I am Ioana Tăut and this is why I shoot film

I’m so pleased to be able to bring you the words and work of Ioana Tăut, set in the wonderful world of her instant photography. Over to you, Ioana!     Hi Ioana, what’s this picture, then? IT: I randomly refer to it as “Christmas over Göttingen“ because I took it on the 25th of December, while spending my first Christmas in Göttingen, by German customs. But maybe “Night over Göttingen“ would be better – I don’t know, I don’t normally call my photos anything. I loved this photo the moment I peeled it from its negative, mostly because of it’s...

Why shoot film part 2 – by Simon King

It has been a couple of months since my first post, on Why I Shoot Film, and I thought that now would be a great time to provide an update. A lot has happened since I got my first few rolls of film developed, including adopting a truly unique camera into my workflow, and settling on my ideal film. The Leica CL is the perfect starting point for film photography. With the Jupiter 8 attached I am not concerned about taking it in my bag every single day I go out to shoot; its weight is negligible. As such...

I am Ian Bartlett and this is why I shoot film

If you remember 2017’s Mamiya C220 TLR review, or spend any time at all with the wonderful film photography community on Twitter, then you’ll be more than familiar with today’s interviewee, Ian Bartlett. I’m looking forward to this! Over to you, Ian…     Hi Ian, what is this picture then? IB: This is a shot of Summerhill Force waterfall and, behind it, Gibson’s Cave in Teesdale, Northern England. This recess behind the falls is named after a 16th century outlaw who hid from his captors behind Bowlees Beck as it leaps over the top. I more or less stumbled...

Blind film review: Fuji Natura 1600, Kodak Portra 800 and Lomography Color Negative 800 (35mm)

At the end of 2017 I mentioned to Aislinn Chuahiock that I’d received some 35mm Kodak Portra 800 to test out and was planning on pitting it against Lomography’s Color Negative 800 in a side-by-side review. In her infinite wisdom, Aislinn suggested I make it a three-way shoot out by adding a roll of Fuji Natura 1600 to the mix. It’s not a film stock I’d had much luck at that point with but since I had a roll sitting in the freezer and was testing the other two I thought, why not? I received the (unlabelled) scans from the lab...

I am Rachel Brewster-Wright and this is why I shoot film

January 27th 2016. Let that date burn into your memory. The was the first time today’s interviewee and I first made email contact. A few days later and I asked her If she would be willing to do an interview and there began the chase. I’m not saying I’ve been waiting a long time for this, I’m saying I’ve been waiting a LONG TIME FOR THIS. Perfunctory anger aside, it’s a real pleasure to welcome today’s interviewee into the fold. She’s a busy lady, so all that business above should be waived off as the ramblings of a very...
