I just answered a question on Tumblr about equipment and lost the thread pretty quickly
I felt a bit sorry afterwards, so I thought I just make a post about all the frequently asked questions about my equipment:)
What cameras do you use?
For film, mostly a Minolta X 300, a Yashica FR and a little Olympus XA.
For digital, I use a Fujifilm X Pro1.
What lenses do you use?
I prefer 35mm lenses. But sometimes I use 50mm in low light, because I don’t own a fast 35mm lens.
What film do you use?
Mostly Kodak Gold 200 or Kodak Ultra 400. I never really cared about my film because I always feel that when I scan it and edit it afterwards, it all looks the same in the end. At least in low light :)
Do you develop your film on your own?
No, unfortunately not. I just take them to my local drugstore.
What scanner do you use?
I own a CanoScan 9000F Mark2 and Im completely in love with it.
What program do you use to edit your pictures?
I use Lightroom for all my editing and to archive my photos. I’ve never really learned how to use photoshop.
How do you manage to take pictures on film in low light?
I don’t have a “trick” or anything. I just use a fast lens, like f 1,7, and choose a low aperture, like 1/30 or 1/15. I don’t even use high iso film, because its just too expensive for me. When I scan the film, I try to make it as bright as possible and if its necessary, I make it even brighter in Lightroom afterwards.
Hope that helps a little bit <3
So many people send me messages asking me how old I am. And I never answered them because I always felt a little bit ashamed. I felt like my photos, my thoughts and my whole being doesn’t really match my age. And I definitely felt like I should have accomplished more than what Ive done by now. But I don’t want to feel bad about anything anymore. Im 24 and I can’t change it but I can change my thoughts about it. So I will try to accept that its okay that Im completely in love with my pictures and that Im obsessed with poetry and song lyrics, like a 14 year old girl. And when Im honest with you, I don’t want to change anything of that. I would die for all the stuff that I love. And I think the first step to feel better about it is to be open. It probably doesn’t sound much to you but its a big thing for me. Thank you for listening to this unnecessary (at least for you) stuff and being kind. It really helps me to get along<3
