Hello again everyone. As I’ve said before, the pinch on new film prices has had me going through the rolls of long expired mystery film that I’ve had stored away for who knows how long and shooting them without a care of what the results really look like. So join me as I delve back […]
Well, it’s been a spell since I wrote anything here so firstly, hello everyone, I’m back for a bit. Well, kind of. I thought I’d write a series of short articles in the 5 Frames flavour as I’ve had an idea and I’ve missed talking about shooting film with strangers on the internet. If you’re […]
2020 is a different year in every way. So how about using a technical ISO 50 film and doing a reverse process to get a B&W SLIDE? It all started with an old roll of the famous Kodak Technical Pan, the film with ultrafine grain, discontinued in 2004. This roll was bought in a purchase […]
Have you ever broken photographic film? Broken as in snapped it in half and then opened the back of the camera to see what no photographer wants to see: naked undeveloped exposed film? Fret not you have not lost everything. In this post, I made the mistake of opening the camera thinking the film was […]
Well what can I say about the wee Zuiko lens, this little classic which I picked up for buttons. A mere 50 euros, a bargain second hand. If you can get your hands on this tiny beauty don’t hesitate on it. Olympus OM-1 and Zuiko Auto-Macro 50mm f/3.5 I took the OM-1 and the Zuiko […]
So a while ago now my girlfriend was looking through Gumtree for some sort of furniture we needed for a new place we were moving into. I can’t remember exactly what, possibly a dining table as I do remember a horrendous journey with the roof of her convertible mini down and me holding on for […]
I recently came across the work of David Hensel, a LEGO builder who specialises in everything LEGO, from spaceships and architecture to woodland and fantasy scenes. David’s latest creation, a 35mm film SLR styled on the Olympus OM-1 is a small departure but for those of you with long-ish memories, the perfect accompaniment to Ethan […]
Like all good projects, this one began without me even realising it. I didn’t intend for this to become such a long term thing, in fact, I originally hadn’t even intended to make anything in particular at all. What started off as a solo holiday around Italy with a couple of cameras, a flight into […]
I have never used expired film or used a bulk loader until now. Not however for any particular reason, probably just because I simply didn’t feel the need to. I had been given a bulk loader and a handful of reloadable cassettes in a collection of darkroom gear by a retired professional. He no longer […]
I remember the last time I shot on film was in 2008. After which, I switched to digital. There was a long break but I started shooting on film again and was looking for something different. Being an amateur, I was always a Kodak film user in the past, so when I found Kodak VISION3 […]
I managed to grab some time with Lee Gavin, an English film photographer and teacher based in Kent, UK.
Over to you, Lee.
Hi Lee, what’s this picture, then?
Memory – Fuji Fujicolor 200
LG: Having always been fascinated
And this is where my journey of home developing begins! After a couple of disappointments – in rapid succession – of the work of some photo labs, it was time to take full responsibility for all the loosely cut last
It’s a real pleasure to introduce you all to Rob Hawthorn, a photographer who many of you will remember from his stunning travelogue of Yucatan on Kodak AEROCHROME.
Well Rob’s back with something a little different.
My return to film was not a definite decision I made one day, but more of an evolvement of my feeling towards photography.
With great anticipation, I unpacked my order of 5 precious rolls of FERRANIA P30 ALPHA and ventured out to test this film.
Today’s interviewee has been posting video reviews product, guides, manuals for film cameras, information on film stocks and all things analogue on Youtube since 2011 and shows no signs of slowing down any time soon.
Wahey! It’s Ed Worthington aka “The 6 Million P Man” (that’s P as in English pence, not Mike, or the other P word).
It’s a real pleasure to be able to bring you today’s interviewee, Toni Skokovic.
This has been a tough interview to put together. Tough because, as you’ll see below, it’s been an absolute nightmare picking which one of Roger Harrison’s beautiful Fuji Velvia 50 photographs to feature as the cover for this article.
This week’s interview is with talented Montrealian (Montrealite?) Jessica Hobbs.
