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.

Making a living as a photographer requires me to have professional digital equipment. Still, everyone around me knows about my passion for film.
In 2018, E-6 Processing is expensive. I shot this roll back in April and after shooting it, it sat in my freezer for 2 months, because I can’t afford to get too many rolls of E-6 processed at once.
I started this project a couple of months ago to document my wife’s passion for flowers and plants. Our small flat is just full of them. They are of different shapes and sizes.
This camera came out of left field to me. I have run the #halfframeclub for almost 2 years, but this camera never fit my ideal of what a half frame cameras should be.
We are brothers. Twins actually! Boy and Girl. We have a passion for analog photography and we love to experience film.
At the end of last year we had a chance to go one week to Madrid.
After listening to far too much of the FPP, I decided that bulk loading film is the way to go. So, I bought some single rolls to experiment with.
After a more than 20 year break from taking anything much more than ‘happy snaps’ photography has started to reemerge as a very important part of my life.
I swore I’d never shoot analogue again – digital is so much
I wrote a whole long blah-blah about this camera I made here.
In my normal photography I shoot color but when testing 4 x 5 cameras I prefer black and white because the colors can get in the way of what I’m looking for.
While I love my Schneider Xenar 135mm f/4.7
This was the first roll of Acros I ever shot. It came with the bikkuri case I ordered from Japan Camera Hunter. In honor of its discontinuation, I thought I should finally give it a shot.
In the beginning, there was film. My favorite emulsions for the decades starting in 1976, were slow speed Kodachrome (25 and 64) and Tri-X shot on a Canon F-1n.
When Cinestill reintroduced their BwXX 250 film stock, I was intrigued and bought a roll immediately. Like their other film stocks, BwXX 250 is movie film re-engineered for still cameras.
The tungsten aesthetic really is my thing. I love seeing it used for night outdoors shots; I’m convinced that even the most mundane things, shot at night, on tungsten film, automatically become statement shots…
I’ve always wanted to try black & white film. So these shots come from my very first B&W film. I had actually no idea about which film should I use.
Last summer I returned to Scotland for the second time in my life. I still keep the negatives of my first time (1985), some irregular Kodak Tri-X rolls but with some great images.
I live in North-East Lincolnshire in the UK and was raised in the coastal town of Cleethorpes, a once glorious Victorian seaside resort whose star has now largely faded.
I’ve have had a roll of Kodak EKTACHROME Infrared EIR in my fridge for a year or so now. For those of you that don’t know this is a colour Infrared slide film (E6 processing, #SayNoToXPRO).
The images in this series are abstracted Houston landscapes, shot on 35mm film.
It is said that landscapes should be shot with, at the very least, a medium-film camera.
