I am not a photographer

Life with expired Agfas

with 3 comments

Hi.

Haven’t been around for a while, due to some lame excuses which I’m sure you do not give a damn.

So let’s cut to the chase.

I’ve recently got an expired bulk apx 400 from ebay.  Since I’ve run out of any sort of developer I’ve tried tmax, which does not seem to be a good idea. Anyhow, some results;

and a chilly couple;

just let it go mate, she won’t run away;

moving to a new office, ah the D-211;

a couple of students in the university accidentally burned the pollens on the grass coming from poplars, probably with a cigarette. right they are at the back, with the hose, kinda freaked out.

if I’d were to submit this to deviantArt, I’d probaby go with; photography >> photojournalism… how uncool that would be.

and some Agfa Vista 200;

I like this one very much, don’t know why, doesn’t seem so special;

Hope everyone’ doing fine.

Nothing really.

Some shots on tri-x and neopan 1600 are what I’ve got for now. Some of them are already on my DA account, but eh.

Anyway, this weirdo image is something from the artsy fartsy the scanner. I think it didn’t like the original photo and wanted to add some spirit. Seriously, I don’t know what happened here, the print seems nice but the neg scan (superia 200) is on the way to  the Metropolitan.

Finally a selfportait, fishermen town style.

Take the picture of…

Back from holiday… Some rolls to be developed,  and some digital stuff to get organized.

Anyways, quite irrelevant but today I remembered something. Back in my photography class, my instructor saying; each time just before you release the shutter, always ask yourself; what am I actually taking the picture of?

This, I never do. Never.

Silly. Whatever.

Hopefully, I’ll start submitting again.

Take care everyone.

It’s finally over. I’ll be on vacation for a couple of weeks.

Since I’ll not be around for some time, I wanted to submit some silly stuff tonight. It was interesting to see, while I was browsing through some old photos, that I’ve shot so many pictures of photographers in action.

015

I automatically react when I see someone photographing something and take a picture of the scene regardless of any purpose.

Weird. So many photographs I’ve browsed through tonight. And from the very old negative scans, I found this one.

006

This is a portrait of Suha. Developed by a kid in a small lab. I remember, this was the roll that I decided to learn the film thing and process everything by myself. Thanks to my decision, now I’m able to take much better portaits of Suha;

005

Speaking of portaits;

008

Most of the people that I show my photos like this portrait of Guliz. However if I were to submit a portrait of her to some place, I guess I’d prefer this one;

007

since this is more… her. There could be anybody sitting in front of that window.. I don’t know.

Anyways. This is a photo of an ass;

010

And this is the bobosh;

009

Most of the time I think that the reason I like bw photography is the feel, the texture that I could only get with film. I feel like I may like any photo, no matter what the subject is or whether the compsition is balanced or not, if it has that ‘feel’, if you know what I mean.

For example this photo of my mother that I’ve shot on a sunday morning breakfast;

 012

is a candy for my eye not because of the subject but because of the light and the texture. As it is in the case of Guliz, in front of the window.

Of course, it is not always about that. There are some stuff I like because of the moment it captures;

011

What is so special with a flying bird, eh? When you capture it, it turns out to be special. A stupid bird that you would never notice while walking by.. Or a sudden look that you catch in a quite random moment;

013

Yay for photography.

A photography blog should contain photographs…

Photographs about… Enjoying the lake with Efes maybe;

a001

Or throwing stones.. to the lake;

a002

This little girl was passing by;

a003

while we were taking pictures of this and that;

a004

Quite irrelevant shots, eh? I’ve got plenty. Such as… Photos of careful scientists;

a006

or girls hesitant about dress for a night out;

a005

I even have photos of vegetables growing in a fridge…

a008

That’s the beauty of the blog thing I guess. There definitely be more to come…
