KONO! Kolorit 400 Tungsten + Zenit 412LS

I shot these images at noon on a sunny day, and took the lens off my SLR every couple of shots to fix my camera’s mirror (I love my Zenit 412LS; but, every once in a while, its mirror gets stuck). I thought I must’ve wasted the whole roll of film. But, I got the…

Dreamy and Sometimes Painterly Images Shot Using Diana F+ Camera

Diana F+ is a fascinating camera! It’s known to create distorted, saturated, and stylized images. Some of the photos I captured using this camera come out very painterly . . . very soft, and either streaked with light leaks, or decorated with very strong vignettes.  The rest, however, simply look very distorted. So far, my…

Rainy Day with Revolog Tesla 1

I always wanted to test Revolog Tesla 1 film on a rainy day. I figured that the film’s lightning-like special effect would look great with rain water and wet pavements. Revolog Tesla 1 is a 12-exposure ISO 200 expired 35mm film. According to the product description, blue or white flashes would appear on random spots…

Water Puddle, Noguchi Garden, Agfa Vista Plus 400, and Zenit 412LS

Grainy, desaturated (with pale lavender tint), and very sharp Zenit 412LS has become my #1 favorite analog camera ever since I used it for the first time a couple of months ago. I love how it captures textures, and there is a beautiful yet undefinable quality no digital camera and photo manipulation can create. Combined…

Revolog Volvox Experimental Film

Many weeks ago, I had the pleasure of testing this incredible experimental film; and I’m completely in love with it! The resulting images are vibrant and surrealistic. You’ll never know how the images are going to turn out before you develop and scan (or print) the negatives. But, so far, I love every single image…

Creepy or Mysterious?: Closed-Up Room Stock Photo

I often turn my living room into a simple set (or two) for photo shoots … For this, I used a Classic Tile Floor Drop by Savage Universal, covered my chair and dress form with crumpled bed sheets, and hung some fabrics on my favorite Manfrotto background support. The Manfrotto background support is not exactly…

Going Analog : Nikon N75 + Kodak GC/Ultramax 400

Karatsu Kunchi 2016 Trivia: This festival features floats called #hikiyama, the largest ones being 6.8 meters tall & 3 TONS in weight. This particular one was built in 1854 (yep, that’s not a typo). ~ o 0 o ~ Last month, I managed to find my very first analog camera. I abandoned it at my…

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…

[Idiosyncratic Monday] Slush

These past few weeks, I’ve been trying to get used to photograph things using my two new-ish analogue cameras: The LC-A+ and the Zenit 412LS SLR. So, I photographed this week’s Idiosyncratic Monday photos using my analogue cameras. But, since it’s going to take a few days before I finish the rolls and develop the…
