Lomography 100 ISO Color Negative + Nikon N75

Sometimes, nice and simple shots are more than just enough Shot using my very first analog camera, ever . . . the one I bought at BestBuy many years ago, when I was taking Photography 101 class (the only photography class I ever took in my entire life). This camera is very easy to use….

Tethered

If a circus trainer ties a baby elephant to a peg when it was too small and weak to free itself; no matter how large and strong the elephant becomes, it will continue to believe it cannot free itself from its shackle. It is something my younger self can relate. I photographed this series many…

Lomography XPRO 200 ISO 35mm film (Cross Processed)

Not every photo we create needs to be our masterpiece But testing new films for no particular project can be a good learning experience . . . The camera and film I used to create these images: Nikon N75 35mm Film SLR Camera Kit with 28-80mm f3.5-5.6 Nikkor Lens Lomography X-PRO Slide Film 200 35mm…

KONO! Rotwild + Lomo LC-A+ Camera (Take 2)

Not as strong and “contrasty” as other people’s (and my own previous) shots . . . but I like them this way. More nostalgic than intense, with an added tinge of melancholy . . . Save Save Save Save Save

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…

After keeping these photos in wraps for SO many months, I’m thrilled to finally be able to share them! This photo series is one of my favorite series so far because it marks a major turning point in the way I approach my personal photographic projects and the way I retouch my images. At that…

Get ready for some simple, blunt, and effective tips A personal photographic style is something  – or some things – people can see in your works that “tell” them the photos are created by you.
