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 […]

5 Frames… Making mistakes with a Graflex Speed Graphic and Arista Ortho 3.0 4×5 film – by Mark Rutledge

The pandemic lockdown probably spawned lots of new behaviors, routines and interests for many people out of sheer boredom. For me, it resurrected a love for the darkroom. I’m an old film guy having studied fine art film photography in college and used film; large format almost exclusively, in my commercial photography days but that […]

5 Frames… Of a weekend in NYC on ILFORD Delta 3200 Professional (EI 3200 / 35mm format / Nikon FM2 + Nikon Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 AF-D)

This trip to New York City was my first time there in about 15 years. I have always admired several photographers who were known for capturing New York street photography. Some of my favorites are Joel Meyerowitz, Vivian Maier, Jill Freeman, Gordon Parks, and Saul Leiter. My work isn’t anywhere close to their incredible street […]

5 Frames… Of ILFORD FP4 PLUS with my new Contax clone (35mm format / EI 100 / Kiev-4a + Jupiter 8M 50mm f/2) – by John Tarrant

I am a long-term Leica user, but have always admired the Contax aesthetic and Contax users were usually as enthusiastic about the Zeiss product as Leica users were about the Leitz products. So I recently took the opportunity to acquire fairly elderly Kiev-4a camera and prepared to enjoy the Contax experience. The Kiev-4a is sometimes […]

5 Frames… Around Blois on LomoChrome Purple XR 100-400 (35mm format / EI 200 / Yashica FX – 3 + Yashica Lens ML 50mm f/2) – by Steven Munday

To Describe the Town of Blois, I would begin with the picturesque gardens, the venerable buildings woven together with cobbled streets. Cemented in the history of France, Blois is a stunning destination for anyone with a love for culture, situated in the centre de Loire region and 2 hours south of Paris. Now, I had […]

5 Frames… Over 3 years on Kodak Portra 400, starting in New Orleans and finishing at Venice Beach (35mm format / EI 400 / Pentax Spotmatic + Super Takumar 50mm f/1.4)

Film is time travel. By the time I got this roll of Kodak Portra 400 developed and scanned, it had been sitting in my Pentax Spotmatic for three years, waiting to be developed. I shot the first half of the roll while it was still fresh, according to the date on the box, and the […]

5 Frames… Of visible and present grain on ILFORD HP5 PLUS + FX-37 (35mm format / EI 400 Nikon F2 + DE-1 + Nikon Nikkor 35mm f/2.8 AI) – by Emilio Romero

To begin with, it is always difficult to refer to a particular combination of camera, developer, and film that one is not used to using regularly, but I think for sure that this one is certainly worth taking a look at; the developer FX-37 in combination with ILFORD HP5 PLUS. Certainly, and as I imagine […]

5 Frames… At the farm on ILFORD HP5 PLUS and Voigtlander ULTRON SL II 40mm F/2 (35mm format / EI 400 / Nikon FM3A) – by Michael

I was recently in a farming community outside Columbia, Missouri, where my in-laws have a wonderful farm. It’s where my wife, my daughter, and I go to get away from the city and relax. My mother-in-law had just returned from a cattle auction the week before and she brought several new cows home with her. […]
