A minute of vanity

In 35mm, Film, Personal favourites by Ivan0 Comments

Some time ago I contacted a guy who runs Emulsive.org website asking how I could contribute to the community. All I could think about was to translate an article or write some kind of film review or my impressions of film photography or something like that. Hardly had I expected what will come out of this. Last week my feature …

Red on Blue

In 35mm, Film, Personal favourites by Ivan0 Comments

Recently I’ve finally started to develop colour film at home. Having bought the chemicals several months ago I couldn’t get it going, you know, I had to make the chemicals from powder concentrates and for that I had to bring water to a certain temperature and in order to do that I had to warm water… ugh. Sometimes I felt too lazy …

As I’ve obviously missed the time for any looking back posts for the year 2016 (maybe it’s for the best, considering all the negative things), I’d like to jump on a New Year resolutions train.

In Digital, Personal favourites by Ivan2 Comments

I’ve been looking through my photos choosing candidates to be published in a portfolio and found this one. This photograph comes from those times when I didn’t have a camera of my own and borrowed my mother-in-law’s Pentax. It’s also far from what I came to shoot later, but nevertheless I love this picture for its colours and sunlight, and …

In 35mm, Behind the photo, Film, Lucky moments, Personal favourites by Ivan0 Comments

This photo is special to me, though it’s far from perfect. Almost two years ago, when I only started taking pictures, I was very impressed by the works of some true street photographers, like Matt Stuart or David Gibson to name a few.  All those cunning, funny or miraculously lucky moments captured by the photographers inspired me to take my …
