The Long-awaited wood Hut Fujifim Industrial 400 (PART 1)

This time i´m here to talk about a great friend of mine Pedro (or Peter for closest friends). As long i know this guy he always had the goal of one day to build his own wood cabin. This may seem strange but coming from someone who is always thinking about building something makes perfect…

Cinestill 50 D – Try Again?

(portuguese version below) Before writing something, I have a habit of researching the film that I’m about to talk (or just see). I found several opinions on the Cinestill 50D and they all seem to be similar, and accordingly. Cinestill 50D The cinestill 50D is a film for use at 5500k ° and adapted to…

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…

Tourist in our city – Mafra e Ericeira

We and our friends made several tours in order to get to know our own country. Unfortunately not everyone in our group is available to make multi-day trips, so we are organizing small trips near the areas where we live. Since the majority lives in Lisbon, we end up choosing places that are close by…

Panoramic Viewpoint of Monsanto

The Monsanto viewpoint was built-in 1968 and was one of the most emblematic spaces of the city. Better known as observatory, the viewpoint allows a panoramic view of Lisbon and has been abandoned since 2001. Over the years, despite his advanced degradation, it is now used by many as a viewpoint. Due to the increase…

Kodak Ultramax 400

Tenho usado o Kodak Ultramax 400 como o principal rolo a cores. Facilmente o consigo comprar e normalmente é vendido em pack’s e com promoções. Fica confortavelmente a bom preço. Desta vez, o Ultramax ficou mais tempo dentro da maquina e acabei por usar em diversos ambientes diferentes com temperaturas de cor diferentes. Tipos de…

Helios 44 m-4 58mm f/2

A tour through Lisbon to test the new acquisition. Helios 44M, 58mm f / 2. A soviet made lens that weights more that I was expecting. Just metal an glass here.But the most amazing thing is the “swirl bokeh effect” produced on the out-of-focus parts off an image. This lens has a M42 lens mount , which…

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,…

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…

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…

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…
