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 […]

My First Roll… Of ILFORD Delta 3200 Professional, 35mm, EI 3200 with a Canon Elan II + Canon 50mm f/1.8
My first roll of film was an exciting one. I had an old 1990s Canon film camera, the Elan II, for years and I had done absolutely nothing with it. I found myself bored with digital photography. It had become uninspiring to me, however, I still wanted to practice my photography. So I had to […]
5 Frames… Around lakes Como and Lugano on expired ILFORD Delta 3200 Professional (120 Format / EI 1000 / Hasselblad 500 C/M + Hasselblad Distagon C T* 50mm f/4)
When you rummage inside your old camera bag and find an unexposed roll of ILFORD Delta 3200 Professional, the urge to try to expose and develop it despite the fact that the expiration date says something like ’12 years before today’, well it comes to you, and how. …and if in the cellar you also […]
My approach to Rodinal semi-stand film development
My film development workflow shifted in 2020 and became almost entirely based around semi-stand methods. Previously I had used ILFORD DD-X and taken great care over timings and chemistry – including for stand dev, but as I’ve found more of my projects start to come together I have not been able to dedicate myself in […]
EMULSIVE’S most popular film stock reviews of 2020
There are a few days left for 2020 (well, 2 at the time of publication) and like 2019, we didn’t see any film stocks being discontinued. A small blessing, given everything else that’s been going on. I was hoping for official news of a couple of new film stocks at least but you’ll have to […]
5 Frames… From the Peter Pan Cup Christmas Day 2019, on ILFORD Delta 3200 Professional and HP5 PLUS
The Peter Pan Cup is a yearly 100m race, a swim across the icy-cold Serpentine Lido in Hyde Park. Swimmers have met in the park every Christmas morning since 1864, and the titular “Peter Pan Cup” was first donated in 1904 by author J.M. Barrie himself. Participants must acclimatise themselves to the cold across the year, […]
5 Frames… of the mundane on ILFORD Delta 3200 Professional (35MM Format / EI 3200 / Minolta SRT 201)
A month ago my trip unfortunately cut short thanks to our current pandemic situation. Days later I came down with my personal cocktail of symptoms so I’m glad I returned early. If I’m going to be stuck in quarantine it better be at home where all the film is and not stuck in a small […]
Film Notes: Current high-speed films, ILFORD Delta 3200 Professional and Kodak T-MAX P3200
I’ve often described how I think that people looking for a different “look” from film would be better suited exposing and developing in a different way before they’d see any benefit from switching emulsions. Unless someone is searching for a specific “effect” in terms of grain structure, or halation, then most films will produce fairly […]
5 Frames… Pushing Ilford Delta 3200 Professional to EI 25000 (35mm / EI 2500 / Canon EOS-3)
I recently revisited the Delta 3200 datasheets looking for recommendations to get less grainy results than with Rodinal-type developers. I was intrigued to see that if I used ILFORD ILFOTEC DD-X, there was the option to push all the way to EI 25000. I thought I’d give it a try… The first hurdle: Find a […]
Essay: It’s all been done before so why bother taking photographs?
I’m constantly getting back to this thought and feel it’s about time to share something with you that comes very close to my inner monologue. You have been warned. I highly doubt that we all have the same motivations to take photographs but it is interesting to explore my own situation and hear your experience, […]
5 Frames… Of Bethmoora on ILFORD Delta 3200 Professional (EI 3200 / 35mm format / Canon EOS-1V HS)
I know the drummer of the Danish heavy metal band Bethmoora. In October 2019 they were performing at the legendary concert venue…
EMULSIVE interview #213: I am Ryan HK and this is why I shoot film
Have you ever heard off an off-the-grid professional film photographer? You have now. Ladies and gentlemen, introducing Ryan HK. Over to you, Ryan. Hi Ryan, what’s this picture, then? This is a mistake. RHK: In Bob Ross’ words “A happy little accident.” I was in this crazy little ghost town in rural Alberta… I brought […]
Embracing winter conditions in my film photography workflow
Winter 2018 was when I really buckled down and took black and white photography seriously, as a response to a few uninspiring grey-feeling colour rolls. I wanted to take command of that grey aesthetic, and quickly went through pushed ILFORD XP2 Super, Delta 3200 Professional, Delta 400 Professional, and even some SFX 200, looking to […]
5 Frames… With ILFORD Delta 3200 Professional (EI 1600 / 35mm format / Nikkormat EL)
With a friend’s wedding coming up later this year and being an avid photographer, I decided that as my gift to them I would photograph some highlights from the day and present them to them in an album. I was after a film I could use for both the day ceremony and the evening celebrations. […]
Reviewing the Rolleiflex 2.8GX Expression 75 years edition (it’s gold!)
Let’s start with the elephant in the room – this camera comes with some serious bling. It is in fact, a special gold-dipped version officially called the “Rolleiflex 2.8GX Expression 75 years edition”.
5 Frames… Of mountain bikes with ILFORD Delta 3200 Professional (EI 3200 / 35mm format / Canon EOS 650)
Winter has come…to BC, which means a lot of cloud, some snow and the sun setting around 3:30pm, which is kind of ridiculous.
5 Frames… With ILFORD Delta 3200 Professional at night (EI 6400 / 35mm format / Minolta SRT100x)
I had never pushed film before but upon my arrival on a recent trip to Dublin, Ireland I thought I would try my luck with some old-fashioned analog night photography.
