Halfway through… six months in already? How did that happen… didn’t we just start? Actually, we are settling into our routine but the bloom is off the rose…
Welcome to a fresh instalment of my “…this is why I shoot film” series!
“What about Berlin?”, I asked my partner.
We were looking for a city break last October and had no idea where to go.
I had never pushed film before but upon my arrival on a recent trip to Dublin, Ireland I thought I would try my luck with some old-fashioned analog night photography.
It was always going to come to this point. With compact cameras that sport prime lenses, even though the image quality is as it should be, the photographer is limited to a single set focal length.
I’m pleased to be able to introduce today’s fresh interview with Ezequiel Grimaldi, film photographer based in Spain’s San Sebastian.
I’ll keep this short so you can spend as much time as possible on the images below.
I purchased this camera through Gumtree because it came with some great accessories (Minolta Auto 320X Flash, the Hanimex lens used here, a Makinon MC f/4.5 80-200mm zoom, Minolta auto winder and various filters!) and, it was an excellent
So I decided it was time to experiment with Cinestill 800. I got myself some rolls of 35mm and 120. My weapon of choice was my ever trustworthy Minolta Autocord with its 75mm Rokkor lens.
This week’s interviewee has been shooting film for a little over a year at the time of writing.
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…
I asked my self this question very recently: can one photo make a difference?
I’m back with the second in this series of end-of-year-lazy-posts.
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.
Today’s interviewee is a stalwart of the Twitter film photography community and I’m so happy to be able to bring her interview to you today.
In this article, I will be reviewing the 1979 Hi-Matic AF released in 1979. It is an automatic 35mm film camera with an Auto Focus capability.
Today we’re grabbing some time with Marta Beltowska, currently based in London, UK.
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.
Indulge me a brief stroll down memory lane.
It was during the fall of 2004 when I was first exposed to photography through a course at university.
