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 Helios M44-2 58mm lens and Portra film.
Unrelated to any challenges or projects I just wanted to show this photo and share some of my feeling about it.
This woman on the right, walking away with a baby carrier, is my wife, and this was the reason why I made this photo. Another reason was to test either a Zenit camera (Zenit B it was I guess) or Helios lens or to try out Portra film or everything combined. Actually, it doesn’t matter.
The things is, every time I look at the picture I feel like I’m looking at a 3D miniature model of a real life situation. You know, like when you look at a scale model of a city in a museum.
Maybe it is because of its shallow depth of field effect or maybe it’s something else, but from all of my film photos only this one makes such an impression. It feels so real to the point of being creepy even.
What do you think? How do you feel about it?
