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 .
