Aside from the fact these photos were taken in the streets, they stray far from traditional street photography.
I have to start with saying of late my taste in colour film has been changing.
Back when I first got into medium format film photography via the gateway drug of folding bellows cameras, I was outbid at the last second for a Mamiya RB67 kit.
Fujifilm’s Fujicolor C200 is one of my favorite film stocks, it seems to love the bright Hawaiian sun, whether shooting at the beach or in the mountains.
I don’t shoot as much E6 film as I want to. Part of it is that I love the ease and practicality of B/W, and the other is I’m too cheap to send my rolls to a lab.
I don’t remember exactly when or where I first learned about the Kodak Aero Ektar lens, but I immediately knew that I had to have one! Mine is mounted an Army Air Corps Speed Graphic.
Finding Sieglinde Hefftner, my mother, seemed like a good way of trying out a recent addition to my evolving collection of film cameras.
From the early 1940s to the early 1950s my mother worked at Harry Glocke’s Photo Studio
Once every couple of months, I throw a film into my old Canon EOS5 (the Plastic Fantastic) and follow my daughter around for the day, shooting the stuff she gets up to.
I have been shooting Todd Schlemmer’s wonderful TerraPin OSKAR 6×9 pinhole camera since January.
About a month and a half ago I dove in head-first into the world of film photography with a rocket strapped to my back.
In 1956 I took my first photographs with an Agfa Box 6×9 camera from my mother and started to like and love taking photographs and making pictures.
I have been eager to use Lomochrome Purple for some time now. I love the work of Richard Mosse using infrared colour film, and as the psychedelic portraits taken by Elliott Landy.
My first film camera was the Nikon FE, I bought it off Kijiji (the Canadian version of Craigslist) with two lenses, flash and a funky vintage bag for $75.
A few months ago, I started with analog photography.
Pinhole photography has a unique charm expressing a kind of slow-down photography for me in this fast moving modern digital world.
I know EMULSIVE is running a Portraparty, but me being a grumpy old-aged pensioner, I don’t have any social media accounts (although I do read some).
Since discovering slide film recently, I simply can’t stop shooting it.
When I heard about the washi film project, I was immediately hooked on the idea.
For a while, I was intrigued with the ADOX story and curious about the films they make.
I’ve been shooting film most of my life, I’d say about 75% of my photos reside on Kodak Ektachrome slide film. When the digital age took over I got away from shooting film for a while.
