All photography fans have heard about photokina, the world’s greatest fair for photography and imaging. If you’re a die hard photographer as a hobby or as a professional, you definitely can’t afford to miss this biennial fair!

Hundreds of thousands of visitors come to visit Cologne, Germany every other year to keep themselves up-to-date with the latest trends in the photography industry. If you’re not there for the research, come for the fun!

    Tipster: DIY X-Pro Redscale

    Browsing through the Lomography website, you can find a lot of redscale shots, which are all done on color negative films. I asked myself if it’s possible to redscale a slide or chrome film and then cross process it. (And yes, it is.) In this tipster I’m going to teach you how to create the bloodiest homemade redscale film I've ever come across.

  • Long Exposures Around Europe with the Minitar-1 Art Lens

    Long Exposures Around Europe with the Minitar-1 Art Lens

    One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.
