Ekt-cars – classic american cars on Kodak Ektar 100 – by Sandeep Sumal

Sitting in bed one recent Sunday morning, I noticed a local news item. In the town next to where I live there was going to be an American car and bike show. The weather was good so I furtively suggested to the family we go and visit. All but my youngest agreed, her response was “I hate cars”. Anyway we decided to go despite her very vocal protest. Now I was excited about going for two reasons. Firstly I really like cars of all types but more to the point of this post, I have always been really really...

5 Frames With… #03: Lomography Lomochrome Purple XR 100-400 (EI 400 / 35mm / Nikon F6)

This was from my 2nd roll of Lomography’s new Lomochrome Purple XR 100-400.  I had shot my first roll in Malta and liked what it could do with colours.  I was heading to Brighton for the afternoon with the family for lunch and a look around.  Although it was not a photography trip I took two rolls of film with me, the Lomography Purple and some Kodak EKTACHROME 100VS.   Leaving the house, I hadn’t decided what mood I was in or indeed if I would have the opportunity to take photos, I also didn’t want to load film...

Little did I realise that EM’s first response was to challenge me to shoot in a different style and me the first victim willing participant. Grudgingly agreeing to do it, the first step was to choose what type of photography I was going to be challenged to shoot. It turns out close-up was the challenge...

Camera review: me and my Holga 120n by Sandeep Sumal

Well well well, a review on my thoughts about using a Holga, specifically the Holga 120N. I should also mention, this camera is the glow-in-the-dark version which is very useful, said no one ever. I do wonder when handling it, is the phosphorescent paint slowly killing me? I can already feel various conflicting emotions welling up inside me as I ponder my thoughts and consider what to write. Speaking of which, here’s what’s covered in this review:     Technical overview First the technical bit. Its plastic, the lens is plastic, its assembled nicely but not with any sort of precision...

Thoughts on Fuji Neopan 1600 AKA: let your film fulfil its destiny – Sandeep Sumal

Some weeks back I bought 3 rolls of expired Fuji Neopan 1600. This is a film that was discontinued circa 2010 and one I had been interested in trying for some time. I swapped two in a #FILMSWAP because why not share the wealth, and I put the remaining roll in the fridge, as that’s what you are supposed to do right? Getting my milk for breakfast in the morning that little green Fuji box would be there looking back and minding its own business. It would still there waiting when it was time to get my evening beer. Just...
