5 Frames… Of a slice of Amsterdam and Zaandam on Lomography Lomochrome Purple XR 100-400 (35mm Format / EI 100 / Canon Canonet QL17 GIII)

Once I learned about LomoChrome Purple, I had this idea in my head of using that film to take a photo of the famous “Lego” house in Zaandam. It’s this wonderfully unique building that looks like various traditional Dutch houses stacked on top of each other. More significantly, the facade is mostly green. People who […]

5 Frames… Of birds on a 1000mm lens and Fujifilm Superia X-TRA 400 (35mm format / EI 400 / Nikon F601QD + LZOS MC MTO-11CA 1000mm f/10) – by Wenhong

More than ten years ago, I came across a book entitled “Birds in Our Midst” by Chew Yen Fook published in 1991. This book is a photo essay about the birds in Singapore. Of course, in 1990s all photos were taken with film cameras equipped with manual focus lenses. I revisited this book recently and […]

5 Frames… Of Querétaro at dawn on Kodak VISION3 500T 5219 and a Hasselblad 503CX (120 Format / EI 500 / Distagon C 50mm f/4)

For a long time I wanted to use motion picture film, I found myself buying Cinestill 800T for the convenience of developing but after doing some research I found that it is not difficult to develop motion picture film with C-41 chemistry. So I bought some rolls of medium format Kodak VISION3 500T (5219) for […]

5 Frames… Around Virginia Beach on Kodak Portra 400 (Konica Hexar RF + Voigtlander Ultron 35mm f/2 MC Aspherical Type II)

“Are you taking pictures of me?” he asked somewhat curiously, somewhat annoyed. I was. He spontaneously struck a pose, I quickly took the shot. “They stole one of my guitars,” he candidly shared. “It’s okay: I have two more, motherf*ckers!” I lamented the unfortunate turn of events. Seemingly unfazed, he replied, “I only need one […]

5 Frames… Of Penang on Film Washi A, a Minolta Maxxum 7000 and a Minolta Zoom 35-80mm f/4-5.6 (35mm / EI 12)

Many nights I think about tipping points and critical thresholds, about decisions made from which there is no turning back. I don’t really lose sleep over it. I think it’s part of why I started shooting film, how once you click the shutter the image is forever there, physically, but whatever’s in front of you […]

5 Frames… Of Northern Arizonan Americana on Kodak Portra 400 with a Mamiya 23 Standard + Mamiya Sekor 150mm f/5.6 – by Garry Cahal

I have passed through this area of Northern Arizona known as Grey Mountain many times for work. This trip was different. I had my new to me Mamiya 23 Standard 6×9 medium format camera with me and a fresh roll of Kodak Portra 400. The abandoned Whiting Hotel has recently had a colorful facelift from […]

5 Frames… Of Nordic summer bliss (and Heathrow) on Lomography 800 and a Hasselblad 500CM with Carl Zeiss Planar CF 80mm f/2.8

My family and I recently moved to Sweden. I had owned the Hasselblad for a few months prior to moving, but documenting our first few months in the country of its origin seemed poignant! The first few film stocks I had tried were Ektar 100, then Lomography Color Negative 800 (which I had unsuccessfully tried […]
