Photography is one of my secondary hobby. When I was fourteen, my father presented me a photo camera. See nearby, it's Smena. I'd already been infected with amateur radio virus, but that didn't stop me to learn something new. And I really did! I learn to look, I learn to see but most important, I learn to observe. I never had a properly photo laboratory; for that, initial it was used the bathroom but because of obstruction, later I appealed to a specialized laboratory. Coming back, about Smena, don't think that's a crappy camera! All what I learn about photography, I learn with it. Many peoples, seeing my albums, they ask me what camera I use for such beautiful pictures.
In 2001 I've buy a Nikon (1,4/50) and a flash, both retired from the local press, and thus the area was expand. My wife have a portable digital web-camera, a Kodak, and I use some time to time because download pictures direct on computer, but it is out of words against of the opportunities of a classic camera: aperture is immovable (a few empiric measurements given values about 11 and 16) and the shooter speed is very slow, function by the lighting conditions.
By principle, I'm for the film-camera, not as old-fashion but because a digital camera is limited, as frames, to its internal memory; to reload, is much easy to find films than a floppy-disk or a computer for download, mostly when is used in trips. In those case, could be used films unlimited as number, without fear about bad weather damages. Let's no talk about the opportunities of the films sensitivity. Move the mouse over nearly two pictures, shooted in the same conditions. You are free to comment and to criticize, they are welcomed.
Usually, when I'm out of place, taking a camera with me. The greatest oportunities are in trips. Then I supply with films and I decide the destination of every camera: family pictures, landscapes, details, etc. Move the mouse to the left to see a few of my pictures. Enjoy your watch!|
