What exactly is "pushing" film, and when do you do it? If this is the first time you've heard of this technique, you should check out this helpful short clip by Chicago-based street photographer Chuck Jines!
I’m sure most of us have already heard of the technique of “pushing” film numerous times now, but what exactly is it? As someone who’s just beginning to learn the ropes of film photography, I simply assumed from the term itself that this simply means underexposing the film a stop or two. But as I’ve learned now, I was only half right because “pushing” doesn’t stop there. As explained by street photographer *Chuck Jines*, who runs the GritStreet Photography channel on YouTube, the actual pushing happens in the darkroom, where the developing time is extended to make up for underexposing the film. Jines, armed with his Nikon F2 loaded with Kodak Tri-X 400 ISO, explains pushing film and the reason you should do it in the context of street photography, but I think his tips are applicable in other situations as well!
For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.
While many of us can only dream of working with musicians and photographing them, Angela Izzo's job entails exactly that. Apparently, this is a fulfillment of her own dream that she had when she was younger. In this interview, Izzo talks about her beginnings which, of course, included going to as many shows and festivals as she possibly can; some of her most memorable on-the-job-experiences with the likes of The Doors, Lykke Li, Jack White, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and Chris Robinson Brotherhood; her inspirations and other interests; and her love for film photography and Diana Mini. And to those looking into fulfilling their own dreams of working in the same industry, Izzo also shares helpful advice based on her own experiences.
"Love your camera" is Marika's first rule when it comes to shooting film. Her passion for collecting gear stemmed from a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of testing a variety of film cameras for her friend's shop. Let's all welcome our newcomer of the week from Prague, Czech Republic, analogvision!
