More personal work - film photography

Hello Guys,

I have been shooting more and more on traditional film these days.
I really enjoy the process that doesn't reveal the photograph straight away. On a digital camera you can look at the photo right away and be satisfied, sometimes prematurely. On film, you can't do that, you keep on shooting and exploring some deeper levels of creativity. You focus on your subject, emotion, composition. You are not distracted by continuous chimping ;)

Here are a few photos made with the model/photographer Kayt. Shot on Portra 400 and Trix400 films. You can see I was experimenting a bit with light and settings on my camera.

I think some photos in this gallery are better than others, still; the happiest moment for me is always when I press the shutter. In case of Pentax67ii, it's a loud and beautiful: Ka-chunk!

Meeting Brooke Shaden

Few weeks ago, I was really lucky to meet an art photographer Brooke Shaden who visited London.  The meetup took place in Green Park, London and quite a few people turned up. It was a fantastic opportunity for me as Brooke is one of my favourite photographers.

She is super talented and I love her positive attitude towards life and passion for creativity. If you are not familiar with her work, you can have a look here.

Brooke was really friendly with everyone and kindly gave away lots of free hugs. She also patiently posed for photos; here's a few I shot.

I would love to meet Brooke again and talk for hours about art, photography, passion, creativity. Who knows, maybe it will happen. You never know :-)
