Changing Gear is a new series here on EMULSIVE where photographers are invited to talk about equipment or events that have changed the way they approach the world through their lens.
Creator, mentor, ambassador.
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 discovered my love of film photography by accident. Being a collector, I have always frequented thrift stores for anything I could find of interest.
"Do you remember when we first met? I thought I had wandered into a dream." I have always loved that quote from The Lord of the Rings.
The F2 was Nikon's mechanical, manual flagship camera of the 1970s.
The cost of manual-focus 35mm equipment increases to rise and Nikon gear is leading the pack.
Greetings from EMULSIVE HQ.
This film, FOQUS A125, is made by an enthusiast in Russia, and is hard to obtain without Russian connections (Russians buy it from the man himself on a forum full of untranslatable idioms).
I remember the Nikon F3 being expensive when it first came out in 1980. At the time, a new Nikon F3 with a 50mm lens cost about US$1,175 - that's about US$3,500 adjusted for inflation.
Just out of the blue, my dear friend Edward, a stage magician, called me up to ask if I could cover his performance. Without hesitation, I said yes.
In 1984 I had just entered my 20s and my pockets were not very deep. Up to that point I had been using a Rolleiflex SL35M, my second SLR, but it had stopped working.
I have always found the look of black and white infrared photographs intriguing and really wanted to try it myself.
Fujicolor cross processes as a wonderful black & white film with great tonality and nice grain.

Fujifilm's Fujicolor C200 is one of my favorite film stocks, it seems to love the bright Hawaiian sun, whether shooting at the beach or in the mountains.
