Film Photography

These Early 1900s Collodion Images of Iceland Will Transport You To Another World

Here at Fstoppers, we definitely share a lot of photos made with cutting edge techniques and the latest technology, and while this is great for making everyday things look pretty snazzy, it's easy to overlook the historical value that photography can have. This collection of glass plate negatives by photographer Magnús Ólafsson are an amazing look at a culture that you most likely had never paid much thought to.

"Into The Mind" A Trailer Worth Watching

The guys over at Sherpas Cinema sure know know to put together a epic video. Traveling to ethereal locations and filming the sports best athletes is definitely a winning combination, add the Sherpas behind a camera to film it all and you get one hell of a movie. The Sherpa's filming style is on a completely different level than the rest of the playing field. They have some cool cinematography tricks like at 2:35, which they've done in several of their other films. I'm guessing they do something similar to Mike's last post to get that effect. I always get excited when I see they released a new trailer.

A Chemical History Of Photography

When I bought my first DSLR 4 years ago, I offered a very enthusiastic "SAYONARA!" to the film era. This wasn't because I'm not grateful for the journey that photography has endured to end up where it is, but because my ADHD spark plug of a mind needed a process that was faster and more efficient than it's film and darkroom roots. Even with the mindset that I have towards the film era and the process of early photography, this video is pretty cool and goes through a brief history of photography via the paradigm of a chemist. Enjoy!

A New Take On The 365 Project: One Second Of Video Every Day For a Year

Everyone who has ever taken any interest in photography has thought about attempting to take one picture a year in order to fuel creative growth or to create an interesting and varied body of work in a relatively short time span. Jonathon Britnell put his own spin on the 365 project (technically a 366) by shooting one second of video every day for a year and compiling into a very cool documentary look at his life over the last year.

Projecteo: The Tiny Instagram Projector

Like it or not, Instagram isn't going anywhere. I personally love Instagram because I can snap a photo, post it, and share it with everyone who follows me in less than a minute. With that being said though, I do miss the times I spent as a kid, looking at projected slide film with my family on the holidays. Now thanks to Projecteo I can have those times back again!

Chest Hair. Everywhere. You're Welcome?

Photographer Ingrid Berthon-Moine was born in France, works out of London and loves a man covered in hair more than Freddie Mercury ever could have. Okay, I don't really know how she likes her men, but in 2010 she created a collection called "V" which features the glory of chest hair ranging from full bush to barely visible. It is a series of 15 C-Type photographs of men's chest hair. Have fun interwebs, enjoy!
