Kodak Tri-X

5 Frames of Kodak Tri-X in Cornwall with a Mamiya RB67 and Sekor C 127mm f3.8 – by Arinola

I initially borrowed my friend Shin Smith’s Mamiya RB67 for a trip to Oxford at the end of February. Shortly after, I went to Cornwall with a group of friends and thought it could be cool to take the Mamiya for another spin. It turned out to be an opportune time of year for colour film because, despite the rain forecast, the weather held up well while we were there.

Sadly, I messed up loading a roll of Kodak Gold into the Mamiya and bitterly regretted it at the time because I only took two rolls of film along to Cornwall. My plan was to only use the Gold roll because I was mostly looking forward to taking it easy that weekend, but I added the Tri X just in case.

The Film Noir Cake Stand – A One Shot Story

In early December I spent a few hours over the course of a couple of days attempting to take shots inside Greenwich Market. As the result of a comment to my last post asking if it was still there I had a vague idea of putting together a Five Frames about it.

5 Frames in St Kilda, Melbourne with a Holga – By Paul Sutton

St Kilda, not the wild islands off the coast of Scotland, but the plastic fantastic beach side suburb of Naarm (Melbourne, Australia).

What better place to take a secondhand plastic fantastic Holga for a first trial run than St Kilda?

I have been fooling with cameras for almost 60 years, since I was in junior high school in the early 1960s in the Detroit, Michigan area.  In those days the Nikon F series of film cameras was the professional’s choice and I lusted after them.  I was unable to float the cost of such a …

Leica M6 "Panda" and Kodak Tri-x

5 Frames of ‘… And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead’ with a Leica M6 and Kodak Tri-X – by Neil Milton

Though I’ve largely ploughed my creative furrow in street photography, I got my all-important start in being paid to photograph by shooting gigs on the Glasgow and Edinburgh music scenes. Having come to photography from running an underachieving little indie label, it was a natural shift to slide across to shooting the gigs I was no longer performing or promoting. It didn’t hurt that I had a wee black book lousy with contacts to smooth the obstacle-strewn way to photo-passes.
