Roy Deppa spent the summers of 1969 and 1970 backpacking around Europe. Roy was accompanied by his trusty Argus C3, the film camera he had used as a yearbook photographer at Gaithersburg High School.

“One day I left my backpack by my bunk in a hostel, and when I came back I found that someone had gone through my things,” wrote Roy, who lives in Brookville. “It was obvious that they pulled out the camera, looked at it, and put it back! After that, I really cherished this camera! If it was a more modern model, I would have lost not only my camera, but a few dozen irreplaceable photos.

Now there is a marketing slogan. The Argus C3: Not good enough to fly.

I’m sorry. This is a harsh assessment. After including C3 last week on my list of unreasonable dislikes, I’ve heard many fans pleading to disagree. The C3, a rangefinder camera available in different versions from 1939 to 1966, is known as the Brick for its straight lines.

“Why oh why the irritation with the humble and rugged C3?” asked Jim Witkin from Takoma Park. “This is the camera I learned about, back in the 1960s. It was the first 35mm camera given to me by my father, an engineer (naturally), who was drawn to its cogs, its lines sleek and logical layout… And it was indestructible, which was good for a 12-year-old.

Jim said the Argus is what set him on his photographic path, adding: “I would think twice about trying to drive one. Your tire could lose.

John Miller de Manassas is another member of the Arguscenti who was irritated by my chronicle on irritations. “I grew up in Luster’s Gate, Virginia, where my father ran a country store,” he wrote. “He gave me an Argus C3 when I was in seventh grade and I was thrilled.”

John built a darkroom and started taking pictures. Working with a basic camera like the Argus teaches a person the intricacies of exposure and shutter speed. John used the C3 to photograph events at Blacksburg High School and became a photo editor for the school yearbook.

“Of course I have to admit it was 65 years ago,” he wrote. “You can see that I have a sentimental attachment to old Argus.”

silver spring Tom Owell wrote, “Think of how many aspiring photographers have cut their teeth owning one. They were clunky, brick-like, functional and industrial-looking – perhaps reflecting their era – but they certainly had to teach a generation of camera enthusiasts to understand f-stops and speeds. filling.

There are two cameras that Farwell pencil case of Burke especially treasures. One is his grandfather’s Leica IIIc, made by the German company that has become synonymous with high-end cameras. The other is the Argus C3 that Kit bought in 1965 from Pipkin Cameras in Oklahoma City when he was 14 years old.

“The Leica, of course, is a classic, but so is the Argus,” Kit wrote. “With manual shutter and f-stop it was a real camera to learn from and take great pictures. The Argus was built like a tank. I saw one that had a big bump in the corner after been dropped off on a concrete driveway and still took perfect photos.

It was probably the driveway that needed fixing.

Laurent Tagrin of Montgomery Village believes that mastering a simple camera like the C3 can make a person a better photographer.

“I hate how digital imagery has degraded the art of photography,” he wrote. “A lot of serious photographers started out with a basic camera – Argus C3, Kodak Brownie, etc. – and then produced great images later in life. The combination of a box camera and a small darkroom at home leads to a lot more knowledge than a cell phone camera and editing software, it also forces the photographer to think a lot more about the final image they hope to achieve.

The neighborhood one Debra McDonald said her husband, Grass, was upset at my dismissal of the Argus C3. He had one in Korea in 1953 and he loved it.

“He still has some great portraits he took,” Debra wrote. “It was stolen many years later, and he wasn’t using it but was still so upset.”

This proves that the C3 is not anti-theft.

		Five films to see from Prismatic Ground 2022 [Film Festival Dispatch]
		Sat, 07 May 2022 19:01:13 +0000


Prismatic Ground is an annual film series highlighting the latest and greatest experimental endeavors and pushing the boundaries of groundbreaking new filmmakers. This year’s festival runs from May 4-8 and here are some highlights:

5. Constant

One of many medium-length films in this year’s series, Constant comes from directors Sasha Litvintseva and Beny Wagner, and could very well be the most compelling film on this year’s lineup. Seemingly an experimental deep dive into the history of measurement, Constant is an essay film that combines stunning 3D animations, diagrams and live action sequences to tell the story of measurement as it relates to the relationship between knowledge and power. At just 40 minutes, the film may seem dry and almost too heady, but the film is blessed with a superb dry sense of humor from narrator Cynthia Beatt, who when paired with this evolving narrative from an interest in understanding the human body through the use of measurement in settler colonial history gives the film even more weight and power. Aesthetically quite similar to a piece like Our Ark, Constant is a fast-paced film that rewards multiple viewings, focusing on three changes in the bar’s story giving much-needed structure to an otherwise cold work. We watch the film go through things like the rise of land privatization in Europe, the metric revolution to the rise of Big Science today, while asking questions about agency, humanity, justice and power. Blurring the line between cinema and gallery space, there really isn’t a film like Constant.

4. Lake Forest Park

The next step in this breakdown of the Prismatic Ground 2022 lineup is one of the collection’s most haunting efforts. The film tells the story of a group of teenagers who try to come to terms with the death of a classmate. With the event itself only briefly mentioned on the radio, the film focuses less on the act of violence and more on the crippling sense of loss and worthlessness that ensues. Feeling closely in conversation with the films of Gus Van Sant (especially his paranoid park which seems almost essential to the existence of this film), the film is an extremely intimate, observational rumination on death and grief. Located opposite the equally oppressive rain of the Pacific Northwest, Lake Forest Park is a breathtaking film in the body of a calm and thoughtful character study. Truly a unique achievement.

3. Goat

Jump into the world of shorts now, Goat is just one of a dozen or more captivating shorts featured here at Prismatic Ground 2022. A film inherently about genre, politics, style, and the intersection of all three, the barely three-minute short by Paige Taul is an evocative and beautiful black and white story about a girl and her retro knit Air Jordan 1s top. What is ostensibly a young woman describing her Jordans and what they mean to her, this engaging short kicks up a speedy execution. Even jumping occasionally, quite literally, into the surreal, Taul’s short feels in tune with a specific brand of modern American indie cinema, especially filmmakers like Kevin Jerome Everson. It’s a

2. Earth II

Now back to the feature world. Perhaps the most exciting feature of the range, Earth II is if nothing else the most esoteric of the feature films here at Prismatic Ground 2022. From the spirit of the Anti-Banality Union, this 97-minute feature is a collection of clips from various films, ranging from The Matrix to The Martian, which are chopped together to tell the story of the end of the world. In many ways, science fiction takes a documentary like Los Angeles plays on its own, Earth II removes the sarcastic commentary, simply leaving each clip to paint a portrait of a civilization on the brink of collapse. With the 1% determined to get off the planet, they helped start the fire, Earth II is a brilliantly paced post-post-modern thriller that recontextualizes everything from Hollywood blockbuster status to the kind of fascists we celebrate in these movies (Will Smith’s particular placement as Blue Lives Matter AmeriNazi is thrilling). I really can’t remember the last time such a politically heated movie was so inherently exciting. A true masterpiece.

1. Home When you return

Speaking of masterpieces, the festival film could very well be Home When you return. Carl Elsaesser’s 30-minute knockout blow takes the melodramatic works of poet-turned-filmmaker Joan Thurber Baldwin and turns them into a mysterious and eerily surreal double exposure of a tribute. Opening with an intro that sets up the film with an ominous comic cloud hanging over every following second, Elsaesser’s film feels the closest we’ve come to bringing the phrase “Lynchian” to bear, in its dark, comedic reverence for mid-century melodrama and its use of sound and photographic distortion. Instead of seeing the wild-haired author as a reference and more reverential figure, no moment here feels flat. A masterful mesh of visuals, sound and text, Home When you return is a brilliant, darkly comedic short that brings touch to life how memories stick to the walls of the spaces in which we share them.

Do you have a movie? A black-owned camera store in Bushwick has you covered: Bushwick Daily Sat, 07 May 2022 08:45:19 +0000

Located at the back of a commercial building at 1717 Broadway on the Bushwick-Bedstuy border, next to the Chauncey J/Z stop, is Photodom. All rolled into one, it’s a processing lab, creative studio space, and retail store filled with film-focused cameras, accessories, and apparel. Bathed in a neon glow, the well-stocked shelves display an assortment of film types. 35mm and medium-format cameras shimmer in display cases and clothes hang on shelves. ‘SHOOT FILM, NOT PEOPLE’ is written on the tote bags while the hoodies read: ‘Introverted, but ready to discuss photography’.

“I want to focus on the art and the people who are creating projects, the people who are doing cool things in the community and the people who have shows coming up,” said Dominick Lewis, 28 and a native of Brooklyn, at the Bushwick Daily. It is an artist, photographerand owner of Photodom.

“We build a community more around the fine art photography itself than the material used,” he says.

“With a lot of camera stores, you can’t really go in there and ask questions, because people seem to be bored,” says one of the managers of a new camera store. in Bushwick called Photodom.

Photodom regularly organizes events, such as their recent Black Women Photographers Meetupas well as photowalks, workshops, classes in their studio space and book releases: on Saturday, the store welcome the exit from a book by the photograph that Nat Meier is called About Valencia, which features images of the “streets, hills and alleys of San Francisco”. Recent courses there have included a large format photography workshop led by a photographer named Nick Collingwood and a lighting workshop with models taught by a photographer Anthony Tripoliwhile a cyanotype workshop is currently planned by two other photographers: Luis Santana and Laura Ciriaco.

“We give artists the chance to teach and give back to the community in their own way,” says PV., which handles e-commerce for Photodom, in addition to its own photography business. “We want to be a place where people feel comfortable. With a lot of camera shops, you can’t really go there and ask questions because people look bored.

At Photodom, PV assured Bushwick Daily, “we’re more inclusive, and we’re not too busy talking to people or teaching them how to load a camera.”

Photodom started as a brand and online shop in 2014 and opened its physical location in September 2020, after a successful GoFundMe campaign.

“After extensive research, I have discovered that there are currently no black-owned camera stores in Brooklyn and few (if any) in the United States,” Lewis wrote at the time. potential funders.

“We’re building more of a community around fine art photography,” says Owner of Photodom Dominique Lewis.

“It’s important that imagers have a connection to where they buy their gear; a black-owned space will allow BIPOC and other disenfranchised groups to explore an area that has been predominantly dominated by white men. It is abundantly clear that we must empower black image makers and the remaining black neighborhoods of Brooklyn with the ability to control our own stories, instill knowledge and educate the next generation of storytellers, historians and artists.

These days, the store does steady business both in-person and online and handles orders from as far away as Australia and Saudi Arabia. When the six people at Photodom aren’t developing and digitizing films or hosting events, they’re writing for the Photodom Blogedited by Editor-in-Chief Rodra Burruss.

“It’s really cool to continue to expand and grow Photodom in ways I couldn’t even imagine,” Lewis added. “If you can build a community around something, that’s the easiest way to never fail.”

Photodom is located at 1717 Broadway, #310 and on Instagram.

ORWO Wolfen NP100 is a new 35mm B&W film Fri, 06 May 2022 12:07:37 +0000

The analog photography industry is going through a strange time. Film photography hasn’t been this popular in years, but film stock is becoming harder to find – or dramatically increasing in price – left, right and center. So it’s always a pleasure to announce good news: the German film manufacturer ORWO releases a brand new 35mm black and white film Later this year.

Who is ORWO?

The new film cartridges will be DX coated for maximum compatibility with 35mm cameras. ORWO

Related: Fugufilm 400 is a new ISO 400 color slide film from Japan Camera Hunter

While ORWO might not have the same name recognition as, say, Kodak or Fujifilm, it’s a brand with just as much history. Founded in 1909 in Wolfen, Germany, as a subsidiary of AGFA, it has been producing films for over a century. In fact, it was one of the largest film makers in the Soviet Union during the Cold War, producing films in East Germany that were shot by photographers on both sides of the Berlin Wall.

Wolfen NP100, however, is the company’s first new film in 50 years. It’s part of a push by the company next to a merger and financial restructuring to start a new chapter for the legendary brand.

Introducing Wolfen NP100

Wolfen NP100 is an “exceptionally” fine grain ISO 100 35mm B&W photographic film. According to the announcement on Instagramit is a successor to the company’s NP15, NP20 and NP27 films which, although expired in the 70s, are still being shot today with “wonderful results”.

An example of an image taken with the new ORWO Wolfen NP100 B&W film.
Wolfen NP100 should provide plenty of contrast and fine grain. ORWO

Judging from the initial samples provided, as well as ORWO’s description, we expect it to produce similar results to Ilford Delta 100 (which we love). That being said, we’ll wait to do absolute ratings until we run a roll or two through a camera and see the results.

Given its name, it’s no surprise that the NP100 is produced at the company’s factory in Bitterfeld-Wolfen, where it’s been making films since 1910.

How to get Wolfen NP100

An example of an image taken with the new ORWO Wolfen NP100 B&W film.
The new stock is available for pre-order now for $11 a roll. ORWO

NP100 is released in a “strictly limited run” of 36,000 roles at 36 exposures. Previous announcements had suggested the film would be available in April, but shipping delays (which come as no surprise given the current supply chain crisis) have pushed the schedule a bit behind schedule. It should now start shipping in June.

NP100 is available for pre-order now via ORWO’s online store for $11 per roll. If you place an order, we also suggest you check the UN54, NP400and DN21 movies. UN54, in particular, is an excellent all-purpose B&W film.

]]> Is it time to ditch the Fuji film simulations? We review the Dehancer movie emulator Thu, 05 May 2022 21:01:37 +0000

Fujifilm is widely considered the king of film simulations and for good reason. Anyone who has owned a Fuji camera over the last decade appreciates the variety of great movie recipes that can be created in camera and no doubt has their own simulations that they love to use. But is there a better way to give your photos a vintage look? In this review of Movie Dehancer emulator, we will find out.

What is the Dehancer?

Dehancer Film Emulator is a plug-in that works with a variety of film and video editing programs, including Photoshop, Lightroom, Capture One, Affinity Photo, and DaVinci Resolve. It gives the user the ability to quickly and easily apply dozens of different film emulations to their photos, and includes many classic film positives and negatives from companies such as Kodak, Fuji, Agfa, Ilford, etc. In this review, I’ll focus on using Dehancer for still photo editing, and for complete transparency, I’ll mention that Dehancer contacted me and asked for this review. However, they had no influence on the content or my conclusions and will see this review along with the rest of the Fstoppers community.

User interface

Dehancer’s user interface is extremely simple and easy to navigate. Once the plugin is installed in your favorite program (I used Capture One for all the photos in this review), it’s as simple as right-clicking the photo, selecting “Edit With” and choosing Dehancer. The Dehancer window will open automatically and give you the option to apply your favorite emulation and many other adjustments. The interface is very well laid out and it is easy to preview many emulations as you edit your photo. On the left side of the window, there is a grid of thumbnail previews showing the effects of each film simulation, and clicking on a thumbnail will apply the simulation to your photo. Previewing different emulations is quick and easy.

On the right side of the window, there are more tools that let you fine-tune your look with options like color temperature, black point, halo, bloom, vignette, and more. One of my favorite options is the “Film Grain” menu, which allows the user to apply grain to an image with a variety of ways to refine the look. Grain can be applied as a positive or negative film, which provides even more options for refinement since the grain of positive film is much more subtle. Users also have the option of creating a list of favorite presets, which is much easier than searching through the entire library of over sixty.

However, there are a few things missing from the dialog window. There’s no histogram, which would be a huge plus, and no ability to adjust basic settings like exposure, shadows, highlights, contrast, etc. For this reason, I found myself making basic exposure adjustments in Capture One before opening the file in Dehancer, and while that’s not a major issue, it would be easier to adjust those settings directly. in the plugin, even though it is technically a plugin.

Real world test

I tested Dehancer using footage I took during two recent on-location shoots. First, I took some behind-the-scenes photos during a recording session. The session took place at Milkhouse Studies in Huntington, New York, and since the studio was in an old farmhouse, there were plenty of great photographic opportunities. I then captured footage from a gig at Dizzy’s Coca Cola Club in New York City during a centenary tribute concert for bassist Charles Mingus and used the Dehancer presets as part of my editing process.

To be frank, I never thought of using film simulations for my professional work, as I considered them more or less a novelty to use for fun and family photos. I guess you can attribute this to my semi-old-school mentality, but I usually create my own looks when I’m retouching, mostly grading colors, or creating whatever colors and tones I want in my studio. My experience editing these two batches of footage using Dehancer’s film emulations helped change my perspective on this issue.

Either way, I found I could use the simulations to take a great photo and make it look great. I was happy that I didn’t have to spend a ton of time creating a unique look for each image, but with just one click I could preview and figure out if that was more or less where I wanted to go. The ability to fine-tune each preset also helped get the images exactly where I imagined them and made the whole process quick and rewarding.

Is it time to ditch the Fuji film simulations?

Before my fellow Fuji fans get upset, the short answer is obviously no. But, after a few days of testing Dehancer, I came to some conclusions. More importantly, I realized that I preferred applying emulations in post rather than shooting in simulation mode with one of my Fuji cameras, for several reasons. First, I like the ability to preview many sims to see which one I prefer rather than having to choose an in-camera sim before firing the shutter. Second, the workflow is so easy and fast that it didn’t add tedious time to my editing process.

I found, however, that the looks of Fuji films, especially Reala and Provia, seemed a bit heavy when it came to color cast. I haven’t found this to be true with the Kodak and Agfa presets, and I think Dehancer has some work to do on their Fuji emulations in particular.

Finally, there will always be times when I want to avoid editing altogether and choose to use Fuji’s exceptional built-in film simulations. But, having a huge variety of emulations at hand definitely makes me less adept at using camera options in the future.


As I mentioned, I used to think of movie simulations as more or less a novelty, but using Dehancer made me believe in emulations as part of my professional workflow. In my real-world test which included challenging lighting situations, I found the results very pleasing and appreciated the ability to easily edit photos to create a variety of great looks. In the future, I’m sure I’ll use Dehancer more as part of a well-rounded workflow.

Lomography Konstruktor F review: Build your own 35mm film SLR Wed, 04 May 2022 14:08:10 +0000

Specialists in film photography, Lomography has always sought to make photography fun again, rather than developing the sharpest lenses or providing the most detailed images. In other words, it’s almost the exact opposite of most other camera manufacturers, eager to push the envelope and get photographers to spend more on their new, improved and more capable products.

It’s safe to say that ‘Lomo’ cameras relied on lo-fi, Heath Robinson-style, plastic cog-powered charm as a selling tool, rather than the very latest technology. So what if the resulting images are a little fuzzy or the colors look a little weird, when it comes to the overall “experience”?
