Changing Gear is a new series here on EMULSIVE where photographers are invited to talk about equipment or events that have changed the way they approach the world through their lens.
It all started with some idle musings between a few photographers. Some were expressing a bit of disdain for the “selfie generation”, which triggered a chain of thought that lead me to a fusion of pop-art and selfies.
In July of 2018, I made the switch from 100% digital to 100% film. I started out shooting manual SLRs (Nikon F3 and Nikon FE2) and was pleased with those cameras.

I used Fuji Natura 1600 for the first time in early December of 2018 during a three-day trip to Liverpool and its metropolitan area.
“Oh sure, it may not look like much, but it’s going to be my new photo darkroom.”
I said this, with a touch of nostalgia, a bit of a whim, and the driving force of practicality around the return
I took a short holiday to rest my weary soul and as fate would have it, bumped into Hamish in a pub in London.
Recently, my friend Lorraine Healy sent me Kosmo Foto’s article on some rather cool film packaging produced in Russia by SREDA (СРЕДА) Film Lab.
The recent the opening of the SilvergrainClassics Studio/Lab in Germany gave Marwan El-Mozayen, editor-in-chief of PhotoKlassik International and co-owner of the lab the chance to organize an impressive meeting of the minds.

It all began in the summer of 2018 when I made a trip to the United States.

5 Frames… With Kodak Panchromatic Sound Recording Film 2374 (EI 100 / 35mm format / Lomo LC-A) – by Andrea Taurisano
My choice fell on Kodak Panchromatic Sound Recording Film 2374, a film I had never heard of until I saw a few dusty rolls in a photo store in Ukraine.
These 5 frames are from a roll of ILFORD HP5 PLUS I shot on my Nikon FE and 24mm f/2.8D lens while visiting Toronto earlier this year. It had been raining for two full days.
