I’ll be writing up my 52 Rolls summary in the next week or so, but suffice to say that shooting so much film through 2016 has been a complete game-changer. When I read about the project (on Emulsive) in Poland the week before last New Year, I couldn’t have imagined that it would have become […]
Another post from my 52 Rolls project – shooting film 52 weeks a year… Two rolls for the price of one in this post (numbers 14 and 15 of the year already) but shot over the course of a couple of days and on a single trip, so I though I’d combine them.
Originally written for the 35mmc website. At some point last week, I saw Hamish’s tantalising pictures on social media of ten boxes containing the new 7Artisans, 50mm lenses that he had for sale. It’s a lens that’s been causing quite a stir since its launch, due to the winning formula of being an M-mount 50mm, […]
A quick trot around one of my favourite places with the ladies and a very expired roll of Velvia 100F.
A trip to the Nottingham Contemporary gallery to see the excellent ‘States of America’ show coincided with the first shoot week of the Emulsive Film #DeltaDefJam, so I took along my Leica and a roll of Ilford Delta 100 Pro…

Last week sometime, I saw the following tweet from Ade of the Sunny16 Podcast. Has anyone ever done a blind test on 120 vs 35mm film? As in can you tell which is which? @EMULSIVEfilm #Believeinfilm — Sunny 16 Podcast (@sunny16podcast) August 25, 2017 While I often try to work out what kit has been […]
This post is made up of pictures taken over a couple of rolls, taken over a couple of weekends. I’d used Ilford FP4+ once or twice over the years, but it wasn’t until last year’s FP4 Parties that I began to appreciate its abilities.
Back in June, I took a walk around Leicester’s cultural quarter to admire some of the new street art that was created during the ‘Bring the Paint’ festival of the previous month.
A couple of weeks ago, an old friend called in to drop off a box of old Russian rangefinders that had been languishing in his loft. As I already own a rangefinder or two, I decided to offer these cameras to the @EMULSIVEfilm community in exchange for ‘some film’. I put no limit on what […]
