From digital to analog

I am asking myself. Why? Is it a step backward? Is it a good idea to start with analog photography after 10 years in digital media? Should analog photography give me something more than digital photography? Definitely yes!

I finished two analog films. One BW and one Colorful. Welcome, Patrik. This is an absolutely new world for me. No display. No space for mistakes. Only you, the camera and reality around you. I found a magic of photography again. Every shot is in the veil of unknown.

I learned a lot of new things last week which I could use back in digital photography. I take photos at Nikon Fe body + Pentacon Pancolar 50mm f/1,8 + Samyang 85mm f/1,4. I used two films: Fujifilm Superia 400 and Fomapan profi line 400. I really like the process of analog photography! So, enough words. Let´s check my experience. 🙂

Equipment:

Black&white photos (Fomapan 400):

Colorful photos (Fujifilm Superia 400):

Lot of work is waiting for me. I have to learn how to take better and better photos on analog. I am sure that these two analog films weren´t the last ones.! The magic process of analog photography swallowed me so hard. 🙂 And what about you? Do you like analog photography?

Feel free to share♥

  1. I know of the fact that right now, more and more people are attracted to surveillance cameras and the area of pictures. However, really being a photographer, it’s important to first devote so much time frame deciding the exact model of camera to buy and also moving via store to store just so you could possibly buy the most economical camera of the brand you have decided to select. But it doesn’t end just there. You also have to take into consideration whether you can purchase a digital video camera extended warranty. Many thanks for the good recommendations I gathered from your blog site.

  3. Hello. splendid job. I did not anticipate this. This is a fantastic story. Thanks!

  4. Thanks for your publication on this site. From my own personal experience, there are occassions when softening up a photograph may well provide the photographer with an amount of an creative flare. Often however, that soft clouds isn’t exactly what you had at heart and can usually spoil an otherwise good picture, especially if you consider enlarging it.

  5. Hiya, I’m really glad I have found this info. Nowadays bloggers publish only about gossips and web and this is actually annoying. A good website with exciting content, that’s what I need. Thanks for keeping this website, I’ll be visiting it. Do you do newsletters? Can not find it.
