There are friendships… and there are FRIENDSHIPS that play out like that iconic scene in Casablanca where Rick goes, “Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship”. And that’s how mine and Tonchi’s journey to hours and hours of cameras started. Around 11 years ago I moved to Canada. While there a […]
If you’re celebrating, Merry Christmas! If you’re not, welcome to the end of a year which, well, that’s enough about that. I made a promise to myself early in 2020 that I’d do my best to focus on the positives and share a little more love than usual this year. Things didn’t turn out exactly […]
I’ve been trying to keep my local film photography community here in the Philippines creatively engaged as we’re 3 ½ weeks into…
2020 is one giant anomaly. I don’t think anyone of us thought we’d be in this scenario 8 months ago, and yet here we are. In the bid to dazzle the remaining months, EM and I have agreed that cancelling the annual gift swap in favour of prints, cards, letters and the like is just […]
Homegrown labs today are the heart of the film photography process.
Merry Christmas! Hope you’re having a great day so far. It is with a heavy heart I bring to you the first of this years top-ten-as-chosen-by-you-listicles. Regular readers will know I’m not a huge fan of them but as the year draws near, I feel the need to recharge and although these take a fair […]
I highly recommend the Moscow Subway Metro. As someone who loves spending time exploring underground, this was perhaps an unexpected highlight of my 2019 trip to Russia. If you are going for a photo trip (after the obvious COVID restrictions are lifted), I highly suggest Sunday mornings between 8-10am. Weekdays will be hell as you’re […]
Receiving the ILFORD newsletter about the HARMAN REUSABLE CAMERA really threw me off guard. I thought to myself, “Why hasn’t anyone thought of this???”. I’ve run FilmFolk Philippines close to five wonderful years now and there really is a hole in an emerging market such as ours. The interest in film photography amongst the youth […]
Last year when my brother travelled to Vancouver, I gave him $200 to visit my favourite camera seller and told him, “Get me a camera, whatever the seller suggests, he knows me, he knows what I like.” My brother came
Brand new for 2020 and a world photographic first, these pre-rolled 35mm film cassettes are loaded with specially coated cyanotype paper, which will allow you to use one of the world’s first photographic techniques in any 35mm film camera ever made. Say hello to “Paper Blues”.
A huge thank you to the nearly 1100 players in over 50 countries who came together to participate in 2019’s fifth annual EMULSIVE Santa. It’s that time of the year again and I’m proud to be able to announce that registration for the sixth annual EMULSIVE Secret Santa is now open. Before you skip to […]
I’m incredibly pleased to bring you the words and pictures of Aislinn Chuahiock in this week’s EMULSIVE interview.
EMULSIVE Secret Santa is simply the most wonderful time of the year.
The EMULSIVE Santa 17 draw is getting close and I’m already at the mental stage of creating a possible checklist of what I would like to send my partner and where I can get it.
Almost a year to this day, on a late January afternoon, I met with three characters who were crazy enough to have woken up one morning and collectively thought to themselves, “Hey, we think we’ll build a film lab.”
UPDATE: Registration for EMULSIVE Santa 2019 has closed. Registration for the fifth EMULSIVE Santa is now open until October 31st! If you have participated in at least one previous event, you’ve already been invited. Please check your inbox. If you don’t have an invite or are playing for the first time, please finish reading this […]
At first, I didn’t get the hype but I really respect Dan Ko’s opinion when he said he would buy any Konica Waiwai at the silliest price he could find.
I’ve had this Steky camera (2 of them actually) in my collection for a while now. I only take them out during show and tell, and always…
It’s day three of lazy post week here on EMULSIVE but there’s nothing lazy about the folks featured in today’s countdown.
It’s time to announce the community-voted winner for #DeltaDefJam November 2017! It was a close call, with only 4% of the votes separating the top 3. Anyway, enough of me.
