Developing Adventures – My First Time Shooting Fujifilm Neopan Acros 100 II Film

The original Acros film was discontinued in 2018 and it seemed to be mourned by film shooters around the world, which actually didn't go ignored by Fuji for long. I bought 4 rolls of Fuji's new release of its Professional Neopan Acros 100 II film back when it first came out in Spring 2020. I… Continue reading Developing Adventures – My First Time Shooting Fujifilm Neopan Acros 100 II Film

Developing Adventures – My First Time Processing Color Film

This past Christmas I received the Cinestill C41 color film processing 2 bath powder kit from Kelsey's grandmother.

I normally… Continue reading Developing Adventures – My First Time Processing Color Film

A Snapshot of the Film Community – Lee Dudley and How the Nikon F Took Him from Hell to Heaven During the Vietnam War

Today's Snapshot of the Film Community is going to be a little different. It is not going to be an interview like usual. In fact, I am not even going to ask this person questions. I will simply let him tell his story. Let me explain. One of the first videos I created on my… Continue reading A Snapshot of the Film Community – Lee Dudley and How the Nikon F Took Him from Hell to Heaven During the Vietnam War

My First Zines – Riding In Cars With Film

When I started shooting film again a little over a year ago now, I never thought I would have a website, a YouTube channel and now two zines to share my work with the community. I have always loved photography and cameras. I wanted to become a photo journalist when I was a kid, but… Continue reading My First Zines – Riding In Cars With Film

Developing Adventures – Ilford HP5 400 Pushed to 3200 and Night Photography from My Car

I did an article about pushing Kentmere Pan 400 to 800 and shot some photos at night from the car. I was actually really surprised that anything came out. I thought I'd try pushing HP5 to 3200 in the same setting to see how it compared. I was again surprised to see that there wasn't… Continue reading Developing Adventures – Ilford HP5 400 Pushed to 3200 and Night Photography from My Car

Developing Adventures – Pushing Kodak Tmax 400 to 1600

Kodak Tmax was actually the first black and white film stock I ever shot with back around 2013 when I got back into film photography. It is a high contrast film, which isn't usually the look I go for these days, so I haven't shot with it much recently. However, I had a roll in… Continue reading Developing Adventures – Pushing Kodak Tmax 400 to 1600

Developing Adventures – Pushing Kentmere Pan 400 to 1600

In my last Developing Adventure, I talked about pushing Kentmere Pan 400 to 800 and explained that it is a film stock manufactured by Ilford as a more affordable alternative to their HP5 400 Plus film, which is usually my go-to black and white film. (To catch up on my past developing adventures click here)… Continue reading Developing Adventures – Pushing Kentmere Pan 400 to 1600

Developing Adventures – Pushing Kentmere Pan 400 to 800

In continuing my quest with pushing and pulling different black and white films, I have started to explore the more affordable film stocks for this endeavor as Jeremy Zorns on Facebook recommended. I don't know why I didn't even think to do that, but that's why I love this community because I tend to be… Continue reading Developing Adventures – Pushing Kentmere Pan 400 to 800
