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…

Impossible Project I-1 Camera + 600 Film

For those of you who are curious what kind of images Impossible Project I-1 camera creates, this post is for you. I got this camera during my trip to Japan. I wasn’t able to find I-1 films over there, so I used the Polaroid 600 Type films instead. It’s not the easiest camera to bring…

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…

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…

[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…

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…

[Idiosyncratic Monday 001]

Things to jolt brain synapses awake on a Monday morning ☆ Once a week, I juxtapose a number of unrelated items together and photograph them. The resulting photos are often surreal, and – sometimes – turn out to be the starting points of my future projects. P.S. Junk shop items often make the most interesting…
