After learning last year that our office was due to close, I wanted to use my photographic skills to give something back to the people I worked with, something that might help them find their next dream job. I thought I could offer portraits that people could use on their CVs and social media. After […]

The Kiev 60. It was the camera that got me into medium format film photography, and for better or worse, the one that I love, and the one that frustrates me the most. A Soviet tank of a camera — the T-34 if you will — it’s not one that you want to lug up […]

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 […]
If you’re celebrating, Merry Christmas! If you’re not, welcome to the end of a year which, well, that’s enough about that. I made a promise to myself early in 2020 that I’d do my best to focus on the positives and share a little more love than usual this year. Things didn’t turn out exactly […]
These 5 frames are my first try at shooting a slide film. About 5 months ago I decided to start my journey into the film photography. And it was a love from the first touch I would say. The whole process from unpacking the film and putting it into the camera, to cocking the shutter, […]
From the start of my “film shooters career” I was shooting either negative color film or BW negative film. My favorite emulsions were and still are Kodak Portra 400 for color and Kodak Tri-X 400 for BW shots. It’s staple, one of the most forgiving and beautiful films for my taste. Slide film on the […]
It all started last year when I began my dive into film photography: all those 35mm and 120 film cameras were so exciting… And then I stumbled on one camera that was special, not only in my beginner’s opinion, but for a lot of photography people out there – The Hasselblad Xpan. Quick forum research […]
One of the things I tried while in India was to set myself a simple challenge: to shoot a “perfect” roll of 36 exposures.
After the successful resurrection of 35mm Ektachrome, Kodak announced it would also bring back 120 and large formats. Later we even found out 4×5 large format sheets were also going to be released. At the time of writing in the middle of January 2020, we are living in the twilight zone of it being–or-just-not-yet–being on […]

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 […]
The OM-4 represented the pinnacle of Olympus film camera development. The multi-spot metering function, unique to the OM-3 and OM-4 bodies, afforded photographers the greatest manual exposure control in any film camera produced.
Using reversal film for flash photography is not the most obvious choice but there are a few characteristics which make using Kodak’s new Ektachrome E100 for flash photography very interesting.
It’s the fourth article in 2018’s end-of-year lazy post, this time counting down the most popular film reviews here on EMULSIVE over the course of 2018.
2017’s end of year listicles seem like they went down pretty well, so I’ve decided to put my personal prejudice against them to one and put together a few more for 2018.
Most of the frames which make up this mini-review are from the first roll of slide film
I have to start with saying of late my taste in colour film has been changing.
