    The Beauty of Found Films

    After reading a bunch of articles about 'forgotten films,' I finally got a chance of my own. After buying a new analog toy I discovered a used film inside. I decided to get it developed and I got to tell you, I'm really pleased with the results I got from the lab.

  • B&W Darkroom Paper Bible

    B&W Darkroom Paper Bible

    It's time to go all the way. Your digital camera has been on the shelf for months, entombed in dust. When it comes to loading your film camera, you're like a well-trained photographic assassin loading your sniper rifle. Your bathroom has a lingering odor that can't quite be identified by your friends, but that smell of fixer during your morning shower is like your first cup of coffee: necessary and refreshing. You're a film nut and you're proud of it. But once those negatives have dried, you're again stuck behind a screen while you scan and tone your images. It's time for that to change, and the first step in moving toward a full darkroom is understanding photographic paper.

    Chernobyl/Prypiat: A Silent City

    September 2011, Marije (s0y) and I finally took the trip we wanted to do for so long, visit Ukraine, Kiev and in particular, the 30km exclusion zone around Chernobyl, with the ghost town of Prypiat. When I saw the bumper carts, I almost cried. Afterwards, we were exhausted; there was so much to take in. And bringing too many cameras is never a good idea. ;)

    Lomography B&W 120 (100iso): Simple and Effective !

    B&W photographs are somehow very mysterious to me. The way pictures look different in these monochrome shades, light and darkness. I often ask myself: "Why do B&Ws transpire most the emotion perceived in a photo?" Here is my attempt to answer that question using the Lomography B&W 120 (100iso) film.

    Lomography Singapore and Parallel Planets Present: 'Façades: Neo-Noir Portraits Exhibition'

    Lomography Singapore plays host to Parallel Planets’ first exhibition, "Façades: Neo-Noir Portraits Exhibition," featuring all-analog photography: a sea of black and white film portraits. This exhibition serves as a platform where both local and international photographers can express themselves by injecting individual perspectives into their craft. It also encourages viewers to look through the lens of the photographers, to see the subjects as who they are – flawed, alive, and breathing – and to also see beyond the façades we all choose to don.

    Canon A35F

    The Canon A35F is a fully automatic rangefinder camera from 1978, with a sharp light lens Canon 40/1.28 and a very nice black metallic body. It’s the first Canon camera to feature a built in automatic flash (A35F stands for "Automatic (exposure) Flash). It’s not big and doesn’t weight a lot (500 gram), so it’s perfect to take it out with you for some street photography.

    Darks as black as the strongest coffee and whites as bright as new fallen snow. I used the 35mm version of Ilford Pan F+, ISO 50 and achieved the greatest contrast ever! This is one film that delivers very true blacks and whites.
