Ready for Winter! (Orwo N74+ Pushed to 800)




Portrait of an elderly sitting on a platform adjacent to a shop. It was evening, and I asked for a photo. He agreed.

Shot nearby my home (in Ajmer), in an area previously famous by the name "Chungi Naka", having a multitude of stores and makeshift vegetable carts (fresh from nearby villages!).

During my childhood, I used to visit this area a lot. Now, with the construction of a new flyover, the area has been cleared. It has lost its active identity (at least to me!). Most of the shops are gone. However, as evening approaches, people socialize near shops and have tea-chai-bidi, as usual. But very few people know me now (penalty for growing up and moving, alas!).

Shot on Orwo N74+ film pushed to 800 with a 50mm Nikon.

Sigma DP2 Merrill at 1600 ISO and film like appearance (Feat. Namma Bangalore Habba Event Pics)

Set of images taken at flea market during the night of Namma Bangalore Habba event (20th-Aug-17) at Sankey Tank Lakeside.
The images were shot with Sigma DP2 Merrill at 1600 ISO. These foveon sensor based cameras are notorious in high iso situations. The idea was to keep shutter speed close to 1/125 with aperture wide open. However, in many case it has gone down to 1/30. While processing the raw X3F files in SPP, additional grain feature was enabled to render film like appearance. The results look similar to a 400 ISO film pushed to 1600.

Konica Pop at IISc!

Konica Pop is 80s point and shoot film camera with 36mm fixed focus lens. Fixed shutter of 1/125 but variable aperture F/4 ~ F/11 and Flash dependent upon selected ISO.
I got one from home, that belonged to my late uncle. My early childhood was captured using Konica. I still get fascinated whenever I hold it!

Some shots at IISc taken using Konica Pop camera with a roll of Ilford HP5 (expired) film. Stand developed using HC110.
