This week has been like Christmas for a film shooter & Kickstarter addict like myself. Just before the weekend the Yashica MF-1 arrived and on Monday the postie left 2 new packages for me. First up the RETO3D 3D film cameras, a 21st Century take on the Nimslo. The second box was a slightly late Ars Imago Lab Box.Continue reading August KickStarter Madness – First Thoughts on RETO3D And More
Been a busy few weeks both photography and in life. I’ve realised the regular update is becoming a a bit irregular and given it’s almost 2 months since I last did one so say farewell to the analogue week and step inside from the rain to the warmth of the Analogue Arms and grab a pint or coffee from the bar as I give you a run down of what I’ve been up to and some other news that’s worth followContinue reading The Analogue Arms – Storm Brewing
Since my last posting irregular update a lot has been happening both in the world of film and in the wider world. This post is a bit Bond themed with news that Bond 25 inches ever closer with news on the new Villain and confirmation the the Fantastic Phoebe Waller-Bridge will be co-re-writing the script. So grab your Martini (shaken not stirred) and pull up a seat.Continue reading The Analogue Week 3 – Good Evening Mr Bond. we’ve been expecting you
My apologies as this is way late but it has been a busy month as you’ll see. This post we’ll have a couple of trips away to discuss some new & old cameras and why I’m probably never buying Lomography 120 film ever again. But worse still it looks like the Lomography Film is now dead on the UK High Street too.
Oh and some other worthy reviews to check out and a DIY project for the darkroom bunnies.Continue reading The Analogue Week 3 – Wet Trails, Dirty Cameras and Lomo Woes
In my 10 35mm alternatives to buying a Diana F+, I recently mentioned that you could buy an adaptor allowing you to use a Diana F+ lens on a SLR.
So I got one for my Nikons to try. But is it any good ?Continue reading Call The Mounties – The Lomography Diana F+ mount for SLR
I’m writing this a bit late into the day but this column is meant to be a bit more flexible. This week the postie brought a few more Poundland challenge 2019 cameras, a vintage classic and something for the weekend from Lomography. Meanwhile there’s some serious modding going on in film land and there the curious case of the missing F6. Pull up a chair and have a drink !Continue reading The Analogue Week -2- Lomo-Doo & the Missing Nikon
I’ve been running the reading room for over 6 months but I’ve decided to bring it to a close for several reasons so welcome to the Analogue week which my little update of what I’ve been up to with film gear and what else I’ve come across. Expect some sneak peaks for future posts, some ramblings and some good reads.Continue reading The Analogue Week – 1 – It’s Cold up north !
Lent is upon us but there’s no famine of good film photography articles out there. Here’s my pick going from vintage to brand new. There’s even a APS review ! We also here a voice differing to the herd, a bit of honesty and question of form over use. Pull up a chair and relax.Continue reading THE READING ROOM – NEWS & THINGS YOU MIGHT HAVE MISSED (WEEK 31: MARCH 1ST-7TH 2019)
This week we start with modern news and end with the fall of the soviet union. In between we go half frame, classic, elite and waisted ! Pull up a chair and drop in.Continue reading THE READING ROOM – NEWS & THINGS YOU MIGHT HAVE MISSED (WEEK 30: FEB 22ND-28TH 2019)
By 1871 having your photograph taken was pretty common place. But a development published that year would lead to a major revolution in making photography easier and more practical. And that where our subject comes in. The man in the photo is Dr Richard Leach Maddox, who came up with this leap.Continue reading History of Photography by Objects – 9 – A Photograph Of a British Doctor ~1871
