I'll leave you with my tips for successfully creating double exposures, just after the jump!

    Maco TS Eagle 400 AQS: A Graphic Novel

    This must be one of the craziest monochromatic emulsions I came across with. Not only the title is a promise of an adventure, but the pictures are as well. In most black and white films that I have used, objects in the distance become darker. With the Eagle, the darkness flies away. In fact, it's the other way around. The further the object is away from the lens, the brighter it is.

    The Underwater Halloween Pumpkin carving

    During Halloween time, we're used to buy a nice pumpkin and have fun by carving it and create strange, funny or very frightening faces. Often we make this in our kitchen or anywhere else, but did you ever try to do this by diving 6 meter deep? I'd like to share with you a very funny and unique halloween experience I had the chance to live...

    Voigtländer V200: Attention, Please!

    Color negative film often doesn’t appeal to me. There seem to be endless variation and colours are not as reliable as slide film, and cross processing it is basically not an option. But it is the variety, that makes analogue photography ever exciting and the Voigtländer V200 is a choice that catches more of my attention lately!

    I would never have thought that I will ever be in a Favela, not even imagined sleeping there. But the beautiful thing about life is, that things just happen. Even before I visited my friends Bru and Andi in Brazil they had chatted about a hostel in Rio de Janeiro, that is located on top of a Favela with a splendid view on the city and the sugarloaf.

    There always has to be a reason or motivation to write a film review. Sometimes it’s the sheer excitement about a great series of pictures or a rare find. In the case of the Ferrania Solaris Chrome, it is an epic turnover in the current photo film industry. With their recent statement to be releasing a new slide film, Ferrania made most of analogue film aficionados rub their eyes in happiness. So it's time to go back to the future with the Ferrania Solaris Chrome 100.

So it was about time to see them doing their thing. Best Spot to witness some good sport is the Morumbi stadium of SPFC, São Paulo Futebol Clube.

    Edificio Itália Grandest View on São Paulo

    While Rio de Janeiro is the sunny shiny magnate for tourists São Paulo is rather a financial and business center for the upcoming state of Brazil. That means that some museums only have displays in Portuguese and it’s rather hard to find a decent postcard. But the magic of São Paulo happens behind doors, in the families, at restaurants, concerts and on the roof. Especially on one roof, on top of Edificio Italia, where you have the grandest view of a metropolis you could ever imagine.
