Fine Art Photography: Photographs Within Photograph

Even if it’s only once, I really must give this a try . . . These images are also part digital photography, part analog photography (KONO! Rotwild + Fuji Instax Wide), and part digital photo manipulation. The digital image was shot using Canon 5DS R with 70-200mm lens, lit with¬† Profoto B1 monolight + a…

Playing with Light

Just one of my many midnight experiments . . . Throwing light, creating shadows, playing with reflective objects, and trying various camera settings.   Save

Hybrid Photography: 40% digital photography + 40% analog photography + 20% digital photo manipulation I made a number of presets so I can repeat and automate the process. (And, in case you are wondering, the analog part of the photo was shot using KONO! Rotwild) Photographer and Retoucher: MIU VERMILLION Stylist: LEONID GUREVICH Hair Stylist:…

[Art Photography] Accedie

Back to my old tricks . . . I made a bunch of presets back in 2014, and I’m reusing them to create these . . . But, two and a half year of constant practice has refined my technique to a certain degree. Check my old work here and here for comparison. (Model: Yukiro…

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 . . . [adinserter name=”Recommendation Ad”]

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…

Lomochrome Purple (35mm and 120 mm)

I always wanted to try photographing things using Lomochrome Purple films. Here is what the Lomography website says about the film: “This color negative film gives you a surreal analogue experience with its color shifting abilities . . . Blue becomes green, green becomes purple, pink becomes yellow. Red tones stay red, which keeps natural…

Defrag [Me]

One of the things we can do with unused photos from a fashion editorial shoot: Experiment!

Just the way I used to do it …

Slow shutter speed, no flash, no tripod, and not-so-low f-stop . . . some of the things that used to baffle the people I worked with . . . especially during fashion shoots. Throw in the fact I used a 24-70mm lens for everything . . . (no portrait lens?! *gasp*) . . . I…

Lensbaby Spark | Part 2 + Idiosyncratic Monday 002

As I mentioned in a previous blog post, looking at the world through the filter of Lensbaby Spark makes me to see and think about light sources – and their reflections – differently. When I point the lens randomly (without focusing on specific people or objects), most of the times, the only things that look…
