Why is it the long-lost black and white film? Because there's no more of this brilliant film in Indonesia! I bought this film for the first time in 2008 and from a friend who stayed in Surabaya so he had to send the films to Bandung. I just can't find any ERA Shantou these days. I will remember this film always.
So back then in 2008, I just bought the LC-A+ RL and for the love of black and white lomography, I decided to put the ERA Shantou into my LC-A+.
Pure magic! I just love the result! Those kind of black and white images are the black and white images that I always wanted. ERA Shantou and Lomo LC-A+ are best buddies! Wohoo! I wonder when I can try those two again.
The shots above I took it with Canon AE-1. I really miss using ERA Shantou, seriously. If somebody out there have or have seen an ERA Shantou film, please tell me. I want to use it again.
It’s black and white with fine grain, super fine I must say, so I was so surprised! ERA Shantou gives me that classic black and white images that I always see on the photography book or magazine.
So who wants to try out the ERA Shantou black and white film? If you found one, please enjoy it and have fun with it!
Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.
Last Sunday, a great yoga event was held in Cernobbio, a small tourist town near the city of Como. Local association Breathe Como made a performance of power yoga exercises to raise funds for Africa. I developed the film a few days ago, and today I'll show the photos to you! I call this "Fresh From My Darkroom" because I developed the black and white films by myself! Take a look!
This is a tribute to a great Austrian sports photographer, Lothar Rübelt. In an era with no high speed films available, he was able to immortalize wonderful moments in sports - from diving to gymnastics and football. In creating this tribute, I took a series of photos of an amateur football match using expired black and white film developed using an uncommon chemical. Take a look after the jump!
Stop bath is a type of chemical used in the darkroom for processing black and white film, aptly named as such because it halts the development of the images. In this case, stop bath is also part of the title that Korean analogue street photographer <b><a href="http://instagram.com/sooeatsyourstreetforbreakfast">Soomin Yim</a></b> has given her body of work, "Stop Bath the City," to represent the forgotten faces of people in the city amid rapid modernization, captured and immortalized on black and white film.
In the week preceding the elections for the European Parliament, several political rallies were held in Como. As with all other public events in my city I documented one of these rallies, this time using a Russian film camera Zorki 6 loaded with a black and white film roll. Take a look!
