In autumn 1993 it was time again. The annual Blues Night in the neighboring town of Idar-Oberstein was coming up. This time I also wanted to take pictures there. My first time in a dark hall with a few spotlights on stage. What do I need? Flash was already categorically ruled out for me. I […]

Way back in 1963, in the early years of my photojournalism career, a German friend of mine who was about to emigrate to the US persuaded me to join him on a visit to his homeland in early February. ‘It’s the season of Der Fasching,’ he explained excitedly. ‘Everyone dresses up, there are big street […]

5 Frames… Of 15 year expired Agfa Scala 200 on a King Regula Cita III (35mm Format / EI 200 / Tessar f/2.8 lens) – by Y. Savoy

After twenty years hiatus from film photography, I sold all my digital gear and got back to my roots, and what better film than two fifteen-year-old expired rolls of Agfa Scala, to play with! The shots were taken in different lighting conditions most in natural light conditions or just normal room tungsten lights, I find […]

5 Frames… Of surreal colour with Lomography Lomochrome Purple XR 100-400 (35mm Format / EI 160 / Nikon F5 + Nikkor 50mm 1.4 G Af-S) – by Phil Bateman

When I first bought a 5 pack of Lomography’s Lomochrome Purple XR 100-400 I wondered if the novelty might wear off after a roll or two and I fully expected to resell the rest. After a couple of rolls though, I realised there was something more to it than novelty and I couldn’t get enough. […]

5 Frames… Of Icelandic industrial edge on Fuji Pro 400H and a Mamiya 645 Pro (120 Format / EI 400 / Mamiya Sekor-C 80 mm f/2.8) – by Bram van der Horst

In between covid lockdowns, my girlfriend and I had the chance to visit Iceland. We went lightweight and camped everywhere. Lightweight except that I had brought my digital Pentax SLR in conjunction with two film bodies: the Mamiya C220 6×6 format TLR and my Mamiya 645 Pro 6×4.5 format SLR. Although I regretted the extra […]

5 Frames… At Sharjah’s Fossil Rock on ILFORD HP5 PLUS and a Leica M4 (35mm Format / EI 100 / Voigtlander Color-Skopar 35mm f/2.5 P II) – by Simón Ducos

I have been using a 50mm lens almost exclusively for around two years, and I recently wanted to switch it up. The 35mm focal length has been on my radar for a few months, so when a good price for the Voigtlander Color-Skopar 35mm f/2.5 PII appeared online it caught my attention. Within the week […]

I’m from Seattle, WA, US yet I have been overseas for the last 13 years, working, exploring, and experiencing what you see in travel vlogs. I’m now in Hai Phong, Vietnam, around 2 hours to the west of Hanoi on the coast near Ha Long Bay. I arrived from Birmingham, UK with previous stops in […]

With winter bearing down upon us, my family and I visited the Roger Williams Park Botanical Center in Providence, RI USA for a little weather respite. My family brought sketch pads and watercolor paints; I brought a roll of Fuji Velvia 50, a Nikon FM2, a Nikon 105mm f/2.8 AI-s Micro-Nikkor macro lens, and a […]

5 Sheets… Of Fujifilm Instax Square Monochrome on a Mamiya RB67 (EI 800 / Mamiya Sekor C 127mm f/3.8) – by Alex Furman

I’ve spent over a decade of my life living and breathing photography. Like many, I started with digital but quickly realized that I wanted a more physical process. I was, and still am, spending entirely too much time behind a computer. I’ve shot multiple formats, from 35mm to medium and even large format. And then, […]

5 Frames… Of Japanese waterfalls with Lomography Babylon Kino 13 (35mm / EI 12 / Nikon FE) – by Orrin Heath

Monochrome waterfalls. Inspired by how my results with Lomography Potsdam Kino 100 came out, I decided to try out Lomography Babylon Kino ISO 13 film. ISO 13?! I have never shot with anything that slow. However, I bought this film with the intention to use it for waterfall photography. The slow speed would require the […]

It’s the beginning of 2021 and COVID is still running full force. I am a freelance corporate photographer and COVID-19 has decimated my business. So this was a rare instance in which a client from a Chicago law firm called for some portraits of a few new attorneys. I hadn’t been to downtown Chicago since […]
