LIGHTLEAKS ANALOGUE PHOTOGRAPHY (LIGHT LEAKS)

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/polaroid originals and lomography manufacturing & selling film and cameras its alive and kicking. There is also Supersense who are working on re-inventing polaroid peel apart film. It seems that people are coming back to film or did they ever leave.

– LIGHT LEAKS –

I use various cameras from the last 80 years including Canon, Nikon, Leica and Polaroid, I also have a fridge with most types of film including 35mm, 110, 127, 120, APS, Instant and 4×5 and 10×8.

If you want to get back into film then visit eBay where you can buy both cameras and film at really cool prices and then take your exposed film to Max Spielmann where they will be happy to process it for you. Or why not do it yourself it is easier than you think and you can get everything you need from Silverprint. You don’t need a darkroom to process film just a light proof bag and a processing kit! So what are you waiting for dump the digital and give film a go!
