A more unorthodox B&W processing of an image.
When my uncle died my cousin was going through his possessions and found this little Rollei 35 T in flawless condition. The smallest 35mm camera ever made, it has a viewfinder but lacks any way to properly focus and requires the user to make use of the hyperfocal scale on the lens that extends out of the body. I can't wait to use it - it's such a novelty.
Another camera from my collection. I need a photo of each camera for my website and also for my Flickr page, so I think I'll slowly be working my way through the collection over the next few days.
I decided to give the "El Bokeh Wall" (as seen on DIY Photography) a try and came up with this. I needed a subject and also need some photos of my camera collection so grabbed my Zorki, my new grid and threw the red gel on there for effect. I'm not entirely happy with the result but the entire evening playing with my flashes was a good learning experience for the future.
My friend in the photo was telling me some extremely good news about his new business and his smile shows his happiness as only he can express it.
The sign in the bottom right corner says that the train is under video surveillance. At the same time, everyone in the train that evening had a more solemn or suspicious look to themselves, especially the woman with the scowl.
