Under cover of darkness

Where do I start.. Today we got our hands on one of those beautiful analog cameras and went on quick trip in the area to snap dew pictures for our project.

Look at this beauty….

I must admit that 24 pictures that I had on my film wasn’t enough for me. Maybe if I didn’t take pictures of random things like people’s dogs I would be alright. I am more of a paparazzi than a photographer because I don’t focus on taking a picture and try to adjust features to make it as good as it can possibly get but instead I snap pictures like a maniac.

Going into the dark room to roll the film on the wheel and place it in the container was an experience an a half. First of all it was as dark as it can get and it felt like I am entering some sort of excecusion room. Good luck to whoever suffers from  Nyctophobia or Claustrophobia. I went in with one of the other students and I must say it does help as even though you cannot see each other you can still lend a helping hand.

This is our studio where the procedure of turning the film into images took place. We are a generation of digital technology where taking a picture for some is as simple as just pressing a button. This was actually time consuming and required focus.

I must say that my enthusiasm for today’s session was very much noticeabale as it was a very new experience and also I got to use a camera that as a kid I used to play with back home.

I feel like my motivation and inspiration is back after a long Christmas break.

Have you ever wondered what the world looks like behind the shattered glass? Well if you haven’t then I am still going to show you

Here is me playing around with an actual film which we will use in the next session.

I quite like how editing it in the photoshop has given it that retro, old look.
