    At the Funfair with my Horizon Perfekt

    Every year my city Como hosts, for the Easter period, a great fun fair. This is a great occasion to test a camera, to make experiments with films, to have fun and to photograph people while also having fun! This year, I used my gem, the wonderful Horizon Perfekt (that I bought from the Lomography Online Shop) loaded with a timeless film, a Kodak Tri-X 400 developed, as usually for b/w, by myself. Read more after the jump!

    Lomographer kdstevens Shoots With A Petzval Lens

    What's made of brass, takes photos, and is 130 years old? Why, an original Petzval lens, of course! Lomographer @kdstevens tried his luck with the archaic optic instrument on a 50-year-old camera with 20-years-expired film and it resulted in a great photo!

    Kodak 400TX: Bundles of Atmosphere with My First B&W Roll Ever!

    This was the first ever roll of black and white film that I had used. I was a bit worried about not being able to achieve the results I've seen with black and white films by other people. But, to my surprise, I was definitely happy with the results: moody, dramatic, and a little creepy. Everything one could ask for.

    Kodak T-Max 400 35mm Versus the Competition

    Back in May 2011 I reviewed Kodak T-Max 400 and praised its qualities with barely a bad word to say. I thought it would be interesting now to do a retrospective review and compare it to some other black and white film I've since had the chance to use.

    3-Stop Push of Kodak Tri-x in Sprint Developer

    Pushing and shooting film in low light situations has it's benefits, but developing the film can be more of a gamble than anything else, especially with a developer that does not recommend itself to be used for more than a 2 stop push.

    Kodak Tri-x 400 35mm

    A great film for both outdoors and indoors shooting! Quite grainy and gritty but that adds a nice feel to it. If you haven't shot black and white before, this film makes a great start for it, with its pleasing results.

    Kodak 400TX

    The renowned Kodak 400TX is a high-speed panchromatic film released in 1954 for 35mm and 120mm format. Perfect for scenarios that require good DOF and fast shutter speeds. It is idyllic for push processing and for extending the distance range for flash pictures.
