" You can make a camera with a can, a matchbox, a room, a box of shoes or whatever you imagine"

Tell us about yourself.

Hi!! My name is Brenda, I´m 27 years old, and I actually work in a professional photo lab. I don´t have formal studies in photography but i´m quite enthusiastic and autodidact.

When and how did the film journey begin for you?

My film journey began when i was 18, my father gave me my first camera for my birthday: A Canon Eos Rebel G. I started reading books and buying films to learn.

What type of film do you usually shoot and what made you choose it?

I like to try with a lot of films, like the green tones of Fuji, the warmness of Kodak, contrast of Ilford and slides of Agfa.

In Black and white i like Ilford, specially FP4 because is a very fine grain film.

What camera makes you click?

I like pinhole cameras. You can make a camera with a can, a matchbox, a room, a box of shoes or whatever you imagine.

Then, I also like Canon cameras.

Between black and white and colour film which would you choose?

I think i like both, it depends in what you are planing to do.

What lenses do you use?

Canon lenses. 18- 200, 50 mm, now i´m looking for a gran angular lens. I also use filters with different effects like red spot, multiple image, polarizer, homemade image slizer, with different tones etc.

Do you make any experiments on film?

I made my own redscales films, cross processing, love experimenting with film soup, i´ve tried soaking films in different solutions before exposing like lemon, detergent, salt, pee, tea, they all gives you unexpected results.

I also like alternative process of photography. Now I´m trying with pinhole photography, cyanotypes and i`´d love to learn about gum bichromate, anthotypes, wet plate collodion process... Still Learning!!

Tell us about the paper development experiment. What do you do there?

Now I´m building up my own lab, i bought some chemicals and i have an enlarger: a Durst M370 Easycolor that alows me triying with rayographs, photograms, experiment with development. Now i´m preparing a serie of photos in wich I have exposed the hole paper and then only develop part of this with a dropper.
