shadow play

As always, if you have questions, objections, worries or praise, and especially if you found your picture and want it removed, feel free to contact me. I will get back to you as soon as possible. You can also read my full disclaimer, if you are interested.

 

One of my plans for this trip was to shoot some carnival pictures. It’s really not my kind of tradition and I find it rather strange, so I needed to force myself a little to go to an event that usually made me hide at home with a bunch of 50s sci fi films when I still lived around here. Well, today I really went for it and braved the crowds, the horrific music and well, everything else. I came back with 5 rolls, 4 cheap Fuji colour rolls shot with Nancy and one roll of Velvia 100 shot with the Rollei. Tomorrow I still have the parades to shoot and will probably blow the rest of my colour film on it. In any case, I have a headache now after all the terrible music and I sure hope that this self-inflicted torture was worth it in the end!

It was rather dark there, so I was going for going for the contrast.

Gritty, but I like it anyway.

I still need to practice these analog public transport shots.

She’s making her opinion very clear, I think.

Long long ago I took a similar picture with my Zorki 3C. It definitely wasn’t this sharp.

Focus guesstimation worked.
