Lightleaks ( light leaks - steaks of light across film negatives caused by faulty foam seals ) is the website that showcases the analogue photography of Russ the Webmaster. Here you will find photos taken mostly with film and also some digital images. Well i've started taking more digital images now I have had time to source a couple of really good cameras. I also collect cameras and repair them where possible. I use most types of film that are available and even some that have long gone.

People say film is dead, Well is not! With people like the impossible project and lomography manufacturing & selling film and cameras its alive and kicking. There is also new 55 film who are working on re-inventing polaroid peel apart 4x5 film. It seems that people are coming back to film or did they ever leave.
