This article covers everything you need to understand when it comes to printing your zine and owning the selection process for paper, binding, finishing and preparing your file(s) for print
There is a “rule” for shooting expired film. This “rule” states that when shooting expired film, one should add one stop of exposure per decade it has been expired. The rule is wrong and by blindly following it, you are doing yourself, your film and your subjects a disservice. No-one knows where the rule came […]
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 invite other friends and so […]
Traditional photographic processes require forethought, preparation and involvement on the part of the photographer. To demonstrate this, I made crumpets from scratch and then made cyanotypes using them. Because, obviously.
In this article, I will be guiding you through the construction of a simple pinhole camera out of a cardboard box, which uses photographic paper to make photographs.
Film can be daunting for some, but I find it is worth the investment of time and money, as long as you understand exactly what your expectations are from the medium.
It’s time to simplify and demystify the dark art of connecting legacy film scanners and other hardware to modern computers.

This is a follow up to my original article on the Kodak Instamatic 500 and my passion for the (rather underloved) 126 Instamatic format. There are loads of great “square format” point and shoot cameras out there, if only
Some of my classic cameras remind me of the fascinating history of photography. Recently I wanted to see if I could make instant prints with my Speed Graphic press camera.
I want to spread the idea that a photographic enlarger is fundamentally a very simple thing.
The cost of manual-focus 35mm equipment increases to rise and Nikon gear is leading the pack.
Using reversal film for flash photography is not the most obvious choice but there are a few characteristics which make using Kodak’s new Ektachrome E100 for flash photography very interesting.
In this article, I’ll be showing you how to very simply modify your Fuji medium format rangefinder to shoot wide-format 35mm film (aka make your own TEXPan).
When we talk about instant film, Fujifilm and Polaroid Originals are the only mature solutions available at this time. One of the characteristics of these cameras is that we can choose only one format for one camera.
In this article, I will go over the steps you need to take and the decisions you need to make to enter the wonderful world of film 35mm photography.
I recommend starting with the 35mm format as the cameras
The new year is upon us but it needn’t be filled with broken resolutions, especially if you’ve committed yourself to create a new photography website (or plan on refreshing one you already have).
I’ve been stuck in my house filling orders for my Kickstarter campaign for the CAMERADACTYL 4×5 Field Camera, mostly just babysitting printers, changing filaments and adjusting extruders every few hours.
Back in July, I walked you through the initial build for my Agipinfold, an Agifold 6×6 camera converted to pinhole. It’s time for part two.
