William Kerr’s Beautiful Kodak Tri-X Food Photography

All images and words by William Kerr. Used with permission.

We’ve received well over 1,000 submissions for our analog photography zine; and while you all know that the best of the best (no more than 20) photographers are getting into the zine there are a number of photographers that still have very good work surely worthy of being profiled on our website. One of those photographers is William Kerr–who loves food photography and Kodak Tri-X in the 6×7 format. Crazy, right? You’d typically see food in color, but William does it in shades of light, blacks, whites, and shadows.

I genuinely think that you’re about to fall in love with his submission.

Rainer Wengel’s Photos of the Aurora Borealis on Film Will Captivate You

All images by Rainer Wengel. Used with Creative Commons Permission.

Of course, one of the best things for landscape photographers to capture is the Aurora Borealis–but capturing it on film the way Rainer Wengel did is a whole nother different level of magic. While this seems really simple to a lot of photographers, take into consideration that Rainer didn’t do this on 35mm film. Instead, it’s on 6×9 and 6×17 medium format as well as in a 6×17 format using a large format camera. What this requires is a proper tripod, exposure settings, processing, etc.

Jonathan Moore: Surreal and Creative Landscape Photography on Film

All images by Jonathan Moore. Used with permission.

“I think I’ve been multi-talented in the arts for a long time and photography just stuck with me.” says photographer Jonathan Moore in an email to the Phoblographer. “I grew up in a few small towns in Tennessee. After high school, I worked odd jobs and toured the southeast playing guitar in a hardcore band.” Art stuck with and evolved with Jon quite a bit: from music into graphic design and then photography. Jon’s photographs draw obvious inspiration from movies and you can see influences from Stranger Things and Lord of the Rings for sure.

“Movies are often over-looked in terms of fine art, but pause anywhere during 2001: A Space Odyssey or There Will Be Blood, and you’ll know what I’m talking about.”

Kodak’s Stock Just Took a 20% Fall; Lowest Point in a Year

In a turn of news that I really wish I didn’t have to report, Kodak’s stock isn’t doing so well at the moment. Last year around this time it was pretty low; and then it started to climb up again and remained fairly high. Around the holidays it stayed strong and then back in January when they announced Ektachrome around CES it became strong again. But since then, apparently things haven’t been going so well.

Review: Lomography XPro Slide 200 Film (35mm Format)

To begin this review, I’m going to say flat out that Lomography XPro Slide 200 film has to, hands down, be the weirdest film I’ve ever worked with. But it’s also been a pleasure and a very fulfilling learning experience in my own pursuits of bettering my photography knowledge. To say this wasn’t a challenge is an extreme understatement. Within three rolls, I tried to “get it right”. Pretty simple you’d think, right? Well, yeah–even I’d sit there and call me a dumbass. Except that Lomography XPro Slide 200 film isn’t a conventional film at all.

35mm Black and White Film You Can Still Get Quickly Online

Black and White 35mm Films

Film photography is having a renaissance, and this means more and more photographers are looking to buy. But an issue many are finding is the difficulty of actually buying film in a store these days. You can usually find film in camera stores still, but even their stock is usually limited, and the other unfortunate reality is that these shops are becoming more and more rare.

Lucky for those of us who enjoy shooting with film you can still get your film fairly quickly when ordering online, and if you happen to be an Amazon Prime member you can get it second day for free or next day (in some areas) for really cheap. Amazon has a great stock of black and white films available too!

Jeb Inge: On Getting Back into Film Photography

All images by Jeb Inge. Used with permission.

There are a ton of photographers out there who started in film, then went digital, and eventually went back to film: and Jeb Inge is one of those shooters. This year he took the big leap and sold all of his digital equipment. His best work is landscape photography, but Jeb genuinely enjoys the documentation process of finding wonderful things in the world and capturing their essence. Jeb applied to be featured in our analog zine, and his work is wonderful enough to share here.
