Week 19: Fuji Instax in the 1940’s

I thought I’d cut myself some slack this for this week and take the Fuji Instax along to work, of sorts.  Handily, the Little Bird SOS studio is at Greenacres, at the North end of the Great Central Railway and there’s often events going on outside the door, so Lisa and I opened the shop…

Week 18: Leicester Riverside Festival…and the EU

Well, this morning I opened my eyes in an unfamiliar bed and gradually remembered that I should really check my phone, for something momentous had been happening overnight and the results were due. And so I checked.  And I felt disappointment.  I didn’t even cheer when our reviled PM resigned – just feared the further…

Roll 18 – The Jokers.

One weekend a month means a visit to my local music venue ‘The District’ in Pontypridd. I’ve been shooting there for well over a year now, but for some reason only on digital. Time to have a go shooting film. I love the look of black and white concert photography but I had no Ilford in the fridge.…

[Eben] Roll 13 – ACROS Portraits

This was a quick roll of portraits I made of family and friends with my Yashica-MAT LM. I think this was my second roll of Fujifilm Neopan ACROS 100, stand developed in Rodinal 1:100. The more I use the Rodinal stand development method, the less I want to go back to D-76. Not only do…

52:500c – Week 24 – The City that Works

I was so excited to be able to include Chicago, one of my three favourite American cities in this year’s project. With some of the amazing architecture in The Loop and one of my favourite skylines ever. But then I got thrown for a bit of a loop. My plan had been to get to…

Power Tool Drag Races and an XA2

A few weeks ago was the annual Georgetown Carnival, and one of the events is the Power Tool Drag Races put on by HazardFactory.    I shoot this every year, and this year I brought along an Olympus XA2 with a roll of color film in it.   I meant to shoot more, but it was a…

Week 23: Paris under water

I returned from Lisbon on the Saturday afternoon to find the Seine at its highest level in more than 30 years.  But it was no longer rising. So I postponed my trip to Bièvres for the photo fair, which I was curious to visit (I have never been there) and instead took the métro to…

EMULSIVE – Week 14-17 2016 update

I’m bored. Photographically, that pretty much sums up the past few months for me. Yes I know it’s probably not best to start off this update post with a lamenting and needy statement but there it is. Can’t take it back now. I guess it’s partly because the weather has been so unpredictable lately that…

[raulpc] week 20 – Me and my DIY 11×14 Camera…

…seen in 4×5! Another adventure, to build a ULF 11×14 camera. These are always expensive cameras, in whatever way, so I thought, why not build one? That was the dream start. I already had a lens, the Nikkor-W 360mm, that I found out was covering 11×14 (diagonal 447mm), with an image circle at f/22 of…
