… Of Dublin’s St Patrick’s Day on Adox Color Mission 200 (35mm Format / EI 200 / Leica M6 + Voigtlander 35mm f/2.5 Color Skopar) – by Valentine de Villemeur

When Adox photo released their new film Color Mission, I knew I had to test it out. I purchased two rolls and received them just in time for St. Patrick’s Day in Dublin! I arrived early to find a good spot because my goal was to have enough crowd around me to capture the people […]

5 Frames… Of panoramas in Grenoble on Kodak Panchromatic Separation Film 2238 (35mm Format / EI 12 / Horizon Perfekt + OF-28p 28mm f/2.8 MC lens) – by Alfonso Carpio Rovira

This past Easter I planned a trip to Grenoble, a good opportunity to take landscape shots of the French Alps. At the same time, I was been keen to try out an attractive low ISO film that I received in the last Secret Santa (thanks EM); a roll of Kodak Panchromatic Separation Film 2238, a panchromatic […]

5 Frames… Of visible and present grain on ILFORD HP5 PLUS + FX-37 (35mm format / EI 400 Nikon F2 + DE-1 + Nikon Nikkor 35mm f/2.8 AI) – by Emilio Romero

To begin with, it is always difficult to refer to a particular combination of camera, developer, and film that one is not used to using regularly, but I think for sure that this one is certainly worth taking a look at; the developer FX-37 in combination with ILFORD HP5 PLUS. Certainly, and as I imagine […]

5 Frames… At the farm on ILFORD HP5 PLUS and Voigtlander ULTRON SL II 40mm F/2 (35mm format / EI 400 / Nikon FM3A) – by Michael

I was recently in a farming community outside Columbia, Missouri, where my in-laws have a wonderful farm. It’s where my wife, my daughter, and I go to get away from the city and relax. My mother-in-law had just returned from a cattle auction the week before and she brought several new cows home with her. […]

5 Frames of my lockdown on Classic EZ 400 film, a Voigtländer Bessa-R and Nikon FM2 (Skopar 35mm f/2.5 and Voigtländer Ultron 40mm f/2 lenses)

Being on voluntary lockdown on COVID leads to boredom, but it also lead me to explore my vast collection of photography books which I began to draw inspiration from for a little project. I love portrait work especially informal and street portraits. I began this little project two years ago at the start of the […]
