In this tutorial, Tom Box takes us along for his trip to Japan for some night photography experiments with the Olympus Trip 35 film camera. Learn how to hack the Trip 35 to best work in low light, and find out what to expect from night photography with such a fun, little camera.
Another camera review made our top ten list, and this one is for an amazing instant film camera. Andrew Welsh dives into all of the specs for the Mamiya Universal Press and why it’s one of the best instant cameras out there.
It’s rare to find an instant camera that allows for so much control with interchangeable lenses and manual exposure control. You can even shoot a variety of different Polaroid and Instax instant film formats.
The flexibility and features of the Mamiya Universal Press makes this camera a complete gem.
Pushing film is always a tricky topic for film photographers. Knowing when to push and understanding how each film will react takes a lot of practice and experimentation.
In this tutorial, Jennifer Stamps walks us through one of those experiments. She compares the results after shooting and developing Ilford Delta 400 black and white film at box speed, pushed one stop, and pushed two stop.
You’ll be able to see the effect pushing has on grain, contrast, and different lighting situations.
James Baturin is our go-to resource for long exposure film photography. He’s amazingly talented with long exposures and understands the complexity film adds to the mix.
In this article, he experiments with combining long exposures and night photography for a look at shooting star trails on film. You’ll learn about the equipment you’ll need, exposure times, and the difference between shooting star trails on film vs digitally.
