“Ballet on Film” is an intimate story of how Honolulu Classical Ballet evolved to keep art and its artists relevant during the pandemic. It was a collaboration with Honolulu Classical Ballet and artistic director Romi Beppu into the rich hues, spirited movements, and magical artistry that is ballet in Hawaii. Instead of focusing on the […]
At this point in my film career, I own my fair share of cameras. I’ve bought a Mamiya RB67 and some lenses. I splurged on a Plaubel Makina 67. I even found a Mamiya 7 II for half street value courtesy of a kind old man on craigslist. And I’ve shot with all of these […]
My girlfriend, four of our friends, and I recently planned a backpacking trip to the scenic Lake Aloha in California’s Desolation Wilderness, not far from Lake Tahoe. I knew I wanted to capture the three-day, two-night trip on film, but had a difficult time deciding between my 13oz (0.36kg) point-and-shoot camera, or my 3lb (1.36kg) […]
‘Ballet on Film’ is an on-going collaboration with Honolulu Classical Ballet and artistic director Romi Beppu. It is an exploration into the rich hues, spirited movements and magical artistry that is ballet in Hawaii. Instead of focusing on the performance on stage, much of the visual story revolves around the in-between moments during rehearsal – […]
Today’s interviewee is a busy man, he’s a producer and off-air reporter covering the US Congress for NBC News, past Chairman of the Radio & Television Correspondents Association on Capitol Hill, oh and a film photographer who also happens to shoot some of our favourite film stocks (and cameras) while doing the day job. Looking […]
Today’s EMULSIVE interviewee should not be a stranger to regular readers. From his thoughts on the Contax S2 and RTS series to a quick delve into scanning film with the $20k Imacon 949, Tom Sebastiano has already given us a peek into some of his photography. It’s time to take a much deeper dive. Over […]
After 27 years of working at the airport, my father was recently informed that he would be let go. He started at the Belgian national carrier Sabena in 1992, continued to be employed when it went bankrupt in 2001 and survived two takeovers since then. My father loved his work, loved being at the airport, […]

It’s an absolute pleasure to welcome you all to join me falling into the words and work of a rather rare beast.
Life would be boring without experimentation and this fifth article for 2018’s lazy post listicles should help you scratch that itch…or not.
Either way, it’s here.

I know EMULSIVE is running a Portraparty, but me being a grumpy old-aged pensioner, I don’t have any social media accounts (although I do read some).
Update 03: 2018-11-20
Welcome to part four of this series exploring every single film stock (including instant film, dry plates, etc.), still being made today.
A few weeks ago, Nils suggested putting together an unorthodox camera/film review that he felt would be useful to readers of EMULSIVE. He wasn’t joking, it was anything but orthodox.
At the end of 2017 I mentioned to Aislinn Chuahiock that I’d received some 35mm Kodak Portra 800 to test out and was planning on pitting it against Lomography’s Color Negative 800 in a side-by-side review.
In her infinite wisdom
In the time honoured tradition of lazy posting at the end of each year, here’s the first in a series of top 10 and countdown articles planned for EMULSIVE during this final week of 2017.
First up, time to take
Welcome to the third instalment of my Long Exposure Test series. In this part, I am looking at 5 readily available colour negative films and how adjustment of longer exposure times effects the outcomes.
Rolling in for the second interview after my short break is Claudio Gomboli, Turinian currently ensconced in London, England.
I was visiting Hong Kong again after some years, and was caught by how the city’s landscape had changed during that time.
If you are just an old timer still shooting film, or new to the craft, photographing with film encourages one to explore and play with tactile gear and tangible materials.
Welcome to this week’s EMULSIVE interview!
Today’s interviewee is someone a few of you may have heard of and to be frank, it’s been a bit of headache to put together.
