I recently picked up a Kodak Pocket Instamatic 10, it’s a 110-format film camera that produces tiny negatives. Since then, I’ve been obsessed with it. What made me fall in love with this pocket 110 camera was its uncommon visual appearance of it — it immediately attracted me. The second thing was the simplicity of […]

Lomography special effect film comparison: Metropolis, Purple, Turquoise, Redscale
As a hobbyist photographer, I have historically not undertaken photo projects, doing so just wasn’t on my radar.

Granted, a collection of shots from […]
Purple nights on Lomochrome Purple with the Pixels and Grain Collective
Lomochrome Purple XR 100-400 is an interesting film, with unclear origins, that shifts colours towards the purple spectrum, like a fantasy/dream. Greens become purple, blues aqua/green, and skin tones orangey, in a psychedelic way. Iso 100? 200? 400? Take your pick!

My 2020 lockdown journey: a comparative test of Kodak EKTACHROME E100 and Fujifilm Velvia 50 (bonus Portra/Lomography included)

Lomography Peacock X-Pro Slide 110 film: Just because it says X-PRO doesn’t mean you should
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 […]

What I’ve learned from my LomoChrome Purple XR 100-400 experiences: A user’s guide
Lomography’s LomoChrome Purple XR 100-400 is definitely an interesting film. Until shooting it in late 2019, I had never tried a ‘special effects’ film before and surprisingly, I liked it. But there are some caveats that never seem to be mentioned in Lomography’s posts and promotions. This is not so much intended as a film […]

Blind film review #01: Fuji Natura 1600 vs Kodak Portra 800 vs 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.
