I always enjoy flipping through surf magazines and looking at the amazing photos of beaches and massive waves. Transworld Surf magazine did a photo issue in the month of July. In it are some great photos and photos of great cameras!
I’ve noticed an increasing amount of interest/re-interest in film in surfers and surf photographers. Usually if I flip through a surf magazine, there is at least a page or two where you can spot an analogue camera as a prop or a photo shot with film.
The July 2012 Transworld Surf magazine was a Photo Book edition:
Among the beautiful photographs were photos where a vintage camera was included. Seeing photos like these always make me happy that I opened the magazine:
I also stumbled on a page that was entertaining and interesting; a page called Sh*t Surf Photographers Say:
“There is nobody to shoot around here.”
“If I could, I’d only shoot film.”
“Nobody shoots film anymore, that’s why I do.”
“Do you have any wetsuits with brighter colors?”
“Can you start trying some airs?”
“The old Canons were so much better.”
“Can’t you guys just fix it in Photoshop?”
“What settings are you on?”
“I’m just gonna shoot from land today.”
“My sensor is dirty. I’m never out of focus.”
“This is a cover for sure.”
“Did you get my invoice from last issue yet?
Personally, I think film is making a comeback, so keep shooting!
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.

What's so great about analog photography? You never know what you will get in the end. Not every film let all of my photos look perfect, some fail, too. Maybe some of you experienced the same. After trying out several film soups and chemicals I finally discovered the easiest and quickest way: chlorine!

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.
