I can't remember a time when I didn't have a camera in my hand. Biggest joy is developing film and that anticipation of seeing the images for the very first time.

Lomography DigitaLIZA Max Review – By George Griffin

Shortly after my Using a Mobile Phone And a Free App To Scan Negatives article came out in March, Lomography announced they were releasing a new type of scanning device for scanning film, the DigitaLIZA+ and the DigitaLIZA Max.

As someone who now does 99% of their scanning with a mobile phone, I was intrigued by these two new scanning products and pre-ordered the ditiaLIZA Max.

The only difference between the DigitaLIZA+ and Max is that the Max comes with a smartphone copy stand. The DigitaLIZA+ is aimed at people who really only use a DSLR/mirrorless camera and tripod to scan their negatives, whereas the Max gives you the option of a camera or mobile phone because of the included copy stand.

Using a Mobile Phone And a Free App To Scan Negatives – By George Griffin

When I first got back into analogue photography back in 2015, the biggest problem for me was how do I get these analogue images into a digital format to post on either a blog, Flickr or Instagram. Yes, I could get the lab I was sending to, to scan the images but this was costly and also there may only be half-a-dozen images that are worth scanning plus I was developing my own B & W and so that needed to be scanned at home.

Memento Mori

Memento Mori – The making of a Zine – By George Griffin

The Industrial Revolution changed the world forever. The coming of mechanised production was a shift from a mainly agricultural society to a technological one. London was the first city affected by this as the Industrial Revolution originated in the UK. As London grew it swallowed up great swathes of the countryside, this put enormous strain on city services due to overcrowding.
