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 […]
As a hobbyist photographer, I have historically not undertaken photo projects, doing so just wasn’t on my radar. Typically, I take a camera with me and shoot wherever I am, whether that is while traveling for work, or just going out for the day, etc. Basic enthusiast photographer stuff. Granted, a collection of shots from […]
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!

I set out this Spring and Summer to do a comparative test of Kodak EKTACHROME E100 and Fujifilm Fujichrome Velvia 50 (RVP50).

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 […]

Welcome to part four of this series exploring every single film stock (including instant film, dry plates, etc.), still being made today.
I noticed a 3 roll box of 120 Lomography Color Negative 400 film in my local Boots Pharmacist some time ago.
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.
