I started taking photos in 2020 as a hobby, the idea of photography excited me as it was a way to see the city and my Vancouver neighbourhood through a different lens. Growing up my mom loved photography and had always had a Nikon FE around. As a child, I loved holding the camera, turning […]
Monochrome waterfalls. Inspired by how my results with Lomography Potsdam Kino 100 came out, I decided to try out Lomography Babylon Kino ISO 13 film. ISO 13?! I have never shot with anything that slow. However, I bought this film with the intention to use it for waterfall photography. The slow speed would require the […]
I am no photographer. Well, not in any meaningful sense of the word anyways. I have neither formal training nor professional experience in the practice. Yet despite this, film photography is now a passion, a mode of expression, and a way of seeing the world which I hold dear. Like many other amateurs (I use […]
5 Frames… Of pre-US election day 2020 on ILFORD FP4 PLUS (Nikon FE / 35mm Format) – by Todd Shorack When I develop a roll of film, I always look forward to seeing the faces of people I have just met on the street, but masks and street portraiture do not mix well. My self-assignments […]
Hi, my name is Philipp, I’m 38 years and like to photograph on film. I loaded my first roll of film with my brother at the age of 12 and since then I’ve been taking photos more or less. Sometime after my early introduction, my brother got an old Minolta SRT from our uncle who […]
I always wanted a cheap, simple camera. That would not make me too sad, if I scratched it, lost it, broke it, a real user camera. An SLR, for simple focussing, a Nikon, since I had some lenses already. So I wanted “one of those MF Nikons”. I went out, visited some stores, and came […]
I have always been on the fence about Kodak’s T-MAX 400 film. I have been using it on and off for the last ten years now but only had really used it for specific purposes, mainly portraits due to its super sharp rendering and high resolution with very fine grain. T-MAX 400 also has beautiful contrast right off […]
Have you ever wondered if magic is real or not? Well, I can tell you that it is, and somehow, Kodak has managed to harness that magic and stuff it into a small film canister for me to bewilder over. I have absolutely no idea how they did this but I’m so happy they did. Kodak T-MAX […]
Welcome to 2020 here on EMULSIVE! I hope you all had a peaceful ringing in of the new year. For my part, I was in bed ten minutes after the fireworks finished. I’m pleased to be able to kick off the year off with my first film photographer interview of 2020: number 210 to be […]
These five frames come from my first-ever roll of Kodak Tri-X 400 that, insofar as experience goes, was only my fourth roll of film. They are shot on a Nikon FE and a Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 AI lens from 1978, purchased by my dad when he was 27 years old—an immigrant from the Philippines to […]
These 5 frames are from a roll of ILFORD HP5 PLUS I shot on my Nikon FE and 24mm f/2.8D lens while visiting Toronto earlier this year. It had been raining for two full days.
I have always found the look of black and white infrared photographs intriguing and really wanted to try it myself.
The last time I shot film was somewhere around 2002, and I certainly hadn’t purchased a film camera this century. That all changed when I picked up a used Nikon FE in Ginza, Tokyo a few weeks ago.
My first film camera was the Nikon FE, I bought it off Kijiji (the Canadian version of Craigslist) with two lenses, flash and a funky vintage bag for $75.
It’s a pleasure to be able to bring you all the work and words of Joy Celine Asto, whom some of you may remember from her article introducing Manila back at the top of 2017.
