Our Blue City

We have the privilege of living near the sea. If we want we are at the beach in 15 minutes. This is one of the things I love in the city where I grew up. Although I and Gonçalo sometimes we have changed working schedules, this means that we are not always together to shoot….

Kodak Portra 800

When we hear of the range portra we instantly associate portraits and daylight photography with vibrant colors. It is a very complete range and the most used in the market. It was his popularity that led me to experiment. I bought the Portra 800 thinking about the light conditions I would have. I needed some…

Agfa APX 400 in Madrid

(Portuguese version below) The first thing I read about the APX was that it is a film that must be exposed in the shadows and that for more details it should be pulled. I set a precedent for using it again, because I didn’t pay much attention to these details at the time I used…

This time with more photographic film to use and to be more ambitious. Last year, my main concern was that the best performances of this show, happen at night. With Kentmere…

Toledo – Spain

Toledo is a city of Spain. The visit to Toledo came when we returned home from Madrid. I was on the way and the four of us agreed to go visit and spend the afternoon there. Toledo was a small town that was under the Roman empire. With a strategically important location, it was surrounded…

Kodak Gold 200 vs Fuji C200 with a classic twist

When we decided to buy these two films the initial idea would be to compare them. Two films with similar characteristics and monetarily accessible. The reason these two have left the box is related to an invitation to participate in a classic car race at the Lisbon racetrack. I took a Renault 4L without major…

Tourist in our City – Belém

Here in Lisbon, there are several Museums and every Sunday morning of the month, the tickets are free. At least for the most part. Some are even free all day. Just search. One of these mornings we decided to go to the Puppet Museum. This museum is free only in the morning. The Puppet Museum…

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…
