I believe that we don’t give enough consideration to photographing flowers in black and white. Last year I ventured into the garden with my Minolta XD-11 and ILFORD’s HP5 PLUS. Recently, HP5 has become my ‘go-to’ 35 mm B&W film after my experiences of the past 2 years. I was also pushed by the Frugal […]
All these frames were shot with my Minolta X-700 and a Minolta MD Rokkor 50mm f/1.7, the combination that made me discover my passion for photography almost a year ago. Even though I’m still in the phase of finding out which film stock I like the most, Ultramax 400 is the one that I always […]
A 35 mm roll of Yodica Polaris ISO 400 film arrived in my life as a part of EMULSIVEsanta19. I had discussed in a previous posting on special effect films that I was not a great fan of them. But when you receive a gift you should go out and try it. And So I did. I […]
I came back to shooting film three years ago in 2017. For the previous fifteen years I had been shooting digital with a range of cameras, the last one being the Fuji X-T1, which I still use randomly or for special assignments. It is a fine, elegant and reliable machine and the results I was […]
Lomography’s LomoChrome Purple XR 100-400 is definitely an interesting film. Until shooting it in late 2019, I had never tried a ‘special effects’ film before and surprisingly, I liked it. But there are some caveats that never seem to be mentioned in Lomography’s posts and promotions. This is not so much intended as a film […]
All these frames were shot at the white sands national monument while on a road trip in the States (my family are all American – this road trip happens bi-annually). We were driving the length of Route 66…
I had wanted to collaborate with a friend of mine, a very talented performance artist working under the name Roxxie Botoxxie.
In 2018, E-6 Processing is expensive. I shot this roll back in April and after shooting it, it sat in my freezer for 2 months, because I can’t afford to get too many rolls of E-6 processed at once.
The tungsten aesthetic really is my thing. I love seeing it used for night outdoors shots; I’m convinced that even the most mundane things, shot at night, on tungsten film, automatically become statement shots…
Walking in the woods, that‘s my thing. So taking pictures in the woods seems to come naturally (pun intended).
Today’s interviewee hails from Portugal and is currently enjoying life in tropical Malaysia.
Having done a ‘5 Frames With’ from a camera point of view already for Hamish at 35mmc, so doing another one from a film point of view just had to be done.
After last week’s lifting of the curtain with my interview of myself (meta!), it’s back to business as usual with this week’s interview.
Well, I say business as usual but Lisa DeShantz-Cook’s photography is nothing of the sort.
Today’s interviewee is a real treat, I’m honoured to me able to introduce you to David Rothschild, a native Virginian photographer an musician with a interesting adoration of naked trees and old houses.
Over to you, David.
I’ve got more fresh blood for you today in the form of Christopher Schmidtke from Wuerzburg, Germany.
I won’t spoil it and let you all jump in;
