Mahatma grained

The shade was preventing sunlight in the upper part of the frame, while there was some light in the lower part of the frame. The film was of ISO 400, hence the upper part is grained.

The cuff links

Used a color gel filter with flash light. Mismatch between 16 shot film-setting and advancing the film as per 12 shot lead to the overlap. The horizontal colored lines are may be due to the defective film processing by the studio old man.

Hello world!

My cousin's baby boy. I wanted to create some permanent photographs for him. While I made the setting of 16 shots per roll, but was winding as per 12 shots per roll setting, the picture in the next frame also got overlapped. The colors appear more saturated maybe because of the flash.

The Bust

A bust installed on the ground at MG Road. The sunlight was falling from the opposite direction. Since the film is of ISO 400 and it was daylight only a part of nostril could be captured. May be if the statue was white in color or the film was of higher ISO, the details would have been finer.

Blurry blurry

Night traffic at Marathalli Bridge. The red light thrown by the indicators of the vehicles going in the other direction can be seen on the left very faintly.

And the flag still hoists

Pillar of one side of KR Pura bridge at Bangalore. The flag on the pillar on the other side was torn, so avoided capturing it. It was cloudy day, the film being ISO 50 lead to pronounced vignetting, though the aperture used was "cloudy"

Photographic Thriller

First got the light painting done. Then used a deep blue filter with fisheye lens and took a selfie. Night, Indoor photography with lights off and flash on.

Metro Tracks

Exposure time was 2-3 seconds which resulted in the dreamy look.

Work in Progress

A gated community under construction in Bangalore. I could see only the building from the view finder. Even the borders of it were not properly visible. So I used 38mm lens. I was fortunate enough to fit those birds on the left into the frame. The guy who was biking was looking at me strangely, he did not understand why the hell would one take a picture of an incomplete venture. Dude, your ride bikes, you are good only with it!!!

A memory of Bhutan

A Buddhist Bell which I bought in Bhutan. It has got an elevated solar panel at the front and rotates in the clockwise direction with solar power. The noon lighting falling from the window was much brighter for the naked eye, but since it is only ISO 200, the photograph appears as if it is shot in the evening light.

Sleeping with ‪#‎DianaF‬+

I know there are many shutter-bugs around me. And they want me join them. But that was something too serious for me. I wanted something in the middle. Above point and shoot, but below DSLRs.
Then I had to learn ‪#‎Lomography‬ was what I was looking at. The moment I learnt it, I also had to realize, that a pretty creature called Diana was already waiting for me. She was questioning me with her eyes (lenses),”Where were you all these days?”. Her plastic curves were so inviting and she wanted me lay my hands on her, touch her and feel her. She knows life is not perfect. And so are men, women, photographers, films and cameras. She repeatedly says that she excuses mistakes and lets you learn from them. She never minds even if I am lazy or forget to roll the film for the next shot. Instead, she creates interesting overlaps. And she admits, she herself has got defects like chromatic aberrations, light leaks, vignettes, etc.. But she is always aware of them, and only utilizes them to thrill you. She is vintage, traditional, orthodox, old and out of fashion. She only uses the film. She is humble, never has too much of financial implications on you. She is adjustable, satisfied with 35mm film, but is excited if I use 120 film. Apart from all these, she’s got her own sweet nothings to tell me about. What else can a man expect from his darling partner? Or a photographer, from his darling camera.
Diana, I know that you love me. And you will come to know how much I love you, only in the coming days…muaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah….  <3 <3 <3
