the true rocker…

Before my son left for campus again, I forced him to give me five minutes. At the same time, I am adding one cover version that he recorded when he was about 14 years old. Today’s photos are dedicated to High key style 😉🙂🙃📷🎸

  • Pentacon Six TL, CZ Flektogon 50mm Zebra, Ilford HP5Plus
  • Nikon D800, Sigma 17-35mm (intro)

I was just one year old…

…and negative had just been made that expired two years later. it took him 50 years without a single month to reach my camera. To my first camera. Happy birthday old Fomapan 21…🙂🙃📷🍾🎞

ArT….

A new image has appeared in our home gallery. Whenever my daughter asked me what I wanted for my birthday or Christmas, I always wanted a picture from her💖🖌🎨🖼🙃🙂📷

  • Nikon F50, Nikkor 1,4/50mm, Fomapan F400

few shots…

One of the photos caught my eye already on the negative when I took it out of the fixer… I spent a while trying to remember where I took the picture 🙂📷🙃🌞

It started with a fog today and it will end with a fog…

…but it was still nice, even though there was almost nothing to see in the valley 🙂📷🙃

the ordinary shot, half shot, double shot….

the opening photo is a classic… 35mm film in a medium format camera. When taking the second photo, I underestimated the speed of synchronization – I still like the photo. The third picture is a classic double exposure – my wife and a cup of coffee. Either she was coffee in a past life or she will be after reincarnation. Coffee and my wife are inseparable☕🙂🙃📷

  3. Canon EOS 500N, Canon 50mm, Fujifilm C200

it was november 1982…

And one negative film left the production line, which arrived at my home after forty years. I got it at a auction for about two bucks. He waited a week for a sunny day in the camera. Such old negatives are suitable to be used either with a flash or on sunny days.The result exceeded my expectations. A friendly couple of adventurers allowed me to photograph them and their horses. I was a little worried that this 40’s old negative film would disappoint and embarrass me. Neither the film nor my old Fujica failed. It was a chance encounter and I only had a 135mm lens(yes, the Takumar with the destroyed front lens) with me. In the second camera I had a color Fujifilm C200. Although again I am comparing the incomparable, the winner is clear. 40 year old film.

analog of Jared

So I finally managed to talk Jared into trying analog photography again. He is still afraid of messing it up. I told him that all he should do with the black and white photo is try to fill the area with what he is photographing. For cropping, some negative films are not suitable at all due to graininess. But otherwise let him take pictures of what he wants and how he wants. So, yesterday, at the windmill, he took analog photos for the second time in his life. I developed and scanned the film for him. The post-process in LR went quite well for him. The last photo was taken when I told him to take a picture of the landscape from a moving car with a longer shutter speed. After coloring(in Neural), it gave a hint of the photographer’s impressionism🙂🙃📷 I think he might enjoy the analog process…

on an old windmill….

…i found a declaration of love on the wall. I understand these forms of declaration. Even if they are in places where they shouldn’t be. But you can’t explain to oxytocin. Basically, I envy them… Have You a beautiful Saturday dears🌞💖

what imprint is left behind is up to us…

Today I thought of adding one photo to the collection of photos from our small airport. It’s just fun… but have you ever thought about what we leave behind for the future?

Fool on the hill 2…

So this is the penultimate set of photos shoted on our hills. In winter, there is a normal layer of snow of around 1.5m…in places even 4m. Which I already experienced once in the garden at our house in 2004 🙂🙃📷

The ordinary shots …

Always (that is, at least most of the time) the entire negative is filled with images. At the beginning and at the end of it, there is always a piece of space where nothing could be photographed. So I made a smiley face on that piece with a marker. The following few photos are taken during a trip to the hills in our area🙂🙃📷

my resit of Praktica BCA…

I put the old Praktica BCA camera through a thorough test again. Unfortunately, a tripod is needed when shooting with longer lenses. The unknown value of the shutter speed (in the viewfinder there is only something like a traffic light, which does not take into account the used focal length of the lens) was a counterproductive step. Yes, it was not a camera for professionals… nevertheless, an uncertain result could discourage a beginner from taking further pictures. Anyway, now I know how to use this camera.

I’ll start from the end…

It was beautiful there. No ice cream, no wifi, no internet. This is what our short trip to beautiful nature looked like. Before I develop the films and find out what I took, I’ll bore you with the photos I took with a Nikon DSLR and four lenses. I estimate about 400 total acceptable images. And don’t worry… I’m not going to put them all here at once 🙂🙃📷
