When someone from Saint Petersburg Russia sends you a few rolls of film, I think they have to be shot with something interesting. Thanks to my EMULSIVE Secret Santa last December 2019 (@gyrdin) for these gifts. My smile reached up to my ears when I opened up the package and saw those bunch of BW […]
Since I got into film photography after stumbling across some cheap point ‘n’ shoot cameras in a UK charity shop a few years back, my main focus has been to try as many different film stocks as I can get through. Usually in the Yashica Electro GSN that I picked up a few months later. […]
This small article was born from a meeting, that of my beautiful Yashica-MAT 124 G, just returned from a CLA by a famous American repairman specializing in these pretty cameras and a film that I had not yet seen, nor touched with my hands. We spent 2020 New Year in Brighton, a charming British city […]
I’m constantly getting back to this thought and feel it’s about time to share something with you that comes very close to my inner monologue. You have been warned. I highly doubt that we all have the same motivations to take photographs but it is interesting to explore my own situation and hear your experience, […]
Over the last few years, I have become a landscape photographer. It was not a conscious choice but now I embrace it.
Last summer my girlfriend and I went on a 14-day trip to Iceland. I Packed four Cameras, a Yashica-635, Leica P, Olympus MJU, and Sony A7R II, along with three types of films: Kodak Portra 400, Fujifilm Velvia (RVP), and Kodak T-MAX 400 but the real JAM was my original Fujifilm FUJICHROME Velvia (RVP). a […]
The Kayen and the Kayah. Two groups of people who live in the south-east of Myanmar, formally known as Burma. Living in the rich mountainous landscapes full of teak and minerals, together with many other subgroups they are named the Karenni… It feels like time has stood still in this part of the world. A […]
I first came across today’s interviewee back in December 2019 after she posted a video messing around with Kodak Gold in Barcelona. Thanks to that quick DM and ensuing chat, I’ve finally been able to get her to grace these pages as interviewee #214. Ladies and gents, this is Ejatu Shaw. Hi Ejatu, what’s this […]
I have been stuck in a rut with my film photography. I used to shoot anything and everything until I recently started working on a couple of series for my portfolio. Now I find myself being so selective with what I am shooting, that I don’t actually shoot much. So I got a Yashica Mat […]
I was loading film in my Hasselblad on a street bench in Prague when an old man approached me. He used to be a professional photographer back in the day, and he was curious about my camera. Coincidentally, his freezer had died a few days before, and there were some 120 rolls that he was […]
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 […]
Welcome to the twelfth and final quick camera review for my upcoming 12-camera 35mm camera mega test. In this series, I’ll be comparing image quality, durability, speed and overall performance for cameras ranging from the very high end of the 35mm compact camera world to the very low – or close to it. I’ll be […]
Before I actually start writing about the film I want to make a disclaimer which some of you may think is unnecessary, however I do not want to hurt any feelings and that’s why I want to make clear
I’ve known today’s interviewee online for a few years now, and even had the pleasure of meeting her back in 2018*.
A while ago I was involved in a Twitter conversation about what scene from a movie you wish you could have shot yourself, or wish you could replicate.
On Valentine’s Day 2018, I stopped by my school’s photo lab on a whim and was unexpectedly treated to blindly pick from a grab bag of various films.
I’ve been stuck in my house filling orders for my Kickstarter campaign for the CAMERADACTYL 4×5 Field Camera, mostly just babysitting printers, changing filaments and adjusting extruders every few hours.
This camera came out of left field to me. I have run the #halfframeclub for almost 2 years, but this camera never fit my ideal of what a half frame cameras should be.
“You can have it for £40, but the meter’s broken, so it’s sold as seen.
