Gear: Mamiya 645 Pro w/ Sekor C 80mm f2.8 lens Film: Cinestill 800T Dev & Scan: Rewind Photo Lab Shot at: Haymarket / Town Hall, Sydney Hi! My name is Surya, I'm a film student and have been in Sydney for about half a year now. I started shooting film back in Hong Kong in 2017 but fell out of it after the camera didn't come back from repair. I picked it up again in May/June 2019 after a good friend bought me a Minolta Maxxum 7000. I was inspired by some friends around the same time and fell in...

First Roll With: Nikon F3 by Kevin Dao

Gear: Nikon F3 w/ 50mm f1.4 Lens Film:  Kodak Gold 200 (pushed to 400) Dev + Scan:  Rewind Photo Lab I must preface this entry by saying the Nikon F3 is a remarkable camera. It’s the halfway house of the camera world- the transition point between the days of all mechanical where patience was more than just a virtue and the current age of digital where patience is just a preference. If you are looking to experiment within and beyond the limitations of film- look no further. Astrophotography? Long exposures? Multiple exposures? Improperly exposing photos because you’re not familiar with 80:20...

She knew I was interested in film photography and found this old camera she had with her when living in Sweden...

The Yashica instantly captured my attention, given its attractive retro design, and the rangefinder mechanism. Unfortunately, the...

First Roll With: Pentax 67 by Sean Morrow

Camera: Pentax 67 w/ 105mm f2.4 LensFilm: Ilford HP5 & Kodak Portra 400Dev and scan: Rewind Photo Lab Hello! My name is Sean Morrow and I'm from London. I started shooting film on an Olympus OM1 approximately 2 years ago when I went travelling to Central America. I wanted my photographs to not only document my travels, but to also be stand alone pieces of art in their own right. I feel that the aesthetic of film photography helped me achieve this and I haven't stopped shooting film since then. I'm also really attracted to the mechanical and tangible nature of film...
