    My Year in Analogue: My 2014 Through the Letters of the Alphabet

    In this article, I'll show you my 2014 in analogue through the letters of the alphabet. All these photos were taken in the streets of my city, Como, or in close proximity (a few kilometers away from it), mainly during public or sporting events, and all in black and white.

    Happenings on Film: At the Start of the Tour of Lombardy with My Fed 3

    This month, after waiting for three years, my city Como hosted the Tour of Lombardy, an important event in the male elite road cycling tour. With my Fed 3 loaded with black and white film and equipped with ultra sharp Industar 50/3.5 lens, I documented the parade of cyclists who went to the starting line after they registered.

    Fresh from My Darkroom: The First Game of the New Rugby Season

    Last Sunday, the local rugby team Rugby Como played the first match of the 2014-1025 season. Rugby is my favorite sport to photograph, and for some years I've been documenting almost every home match of this young team. This time I used a 1959 Zorki 5 camera with a vintage 1958 Industar-50 lens loaded with a timeless film, the Ilford HP5+ developed in a century-old developer, the mythical Rodinal. Take a look after the jump!

    A Salute to the Masters: Football (A Tribute to Lothar Rübelt)

    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!

With our eager eyes and an LC-A camera, we headed out with snowboarder Orla Doolin to the Burton Stash in Morzine one sunny Sunday morning... and here is the snowboarding we snapped.

    Olympic Portraits Shot Using Century-Old Petzval Lens

    These portraits by L.A. Times photographer Jay L. Clendenin are interesting not just because they were shot using a large-format film camera outfitted with antique doublet lenses (possibly from 1840!), but also because he juxtaposed them with his colored digital captures. Which do you like better: old or new?
