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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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….

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…

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…

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…
