    Who Let The Dogs Out? 50 Best Film Photographs by Synchrodogs

    Young Ukrainian photographers Tania Shcheglova and Roman Noven—collectively known as Synchrodogs—prefer Contax film cameras over digital. It might be risky to shoot analogue for fashion jobs, but since their contemporary and crazy imaginative style is founded on "risqué," more clients, commissions and a book deal naturally followed.

    Chernobyl/Prypiat: A Silent City

    September 2011, Marije (s0y) and I finally took the trip we wanted to do for so long, visit Ukraine, Kiev and in particular, the 30km exclusion zone around Chernobyl, with the ghost town of Prypiat. When I saw the bumper carts, I almost cried. Afterwards, we were exhausted; there was so much to take in. And bringing too many cameras is never a good idea. ;)

    FED 50 Automat

    This little baby cost me $25 on ebay. It's a great almost-point-and-shoot camera for lower speed films, and a fantastic alternative to an LC-A if the $100-$250 is a little steep for you. It's a little larger than an LC-A, but the freedom of the battery-less selenium light meter more than makes up for that!

    The Creation of Panoramic Macros

    It's the photographic accidents that sometimes bring out some new twists and thoughts about photography. Things you never really thought about in the first place. Just imagine the lens of your panoramic camera gets loose and creates some very interesting new results? How about that?

Here, the Zhuzhalka is a Ukrainian group of young photographers. These photos are by artists from Donetsk city in eastern Ukraine.

    Perhaps it's a bit strange to visit a cemetery on a holiday, but after two days of busy Kiev, a day trip to Chernobyl and Pripyat, and lots of enthusiastic people who kept offering us vodka, s0y and I needed some silence. And this monumental cemetery gave us exactly what we needed, and more.
