the four analog shots…

Down below the hill the weather was black and white, so I just took the last four pictures on the Zenit, loaded the briquettes into the car and drove back🙃📷⚫⚪

few older ordinary SLR & DSLR shots…

I am now saving photographic material for analog photography. It’s cold in the darkroom right now anyway, and I don’t want to heat it up too much right now for a few simple photos🙃❄❄❄📷

There were four sunny days ….

…since the beginning of September.The weather is really bad. I’m trying to think of something interesting to photograph in the studio, but I can’t do it very well. That’s why when I have to go down from our hills to the store for some heating, I only take my DSLR. I experimented with using high ISO values to make the resulting images look as analog as possible, without any editing in the editor. Hope you like some pictures 🙃📷

Switch BW shot to color picture…

Although I stood on my tiptoes to see over the hedge, I couldn’t keep my balance and the picture looks different than I wanted. Well, if I already have something on the negative that I wanted to have a little differently, I don’t mind playing around with the image a bit. Sometimes I try to make a color image from a scanned black and white negative. Just use the High Pass filter and Curves functions in PS to do this. It is much faster work than choosing from an endless number of presets🙃📷

BW angle of view…

There wasn’t much light, and with a more sensitive film some of the pictures could have been more cheerful🙃📷

the other world…

We know more about some space objects than we do about what lies beneath the surface of the water here on Earth. It is the closest, other world where, as with space objects, we most often photograph the surface.🙃📷

T.G.M

When TGM is said in our country, most (I hope) think of our first president.Tomas Garrigue Masaryk, referred to as T.G.M., TGM or President Liberator, was a Czechoslovak statesman, philosopher, sociologist and pedagogue, the first president of the Czechoslovak Republic.Czechoslovakia was a state in Central Europe that existed in the years 28.10.1918–31.12.1992, with the exception of the period of World War II, when it had its government-in-exile abroad. The country included the territory of Bohemia, Moravia, Czech Silesia, Slovakia and, until 1939, Subcarpathian Rus. We kind of keep changing the names of our area. People live here who have never left their town. Nevertheless, they could have been born in Austria-Hungary, Czechoslovak Republic, the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia, the Czechoslovak Socialist Republic, the Czechoslovak Federative Republic, and so far the last name of our state is the Czech Republic.

instant mood…

a few pictures from Sunday’s trip among people.Too bad we had to return home in the evening. But I shot until the last bit of light my cameras could capture.🙃📷

under the bridge…

A few shots from expired film(1982) Fomapan N30. This film was obviously very poorly stored.Nevertheless, thanks to its damage, it was possible to produce several thematic photos.The more successful pictures are already taken on new film, but on a partially functional Yashica FR with a small damage to the front member of the lens.🙃📷

the fallen in the fall…

Autumn leaves are probably only enjoyed by children and photographers. The painter will paint it even in winter🙃📷

Misha….

According to our calendar, today is a Michaelmas holiday💕. A fortnight ago, while rummaging through my tools, I discovered undeveloped VX200 film. I had no idea what was on it. I used the C41 process and was hoping to get some photos of it with the scanner. We figured it was taken on some Olympus compact my wife was using at the time(2006)🙂🙃📷

don’t let me down ….

I don’t believe in stairs that lead down from heaven.These ordinary stairs lead to a small stage in our park. No superstar has ever attempted this staircase.But it’s a pitty. If this staircase is good enough for me to take a picture, it will definitely be good for all the superstars. For one of the most famous performances, the Beatles had to do with the ordinary roof of the house🙂🙃📷
