TRIP – Cambridge 2015

CAMERA: Olympus Trip 35 FILM: Agfa Vista 200 On a cold winters day in 2015 I travelled to Cambridge for the first time, taking a shaky hand and a low film speed with me. I think the allure of £1 film was misguided, and many of my rolls of Agfa Vista 200 came out withContinue reading “TRIP – Cambridge 2015”

ARCHIVE – Photograms

I fell in love with film when I was in high school. I was lucky enough to be taught in the darkroom, reciting aperture and shutter speeds as a class for hours and fumbling around in the dark trying to find the test strip I just dropped. It was a place where my passion forContinue reading “ARCHIVE – Photograms”

FILM – Polaroid SX-70 Time Zero

CAMERA: Polaroid SX-70 Sonar Autofocus FILM: Polaroid Time Zero Instant Film I bought my Polaroid camera on eBay in December 2007, just months before Polaroid announced they were shutting down their instant film production, so I was disappointed to say the least. However, my old SX-70 came with 6 shots in camera and 1 boxContinue reading “FILM – Polaroid SX-70 Time Zero”

Leica M3 & Kodak Ultramax 400

CAMERA: Leica M3 FILM: Kodak Ultramax 400 When I was lent the Leica M3 I was so excited by the results I had in black and white that I wasn’t sure that it would do colour as wonderfully. Oh, how I proved myself wrong! I went to one of the usual places I go whenContinue reading “Leica M3 & Kodak Ultramax 400”

PLACES – London Docklands

CAMERA: Olympus Trip 35 FILM: Fomapan 400 Having lived mostly in the west of London since I moved here 4 years ago, the east of London is somewhere I only travel to if I have a lot of time. For a city that hosts an extensive transport system it always seems to be a massiveContinue reading “PLACES – London Docklands”

CAMERA – Lomokino

CAMERA: Lomography Lomokino FILM: Kentmere 400 When the Lomokino was first announced I was excited, and I backed it on Kickstarter. When it arrived I tried it a few times, after which it sat on my shelf collecting dust for years. I found it to be difficult to handle, mostly because they then added aContinue reading “CAMERA – Lomokino”

CAMERA: Olympus Trip 35, Holga 120CFN FILM: Fomapan 400, Kodak Portra 400 Ghent may not be high on everyone’s list of places to visit, but as someone who has studied art history I knew I wanted to visit it for a while.

INSTAX 2017 no.6

CAMERA: Fuji Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic FILM: Fuji Instax Mini colour Another weekend, another aimless wander. This time I was a bit more successful and took many more photos than expected.

ARCHIVE – Baby’s first film camera

Throw your minds back to 2007, and how difficult it was to buy anything online in Australia. Now imagine that you are 16 and don’t have a credit card but you really want this weird plastic camera that sounds like it was named after a Swedish milkmaid. That was me, looking to get a HolgaContinue reading “ARCHIVE – Baby’s first film camera”

CAMERA: Holga 120 CFN, Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic FILM: Kodak Portra 400, Instax Mini colour film Brighton was one of those places that people talked about all the time and is super easy to get to from London, yet it took me over 3.5 years of living here to actually get down there.
