Mini review: JCH Streetpan 400 & Rollei CN 200 (AGFA Digibase 200) – by Lorraine Healy

The first time I saw EM’s “Secret Santa” idea was just before Christmas 2015 and, whether because I was fairly new to EMULSIVE, or because I was too thick to comprehend a wonderful concept, I didn’t sign up. When I saw the articles afterwards, and the many comments, it dawned on me what an absolutely fabulous idea this was. I made myself the promise that I would sign up in 2016. If you are new to the site and don’t know what EM’s Secret Santa concept is all about, this is it, in a nutshell: you sign up to...

Travelogue: Moroccan autumn – Lorraine Healy

In October 2015 I spent 10 days in Morocco with a small group of photographers led by Lee Frost, the renowned English landscape photographer.
