Portraits

Portraits are the best way to connect me with the viewer, to tell him about my feelings when I was taking a particular photograph. I have started to shoot few years ago when I bought an old russian camera – Zenit 11. After first roll I knew this is it. In fact I started to shoot digital but whenever I saw my pictures, they seemed to be flat and empty. When I tried shooting film the very first time, I was totally in love with the results. Photography became a window to the past, to the world which no longer exists. I could almost touch the memories. It’s very easy to grab a digital camera and shoot photos like a machine gun. After that we can delete 99% of pictures and say that 1% which left is our work. It is not. With film photography we can learn how to be patient and how to respect every single frame on film. Photos taken on film are a true piece of art. You can make a lot of copies, but there is always an original – your very own work. When you take pictures with digital camera, your photos are only virtual. They don’t really exist. In film photography it’s very hard to be tempted to make shooting photos easier, when you don’t have a camera which will relieve you from everything. You’ve got the power and control to make the photo your very own work. From the start to the end.
