The Easiest Black and White Film Emulsions to Start with

Black and white film is much easier to start with than color.

Indeed, black and white film shooting also makes you think in a different way about the images you’re going to shoot – which teaches you to look at scenes in a way digital won’t. With lots of new photographers getting into the game, many are also trying to experience film for themselves for the first time. Why? Well, lots of these new folks haven’t had that experience.

Fashion is often a fickle muse and industry. What looks trendy today will most likely be considered tacky within a few years’ time. Some looks from decades past, however, remain so timeless that they influence styles up to the present. Munich-based fashion photographer Elizaveta Porodina proves it also applies to the look and mood of fashion portraiture itself.

Kodak’s New SCANZA Film Scanner Looks Like an Upgraded Wolverine F2D

The new Kodak SCANZA Digital Film Scanner is a lot like the Wolverine F2D but with a few updates.

If you shoot film and you’re willing to look past the shady moves that Kodak pulled off at the 2018 CES, you might want to keep reading.

We reviewed the Wolverine last year and found that, while the quality isn’t comparable to that of pricier, pro-level scanners, it’s not so shabby either. We imagine Kodak’s new film scanner to produce the same quality of scans as the Wolverine.
