Earlier this year I started a new series of articles with Hamish over at 35mmc. I say “with” but in reality, he posted the idea with a call for submissions on Twitter and I strong armed my way into the whole thing in the spirit of collaboration.
Hamish didn’t seem to mind and there are (at the time of writing), nearly 70 5 Frames With articles in the wild. While 35mmc‘s articles focus more on the camera and lenses used, EMULSIVE focuses more on the film, exposure and process.
It’s been a fun series to do, so here’s my top ten list of 5 Frames With articles posted on EMULSIVE this year…
