Taken with my Diana F on 120mm colour film 100 ASA.
Brilliant, my dear. Very striking. Very professional. It popped up again so I commented again!!!
Thanks, again. It's nice to hear it's works. I experimented a bit with the in-camera tricks, one of the really cool thing I love about film, and it seems to have paid off.
Are you using real honest to god film????????
Yeah, it was 120mm 100ASA Lomography film with a Diana F camera and I used a few tricks like double exposures and messing about with the light. It's taken a while to get my experimenting to work, though, and a bit pricey and time consuming to develop it but the size of the film lets you do more by not needing to focus and being able to take shots in low light.
Bless you, my son. One of my roommates in colorage was a Master's candidate in photography and I got to share in that process of discovery and transformation. That requires such technical knowledge and it demands such control over your medium. Very impressive. There is nothing like the look of film, either. It can't be duplicated on a screen. Real photographs are going to be rarer and rarer and thus more in demand. Keep with this, it truly is a beautiful work.
Thanks, Val. It's really encouraging to hear that my ideas hit home with some people. Yes, the technical side is a bit of a bugger to master but I'm lucky to have found an easy going enough medium with the Lomography film and cameras that you quickly assimilate the know how and just shoot. Film does make you feel that you have to try that little bit harder to make each one count though too, which helps. I hope to get more done over the coming months, now the days are getting longer and the clocks go forward soon. Thanks for the appreciation, Russ.
This is WONDERFUL!!!!
