We’ve got a limited amount of time left for you to register for our Brooklyn Food Photography Workshop this weekend!
We’re in the very last hours of our Kickstarter initiative and we’ve reached our goal. Again, a very big thank you to everyone who is interested in the production of a well done Analog Photography zine. You’ve got around 24 hours left to donate and by the time you read this, maybe even less.
Today we’re getting a brand new film in the form of Lomography Color Negative F²/400 Film. Well, at least it’s kind of a new film. The company describes the origin of the film as being originally made by an Italian filmmaker. In 2010, they bought the last of it; and then they let it age in the Czech Republic. While doing this, they did some experiments with it. Seven years later, they took it out and they’re really happy with the results.
The concept of utilizing full monochrome image sensor in a camera was initiated by the Leica M Monochrom, which was popular and highly regarded among black and white photography purists. Maxmax.com, a camera conversion expert is offering modified Fujifilm X-100s and X-Pro 1 cameras featuring true monochrome image sensors.
The logic behind having a full monochrome sensor is quite straightforward, by removing the traditional color filters in a typical RGB (red, green and blue) image sensor, the light will hit the image sensor at full spectrum, unfiltered, allowing the image sensor to collect full information with minimal losses. This translates to images in black and white which display greater sharpness, depth and clarity, hence the claimed superiority of utilizing a full monochrome sensor.
Just a reminder to everyone that we’ve got a two day food photography intensive workshop coming up this weekend in Brooklyn, NY. Attendees will be treated to a three course dinner, shooting photos for their own portfolio, a free camera bag and a critique session.
More details are after the jump.
There’s something very exciting in the mix for film photographers today: a brand new Kickstarter called Lab Box wants to allow photographers to develop their film in daylight, at home, on the road, or pretty much anywhere. I’ve known about this since Photokina 2016 and I’ve been keeping my lips sealed until today when the cat is finally out of the bag.
As you most likely know, our Analog Zine Kickstarter was fully funded. Again, a genuine thank you to everyone who donated. But I’d like to summon everyone’s attention who was interested in donating to the project but didn’t because it was too early on. With less than 48 hours left in the campaign, at this point you’re basically just buying a zine with the option of a year long basic subscription to La Noir Image; our premium black and white photography website.
In keeping with their continued evolution as a lens manufacturer, Tamron revealed their newly redesigned logo, going with a full-caps design of the company name. The new Tamron Logo is a revamp in the brand’s identity that coincides with Tamron’s revamped SP series of camera lenses – it’s a renewal in their appearance as well as a promise as to what photographers can expect from their products going forward.
