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 […]
The problem with these things is never knowing where to start. We are only ever where we are because of what came before.
Time for this year’s penultimate listicle, and it’s one for the gear heads out there, this year’s most popular camera reviews on EMULSIVE. Thanks to everyone who submitted their own reviews, and helped my with my own efforts this year cataloguing a series of exhaustive Leica M Camera guides! I’d love to hear from you […]
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 […]
The Leica M3 is a camera I have lustered over since the beginning of my photography career almost eleven years ago now. Obviously, it looks absolutely beautiful as far as mechanical design and engineering go, and although you hear a lot of people saying the camera you use doesn’t matter, I actually believe it does. […]
The Leica M3 doesn’t do anything that another camera can’t. In fact, by today’s standards, it is severely lacking in features that are normally considered standard. No light meter. No hot shoe. No autofocus. No automatic exposure. Limited frame line selection (50/90/135). 1/50 max flash sync speed… On paper then, one might ask why anyone […]
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 […]
I have had the will to try out CineStill 800T for a long time but never had the chance to do so until recently. Indeed I moved to Vienna, and in Vienna is an old amusement park called Prater. Its entry is free and it’s a great place to get those neon lights that work […]
In 2019 Lomography announced the launch of a Kickstarter campaign to fund a brand new film emulsion: LomoChrome Metropolis XR100-400.
Split between continents and cultures, today’s fresh interviewee Amol Parikh takes us on a trip into his photographic story, from the US East Coast to the West, from India to Mauritius. I’ll leave the rest to the man himself. Over to you, Amol. Hi Amol, what’s this picture, then? Rainbow Lifeguard Tower, Venice, California. Leica […]
While my freshly shot and developed Tri-X 400 (using Kodak D76) is hanging up to dry, I would like to summarize some of my thoughts about shooting my new Leica M3 for the first time. I bought myself a double-stroke Leica M3 as a birthday present from a local seller who is also a member […]
I shoot a lot of street photography, most of which is in Japan where I live. Grain has never been my thing.
It’s impossible to understate Tony Vaccaro’s contribution to the 20th century, be it in his role as World War II combatant and documentarian, or his post-war work in fashion and portrait photography.
At the end of 2017, I went to Kyoto with my wife and my three-year-old son.
Welcome to this week’s EMULSIVE interview.
Today we’ve dragged Chuck Miller away from his day job to tell us a bit about himself and his often seen “splitfilm” photography. In case you’re not familiar with it, I won’t spoil it here.
Today we’re sitting down with Mike Fraser, Toronto-based photographer, cancer researcher and all round globe-trotting nice guy.
Mike works in film of all formats, as well as the occasional foray into digital.
