Afgelopen oud & nieuw heb ik Jordan geholpen met het installeren van een foto-studio in z'n eigen kamer. Natuurlijk moesten we het uitproberen, en dit is het resultaat:
My friend Vlad trains at Raw Power Baarn. A few months ago I went to one of his training sessions, and I was very impressed by not only their strength of body but also of the mind. Vlad knows exactly what kind of signals his body sends, which pain he can push through, and when to stop.
Most of the photos I shot on Ilford Delta 3200. Back then I still used an old light meter that turned out to be very inaccurate in dark situations, so unfortunately the film was heavily underexposed. I'm quite happy with the result I got, though, it came out much better than I expected (after I did a lot of measurements and printed with the highest filtration for the most contrast).
Dit jaar zijn we weer naar Kroatië gegaan, en hebben we een heel aantal 360/180-graden panorama's geschoten. Daarnaast ook een hoop zwart-wit foto's met mijn Hasselblad 500 C/M. Hier onder vind je er alvast twee, de rest moet ik nog afdrukken en scannen.
A week ago my friend Janet asked for a photographer on Facebook. The next day she stood in front of me, modeling outdoors in Amsterdam. I had packed all kind of gear - digital camera, flashes, light stands, umbrella, reflectors, analogue camera, the whole shebang. Only I had forgotten to bring any memory cards... so I left all the digital stuff in the bag, and only used my trusty Chinon CS with Kodak Tri-X 400 film.
I got the negatives developed and scanned, and here are the results!
Ever since I got two old cameras for my birthday last year, I've been drawn more and more towards analogue photography. You know, the kind that involves negatives and chemical processing, and where you don't have to worry about getting dust on your sensor. There is a certain mistery in not knowing how the photo will turn out to be. There really is a thrill in cycling to the photo store and looking at the negatives on their light table. Also I seem to stay more "in the flow" while shooting, rather than breaking it by inspecting the LCD display. This worked very well for the shoot with Selina. And finally I just love the look of real black & white photos made with old optics!
There are downsides, of course. The major one is that it seems to be impossible to scan an entire negative without having one or two cat hairs on them...
