Analogue Spotlight: The Live Stream

By Paul McKay

Last week was originally planned to be The Photography Show - with the world's FIRST* 'Analogue Spotlight'! A collection of companies, brands and community projects focused on their love of film. An analogue bubble in a typically-digital trade show - with live demos, talks and presentations to help educate and entertain photographers of all shades.

And then suddenly - and for obvious reasons - it didn't happen!

But the community couldn't just let the moment pass without some form of entertainment/eduction. So in the absence of anything better :-) Graeme (of Sunny16 fame) and myself decided to host the first ever Analogue Spotlight ...

...LIVE Stream!

What could we promise?

  1. Entertainment - yes
  2. Education - possibly
  3. A quiz - definitely!
  4. A video interview - hopefully
  5. Giveaways of Kodak film - yes
  6. A live large format shoot, from concept to development - oh hellsyeah

It's a long video - as it tried to supplant an entire weekend's worth of fun into a single session - so please feel free to watch it in chunks!

Watch Now!

And what about the photos we took during that live shoot?

Here they are! In all their large-format glory :-)

Summer of Phoenix: A Holiday in Greece

I spent last week on the Greek coast - the southern tip of the Peloponnese to be exact - and took the opportunity to shoot some Harman Phoenix 35mm film! While it was brilliant fun to test it through the dark winter days when it first launched in December 2023, I've been waiting to see it shine in the sun.
