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 .

    How to Develop Photos on Stone in a Darkroom

    I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!

    Photographic Pairs

    When a photographer encounters a pair, an instinct rushes in, "Is this a special, intimate moment I just stumbled on?" Or else, those accidents of two objects, two birds, two swaying plants camping together especially for your photo. This might not be the case, but it's still a pleasant thing for patterns and quirks to find their way into an everyday shot.

    Janne Parviainen: Light Magician

    Janne Parviainen is a 35-year-old artist from Helsinki, Finland. He is both a painter and a photographer but sometimes, he swaps his painting tools for light and creates illuminated pieces of art. Abandoned places are his favorite places for shoots because, according to him, "there's so much lived life and stories in abandoned places, they are the lost diaries and photos turned to dust of lives that once bloomed."

    Monochromatic, geometric, symmetric: to mix the different elements of aesthetics into the candid rules of street photography is a strict task to bear, much more to be consistent with it. However, Mexican street shooter Moisés Rodríguez's oeuvre boasts these master qualities.
