EMULSIVE 52 Rolls 2016 – Week 18-21 update

I started off my last 52 Rolls update saying I was BORED. Well, by the time week 18 (May 2-8, 2016) rolled around, not much had changed. Well…maybe a little. It’s easy to forget that whilst I remain the faceless, er…face of EMULSIVE, I’m still a photographer just like you. That means that sometimes I get…

Weeks 17-19 continued: Carry on Canaries

As you may have read previously, I’m just back from the island of Tenerife where I shot 4 rolls of Ektar and a couple of Neopan to add to the project. I locked myself away in a darkened garage to process the Acros on the day we got back, only to find that I had…

Weeks 17-19: Tenerife (Ektar Thump)

My holidays usually involve sleeping in uncomfortable places, being hungry, in danger and often far from people. I’m likely to be camping, kayaking, riding, walking and generally exerting myself. (To give you an idea, here’s a video I put together of a trip to Skye the year before last). I usually get back to work shattered but…

EMULSIVE - 52 Rolls: Week 01-05

EMULSIVE – Week 01-05 2016 update

Hello one and all! It’s been some time coming but I’m ready to share my 52 Rolls work to date. Hope you’re in a forgiving mood. I made a resolution this year to not shoot anything aside from some slide and infrared film at box speed. What I should have said, is that I wouldn’t…

Week #34 Swan Market

In week 34 I visited the Rotterdam Swan Market. Rotterdam has been a boring city for quite a few years, but lately people are organising all kinds of fun and interesting things, such as this Swan Market. It’s a place where people can sell homemade food, cakes, clothing and all kinds of other stuff. There…

Roll 43_ October Pinhole Outing

For our October outing we went back to the Pumpkin Patch on Sauvie Island with a bag of masks and our pinhole cameras. The morning started with two of us taking public transportation to the Arbor Lodge Coffee house in North Portland on Rosa Parkway. What a charming place, great coffee and cinnamon rolls and…

Who said there is no colour in the bush?

Early in September the wildflowers start to blossom at Barren Grounds Nature Reserve. It is a windswept plateau covered in dense thickets, but in spring comes alive with colour and bird life. On the day we were there it was overcast with occasional showers passing through. The only others around, apart from us taking photographs,…

Week 30 – Pentax K1000 and Kodak Ektar 100

The Pentax K1000 was my first film camera and I have a great deal of affection for it. I hadn’t used it since last year so decided to use it in week 30. While the results were just fine and it was a pleasure to use my old friend, I couldn’t help but think how…

Week 29 – Bronica ETRS with Kodak Ektar & Ilford Delta 100

In week 29, my husband and I traveled to Cincinnati, Ohio to attend a wedding and visit some friends. Taken on the drive to Cincinnati. While in Cincy, I visited Spring Grove Cemetery, a very large and impressive historic cemetery founded near the same time as Elmwood, where I’m serving as photographer-in-residence this year. Spring…
