5 Questions on Analogue Photography with Meghal Anukul

4

In this ongoing series "5 Questions on Analogue Photography with…" we send out the same set of questions to photographers. This time Bangalore's design student & photographer Meghal Anukul answered these questions and prepared a gallery of her photos.

Full Name: Meghal Anukul
Occupation: Student
City, Country: Bangalore, India

1. Tell us about yourself in three sentences maximum?
I happen to be a nosy 19 year old, who flashes her lens everywhere, pointing it at everyone, at everything. i love experimenting ; be it food, my cameras and even fashion!

2. Why do you still shoot analogue?
Analogue photography is so different from digital photography. No photoshop, just what you see, and what you capture in your trusty 35 mms! the whole process is amazing!

3. What photographic equipment (cameras, films, and accessories) do you usually have in your bag?
I always have this 25 year old Yashica range finder in my bag, along with some colored paper. But these days i have been carrying my apple green sprocket rocket too! I always have 35mm 400 ISO kodak film in my bag. yes, I do carry a huge bag all the time. bag-packs ftw!

*4. Share a trick of yours that will always result to a great photo. *
Well, one of my favorite trick is to combine some sheer colored paper and temporarily fix it in front of my camera lens or even by the film inside the camera. By doing so, the pictures always have that extra color contrast to em ! also,sticking fine thread along the corner of the film inside the camera, results in a very vivid lomograph.

5. What photographers influence your work?
Jacob Fellander is one photographer i really admire. he travels so much, and captures different parts of the cities and even countries on one film. his work really inspires me.

    A Salute to the Masters: Swing Festival in Como (A Tribute to Alexey Brodovitch)

    This year marks the 70th anniversary of the publication of one of the most influential photography books ever, "Ballet" by the photographer, art director, and graphic designer Alexey Brodovitch. Brodovitch took a series of photos of classical dance in a very unconventional way, using very slow exposure times, trying to catch the true essence of Russian ballets. For this article, I took a series of photos at the Swing Crash Festival in my city, Como, held in June 2015.

    A Salute to the Masters: R.I.P. (A Tribute to George Krause)

    This article is dedicated to the multifaceted American photographer George Krause and to his series depicting funeral monuments realized between 1962 and 1963. I was able to know about this series thanks to an important essay on photography written by former Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) Director of Photography, John Szarkowski. For this tribute, I loaded my trusty Praktica camera with a roll of Ilford film and took a series of photos in the Monumental Cemetery in my city, Como. Take a look!

    Angela Izzo on Shooting with the Diana Mini, Photographing Musicians, and Then Some

    While many of us can only dream of working with musicians and photographing them, Angela Izzo's job entails exactly that. Apparently, this is a fulfillment of her own dream that she had when she was younger. In this interview, Izzo talks about her beginnings which, of course, included going to as many shows and festivals as she possibly can; some of her most memorable on-the-job-experiences with the likes of The Doors, Lykke Li, Jack White, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and Chris Robinson Brotherhood; her inspirations and other interests; and her love for film photography and Diana Mini. And to those looking into fulfilling their own dreams of working in the same industry, Izzo also shares helpful advice based on her own experiences.
