The Last One

This is our last post this year. Just because we do not have time for more. In December, we decided that we had to take a short trip, even for our country. I (Sara) had mentioned several times that I had never seen snow. It isn’t something that happens in the city we live in….

Kodak P3200

(Portuguese version below) From the first contact I had with analogue photography, Kodak Tmax 3200 was perhaps the most mentioned name when the topic of conversation was the picture in low light. Historically it is quite important because at the time it was released it was the first high-speed film available on the market. Due…

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…

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…

JCH – Street Pan 400

(Portuguese version below) When we search on google by JCH, the first thing that appears is Bellamy Hunt. Bellamy Hunt is the inventor of JCH – Street Pan 400. An analogue photography enthusiast, Bellamy lives in Tokyo and now his effort is focused on finding and selling cameras. He usually says that “if they exist…

Kodak Tmax 3200 and JCH 400 – Alqueva e Monsaraz

This time we decided to take 2 diferent rolls  in a walk that we did on a weekend at the dam of Alqueva and Reguengos de Monsaraz. Kodak TMAX 3200 and JCH 400. We decide to talk about specifications in another post and just write about our beautiful country. The Alqueva Dam is located on…

Bairro Lavapiés – Fuji Industrial 400

When I returned to Madrid, I knew there was a neighborhood that would have to have a day of visit just for him. Lavapiés is a neighborhood of Madrid, considered one of the most culturally diverse neighborhoods, making it the most exotic place in the capital. The tourist zone of Lavapiés has its medieval origin…

Medieval Celebrations – Part 2

Kodak TriX 400 is so far, my (Sara) favorite black and white film. You can do everything. It has a beautiful tone a compact structure and high resolution. The images are bold, crisp and the little grain they have for an ISO of 400 isn’t distracting. This rigid and severe appearance of the tones of…

Fuji Natura

This post is for a closer look on this peculiar camera film. So far, it’s the only negative / color photo roll with the highest ISO I know. ISO 1600. It is called Fuji Natura 1600 and is a film sold only in Japan. If we want to use it, we will have to order…

Herdade de Rio Frio – Medium Format

Rio Frio is a small land situated near the Pinhal Novo. Called Herdade de Rio Frio, it was once a large farm prodution center that even had a 400 hectare vineyard. At the moment it isn’t so and for that reason it aroused a certain interest in knowing this farm more closely. The path has…

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…

Alcácer with Rollei RPX and Acros 100

We went to Alcácer with our father. He had some business to deal with and after all we decided to go for a walk. Alcácer do Sal is one of the oldest cities in Europe. Like Lisbon and Setubal, he supplied salt, salted fish, horses for export, and food for trading boats. Invaded by the…

Festivities with Cinestill

This post fits into an older one about the village festivities where we sometimes spend our holidays. Local Festivities with Ilford Delta 3200 While Goncalo used an Ilfrod Delta 3200 with our Praktica, I had this ISO 800 Cinestill on my Eos 300. I didn’t intend to photograph a theme, just like my brother. I…

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…

Medieval Celebrations – Kentmere 400

In our country, during the summer some cities celebrate their medieval past, recreating the same moments for a few days. Guimarães, as mentioned in a previous post, is considered the birthplace of Portuguese nationality because it was where the first king of Portugal was born. It was in Guimarães that the main events that led…
