So, Bought Any Film Lately?

2012-10-02 14

In case you missed the memo, the month of October is supposed to be welcomed with a whole lot of film lovin’! What have you done so far?

Did you know that October 1st is International Film Buying Day? While we’re the type of people who think that every day should be a film buying day – and let’s add using while we’re at it – there are times that you simply just can’t (due to bad weather conditions, or bad wallet conditions, or you’re in the verge of dying, or worse, you’re already dead).

But nonetheless, we here at the Manila office would like to share some of our love!

    @geegraphy hehe thx, cost me several hundred Euros though... But with ADOX Art and efke films no longer being produced and Kodak cutting films constantly (now it's my beloved TMax p3200) you gotta do what you gotta do!

  • How to Develop Photos on Stone in a Darkroom

    How to Develop Photos on Stone in a Darkroom

    I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!

  • 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.

    Cast of Dark: Dusky Purple

    By now the Lomography site is like a pail of candied purple. Our confection LomoChrome Purple has produced forests and flower beds the shade of lavender macarons. Hard to resist the fantasy! But lately we have noticed darker, late-afternoon-sun versions. And we like what we see.

    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.

    When someone asks me why I love Burkina Faso so much and what's so special about it, I answer without any hesitation: the people. There's something in this country that connects the people together very strongly. Here, foreign visitors are warmly welcomed. And honestly, I think that the portraits I'm most proud of and that I really love are those shot in Burkina Faso. "Why," you ask?

    Since Alive was founded in 2010 with one mission: to uphold film photography despite the steadily increasing popularity of digital imaging. It aims to provide guidance and information to analogue photography enthusiasts through its website, which has become a platform for showcasing the creativity and techniques of its followers. Since live has also ventured into developing products to bolster the practice of analogue photography and its Bento Film Case has proven to be very useful. Lomography talks to Since Alive’s Wind Hui and designer Stephanie Ho, co-collaborators for Since Alive’s Bento Film Case.
