The new site is sleek and clean and offers a more comprehensive view of Colorama’s products and services. They’ve even included an instructions section. In addition to their renowned selection of background paper, you can easily check out new product and browse for paper based on their intended use. Have a look…

Yes, it’s been a while since we’ve posted a submission to our Photo Critique section. But that doesn’t mean we don’t have some great shots for all of you critics out there to offer up your opinions.

Kodachrome reached it’s heyday in the 50s and 60s when it was favoured by still and motion-picture photographers for its rich tones and…
