When I want to have black and white photos, I put black and white film in my camera. Black and white film offers unique qualities that can’t be replicated with digital or desaturating colour photography. While it’s possible to convert colour images to black and white during post-processing, there are several reasons why it’s better to shoot black and white film directly.
The dream of the 90s is alive with Kodak Ultramax 400. I actually get rather nostalgic for consumer grade films that were available when I was growing up in the 1990s and 2000s. The results, as in the general look of the photographs that I get from these films is reminiscent of when I really started to enjoy photography for photography’s sake.
I’m writing this review the morning after enjoying the best restaurant experience I’ve had so far in 2023, Lazy Boy Hot Pot at Mawson Lakes in the northern suburbs of Adelaide. Lazy Boy is a new establishment situated on Victoria Parade in Mawson Lakes.
Would you buy a Voigtlander lens for your Leica M? Should you? Voigtlander (or as I often misspell it, Voightlander) is a company with a long and storied history in the field of optics and photography. The company was founded in Vienna, Austria in 1756 by Johann Christoph Voigtlander, who started out as an apprentice to a scientific instrument maker before branching out on his own.
Recently I had the privilege to buy a new Rolex watch at an official Rolex Retailer and skip the waiting list. The watch I purchased was the Yacht-Master II. When I decided to buy a new watch, I was keen to either get a Rolex Daytona (my initial first choice) or a Rolex with a second function such as a stopwatch or something else to play with that made it special.
When it comes to capturing colour images, photographers have two main options: colour negative film and slide film. Each type of film has its own advantages and disadvantages, and the choice between them will depend on the specific needs and goals of each photographer.
The process of developing colour negative film and slide film is different, and each has its own unique advantages and disadvantages. There are significant differences in the chemistry, and development process of colour negative (C-41) vs slide film (E-6). Colour negative film, also known as colour reversal film, is a type of film that captures an image in negative form.
