That’s right I said it, stop cross-processing lovely slide film. Slide film was designed to produce lovely true striking colours, with great contrast, sharpness and fine grain. It allowed photographers, artists and printers to see exactly what they were getting. Yet you want to xpro it to make it grainy, blurry and a complete smorgasbord […]
I don’t know about the rest of you but the COVID-19 lockdown pretty much took away my photography mojo for a while. I mean, when you are worried about the health of your family, friends and yourself, these things are going to take a back seat. What I found eventually once we settled into the […]
What did my mother tell me about talking to strange men on the internet? That’s right, I shouldn’t do it. Did I listen? That would be a no. Social media is a strange place and you can end up chatting to many different people on a whole range of subjects, but I digress. On this […]
As a film photographer, unless you have been living under a rock the last few weeks you will know the exciting news that ILFORD Photo launched a new film, ILFORD ORTHO PLUS on October 24th. It is an orthochromatic black and white film which ILFORD suggests should be rated at EI 80 and EI 40 […]
When I first started photography as a serious hobby I was shooting a Fujifilm X10 digital camera.
I’ve have had a roll of Kodak EKTACHROME Infrared EIR in my fridge for a year or so now. For those of you that don’t know this is a colour Infrared slide film (E6 processing, #SayNoToXPRO).

I love ILFORD XP2 SUPER. It’s a film I have shot with extensively. It is a C-41 black and white film so not a ‘true’ black and white film.
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.
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.
Back towards the end of 2016 and early 2017 EMULSIVE asked the film community what type of articles we would like to see in 2017.
Well well well, a review on my thoughts about using a Holga, specifically the Holga 120N. A glow-in-the-dark version, which is very useful, said no one ever.
Some weeks back I bought 3 rolls of expired Fuji Neopan 1600.
The Olympus OM-1 was introduced in 1973 and was originally launched as the M-1, which relatively quickly had to be changed to the OM-1 as Leica felt it was too close to their M series. According to Olympus, it
