[raulpc] week 21 – Reala

This is one thing that fascinates me, shooting with film and film cameras, that is, if you use a digital camera, you have ONE, the, digital camera, and that is it! You shoot and all the thought work is done afterwards, you do not have to think on the set. With film, and film cameras,…

Week #26 – Back again?

For those who will remember me, my last post was in week #17 and it was called “Taking a Break” . By then I had some really bad results with film – all being my own fault. So I stuffed it all away and turned to digital. To simply point and click and transfer the…

Week 24:Colour me unimpressed

I had always kind of understood the changes in contrast but what I had never really looked at was how filters render different colours in B&W. Thus I took 4 pictures…
