Self-developed Rollei film and a question

In 35mm, Film by Ivan2 Comments

Some time ago I bought a couple of rolls of Rollei Retro 80S to try out. Last weekend I finally developed and scanned them and here some results. As you may have noticed some of the photos turned out very contrasty, while others are really fine. And there were some really gruesome results as well, on which later down the …

Rose Man

In 35mm, Film by Ivan2 Comments

  After some relatively clear and straightforward challenges, this one is again… challenging. I didn’t quite get the idea of transmogrifying after the first read, but now I hope to have found a good match for the topic.   It might be too late now for the Halloween costume ideas, but this rose bouquet outfit seems quite scary.

Sukkah

In Mobile by Ivan5 Comments

This week’s photo challenge coincides with the week of Sukkot holiday, and in this respect, it was quite easy to decide what photo to choose.

Time travel or ghosts of the past

In 35mm, Film by Ivan0 Comments

Do you ever have a feeling when looking at a modern film photo that it was shot a long time ago? Correct me if I’m wrong but nothing in this shot can give away the fact it was shot in 2012. To me, it looks like one of the pictures my father took in the 1970s or something. It’s so …

Q is for quest

In 35mm, Film by Ivan0 Comments

I don’t do travel photography in the form of landscapes, extreme shots or other “follow me” stuff. But as a amateur photographer I’m always in search for something. And this is my quest: to try and see beauty, irony, paradox, usual and unusual, unique and common in our daily life. I’m on a quest for the shot. I don’t say that …

In the Park

In 35mm, Film by Ivan0 Comments

I don’t remember posting this photo and I’m too lazy to check the archives 😉 As I’ve missed the previous photo challenge that happened two weeks ago, I’d like to catch up. Here is an old and mysterious lady in a park on the edge of a bench. My guess would be it was shot with Zenit B camera with …
