Last week I decided to load my ol' Kiev 88 with a roll of Ilford SFX 200 and give infrared photography another chance. Last year I tried shooting with this film for the first time, and the results were not that great. Actually they were pretty terrible. I used a combination of green/red filters (go figure), and the exposure was way off.
I took my camera out to test a roll of the Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 film, and what better place to go to in Kuwait than Souq Almubarkeya? Now the cool thing about this film is that it has a flexible ISO. You can choose to work with a low setting (i.e. 50ISO) and you'll get a cool faded green/blue tones.
I have recently bought a Polaroid SX-70 (Alpha 1), complete with its accessory set, and to my luck, it came with the original user's guide. Since we here at the Shoot Film blog are all about sharing useful informarion, I thought I might as well scan the manual, and upload it for all to download. Enjoy!
#1: The Mijonju Show
Perhaps by far the most popular Youtube channel on film photography. Mijonju will take you on a journey to re-discover the beauty of film cameras. Known for his crazy camera collection (..and that's a fraction of the collection, amazing!), his channel would often feature hands-on reviews on both cameras, films, and occasional tutorials and DIYs.
Or the ones that came to mind first..
In no order, they are:
