Hi, my name is Martin. I’m a product designer and I’ve been shooting film for the last 12 years.
Unlike most of my friends I started taking pictures on film. Why you ask? Simple, I always like the idea of taking photography as a hobby, but never really took the leap.
One day my older brother told me he had taken a film photography course and then showed me the basics. Since I was so interested he even got me my first camera, a Canon A-1. I was instantly hooked. The haptics of old film cameras are something to behold and couldn’t be more different than their digital counterparts.
Since then I’ve used several different cameras and tried a wide range of emulsions and development techniques, which I’ll hopefully be able to share through this blog.
