Hi,

there is no retouching or treatments. This is a CN-41 film scan using an epson 4490 scanner. Why post to vintage when you can still shoot with a 30 year old, 35mm camera :)

Film forever!

Oh, if they appear blurry, its becuase it was shot at 400iso film, 1/30sec, at f2.

Lastly, I can post all the pics here because half of them are nudes/topless. We wrapped this shoot in 20mins (36 exposures).

Thanks!!!

If you like these, like my facebook too :) Many thanks!!!

I like the soft feel of these. Nice pose in the first one with the cigarette. I'd like to see more light on her eyes though, and some on her lower half in the first one to bring out some detail in her dress. I'm also interested in what film you used.

Very cool. Did you develop these yourself?

I don't find those photos that appealing with such black eyes, and extremely overall dark image. Your images should speak for themselves regardless if you captured them using film or digital sensor.

I agree. I do like the vibe of the photos, though.

I used a color negative film by Lomography... Its a specialty film. I just get the negatives developed at Walgreens. I also shoot with TMAX, but id have to wait for the lab to develope them and Im really inpatient.

As far as posting the rest in G/N, I was never accepted in there so I cant hahaa.

@happysnapper, I guess these arent for everyone.

@all
They are meant to be dark images. Everyone always shoots happy, ultra sharp rich images which is great, but not what I am into. With things like instagram replicating what is known as vintage, I just choose to shoot old school. I have a Canon 7D which I use quite often, but nothing seems to feel better than to nail the shot without an LCD to show you a preview, a built in histogram, light meter, autofocus etc.. This particular camera has none of it. Its basically a way for me to stay fresh and not be so dependent on the tools built in my camera.

As far as making things dark, including the eyes, its just my view on the shot. Many photogrpahers would have opted for a more gradual smokey eye look (which really didnt start being popular till the 80's) and in my opinion, would have completely ruined the shot as the styling and makeup would have not reflected the theme.

Most of my shots are more somber looking, with dark eyes. Like this one:
