I’ve used my Olympus XA so slowly over the last few months that I only recently developed a roll with some of the images I made with it while in Sofia, Bulgaria over Christmas 2020 last year. I still use the XA for snapshot, point-and-shoot colour images, which in Bulgaria left me with quite muted […]

Two street photographers make their case for their preferred wide-angle focal length, explaining what works to fulfill their respective vision.
“Of course they are..” I remember thinking to myself as I read the headline that Agfa Vista films were being discontinued. Why?

My first of roll of film for the new year 2020: a fresh roll of ILFORD PAN 100 all used up in one day with a camera I’ve never used before. This was January’s commitment to the new year’s resolution I’ve signed up for. That resolution is to shoot one roll of film per month. […]
One of the things I tried while in India was to set myself a simple challenge: to shoot a “perfect” roll of 36 exposures.
The camera shop that I frequent in Toronto — Downtown Camera — recently relocated into a fresh, new space down the block from where it had long established itself as a staple of Toronto’s photography community. To celebrate this move, DC sold some “Grand Opening Mystery Boxes” in limited quantities. I purchased a 35mm box and […]
I work as a busy professional in Downtown Toronto and had been in desperate need of something meaningful outside of my work to get re-centered and reconnect to the moment. Though I had started shooting analog photography in and around 2003 with a Nikon F65, with the exception of some fun toy camera photography, I […]

“High ISO color negative films are rare and expensive, period.”
That’s what I saved in my mind for years, and then used to skip the wish to shoot that gold dust – except for special events like the Berlin Light

Over to you, David.
Today we’re sitting down with She Shoots Film founding member and Film Shooters Collective contributor, Lucy Wainright.
Lucy has a wonderful mix of styles that sit somewhere between playful, abstract and experimental.
Today we managed to wedge ourselves into the hectic life of Bill McCarroll;
