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.

This article is dedicated to the Hungarian-American photographer Cornell Capa, brother of the famous Magnum reporter Robert, and to his great humanitarian and social contributions in educating and changing the world. Capa's photos depict genuine human feelings, hope, and solidarity, and avoid commercial cynicism or disinterested formalism. I write this tribute facing a delicate argument: mental disability.

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!
