  1. Scream Phoenix: My First Roll of Harman Phoenix 200

    2024-01-09 05:48:37 UTC

    I’ve said it before, I’m not a “review” guy. I feel no compulsion to recount in excruciating detail all the technical minutiae of anything. Either I like something or I don’t, and I don’t mind briefly explaining why.  Harman Phoenix 200 35mm color film is a thing I like very…

  3. Play This Only at Night: Cinestill 800T +2

    2021-12-31 05:51:37 UTC

    I loaded a roll of Cinestill 800T into my Bronica SQ-A and went for a night stroll. I metered for 3200 (using a handheld meter). I pushed two stops in development (C-41). Here’s some of what I got. Follow my (almost, but not quite) daily film photography posts on Instagram.

  4. Expired Film Never Looked So Good

    2019-10-08 23:57:07 UTC

    You know what’s great about digital cameras? They have an LCD screen that lets you see what your shots look like the second after you take them You know what’s great about film cameras? They don’t have LCD screens. Maybe “great” isn’t the appropriate word. Perhaps “fun” is more suitable.…

  5. She Is

    She is greater than the sum of her parts. All photos: Ilford FP4+ | HC-110 (B) | Olympus OM-2n Visit me on Instagram for more film content.

  6. A Little Rain, Part 1

    2019-06-20 04:45:42 UTC

    The weather in NYC has been what some might consider depressing – cloudy, rainy, foggy, all around gloomy. I might be inclined to agree if I weren’t actually enjoying all this grayness. I’ve said it before – bad weather is fun for photographers Ilford Delta 400 | Minolta Maxxum 600si …

  7. Film Photography: Even When It Goes Wrong It Looks Alright

    2019-03-23 05:46:28 UTC

    This is sort of an addendum to my previous post about my Minolta XE-7’s dead light seals. My Minolta XD5 is suffering a similar scourge, yet I remain unmoved to do anything about it. So, here I am again sharing shots that turned out all wrong…but I love them so…

  8. Let The Sunshine In: Light Leaks & My Minolta XE-7

    2019-03-15 01:19:53 UTC

    The Minolta XE-7 is one of my favorite cameras. When it comes to film cameras, I have a soft spot for Minolta for some reason and the XE-7 sits near the top of the heap. It’s amazingly sturdy and it’s heavy. And that shutter is oh so satisfying to click…

  9. Kodak Gold Is Gold

    2019-03-13 19:08:00 UTC

    I don’t really do reviews. If I like something, I’ll tell someone why I like it. If I don’t like something…same thing. I don’t know why that should take 6 pages or a 35 minute video. Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate the people who are good at providing exhaustive…

  10. So Cinematic: My DIY Experience With Kodak Vision3 Film

    2019-03-03 04:49:00 UTC

    I’ve shot a few rolls of CineStill color film (both the 50D and 800T) and I really like the results. It’s not film I shoot regularly since I consider it a tad expensive, but I like to splurge every now and then I also like DIY stuff. That’s why I…

  11. Oculus800

    2018-09-09 01:58:00 UTC

    Another round of photos created at the Oculus. This time all taken on Ilford HP5+ film (at 800 ASA), shot with a Minolta XD-5 and Minolta 28mm f/2.8. Developed in HC-110, dilution E. For more film photography, follow me on Instagram.

  12. Ilford HP5+ for Architecture? Yes, Please

    2018-07-07 04:36:27 UTC

    Normally when I shoot architecture (outdoor) on film I use a slower film. One of my favorites for this task – no, my very favorite – is Rollei Retro 80s. I also liked Acros 100, but we know how that story has played out The last time I had the…

  13. Dark Winter

    2018-03-13 06:13:10 UTC

    Never too boldly declare winter in New York to be “over” any time before April. You’ll probably be wrong. Every self-respecting New Yorker know this, so I guess I’m just putting it out there for recent transplants and tourists. To bolster my assertion, I present to you a series of…

  14. The Magic of Ilford HP5+ Pushed to 1600

    2018-03-01 07:15:51 UTC

    I love contrasty black and white, so when it comes to film photography I tend to prefer films like Rollei Retro 80S and Fujifilm Acros 100 (I just hate the curl). I rarely push film, but I recently shot a roll of Ilford HP5+ and for no good reason decided…

  15. Good Times with Ilford SFX 200 B&W Film

    2017-04-25 19:28:11 UTC

    Oh, Ilford SFX 200, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways Ok, I’m not going to actually count the ways. Just know that I do love this quasi-infrared black and white film. SFX 200 often comes up in conversations about infrared film and almost just as frequently…

  16. One for the Money: Agfa Vista Plus 200

    2017-04-08 06:39:11 UTC

    Kodak gets all the love: Portra 160 and 400, Ektar 100, Tri-X 400. And if it’s not Kodak, it’s Ilford and Fujifilm that get to bask in the warm glow of film emulsion prestige. Those are indeed big names and they have unquestionably earned their reputations as great film manufacturers…

  17. Ode to the Olympus XA

    2017-04-06 02:18:00 UTC

    The Olympus XA is a classic. It is a marvel of minimalist design and, short of a flash sync port or hot shoe, is equipped with everything you need for a day of shooting. Keep in mind that the XA is a 35mm camera first introduced in 1979; that context…
