Analog,
Film Photography

It’s romantic, poetic, we admit. But there’s more to it.

When you want to create more honest pictures, go deeper, film have a tendency to be of better help, teach us how to make such images, at least from our experience.

Besides that, it also gives us the ability to create hand-made prints in the darkroom, using traditional techniques and achieving archival qualities that are used, for example, in art galleries.

It doesn’t mean that everything has to be shot on film though, and in our work both digital and film has their place.

On this page you’ll find more info about our hand-made prints and scroll down for a gallery shot all on film.

1 Liquid Emulsion Prints

This custom artistic photograph is the most delicate thing that we do. We work with beautiful handmade watercolor paper from a mill where papers are produced continuously since 16th century. Martin does coating of the paper with liquid emulsion using brush and after that a photograph is enlarged on the paper from film. We frame the photograph with a float mount, so that the photograph appears to be levitating in the frame.

— 1 hour coating the paper with liquid emulsion

— 24 hours of drying in complete darkness

— 3 hours enlarging a photograph from film negative onto the paper

— 1 hour washing under running water

— 10 hours drying

— 1 hour mounting into a frame


1. Developing & scanning
the film to get a negative that we can work with, and a digital image to share online and print. Each film is processed manually by Martin – developed and scanned frame by frame, which gives him absolute control over the result.


2. – 3. Coating & Printing
– We coat the hand-made watercolor paper with photographic emulsion using brush in a complete darkness (but a faint red light). After 24 hours of drying the photograph is enlarged on the paper in the darkroom from film negative.


4. Finished print
ready to be framed using a float mount, where it appears to be levitating in the frame, and hung on some cool spot.
