Balcony door portraits

Light quality is extremely important to a photographer, just like snow for an Inuit. We have  countless names for the different types of light while any average people would only call them “strong” or “weak”. The amount of light we get is very easy to…

Livin’ Streets on Ektachrome

Walls are usually not the most exciting subjects to photograph. To use medium format slide film to do that is even more strange and could be considered as some sort of crime by some. After all we live in a time when both film and labs which are able…

Welcome the Sun

Finally, the Sun has returned to us and days are once again long enough for me to have a chance to enjoy the light even after working hours. To celebrate this blessing I have finished shooting the roll of Velvia which I have started last…

Last roll from 2013

Yet another quick post with little written content but with a bunch of random snapshot images. This is what I end up with, when I carry the same roll of film over weeks and only occasionally have a chance to shoot.  I am basically on…

Istanbul through Pentacon Six TL

Finally, I am back with a post again! It has been a long time I could write anything. The reason of this long break is that I have got married plus I have changed job and country to live. From September I will live in…

Olympus OM 4-Ti black

So far I have been writing mostly about classic cameras with full mechanical construction with only one exception the Cosina CSM with electro-mechanical shutter. It was because my collection fundamentally consists of such mechanical beauties. But time goes on and my camera count is also…

Collaborative street art

Sometimes you can unexpectedly run into true pieces of artwork even on the most odd locations. So did we in Barcelona during one of our typical disoriented big-city exploratory walk.  Eszter spot the scene which can be easily called as installation, but in the same…

Underpass music

I admire very much photographers who are able to do street photography of any kind either shooting invisibly or by asking strangers for a photo. Although I love these kind of photographs I was not dare to do anything like this therefore. As you have probably noticed…
