Well, they are if you get to shoot a beautiful model! So this was just a little while ago when I had the fortune of taking a few photographs of Michelle. We had fun, and I never shot inside a … Continue reading Equicolor. What Color?
So now you’ve all read up on what film is, don’t you think it’s time to see how it’s made? And no, not one of those (yet informative) corny video’s produced these days on how nuts and bolts are manufactured, but … Continue reading What Is Film? Part 2
What I had hoped would be an easy to work with, widely available and cheap, black & white film turned out to be just cheap. I’ve finished shooting a little test roll with this Kentmere 100 film and I am … Continue reading Kentmere No More
This is something truly horrific. Perhaps it’s me, perhaps it’s the film. It’s not the camera, and probably not the lab, they’re good at what they do. So I’m leaning towards the film. Modern-day produced black and white medium format film, made in China. And it shows. It’s horrid. The backing paper shows, and in a gory, grainy & gruesome way. Which is a pity because behind all that garbage hides a sharp and contrasty film. Film used: Shanghai GP3 100, ✟ 2014. Camera used: Yashica Mat 124G TLR. What to do? I’m trashing the rest of this film I have in … Continue reading Badly Made In China
It’s half-way during the week and my fingers start itching again. I’d like to get out, even in this horrible grey weather, and do some street shooting. Let’s call this Mission #01. Question: what film to bring? Continue reading Mission #01
Expired film is bad film. Or that’s what I hear a lot. And a great number of times that’s quite a true statement. But not because of the film. The film didn’t do anything. It just is. Mostly it’s due to … Continue reading What Is Expired Film?
That season is coming and your granny is still waiting for your portrait. Or was it your aunt who, in not so eloquent terms after asking 16 previous times, now demands that family picture you promised to have made for her? Well no worries, if you’re quick you might just be able to fix that boo-boo you made.. Continue reading Gift Your Portrait
Possibly attempting to get more people to shoot with film, there’s some interesting stuff to be found online. Even if it’s just to get you mildly interested. Like this short clip, from ‘Analog – stories of film photography‘. Which is … Continue reading Julian Martin
Haven’t you always wanted to know? Well, Wikipedia comes to the rescue. Because all is true on Wiki, non? This article is actually very informative, if you’d like to learn what actually makes a roll of film. “Photographic film is … Continue reading What Is Film?
From back in the days where it was hard to keep a sane mind. Big city (love) life and small town wanting all wrapped up in one. Closer to nature though, so that’s a plus. Photographed on Tri-X which one simply just does not let expire. Film used: Kodak Tri-X 400, ♥ 2014. Camera used: Yashica Mat 124G TLR. Continue reading Tri-X To The Rescue

I’m keeping it because I like it. Those few Polaroids I shot a while ago. I’m not planning on shooting any new ones, not at the cost of $5 per image. But these I am happy with and they mean something to me. See the whole set in my portfolio. Continue reading Impossible Love
I’m posting full rolls of (mostly expired) medium format film I exposed while walking around, somewhere. Just for the hell of it. I like looking down through my Yashica and see the world from a different perspective. And I like trying out expired rolls of film, so it’s a win-win for me. First off is a roll of Agfa Ultracolor 50 that expired in 1999. Not that you could tell. Film used: Agfa Ultracolor 50, ✟ 1999. Camera used: Yashica Mat 124G TLR. Continue reading In Glorious Ultracolor
