LomoChrome Metropolis – First Roll Fun — James Cockroft

When Lomography announced their new Metropolis film, I jumped on it. But when it arrived, I wasn’t feeling too into shooting much, so I stuck it all in the refrigerator. Then, when I finally built the piece of garbage known as the LomoMod no.1 and loaded some 120 Metropolis into it, I decided I should…

Photo Of The Week 6/14/20

Do you hear a voice in the back of your head calling your name? Who is it you ask? It is the Elder Gods calling you to The Blood Dome to honor HFH Gigi and The Shitty Camera Challenge. Today, we dig deep in the brown and pull up a fecalrific #ShittyCameraChallenge tweet as our Photo Of The Week.

Have you ever eaten too many beets, watched too many episodes of Portlandia, and / or consumed an entire can of cherry pie filling? If you answered yes to any of those questions, you understand the beauty of this photo by Curtis Joe Walker. The Lomo Instant Wide is pushing it a little bit in terms of fecalness but I owned one and left it in my car trunk for 3 years so it definitely does qualify as shitty.

#BelieveInFilm is an internationally acclaimed collective of people who maintain high fiber diets and who work together to create a future for film photography. #ShittyCameraChallenge is a cult run by cats and is sponsored by the number 2.

Photo Of The Week 5/31/20

This week we asked acclaimed photographer Marisa to wade into the warm waters of elegance and pluck a tweet from the #BelieveInFilm sea of success.

It’s a telling reflection of our current times. Subject matter always catches my eye before anything else when viewing an image and this image (for me) is both harrowing and humorous at the same time.

Thanks Marisa!

The Leica M6 TTL and Hillvale Holiday 200 Film — Natalie Smart Film Photography

Who has tried Hilvale Holiday 200 film?

Whilst on holiday in Tenerife in December last year, I decided to also take the Hillvale Holiday colour film with me. This film is all the way from Australia and it was sitting in my film stash since I received it in my Emulsive secret santa gift for Christmas 2018. I used this film during […]The Leica M6 TTL and Hillvale Holiday 200 Film — Natalie Smart Film Photography

Brian Henry – #BelieveInFilm Interview

I discovered the photography of Brian Henry while visiting urban exploration forums and his instant film skills inspired me to buy my own instant camera. It was a packfilm camera I called Eddie and helped me launch #BelieveInFilm. I am so happy he was willing to answer a few of my questions.

Photo Of The Week 5/17/20

This week we invited Mark aka 3eyedMonster to raft down a river of photographic triumph and choose our photo of the week. Mark won our giveaway with Ultrafine so triumph is one of his competencies.

Being a primarily pinhole photographer, even I assumed I would choose a lensless exposure for this week’s image. I nearly did till I started seeing these wonderful panoramic exposures by Karin Lizana. After following her, it appears these are just from her very first roll with this Horizon Perfekt.
If pinhole is my primary interest, than panorama is my second. This artist certainly has an eye for indoor panorama with the complex lighting and reflections, my eyes are busy taking in the light on all the surfaces.

Great job Mark!

Photo Of The Week 5/10/20

We invited noted eleganteur and Leica M5 mom Kimmiechem2 to luxuriate in a buffet of excellence and pick our Photo Of The Week.

This week’s Photo of the Week is a collection of landscape photographs by Henrik Emtkjær Hansen. Stunning in its starkness and soothing geometry, the lines from one landscape lead us to the next and the absence of people in the images gives the collection a latent storytelling quality. His work can be found on IG & Twitter – @henrikemtkj.
