If you’re reading this post, there are strong chances that you remember disposable cameras. My mother, who wasn’t that tech savvy at all, turned to them often when her Olympus camera broke. My college graduation was photographed on one in 2009 when I and many others had switched to digital point and shoots. My parents used them at events. So did my aunts and uncles. I always remember how fun they were–small, portable, and almost never reloadable until Lomography created their own reloadable versions earlier this year. So it was a complete blast from the past when I decided to try out Ilford’s disposable cameras.
“It was like getting reborn!” says photographer Pietro Bevilacqua about his photographic journey…

This month: we’re exploring Fujifilm Acros.
Pushing and pulling Kodak Tri-x, exposing, studio lights and a whole lot more are covered here.
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.
“…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.”
