I had tried using the Fuji Sensia (100, 200 and 400) and I wanted something new this time.
About 3 or 4 months ago, I was just starting to dabble with using more than just “the cheapest film I could find”. I had tried using Sensia (100, 200 and 400) and I wanted something new. I was in the local film shop and I could see T64 printed on the end of a box behind the counter. I was intrigued by the look of this Fuji film, as it looked different to all the rest.
I wasn’t sure when to use this film as I’d never used anything with an ISO under 100 before. I waited for the perfect day…well what I thought was the perfect day. I loaded her into my Holga and packed out the free space with foam and went to the skate park with some friends.
A couple of days later I had the photos in my hands and was so excited by the results; even if a lot of the shots were a bit over exposed. I was so proud that they were my shots. They were so much better than I had ever imagined.
Since then I have used the Fuji T64 again, although each time I have cross processed it. I will eventually process it normally, but I’m too impatient to have to send it away. Its very fine grain aids it in producing high contrasted images with sharp detail. Many people I have talked to about this film recommend using it only in bright light, whether a sunny day or use a flash with it, however the second time I used this film was at dusk, and the shots were suddenly full with a richer purple/blue colour which I think is nice.
Considered as one of the best 35mm SLR cameras, the Nikon F2 is indeed one of the best experiences on film I’ve ever had. Fully manual and almost impossible to break, this historic camera is really marvelous to use.
My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. March was for caffenol. You have probably heard of the amazing fact that you can develop black and white photos with coffee, sodium, and vitamin C. I had tried this before but with less than stellar results. Somehow, there's always something going wrong. Time to devote a few rolls to caffenol to finally get the hang of it.

Some time ago, my parents-in-law gave me an old Polaroid camera that they used during my wife's childhood. After some investigation, I found out that Polaroid had stopped making instant film. But the factory in Enschedé, the Netherlands had been taken over by The Impossible Project, so I bought a package of fresh film and gave it a try!

Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.
This year marks the 70th anniversary of the publication of one of the most influential photography books ever, "Ballet" by the photographer, art director, and graphic designer Alexey Brodovitch. Brodovitch took a series of photos of classical dance in a very unconventional way, using very slow exposure times, trying to catch the true essence of Russian ballets. For this article, I took a series of photos at the Swing Crash Festival in my city, Como, held in June 2015.
What do you do when you don't have much time in a city like New York but you want to see everything, feel the vibe and be part of the community, even for a short time? Jump on a bike and enjoy what trains, buses and cabs can never give you: be part of the city. Take a camera with you to capture the moments and sights you don't want to forget. I did this with my LC-A 120 and LomoChrome Purple film.

As you may have read in my previous article, I truly fell in love with Lomography when I combined my Fisheye camera with an old Canon AE-1 for magical photographic results. Last summer, I took so many pictures of flowers that it started to become almost boring for me. My waning interest and the coming winter meant that I had to figure out something else to do with my 35mm film.
