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….

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…

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…

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…

Highlights of Guimarães – TMAX 400

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…

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…
