Malin Hellesø – Featured IPA member

Bio   I’m a 43 year old woman from Sweden. I work as a photographer and I work a lot with my own projects. Photography has fascinated me since I borrowed my parents’ camera (an Instamatic) at 10 years of age, and since then I have been photographing. My photography rests entirely in the personal emotions. In my images you’re supposed to look deeper inside, beneath the surface and the shell. I make images that go deeper inside the individual/the person. The personal affects very much the expressions I choose to convey… Read More

The Friday of Others Dubai, the city of lights, famous for its rapid economic growth, has become a major tourist destination. But the city is overcast by shadows, including the living conditions of its labor force. This foreign underclass community builds this city and dedicates its life to it by working over 10 hours a day, 6 days a week and 11 months a year in difficult conditions while locals and western expats who seem ignorant of their living conditions look on. Human rights are part of UAE laws, promising fair treatment… Read More

Gear Review: Sony RX100 Mark 3 by Rick Bronks

The Sony RX100 Mark 3 http://www.sony.co.uk/electronics/cyber-shot-compact-cameras/dsc-rx100m3 PRICE: (as of July 2014) : £699 I must get asked 2 or 3 times a week about which camera to buy – and it usually always ends up with the same conclusion. A camera is only as good as the days you have it with you, so it’s really up to you to decide if you want a camera that you keep with you all the time or only pull out on special occasions. I thought I’d write this one as a user, and possibly… Read More

The Leica 90mm Macro Elmar and the Macro Adapter M by Jono Slack

  Introduction  Quite out of the blue, Leica announced these two products at the 100 year celebrations at Wetzlar. I think most people were taken unawares. The lens had been in development for a long time, I had a prototype version in 2013 for testing. The optical design of the lens was the same as the much loved older Macro Elmar, but with some functional refinements to match it with the adapter. In fact, I first spoke to Stefan Daniel and Jesko Oeynhausen about the idea of producing a helicoid adapter for… Read More

Using manual focus lenses on the Leica T – by Jonathan Slack

  Introduction       For several years I’ve been trying out legacy lenses on a variety of cameras. It’s great to be able to reinstate some of the lovely older lenses. I also have an unhealthy collection of M lenses, and although they mostly get used on my M cameras, it’s good to use them on other cameras as well. I’ve tried using M lenses on the Sony A7 (quite good) A7r (not so good) Fuji X-T1, Olympus E-M1 and various other cameras. Some cameras produce colour casts with wider angle… Read More
