5 Frames… Of ILFORD SFX 200 Developed in Cinestill’s Df96 monobath with a Fuji GS645S and a red filter

The Fuji GS645S Professional was a camera I had an interest in ever since it was introduced back in 1984. It was a nice medium format camera that’s ready for anything with its “cow bar” that wrapped around the lens. The camera has a fixed 60mm f/4 lens with rangefinder focusing. Holding the camera normally, […]

5 Frames… Of portraits on Fujifilm Superia X-TRA 400 (35mm Format / EI 400 / Canon EOS 50E + Canon EF 50mm f/1.4)

First things first, I have to confess that I am 80% a digital shooter. It’s more convenient because I work mostly with models, and therefore, attention to detail is important, so I like to occasionally be able to check the results on the LCD screen. Recently, I did some cleaning up in my studio and […]

5 Frames… From my first roll of slide film and a Minolta CLE + Minolta Rokkor-M 40mm f/2 (Kodak EKTACHROME 100 / 35mm Format / El 100)

These 5 frames are my first try at shooting a slide film. About 5 months ago I decided to start my journey into the film photography. And it was a love from the first touch I would say. The whole process from unpacking the film and putting it into the camera, to cocking the shutter, […]

5 Frames… And a bit of luck with a Mamiya 645 PRo and Kodak Portra 400 (120 Format / EI 400 / Mamiya Sekor C 80mm f/2.8)

I wouldn’t say I’m a completely skeptical person. Superstition isn’t really my thing too. But when it comes to giveaways and raffles, sometimes I like to play the odds. With my Mamiya 645 Pro, that was the case. I saw a raffle online with three prizes and a few numbers at a reasonable price. The […]

Visualising the Unspeakable: Exploring Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder with wet plate photography

Even when the camera is focused on a single subject, photographic portraiture rarely, if ever, speaks with just one voice. It is this multifaceted layering, be it intentional or otherwise, that generates intrigue and keeps us coming back for another look, drawn to some inexplicable detail that refuses to sit quietly on the page. Historical […]

5 Frames… With Lomography CN 400 on an uncoated lens (35mm Format / Leica M6 + Voigtländer 35mm f/1.4 Nokton Classic SC)

When it comes to print film we all have our favorites, be it for aesthetics, latitude, how they handle some (intentional) abuse (over/underexposure, pushing, pulling), e.t.c. And I have narrowed down my list to Kodak Ektar 100, Kodak Ultramax 400 and CineStill 800T as, from my own experience and preferences this specific trio covers all […]
