Old is the new Black

It’s no secret that I love film. If I could I’d shoot everything on film and then throw the developed negatives into the air and roll around in them like Scrooge McDuck in money, revelling in their perfectly delicious colours and creamy warm skin tones.

When Marco and my parents teamed up to give me a new camera for my birthday I came just a little bit closer to that goal. And I mean shooting everything on film rather than rolling around in the negatives as I am a little* too scared to scratch them, really. They got me a Nikon F100 (a pretty sweet upgrade over my old Nikon FE) which is not a new camera at all but it works just as nicely and quick and reliable as my digital D700 does. If not better. And it takes all my lenses I am using already. So off I went shooting a few rolls of precious left over Fuji 400h. I scanned them all myself and couldn’t be happier with the results.


Now excuse me whilst I go pet my negatives.

Die Farben sind wunderbar. So frisch. Analoge Fotos finde ich jedes Mal wieder spannend, man weiß nie genau, was man letztendlich nach dem Enwickeln zu sehen bekommt.


These look amazing! How do they compare to the Hasselblad stuff?


Pretty, pretty! I like the way you see life with your camera, I think we’d be good friends.
