Lens review: the 7artisans 35mm f/2 Leica M-mount lens – first production batch exclusive

UPDATE 01 2017-04-27: Added production specifications Standing on the shoulders of Hamish Gill’s early look at the pre-release prototype of the 7artisans 35mm f/2 Leica M-mount lens, I’m here to offer my thoughts on one of the very first copies to come off the production line.

The lens has gone through numerous builds, rebuilds and tweaks over the past 6+ months I’ve been in conversation with the Shenzhen-based...

Every single film stock still made today – Part 2: FILM Ferrania to Hillvale

Welcome to part two of this series, looking at all the fresh film stocks still being produced today. In part one I covered every film stock from A-E – technically everything from ADOX to Dubblefilm. With those 20 stocks out of the way, this article will be covering a total of 36 films from Ferrania to Hillvale – assuming that Fuji doesn’t discontinue more in between me writing this and publishing it. Fingers crossed, eh? As with part one, each film is sorted by vendor then film stock; and there’s a mass of film data included for each one....

Bag review: The Billingham Hadley One part two – one year on (plus competition winner!)

Welcome to the follow up to my first impressions of the Billingham Hadley One, published in April 2017. With nearly a year of daily use under my belt, this update goes into more practical detail on using the bag, what works and importantly, what doesn’t. Before getting into that, I should really finally announce the winner of the “Troll EM” competition kicked off in part one. The premise was simple: troll me about the bag and the best effort (decided by Dan K and I) wins the bag. Watching the entries in the comments section of part one was a blast,...

An introduction to Platinum/Palladium printing – by Scott Hays

If there was ever a form of printing that gives you that true artistic feel, Platinum/Palladium would be it. If you have access to a negative, the sun and a piece of glass that doesn’t block UV rays and running water; you are half-way to being able to create a Platinum/Palladium print. For the rest of the process, let’s just say money won’t hurt: it may not buy happiness but it can keep us in printing supplies forever. Platinum/Palladium Printing was patented in the mid-1870’s and has never gone away. It provides an image that is soft, multi-dimensional in appearance...

Featured project: Goodnight Sweetheart – A miscellany of morose middle aged misanthropic musings and mattresses – by Anil Mistry

The short version is that I’ve been working on Goodnight Sweetheart for three years. It’s a small photo book featuring photographs of dumped mattresses that I’ve found on my travels. I love a dumped mattress. Once buoyant and full of spring, they’re now tatty and waiting for the bin, musing on past glories… …just like me and people like me: men over 40. The A5 book features 52 pages of photography and words and has been printed as a limited edition run of 150 copies on 170 gsm recycled paper. It is available to purchase for £14 including postage anywhere...
