5 Frames… Of in-focus shots with a Nikonos III on Arista.EDU Ultra 100 (120 Format / EI 200) – by Brian DuBois

Most of us that have been around film photography for a long time know the Nikon Nikonos underwater camera. It was always a bit of a mysterious camera, reserved for fantastic journeys into the great depths of the oceans. These days, Nikonos cameras seem to be more of a curiosity of the past.  Sadly, these were precision-engineered […]

Before the world stopped turning, I took a road-trip to the US Pacific Northwest with the dog while my wife and daughter visited the outlaws in the midwest. I got to go visit a bunch of nerdy places that my (at the time) four-year-old either could not go to, or would have been bored to […]

5 Frames… Of my own private Idaho on ILFORD HP5 PLUS (120 Format / EI 400 / Bronica SQA + Bronica Zenzanon-PS 150mm f/4) – by Ted Harmon

I began in photography shooting for The Arbiter, Boise State University’s student newspaper. My qualifications at the time?

5 Frames… Of a world seen differently, thanks to Lomochrome Purple (35mm Format / EI 100 / Nikon FE + Nikon Series E 50mm f/1.8) – by Mathieu Lamontagne-Cumiford

I am no photographer. Well, not in any meaningful sense of the word anyways. I have neither formal training nor professional experience in the practice. Yet despite this, film photography is now a passion, a mode of expression, and a way of seeing the world which I hold dear. Like many other amateurs (I use […]

On Christmas Eve I polished up my Vivitar Powershot Point and Shoot 35mm camera that I rescued from the recycle bin at work and loaded it up with a roll of Kodak ColorPlus 200. I wanted to do something experimental, and the ease of point and shoot cameras lends itself perfectly to experimental photography. I […]

5 Frames… Of Los Angeles on a quiet New Years’ Eve day 2020 (Kodak Ektar 100 / EI 100 / Contax G1 + Carl Zeiss 90mm f/2.8 Sonnar T*) – by Brenton Giesey

As a creative, making it to the end of 2020 felt like a literal Sysiphus myth — pushing a giant boulder uphill all year to stay creative, make money, stay healthy and not lose hope. It required a lot of patience, determination, and self-care. I made the move to LA in the midst of the […]

I have been hooked on photography ever since my father showed me how to use his basement darkroom when I was in my teens. I took my first ‘real’ camera — a Pentax Spotmatic — to Europe with me as a college student in the late 1960s. I used Kodachrome 25 and 64, bought and […]

My first adventure with ILFORD HP5 PLUS ISO 400 black and white film was exactly what I hoped for — this film is great. I’m relatively new (less than 6 months) to analogue photography, or indeed any photography, and this film is known as one of the best all-rounders with good reason. I shot this […]

I grabbed my Nikon F with a 35mm lens, loaded it with ILFORD Delta 100 Professional and headed for Minden Park, a location I’d been eyeing for such an occasion. There was a fairly overcast sky which would […]
