Garden is my album of photographs of flowers and related to them. Actually not always in gardens, they can be in sunny forests or grey fissures in the concrete.

I am not happy with 35mm film quality. Grain is very distracting and the colors seems a bit harsh comparing to colors from medium format film, at least what I see comparing in internet galleries. And I don’t know if it worth it because although the medium has a particular beauty I cannot find a scanner that can transmit it to the digital medium. I sent the film camera to replace light seals and with that I would be fixing several malfunctions: stuck shutter (I fix it), broken link between iso knob and shutter (I fix it), there no exists anymore the batteries for light meter and electronic shutter velocities (I imported weincell equivalents from US), there are just standard films but not variety and much less the professional line (again I am importing them). With this expenses I think I am going to come back to watching TV!!! hehe

Instead my digital cameras works even malfunctioning, I can’t blame the camera for mistakes. I have two rolls of Portra 160 for use proximately. I think I do it more because I don’t like that machines are not being used than love for film. When child I always didn’t like film because the colors always were different from my memory, today I like it but exactly to exploit it inaccuracies.

I was thinking in film versus digital because today went to the technical service to see the camera, but without luck. I post today a photo from my Sony R1, as any digital camera is great to experiment with a lot of things, in this case a long exposure during day, after that I processed the image in lightroom, I used the trial version, but Photo Ninja won my heart so I purchased the latter and not the former, but sure I get some nice images.

Road To Capua River

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

Time ago a classmate from Arequipa invite me to go to Capua Waterfalls, this is near Yura in the Southwest of Perú. They aren’t amazing or big waterfalls, but the path give time to talk and walk under the sun of the desert. It was a pity that she injured a foot. I was experimenting with the camera, an Olympus bridge with small sensor, so you are going to see images stitched with empty spaces and perhaps photographs that could be better, but I like them so I don’t worry so much. After see the limitations in resolution and functions I decided to go with a better camera, and the Olympus was very good.

The Olympus is so good that even with malfunction as is was in that time and today took good images.

endure the time

In those times I was trying digital filters, today I don’t do much of that anymore, I feel them as distractions.

Naturally I took several photos of her, and to her, not for the blog, for that reason I’m just posting two of those because she is not recognizable and weren’t posed but composed by me.

And that’s Capua, certainly it’s a small place but in there is no place where there isn’t nothing to be recorded. It’s incredible to me how can live people there under a Sun so strong, but then again to them is incredible that I can walk with light clothes in my city that to them has a very cold weather.

Also was great to find spots with so much green:
