If you’re a fan of Kodak Tri-X 400, you should really give Kodak T-Max 400 and see what you’re missing.
Kind of boils down to personal preference – as in what subjects you like to shoot…”
More and more lifestyle photography is being done with film these days; and for great reason.
Kodak T-Max helps make these buildings almost look like scenes from the Twilight Zone.
Kodak T-Max 400 works in a different way from Kodak Tri-X 400. Let’s explore it a bit.
Here’s what you NEED to know about Fujifilm Acros.
Ever wonder how the Fujifilm Acros 100 emulsion and the digital presets compare?
This month: we’re exploring Fujifilm Acros.
“Kodak Tri-X is the most famous film of all time, it has a look in it that is easily recognizable.”
“I started use Tri-X three years ago, and I literally fell in love with that beautiful grain.”
F8 and be there! Well…sort of.
Pushing and pulling Kodak Tri-x, exposing, studio lights and a whole lot more are covered here.
“Connection. Connection and depression.” is what Nick Nemphos says about what inspires him to create photographs.
For many years, photographers everywhere trusted Kodak Tri-x not only for its reliability, but also because it was simply just an incredible black and white film emulsion. Over the years it evolved and these days only the ISO 400 variant still remains. It’s a high speed film that is still in use with street photographers, documentary photographers, and well honestly a lot more than that. It’s prized for its look combined with it’s price point.
I began analog photography very shortly after I took interest in photography as a hobby. It was a really beneficial way to learn the fundamentals, and depend on my knowledge rather than the “digital safety net.”
We also need to talk about loading 120 film, because even if you have experience with 35mm film, 120 is a totally different beast in terms of how you load it. You see, 120 film comes on rolls, so it’s just one long roll of film.
The pinhole camera has been a classic DIY project for students discovering photography for many decades. If you want to get a deeper appreciation for the basic DNA of a camera, build a pinhole camera. Pinhole cameras are bare-bones cameras; they consist of a black box, a place to put photo-sensitive material, and a pinhole-sized opening that projects a faint image on light-sensitive material. Stripped of the bells and whistles, all cameras—film and digital—follow this design. Some (OK, almost all) cameras are more advanced. But DIY is making a comeback, especially among millennials, so, let’s make a pinhole camera!
“Since typical street shooters need to capture fast-changing moments, the faster the film the better.”
“…going into your shoot with some sort of story that you want to tell can be a great way to help you keep a good flow and have those 36 exposures count.”
Japan Camera Hunter Street Pan 400 film is an exciting entry into the film photography world. It’s designed for street photography and is also designed to be nice and sharp. For the most part, it really is a sharp film. All of my testing has been with the Hexar AF–perhaps one of my favorite 35mm cameras of all time and perfect for capturing candid moments. So if you’re a street photographer looking to work with something different, then this is probably the film to get.
