Going Analog

Going analog . . . and starting to get what the fuss is all about

I love the desaturated colors, foamy incoming tide, and the surprisingly sharp details . . .

I find the effect beautiful, soft, and dreamy

There is something nostalgic about these photos . . . something we cannot replicate using VSCO Film, Adobe Lightroom, and Photoshop …

This is how the same scene looks like when I photographed it using my iPhone 6. It’s so bad, but it lacks the dreamy and nostalgic quality of the image I created using Zenit 412LS DSLR and Fuji Natura 1000

miu-vermillion_analog-photography-vs-iphoneography_003 It looks very different from the one I photographed using the analog DLSR . . . mainly due to focal lengths differences . . . but also because I can’t adjust iPhone camera’s shutter speed and aperture. I can edit it using Snapseed, VSCO, or other apps . . .ย  but there is no way I can make it look as nostalgic and dreamy. But, not all photos need to look nostalgic and dreamy. (Check the two images I shot using an iPhone on the bottom of this post)

Anyway, THIS is the first time I’ve seenย  a real, unintended, and unsimulated light leak!

I can’t adjust the shutter speed and aperture of LC-A+ camera either. At first, it made me a little nervous because I couldn’t imagine what the of images I was capturing and had to wait for a couple of days to find out . . .

It was the first time I shot anything with this camera after all

I tried capturing a few images using Lomography Color Negative Film (ISO 800) as well . . .

This film is great for the times when I need/want to create brighter and more saturated images.

I photographed a style editorial using very different kind of analog camera + film as well: Fuji Instax Wide. But, it’s for another post and another time.
