Many photographers look back at their work at the end of the year, to assess, critique, and, if you’re like me, to convince themselves that they’re moving forward with their work. This year was a bit different in some respects for me, as the end of the year marks the one-year anniversary of my move […]

5 Frames… Of macro photography on Fuji Velvia 50 (35mm / EI 50 / Nikon FM2 + Nikon 105mm f/2.8 AI-s Micro-Nikkor + Nikon Pk-3 extension tube)
With winter bearing down upon us, my family and I visited the Roger Williams Park Botanical Center in Providence, RI USA for a little weather respite. My family brought sketch pads and watercolor paints; I brought a roll of Fuji Velvia 50, a Nikon FM2, a Nikon 105mm f/2.8 AI-s Micro-Nikkor macro lens, and a […]
5 frames… of people with FujiFilm Velvia 50 and Rolleiflex 2.8GX
I’m getting back to my “summer experiment” -– testing medium format slide film. This time I’d like to share results from FujiFilm Velvia 50. Why do I call it “testing”? Because in my 9 years experience of shooting film, I tried slide film for the first time only this spring. Slide film is still a novelty […]
My 2020 lockdown journey: a comparative test of Kodak EKTACHROME E100 and Fujifilm Velvia 50 (bonus Portra/Lomography included)
I set out this Spring and Summer to do a comparative test of Kodak EKTACHROME E100 and Fujifilm Fujichrome Velvia 50 (RVP50). In my lifetime experience with film (going back to childhood), I’ve mostly shot slide film, and we had those traditional slide shows with Family and Friends because my mother used the original EKTACHROME from […]
5 Frames… At an abandoned warehouse on Fujifilm Velvia 50 RVP (EI 50 / 120 format / Hasselblad 503CXi)
My favourite thing about film photography is the different ‘personalities’ that exist in individual film stocks. I have shot lots of ILFORD black and white and Kodak Portra and a little Ektar 100, each has its own quirks and peculiarities – and to be honest, I haven’t yet come across a film stock that I […]

OK folks, buckle up for a flight over the Grand Canyon, it’s time to interview Alan Brock.
Film stock review: Fujifilm FUJICHROME Velvia 50 Professional (RVP 50)
I think there’s a pretty big misconception about shooting slide film. We’ve all heard the stories about how slide film is ridiculously hard to shoot, that if you’re off on your exposure by just a small amount that your highlights will either be blown away or everything will be a murky detail void shadow. Maybe […]

EMULSIVE’s most popular film stock reviews of 2019
There are a few days left for 2019 but fingers crossed, it’s the first year for quite some time where we haven’t seen one or more film discontinued – great, isn’t it? In fact, we’ve seen somewhere in the region of three new film stocks announced AND released – ILFORD ORTHO PLUS, Fujifilm NEOPAN 100 […]
Packing light for the Congo: Two countries, one river, eight film stocks
My travel assignments require me to create strong imagery that can be quickly and seamlessly integrated into a digital workflow, which is why my primary work camera is almost always a digital body. While I love the consistently excellent results that I have been able to get with digital cameras, I have missed the beautiful […]
