How to organize a photowalk: A guide by Anil Mistry

How to organize a photowalk: A guide by Anil Mistry

I love the social aspect of photography. Meeting other photographers and discovering the way they approach their passion has always been an enjoyable part of mine, so a few years ago I started to arrange little photowalks – mainly with groups of close friends. Some of these friends started to […]

Ricoh GR1s vs Ricoh R1s: Is "premium" really worth the money?

Ricoh GR1s vs Ricoh R1s: Is “premium” really worth the money?

Here’s a question you’ve probably asked yourself before: “Is it really worth paying for a premium compact 35mm camera when a lesser-known, lower spec’d camera can produce a comparable result?” To answer it, I decided to see if my “premium” Ricoh GR1s and not-so-premium Ricoh R1s were really as different […]

Greta Thunberg: capturing the voice of the 21st century using 150-year-old wet plate photography

Greta Thunberg: capturing the voice of the 21st century using 150-year-old wet plate photography

The call came in on the afternoon of Monday 7th October. Shane Balkowitsch would have little under 24 hours to plan a 15-minute wet plate photoshoot with Greta Thunberg at Standing Rock.

Making colour prints in the darkroom: welcome to RA-4 printing

If you’re reading this guide, you’re probably new to RA-4 colour printing. Don’t worry, until recently, so was I. Over the past few months, I have spent a lot of time finding information about and practically learning the process. Since what I needed was scattered around the internet in small […]

Add to Queue: interviewing Ben Horne (No.2)

I first interviewed Ben for EMULSIVE in 2016. He was, perhaps predictably, an absolute pleasure to work with and I really enjoyed the result, as did many others. The intention at the time was that the interview would be the first in a series of longer pieces where I talk […]

Have a break… have a Kit Kat… film camera…

And finally for your end of week pleasure… after yesterday’s news, let’s file this one under “I need to book a flight to Thailand”. Yes, Thailand’s 11,000+ 7-11’s began selling promotional Kit Kat film cameras earlier this week. Single use, disposable cameras loaded with what appears to be a roll […]

Some more of my favourite film photographers

Last year I published a short list of analogue photographers who were valuable (at least to me) in some way; ones who offer either inspiration or education. The response to this was very wholesome, and people in the comments seemed to enjoy both the concept of the list and my […]

5 Frames… With KosmoFoto Mono 100 (EI 100 / 35mm format / Leica M4)

I discovered this location – Dakota Crescent – whilst riding to my usual skate spots. It is one of Singapore’s oldest estates built in circa 1958. That is even before the independence of Singapore. The name itself is derived from Douglas DC-3 “Dakota” aircraft. The designs of these flats were […]
