Penny for your thoughts: Documenting a unique bike race on medium format film

Having traveled internationally for years in search of compelling imagery, I sometimes feel like there aren’t many unique events left to cover in my own backyard. That’s obviously not the case, as the world (even my small corner of it) is filled with undiscovered wonders. This reassuring fact was driven home recently when a friend […]

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 […]

Hidden in Plain Sight: A 36-Day Quest to Discover the Daily Miracle of Nature’s Quiet Moments – by Dan Kehlenbach

The concept seemed simple — pick a specific place and explore it every day for thirty-six days, use only one camera and one lens, and take one photograph each day. One click of the shutter. With film. No second chances, no do-overs. I’ve been fascinated by this notion ever since watching Jim Brandenburg’s Chased by […]

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 panoramas in Grenoble on Kodak Panchromatic Separation Film 2238 (35mm Format / EI 12 / Horizon Perfekt + OF-28p 28mm f/2.8 MC lens) – by Alfonso Carpio Rovira

This past Easter I planned a trip to Grenoble, a good opportunity to take landscape shots of the French Alps. At the same time, I was been keen to try out an attractive low ISO film that I received in the last Secret Santa (thanks EM); a roll of Kodak Panchromatic Separation Film 2238, a panchromatic […]

5 Frames… Of Dresden Neustadt on Kodak Portra 160 (35mm format / EI 160 / Minolta SRT MC-II + Minolta MC 35mm f2.8) – by Konrad Kiesel

Lately, I found myself in the urge of shooting my trusty old Minolta SRT MC-II. While firing away some shots, to see if the shutter sounds reasonable at different speeds, I came to realise that I must have loaded some film into it at some point. Also I could not remember what film I loaded […]

5 Frames… Ending in a Pacific sunset on Kodak Portra 400 (35mm Format / EI 400 / Canon A-1 + Canon 50mm 1.4) – by Zak DenHartigh

This past November, I had the opportunity to visit a close friend of mine in Los Angeles, California. Given the current situation with covid, I didn’t really know what to expect on my trip. I was worried that there may not be enough going on to enjoy or photograph. I am thankful that there ended […]
