the long exposures…

I didn’t want to sleep yesterday. I thought of taking a few pictures. I set up three cameras with different film sensitivities, pointed the lenses at the Polaris and opened the shutters. The opening image is Fomapan 400 exposed for 20 minutes. The second Fujifilm 200 image exposed for 30 minutes and the last image is the least sensitive Acros 100 II film,exposed for a full hour and a half. But since my vision is getting worse, I couldn’t focusing well. I would slap myself😠📷🌟.On the other hand, analog startrails are not very common. Two Perseids were also captured on the initial image – an experienced observer will spot them right away

the cows and the star…

the day before yesterday, right after I took my wife to the station in the morning, I rushed to the hill to photograph the rising of our nearest star. I could have written that I wanted to photograph the sunrise, but this is also true. On the way I noticed a herd of cows having breakfast… breakfast in the grass and in the mist under the light of star. Romantic.

Maybe yes…

I wondered if the location of the bins was ideal in terms of promoting healthy eating. But a little decadence can’t hurt…

And I’ll add a few ordinary shots.Despite the fact that the sky was gray and it looked like it would start raining at any moment, it did not detract from the colors and the BW photos got their atmosphere

Battle DSLR(Jared) vs. SLR(Mic)

Today I read such a sad article that one era of cameras is ending. Both Nikon and Canon have announced the end of DSLR development and will continue with mirrorless only. Progress cannot be stopped. Especially when 99.9% of people take photos with their mobile phones. And the best camera is always the one you have with you. Which is indeed a mobile. I didn’t even get to really make friends with DSLRs and now I’ll be able to buy their last ever best models. Fortunately, after all these decades, I know that the photographer and the lens make the photo, Everything else in between is just a box.

If I write….

… in a post that I enjoyed taking photos the day before, there is a real possibility that I will too many posts with too many photos… 😁📷

the photographed photographer…

Every good photographer should be photographed… just to know what it’s like to be in front of the lens. During yesterday’s trip, it happened a couple of times that I photographed Jarda on analog and he photographed me on a DSLR in an unguarded moment. We really enjoyed yesterday. We were also there to say goodbye to the Jan Saudek exhibition, which ends this month 🤗📷 Happy Sunday for all🌞🌞🌞

BW day…

It rained today after the sweltering heat…which is the perfect time to hide in the darkroom and try to turn back time.

color double exposure …

One of my friends loves beer … he always amuses me when he says: The world is so beautiful, so why not see it twice 😉📷📷.I sometimes use the second exposure to complete the photo with bokeh

art mirroring

it’s the easiest way. After the first exposure, you turn the camera upside down and take the second exposure. Today was bad weather so the result is not quite top

The interim report

Daffodil flowers still do not have open flowers. And every day I choose a flower for a medium format. Nevertheless, when there is a film loaded on 35mm cameras, I will not forgive myself for taking a photo

the personal Everglades…

Florida is really far from us, so in the morning I go to a valley where beavers have created a beautiful piece of wildlife. Only those crocodiles are not here..

big “Art” :)

When the shot is not according to my liking, because not everything will always work out, the post-process in Photoshop begins. Then I will color the photo, crop it, smear it … as long as I enjoy it 🙂
