Loading a Film Reel ►
Religions have been founded based on the debate over using plastic or steel reels. Personally I like the AP plastic reel. I find them easy to use and at this stage I have about 10 of them so I always have some dry and ready to go.
Always make sure they are fully dry before you use them as the film will stick to the plastic…

I shot so much digital that day that I was concerned that I may not get a chance to shoot with a film camera but these two seemed to have infinite patience when it came to the formal photos.

This is one of my first shots from the day and I think set the tone for the whole event.
This film swap business has started to develop a life of its own. Fresh rolls are now arriving every week and I am really enjoying the creative collaborations and all the surprises they bring. This is the results of my first film swap with Kate Dollarhyde and as I type I have a second roll at the lab.
This latest round was shot by Kate in Oakland and Napa-USA and I re-shot the roll in Dublin
To make your own Redscale film you will need:

Whats the first thing that springs to mind when you think of Amsterdam?
Was your guess world wide pinhole photography day 2014?
What started as an amusing and light hearted discussion on twitter between Inge, Alex and Monica became a full scale pinhole meetup in Amsterdam. There was was a good sized group of us from all over the world. The sight of 13 pinhole photographers meandering very slowly…
Film Leader Retrieval ►
Have you ever needed to extract a 35mm leader that you had rewound into the canister. I do this a few time a month to let me re-shoot rolls of film that have been sent to me for film swaps or when I do something silly.
You will need:
- A roll of 35mm film with the leader out
- something moist – in the video I use a damp…
