Pushed T-Max 100

I’ve already done the “pulled” photographic process on several Kodak T-Max 400 rolls. For those who are reading this blog for the first time, and do not know anything about this process, here is a brief (very, very) explanation. We have a film with a certain ISO, but when placing in the machine we decided…

Color Negative 800 – Lomography stuff

We are from Setúbal. A city of fishermen neighbourhoods, and where fish is the main business card. At some point in the year, all our cities celebrate their patrons saint and the way to do it is with a typically traditional commemoration. Our city is no exception and every year there is a S’antiago fair….

Olive

All those who practice agriculture or who have inherited olive trees like us, have no choice but to go and pick up the olive to collect some biological oil that sometimes lasts the whole year. It is hard. Very hard. Sunrise and sunset dictate working hours. A job left for the elders and often alone,…

Little walk in Parque das Nações

Parque das Nações was the site that received the world exhibition of 98 and is currently in a leisure zone near the river. We found green spaces, places to eat and visit. Some of the pavilions built for Expo 98 have been maintained and are suitable for visitors, such as the Oceanarium. Konica went with…

1st time with Konica

Continuing our tour through Guimarães, and taking advantage of the fact that we have brought almost all of our analog photographic equipment, we decided to take the first time with our Konica. I bough for € 80 and it seemed like the right time to test it. I decided to use the Cinestill 50, also…

Highlights of Guimarães – TMAX 400

We are very lucky that our grandmother lives in one of the most beautiful cities I know. Guimarães is the first Portuguese city thanks to our king D. Afonso Henriques. He defeated his mother in the battle of S. Mamede and from there he conquered the country we have today, expelling all the Moors. Guimarães…

Early experiences with Lomo color film (400)

Those were probably the first bunch of photos i took on film since the high school times. Tired of seing my father´s old camera forgotten on his wardrobe, one day i asked my sister for some film roll to check if the camera was working properly.She had a color Lomo 400 roll somewhere and i…

Expire Film – Kodak EktaChrome

I saved a film in 2008. I was studying and didn’t need to use it because I had been able to do all the exercises at first. Kodak EktaChrome, a slide film that we used a lot because our works were presented in Slide. I finished the college and brought with me where I kept…

Portraits with Lomo

This is a medium format roll. Lomography, in addition to its own 35 mm film, also has the same but in medium format. 110mm or 120mm, designed for lomographic cameras. If the aim is to try medium format without spending much money and just to test any camera, these are a good chance, since its…

Behind Scenes – Color Implosion

Adox Color Implosion is the real name of this modified color film. Photographed at ISO 100, we get more neutral shades with a little blue shift. Photographed at ISO 400 we get red shades. It’s a film with a grain quite visible, despite being ISO 100. You can count on it. I leave you some…

Local Festivities with Ilford Delta 3200

Celebrating religion is something very comon in Portugal.Events such as pilgrimages, and processions are quite frequent an in large number throughout the country. It is especially at Easter the the so-called “local festivities” are held in the cities, towns ans villages of the country in honour of the saint on the area. At this time,…

Walking with Silvermax

Silvermax became (for now) one of my favorite film (speaking in black and white). That black-and-white film contrasted to the “dark” style with a scale reduced to gray and black, is called Adox Silvermax. The grain is fine (ISO 100) and the detail is notorious. But for me the beauty is in the shadows that…

Lisboa – Fuji C 200

  Taking advantage of my brother’s visit to Lisbon, we decided to be tourists for a few hours. I took with me the Sprocket Rocket, a plastic lomographic machine, expert in panoramic photography. Being a tourist with such a machine made a lot of sense in my head. And it was a lot of fun…

Andorra Snow Week | CFP Double X

It was perhaps on the second time when I made an order of a few film rolls with my sister when I noticed this film from Camera Film Photo. It got my attention by the fact that it was basically a negative that was used in black and white cinema (this in particular is based…
