Two days ago, snow fell overnight and frost came. Outside the window we saw a beautiful view. I loaded an old Italian Ferrania P30 film into the analog Minolta and went to photograph. This film was made from cinematographic film used in many classic films (e.g. Federico Fellini) and is characterized by a contrasting, rather dramatic character. I wondered how to photograph winter vistas correctly with such a high-contrast, low-sensitivity film. They, after all, are also high-contrast and are often a trap for photographers. So I decided to use a lesser-known developer called POTA. This developer was originally designed to correctly photograph nuclear explosions (it has a spread of 20EV). This makes it great for contrasting negative materials. Of course, these images capture the classic old style of photography, it is not a negative with a modern, fine-grained formula. I, however, really like this less digital style, I think I've had an overabundance of those perfect, perfect digital images lately. I think the use of a better lens (this zoom is not a benchmark of quality, by the way, most kit-zooms are not outstanding designs) should definitely improve the detail and microcontrasts. I will gradually publish analog winter images in this section.
