On Valentine’s Day 2018, I stopped by my school’s photo lab on a whim and was unexpectedly treated to blindly pick from a grab bag of various films.
This film, FOQUS A125, is made by an enthusiast in Russia, and is hard to obtain without Russian connections (Russians buy it from the man himself on a forum full of untranslatable idioms).
Just out of the blue, my dear friend Edward, a stage magician, called me up to ask if I could cover his performance. Without hesitation, I said yes.
I loved Kodachrome! It was a wonderful film and untold rolls of it went through my cameras in the 1980s and 1990s.
Just by chance, I saw a Facebook post about Sherry Christensen’s Frugal Film Project in late January. A couple of messages later, I was in.
The Munda Bidi Trail is a wonderful thousand-kilometre dirt bicycle ride between Perth and Albany in Western Australia.
I started down the Albany at the south-west tip of Australia and spent nine days meandering north.
I shoot a lot of street photography, most of which is in Japan where I live. Grain has never been my thing.
I have owned my Olympus Trip for several decades but have never taken it seriously, until lately.
I first experimented with infrared film back in the late 1970’s, really enjoyed the color shifts using various filters, it gives you a sense of painting with film, having control over the exposure and light as all exposures are
I have been photographing with film for many years, and also doing macro photography with digital cameras.
Rollei Retro 80S is not a new kid on the block anymore, it’s been around since mid-2000s and plenty has been written about its most prominent characteristics: extended red sensitivity, high resolution and contrast – all signs of its
I have always found the look of black and white infrared photographs intriguing and really wanted to try it myself.
On a hot summer day in 2018, I made my way to the area around City Hall in Buffalo, New York, USA. This is one of my favorite places to shoot film, particularly for architectural images.
Reading EMULSIVE reminded me that I’d shot my first roll of film in 1961, when, as a young boy, I’d bought a very old Kodak box camera from a village jumble sale with my pocket money.
You’ll no doubt know two things about Kosmo Mono film; first is the packaging and branding are great. Inspired by the artwork of Soviet era propaganda, it features blocky, simple designs of space rockets and jet planes.
I first bought this film to try Cinestill out as a brand. I was really curious about the company because of the concept of using movie stock film to create still photographs.
Surprising as this may be but ILFORD XP2 SUPER is currently my favourite* general-purpose black & white film.
These five frames are very special to me because are part of the very first black and white roll that I developed for myself.
I started “5 Frames With…” with Hamish over at 35mmc.
Fujicolor cross processes as a wonderful black & white film with great tonality and nice grain.
