I got bit by the RA-4 reversal bug a few weeks back, diving deep into chemistry, filtration, processing, and rinsing (more on the rinsing a bit later). The RA-4 development process is used to produce a color print on (you guessed it) color paper in the darkroom. In this article, I cover my RA-4 reversal […]
To help beat the boredom, I reached out to the film photography community and asked what kinds of photography projects they’d be doing while stuck at home/physically distancing over the next…
Recently, a number of film companies have issued warnings about new and enhanced scanning technology (CT scanners). As I was travelling through Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport recently, I thought I would sacrifice a roll of film to see what the damage looks like.
Christmas has come early for LEGO fans and film photographers alike in the form of the LEGO Nikon F3 created by Ethan Brossard – aka LegoDog0126. The Nikon F3 needs no introduction but Ethan and his creation most certainly do. For that, it’s over to him. ~ EM This is a LEGO model of the […]
To answer this question, I researched the foundations of film and digital photography; and which factors can influence the style of the results for my bachelor thesis.
Wet plate collodion doesn’t spring to mind as either the most practical or in fact, legal approach to creating passport photographs but that didn’t stop EMULSIVE interviewee #196 Markus Hofstaetter from giving it a shot.

Welcome to the second appendix to the Technical Field Guide for the Discerning Analog Photographer.
I originally wrote the full “Technical Field Guide for the Discerning Analog Photographer” as a quick reference for technical photographers in the field.
Ok, so as photography how-to’s go, this one is as simple as they come.
For about a year and a half, every time I opened my fridge I saw my last remaining 10 exposure pack of Fuji FP 100C instant film, and every time I opened said fridge I was reluctant to take it
And this is where my journey of home developing begins! After a couple of disappointments – in rapid succession – of the work of some photo labs, it was time to take full responsibility for all the loosely cut last
If you are old enough, you will remember a time when expired film was like kryptonite to a photographer.
This whole project started when I realized I had been blindly allegiant to certain black and white films for a number of years without any particular rhyme or reason.
In the summer of 2017 I decided that I needed a new pinhole camera.
One of my favorite things about shooting film is that I can make multiple exposures, which are photographs that contain 2 or more images on the same frame.
Welcome back to this guide on building your own JOBO-style automatic film processor.
I have always wanted a Jobo film processor.
Welcome to the third instalment of my Long Exposure Test series. In this part, I am looking at 5 readily available colour negative films and how adjustment of longer exposure times effects the outcomes.
Exposure latitude is defined by the satisfactory range between the shadow and highlights at which details can still be visible and color reversal (slide) films are known to have exposure latitudes that are much narrower than black and white, or
I love the colors of Fuji Velvia, but I don’t like the magenta color cast that can result during daylight shooting.
