  • Here are some photos I took with the Agfa Silette ๐Ÿ™‚ Most of them were out of focus again, I still have a few things to learn hehe ๐Ÿ˜€ Some were converted to B&W because they barely had any color.

    So what do you think: Analog photography, Yay or Nay? ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. We all are on a learning journey. Just keep practicing …. until you become Master of your Life. Nice job and I really enjoyed your work! Thank you. Love, Amy

    2. Hmmm…Well film does give a special feeling that no digital effect can re-create….If you like that, i think it’s worth to experiment more. Have you been shooting with film long? You could try using different types, slide film for example gives out vibrant colors but it’s more sensitive to wrong exposure. You could even try expired film…that could give you some nice surprises ๐Ÿ˜€

      • Yes it does, I will keep practising ๐Ÿ˜€ Hmm not at all, this is my third roll of film, so i’m still a noob haha ๐Ÿ˜€ I will try to use expired film next, i’ve seen some photos online and it seems pretty interesting ๐Ÿ˜€ My camera is an Agfa Silette, it’s almost 60 years old! ๐Ÿ™‚

        • Third roll? Hmmm…yes you are still a noob…hehehe ๐Ÿ˜€ Just googled the camera, it’s really cool! Did you have it in the family or you bought it? My first camera was my dad’s Zenit TTL, still have it but it’s not working anymore ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I did shoot tons of film in the first year of photography in college, we developed them as well but the next 2 years were all digital…Didn’t do much film after that…

            Yes it belongs to my mom ๐Ÿ™‚
            Oh you should try to repair it! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ film photography is so cool! I know a few friends of studied it as well, unfortunately i didn’t, i only had one semester of digital photography :s
            Come on, you need to get back on that horse! ๐Ÿ˜€ haha stupid expression, but it fits the situation! xD

            • ๐Ÿ˜€ ah very nice! It has extra value if it was in the family already…Hahaha, i’d love to get back on the horse and i really want to have that camera repaired. Something inside the mirror popped out and the mirror doesn’t move anymore. It might be easy to fix…but there are no camera repair shops close to where i live now. I’m sure i will be able to find something in Vienna…

            • Yes it does ๐Ÿ˜€ Yeah that sucks, I hope you do get it fixed, that’s a good camera! ๐Ÿ™‚ I know you’re saving money, but you could also buy a cheap one for now, you can find a bunch of them for sale at lomography.com ๐Ÿ˜€ I like this site, it has a bunch of cool cameras and film and all that stuff!

            • Ooooh, don’t give me such ideas! ๐Ÿ˜› I will say that you were the reason why i bought a ton of cameras and didn’t make it to Austria…hahahaha. I also have a Praktica L and a Voigtlander Vitessa from my Austrian grandfather ๐Ÿ™‚ Only the Praktica is working though…I will surely look if i can have them repaired. They are all cool cameras with emotional value as well ๐Ÿ™‚

    3. Definitely yay! It’s a tricky business, but a good pic is a lot more rewarding than one taken with a digital camera, at least in my opinion. Do you work in the darkroom too, or do you drop the films of to a store when you’re done? I’ve done a bit of “darkrooming” too and love the handmade feel you get. But it can also be very frustrating.
      But anyway I am still very much beginning with this as well, and unfortunately, the darkroom I used to use got closed just recently so right now everything on hold.
      Anyway, keep at it!

      • It sure is, analog photography also has nostalgia attached to it and I think that’s what makes it so fascinating ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve never used the darkroom but I’d like to, i just take the rolls to a photographer and he takes care of it, after that i scan them and get rid of the whiteness using photoshop ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m using a 60 year old Agfa to take these photos, it belongs to my mother :3 oh it sucks that they closed, that’s quite a rare thing to find nowadays :s I’d love to take a look at your photos ๐Ÿ˜€

        • I agree, the nostalgia is a big part of the impact C: I might have to start taking my rolls somewhere too, would be a shame to stop taking analog just because the darkroom is no longer available. I’ve been using an Olympus OM-10, which was my dads ๐Ÿ˜€ I guess these cameras often come as family heritage nowadays.

          • That’s a very nice camera! ๐Ÿ˜€ I have a Minolta 7000 as well but it’s not working properly, i don’t understand what’s wrong with it :s

            How was your Christmas? ^^ Happy new year to you as well! ๐Ÿ˜€

            • Thank you, I quite like it C: I imagine that would be quite a good camera as well, too bad it doesn’t work :C I have the same situation with a Zeiss Ikon Contina. I can’t figure out why it doesn’t work and apparently no one knows how to fix those anymore :/

              Oh, the usual, spent time with the family and ate a lot ๐Ÿ˜€ How ’bout yours?

            • Yes it’s a good camera but it completely ruins the rolls, with 95% of the photos coming out as complete black :s I think that the shutter doesn’t go up when we press the button, it seems to be a common problem with old slr’s, maybe that’s the problem with yours as well! I’m not sure how to fix it, maybe a bit of WD-40 will do the trick but, who knows. I might try it! ๐Ÿ™‚

              Hahaha that’s what a good Christmas is all about! ๐Ÿ˜€ Pretty much the same, had family over, which was awesome, ate a lot of traditional food from Madeira and played card games, exchanged gifts, saw the fireworks and I guess that’s it! ๐Ÿ˜€
