Nikon FM2n

5 Frames in Italy With the Nikon FM2n and a Roll of Fujifilm Superia X-Tra 400

In February, I went on a family trip to the Cinque Terre region in northern Italy. I brought with me my Nikon FM2n and some Nikkors (20mm ƒ/3.5, 50mm ƒ/1.8, and 200mm ƒ/4). The three rolls of film that I brought were Ektar 100, Gold 200, and Superia 400. On the first day, it was really sunny so I loaded the Ektar and fired off a shot. When we got to our Airbnb, it was cloudy and according to multiple weather apps, it would stay that way for most of the trip. For this reason, I carefully rewound the roll of Ektar with one exposure and replaced it with the roll of Superia 400. I’d never shot Superia before, but I needed the extra speed since my budget airline didn’t allow for tripod sized objects in carry-on baggage.

Capturing Desert Wildflowers on Kodak Ektar – By Cameron Wheatley

I wanted to get as far away from the city as I could, to actually see the stars and feel the sense of awe and curiosity that nature brings with it. And I wanted to capture that all on film.

My goal was a four-day hike in the Little Desert in Western Victoria and I wasn’t going to let a bit of steam pouring out from under the bonnet of my car stop me! After an unscheduled repair session with a local farmer in the desert… at midnight… I made it to the campsite.

5 frames from Ecuador with a Nikon FM2n & Ilford SFX – By Jorge Carmigniani

My name is Jorge Carmigniani, I am a documentary photographer from Guayaquil, Ecuador. I travel the country searching for images that describe our way of living in relationship with nature.

Street photography has never been my strength, but in the past few months I started to go out on my bicycle and revisited places where I usually scout for pictures. My idea of street photography develops in portraying landscapes at short scale which can be satisfying for my eye and at the same time help me rediscover where I live.

I’ll admit, as a political science major in college (at the moment, anyway), I’m not very passionate about keeping up with the politics happening in my own country compared to politics outside of it. Maybe it’s chronic fatigue keeping up with American politics; maybe I just would rather look outward than in. Every once in a while, though, I can fight through the fatigue.
