The Bronica has been described as the poor man’s Hasselblad. That is just wrong, as I hope to demonstrate through this article. When I began my journey back to film photography, I looked at Rolleiflex cameras first, but finally settled on the Hasselblad 500C/M — of which I have two now. I recently decided to […]
Every year from the 13th to the 21st of December, the town of Chichicastenango in the Mayan highlands of Guatemala celebrates its yearly festival. The name of the town is a mouthful, so it’s better known as simply Chichi. The town seems frozen in time honoring a fusion of traditions imposed by the Spanish conquistadors […]
In 2019 Lomography announced the launch of a Kickstarter campaign to fund a brand new film emulsion: LomoChrome Metropolis XR100-400.
In early June it was one of my best friend’s 30th birthday. As part of the weekend’s celebrations, I was invited to Paris as a surprise guest. We were due to meet in Montmartre before heading out by the Seine for a picnic, followed by an evening at the Moulin Rouge. I flew over with […]
Most people will never see, hold, or use the Bronica S2A’s Nikon Nikkor-Q 25CM f/4 lens. In fact, Tony Hilton’s authoritative Bronica S2A book “Bronica: The Early History and Definitive Collector’s Guide” lists only five known copies.
I was born in Charleroi, Belgium. This city had a long and successful past of coal mining and is therefore scattered with coal heaps.
“What on earth had I been thinking?” This is the question that I asked myself from the moment that I dropped the roll of film off at the lab, until the moment that I had picked it up.
Welcome to a fresh instalment of my “…this is why I shoot film” series!
I’ve been looking for a 120 ISO 400 colour film for a pinhole based project that I have in mind and whilst there is a good range of black and white and 35mm, choices are fairly limited for 120
I was recently tempted to get into medium format more seriously and began around looking for the camera that would allow me to do so.
Merry Christmas to everyone celebrating today!
A few weeks ago, Nils suggested putting together an unorthodox camera/film review that he felt would be useful to readers of EMULSIVE. He wasn’t joking, it was anything but orthodox.
Today I’m going to be talking a little about my Bronica ETRSi kit, a camera I came to after my first proper step into film photography with a Bronica ETRC (I discount my Holga for obvious reasons, although I had
Over the past couple of summers I’ve been experimenting a bit with infrared photography. I’ve always been intrigued by the alienating look that infrared images can give you.
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome! I’ve been waiting for today’s interviewee for a while (mostly my fault). Now he’s here, I’m going to zip it and hand over to him.
Hello again, it’s The 6 Million P Man here back after my review of the Yashica-D with another offering from my (not quite extensive but close enough) camera collection, another delight of the medium format variety, the Zenza Bronica S2A.
I feel lucky to have grown up with film being my only option to create a photograph. It wasn’t until I travelled through India in 1992, that the world through a viewfinder opened up to me.
Even if you have a short memory, you’ll remember today’s interviewee from their guest post on experimental development with mouthwash, orange juice and a whole bunch of other household goods;
Finally! That’s all I’m going to say about today’s interview.
If you believe when today’s photographer says he’s only been shooting film for the past four or five years, you’re in the minority.
