5 Frames… From Devotion chapter one: “Girls” – Kodak Tri-X 400 (120 format / EI 400 / Yashica 635) – by Lisa K Cho

My new project, “Devotion” takes its inspiration from my newfound love and commitment to my hometown, Hawaii. The series invites the viewer to see Hawaii through my lens as I revisit memories from my youth, collaborate with the new wave of creatives, and explore the deep relationships we have with one another and our community.

5 Frames… Of canals, locks, floodgates, sluices, and levees on ILFORD XP2 Super (35mm / EI 320 + Y48 Filter / Nikon F3 + MD-4 / 50mm 1.2 AI-s) – by Patrick Gillin

ILFORD XP2 Super often gets a bad rap, as did the C41 B&W offerings from Fuji and Kodak before they were canned. I started shooting it while home from university for holidays and summers, since I could get it inexpensively and easily processed near my parents’ house rather than bringing the exposed film back to […]

The 1950s saw the release of the Ansco Speedex 4.5 Special, a 6×6 folding camera made in Germany and sold by Ansco and Agfa under the names Speedex and Isolette. The camera lineup offered a range of models with diverse lens and shutter configurations to suit different budgets. As a piece of photographic equipment, the […]

5 Frames… As an ode to unsung photography heroes (Fujifilm NEOPAN 100 ACROS / 35mm format / EI 100 / Nikon F + Nikon Micro-Nikkor 55mm f/2.8)

No, this ode is not about the camera, lens and film mentioned in the headline and shown in the photo below. The praises of NEOPAN 100 ACROS film, the „F“ and the Micro-Nikkor have been proclaimed in countless other contributions on this site and on many others. This is more about a device that lends […]

5 Frames… At the Tatacoa Desert on Kodak Color Plus 200 and a Nikon FM2n (35mm Format / El 200 / Nikon Nikkor 28-105mm AF macro f/3.5-4.5D) – by Juan Roa

I wanted to visit Colombia’s Tatacoa Desert before traveling to the US, and asked my friend Susana if she would like to take a motorcycle trip there. She immediately said YES! We traveled from Cali, and our trip was around 16 hours (driving) and stayed in a wonderful place called Orion camp base, specialises in […]

5 Frames… Of street photography in Buenos Aires on the Mamiya RB67 (120 format / EI 100 / Kodak T-MAX 100) – by Simón Ducos

In the summer of 2019, I sold my trusty Olympus XA in order to buy my then-dream camera: the Mamiya RB67. Although these cameras are vastly different, the XA being ideal for travel and street photography while the RB is more for studio shoots and still-life, I was convinced that when the time came I […]

5 Frames… Of Cinestill 50D and a contemporary dancer aka, “Scatter in Four” (120 format / EI 50 / Hasselblad 503CX + Carl Zeiss Planar 80mm f/2.8) – by Abel M

They are the elements with which one afternoon we go out to try to capture the vibration that emotions produce during the dance movement. These five photographs are the first of a photographic project that seeks the relationship of the person with the movement. So the way I found to approach the objective of the […]

5 Frames… Around my Houston neighborhood on Adox CMS 20 II Pro (EI 20 / 35mm Format / Minolta X-700 + MD Rokkor 35mm f/2.8) – by Joseph Jacobs

Hi, my name is Joseph, and I am a recovering analog gear addict (a resounding “Hi Joseph” from the interwebs). Yes…back in 2017, at the beginning of my “analog journey”, I found myself obsessively buying all of the cheap film cameras that Etsy and eBay could offer. They simply looked cool (am I right here, […]

5 Frames… Of Polaroid Color SX-70 Film at the tiny Greek island of Anafi (ISO 160 / Polaroid SX-70 + 116mm f/8 lens) – by George Pavlopoulos

The journey to the island of Anafi takes me more than half a day from Athens, and returning every summer has become something more than a ritual: it’s a seal that marks one more time around the sun. The small Cycladic island doesn’t seem to belong in the digital era, and that’s probably why I […]

5 Frames… At Beers & Cameras Sacramento on expired Kodak Supra 400 (35mm / EI 25 / Leica M3 with 50mm f/2 Dual-Range Summicron)

Much to the joy of us Northern California film shooters, Beer & Cameras Sacramento recently reawakened after its long Covid slumber. To mark the occasion, I brought my Leica M3, the awesome 50mm f/2 Dual-Range Summicron, and an expired roll of Kodak Supra 400 to their meetup at a local brewery. Of course, the meetup […]
