Look at his face when he says “playing is beautiful”. Maybe then you understand a little more why I simply love taking photos with old analog cameras.
The analog is always fascinating, because we all want the surprise.
With digital, there is no surprise left, you know immediately if it’s good or not.
A few weeks ago (which is now almost half a year ago, that was when I started this article ;) ) I had the chance to try out something really special. Digital Mediumformat. Special at least for my budget over here, and well I shoot 99% analog for my free projects or artsy stuff anyway. Thanks to Simone Betz of ROVA Design and Lukha I got the chance to snap a few shots with the Pentax 645z. I’m an avid Pentax 67 user and lover, so I had a little doubts if she would forgive me cheating on her. Well actually the doubts vaporized into meaningless once I took a peek through the viewfinder. Holly cow!
I was in the studio with Lea Sophie anyway, so I snapped a few portraits with her.
I’m not going to write a detailed review about the Pentax 645z. Just a few things that pop my mind. mehr →
After my “longstanding planned” session with Cat Atonia, I was quickly and lovely jumped on by her friend “Redsky” and asked if it would be possible to take shoot spontaneously with her also. I love to be lovingly jumped on and Redsky seemed to be really likable. A good combination. So why not? My past experience in all these years has been that many simply not dare to ask, which is a pity, really.
I’m short posting posting of the last weeks. Which were packed with spontaneous Projects and Jobs. Which is great, but somehow it is always that those swarm together after the summer vacations. And then there is also the preparations for the exhibition on the 23rd to 25th of September. Let’s start with the results of the quick “getting to know session” – silly phrase – with Redsky.
It took us “just” a year, many short hurdles and last-minute cancellations, until we finally found a date. “Haste makes waste.” like they say, and sometimes thats even right. The session with Cat Atonia was full of inspiration, new terrain for me, experiments and a lot of enjoyable, chit chat. If the communication works out, the photos will work out also. All in all perfect and I won’t carry on with my babbling :)
It remains to say that we did one exciting experiment. Sadly it did not work out. Will be repeated. But thanks for standing around statuesque Cat ;)
