Photography as Painting.

Photography is an art. Why not mix it with the painting? Here are a few small tips to turn your photos into paintings real :)

I recently decided to make some shots of nature with my Diana. I did not wanna get the usual picture clear and sharp, but I was aiming at a more “painterly” effect. Using a film of 200 ISO and setting the time of B in order to manage the duration of the opening of the shutter, I use the sunlight covered by trees to obtain the desired effect. The shutter aperture must be minimal to avoid the risk of burning the film during long exposure (4/5 seconds). I am attaching photos that came better during this experiment.

Note the similarity to the paintings made ​​with watercolors or, in some cases, the effect of oil on canvas.

For these last two photos I tried adding to it a double exposure. In my opinion, makes it more than a single exposure .

    Useful Guidelines on Shooting with Ultra Wide Lenses

    Wide-angle lens are further divided into sub-classifications: Wide, ultra-wide and ultra-ultra-wide. Based on current standards, wide lenses for 35mm cameras are those with focal lengths ranging from 24 to 35mm. Lenses are considered ultra-wide if they have focal lengths from 17 to 21 mm, and ultra-ultra-wide if from 12 to 16mm. The New Russar+ is a 20mm lens; hence it falls under the ultra-wide classification. If you have an ultra-wide lens or if you intend to get the Russar+, you might as well make the most out of your precious investment. Read on for a few guidelines on shooting with ultra-wide lenses.
