The look I love

I started to shoot in analogic recently, the thing that has always attracted me is the image quality of the photographs, especially those photos taken by pushing the film’s asa. I find the grain of the anological photos is like the soul and the energy that the photographer decides to put during the development, mind you, of HIS roll. Slowly, experimenting, I am seeing that the results I can reach, express my way of imaging my photographs.

Right or wrong, a wrong development can damage the film but sometimes the results return something that can be appreciated and that goes well with the mental mood of the past moment.

Having the power to decide how to have the final product, the artistic vision that you imagined, the whole, in the tangible quality of the analogue is something that enhances your personal characteristics; you not only have files, strings of numbers that, even with all the possible adjustments in lightroom, are just mathematical calculations, almost clones. On the other hand, a small mustache of dust that slowly flies over to settle on the negative, that , yes, that is unique.
