In the absence or real people to take photos of......I use aliens....

The Blind Poet aka KiwiVagabond on Ipernity
this will give a wider perspective on my mainly analogue and sometimes digital love affair with all things photography. I am often months behind what I am really doing on Aminus3 and I must confess to falling off the daily wagon for some time in 2017. You may find some articles I have written on Ipernity (and they are old too)but you may find interesting. I am enjoying trying to get back into Animus3 this year after that getting off the daily image treadmill time, which one can end up with one posting meaningless images just because you are addicted and want to be in that image number bracket.

I love this atmosphere, beautiful processing !

@Helodie: Merci Helodie.
The processing is developing the paper in chemicals out of the camera, scanning and inverting the image. There is little tweaking in this. The old fibre paper is expired in 1980!
Anything that looks like the point of focus on the hand and fingers in the bow, that is purely how the old brass lense works......................crisp focus in the center and softening to the outside.....

Very interesting method, thank you for sharing. I really like the result !

It's actually lovely that you use aliens, they're unique! There's actually a beautiful sense of isolation that I like with this one. The ominous smiling figure behind is great as it's out of focus too. I appreciate this image a lot!

@Abena: Thanks Abena..........glad you like it..........that lens has a narrow DOf.......hence his out of focus smiling mate.............:-)
