week 22: strange stories

once upon a time... in black and white, color negative and x-pro.

the initial concept for this photo project was to create some pictures with a fairy-tale vibe. this changed quite a bit during the time from the first ideas to the actual photo shoot. the result is more like a fashion shoot with weird accessories, dark and strange, with a hint of melancholy. although there are still some fairy-tale-like objects in the shots, for example the apple and the mirror.

i shot a roll of lomography lady grey 400 in my holga:

a roll of lomography color negative 800 in my diana f+:

and a roll of lomography peacock 200 in my batacon teleflash:

i also took some pictures with my digital camera, you can check them out here: digital
i think i perhaps like them better… well, at least after they have “fallen into photoshop” ;)

and finally: big thanks to my lovely sister for modeling and for putting up with my weird ideas! :)

have a look at all the analog pictures here: strange stories

    Well, even after a photoshop session the digital pics do not boast that vintage and melancholic look the analogue photos have. Great job.

    @olivier_g yes, i do read a lot and watch lots of movies/tv shows... but i don't think that i have a specific source for inspiration. those ideas just pop up in my head ;) plus i rather create something new than just take pictures of something that is already there.
